Shawano County Democrats held their Election of Officers recently. Newly elected officer results include Patty Luff filling the Second Vice Chair (and membership) position and Carrie Pitt replacing longtime Treasurer Bob Koch. We wish to welcome them as well as wish them well on their new positions.
