On June 12, the Beaver County Democratic Committee re-elected two of their officers to serve additional four year terms, while ushering in a new vice chair for the first time in 29 years.
Current Chairman Stephen Dupree, and Treasurer Miles Newell, were unanimously re-elected in the offices they presently hold. Beaver County Young Democrats President Victoria Smith was elected as Vice Chair, replacing outgoing Vice Chair Judy Enslen who’s been serving in that capacity for since 1989. Joseph Bosh will remain as Secretary.
“I am so honored to have been elected Vice Chair and follow in Judy’s incredible footsteps. I strongly believe that we are on the brink of something great and I am excited to get to work with the rest of the committee to turn Beaver County blue,” said Smith.
The Young Democrats presented Enslen with flowers and a cake. Enslen received a standing ovation for her service to the party and to the community. She will still serve the party in other ways in addition to her full-time job as Beaver County Clerk of Courts.
Chairman Dupree said, “She has served this committee admirably for almost 30 years. While we will miss her in the day to day operations, we will still reach out to her to receive her wise council.”
The meeting was also the first meeting for newly elected committee people. Several new faces were among the party veterans, giving the party a fresh look for the foreseeable future.
Dupree added, “The Democratic party elected a lot of first time committee people, while welcoming back many with years of service. We will be contacting those who fell a little short of the required 10 votes on a write-in for the primary to see if they would still like to serve.”
