NEW ALBANY —
The Floyd County Democratic Women’s Caucus announced the election of new officers during a recent meeting.
Jane Willman was elected as caucus chair, while Shirley Baird was selected as vice chair and Sharon Grabowski as treasurer.
Willman is a retired educator from the New Albany-Floyd County Consolidated School Corp. She said she plans on working with the Floyd County Democratic Men’s Club, Young Democrats and Indiana University Southeast College Democrats to help grow and build the party.
“I’m excited about the energy and enthusiasm the Democratic Women’s Caucus brings to Floyd County and our local Democratic Party,” Willman said in a press release.
Floyd County Democratic Party Chair Adam Dickey said he is pleased with the officers elected to lead the women’s caucus.
“The Democratic Women’s Caucus has elected an impressive slate of officers, all with deep roots in our community,” Dickey said in the release. “These women are real go-getters and are shining examples of the potential and talent that exist in our community.”
As an auxiliary organization of the Floyd County Democratic Party, the Democratic Women’s Caucus seeks to inspire, recruit and engage women in the political process through advocacy on issues that are important to women. The organization is open to women 18 years or older.
