Women’s GOP group honors Sen. Mizell

At a recent Washington Parish Republican Women (WPRW) meeting, a resolution honoring and commending State Sen. Beth Mizell upon being elected to serve as President Pro Tempore of the Louisiana State Senate during the 2020 Regular Legislative Session was presented.

Mizell was elected by her peers to become the first Republican woman ever chosen to serve as President Pro Tempore of the Louisiana State Senate and was elected to become an “at-large” member of the Senate Republican Caucus, representing Senate Districts 1-13 of Louisiana.

Mizell became the first woman and the first Republican woman elected to the Louisiana State Senate from Washington Parish and was overwhelmingly elected to serve a second term as Senator, due to the attention to the needs of her District and State.

Mizell has distinguished herself through legislative achievement, and through her actions in securing “The Wall That Heals” for Washington Parish to honor the service of Vietnam War Veterans and recently securing the site for the Veterans Memorial Park on Louisiana Highway 10. She has been a leader in Washington Parish for many years, as a member of the Washington Parish Republican Women’s Club, and as an elected member of the Washington Republican Parish Executive Committee (WRPEC).

The resolution was declared to be adopted upon the unanimous vote by the Washington Republican Parish Executive Committee, acting as the official agency of the Republican Party in Washington Parish.

The beautifully framed resolution was donated by Everette Watson Framing.
