NEW CASTLE — Editor, The News:
I want to acknowledge Lawrence County Republican Party chairman Gale Measel and his staff for hosting the very successful picnic at Pearson Park on Aug. 3.
It was the first picnic the Lawrence County Republican Party sponsored in many years and certainly the most successful with about 150 people in attendance.
The party is renewed and energetic. Divergent opinions are offered and treated with respect for the first time in many years. Gale and his committee are certainly a welcome addition to Lawrence County politics.
I hope they keep up their excellent work.
