If anybody from Wood County wants to go, contact Dave Wille.

Dave Wille, First Vice Chair, will assume duties for the 7th Congressional District.

I can't imagine the 7th Congressional District without Marlys. She was a force...she had a strong and demanding personality that was the organizing force of the 7th CD Democrats. As formidable as she was in her official capacity she was an equally formidable friend. I met her over 25 years ago and immediately recognized she was the one "in charge". She was in charge then and remained in charge until she died.
I will miss her greatly.

Rest in Peace Marlys.
