The held their first post-reorganization meeting last Thursday, June 21st in Council Chambers. This reorganization and plan for the coming year differs from all of those in recent memory due to the youth and exuberance that will compliment the many years of experience and service.
Lisa Allen, recently voted in as chairperson, exemplifies this new breed of membership. Mrs. Allen, her husband, and young children are representative of a large percentage of Summit families.
Until now, The SRCC has lacked involvement of younger membership. In addition to Mrs. Allen, Elizabeth Bamonde has been elected Vice Chairperson. Ms. Bamonde is representative of upwardly mobile younger singles in Summit.
In her opening remarks, Mrs. Allen stressed a collaborative approach to the SRCC's efforts to promote an agenda and candidates who will maintain Summit as the desirable place to live.
Mrs. Allen also spoke about supporting candidates and policies at the county, state and national level who support traditional Republican values that have proved time and time again to create opportunities and promote growth and prosperity for all those who seek that opportunity.
In a departure from the Committee's past agenda of activities, The SRCC plans to host some events that will address topics relevant to a multitude of Summit residents including how to plan now in advance of the imminent expiration of the Bush tax cuts.
The SRCC also will be planning a series of events for younger residents who are interested in meeting people and sharing their thoughts on making Summit, Union County, and ultimately the United States of America the best possible place to live.
