At the end of Monday night’s meeting, Twin Falls County Democrats Chairman Jerry Marcantonio announced that he will be stepping down from his post so that he and his wife, Pat, can move to Boise. Making his announcement at the monthly Executive Committee meeting, June 17th, Jerry let us know that the July meeting will be the last one that he will chair. He is retiring from his CPA position with his work where he’s been for 22 years, and he and his wife Pat Marcantonio (one of our Precinct Captains) will be looking for a home in Boise. Jerry has served the TF County Dems ably as chairman for the past year, through numerous changes and a great deal of growth and he will definitely be missed.
Jerry and Pat are looking forward to moving to Boise to be near their children and grandchildren and to continuing being involved with the Democratic movement in the big city.
For the Twin Falls County Democrats, this move opens up both the chair position that Jerry held as well as the Precinct Captain position that Pat will be vacating. If you’ve been thinking about stepping up and helping out, this is the perfect time to join in and add your ideas and energy to the Democratic cause.
Jerry will head up our July meeting on the evening of July 15th, 2019 at 7:00 p.m. This is our usual monthly meeting which is always held on the third Monday of every month. It will take place at the County Annex West Building — 630 Addison Avenue West, Twin Falls — in the Planning & Zoning Room. All are welcome.
We want to offer our sincere thanks to Jerry for his service and dedication, and for his steady, unflappable attitude. It’s not easy to “herd cats” (or “Demo-cats,” as the case may be), but Jerry has done a fine job of it and we are very grateful. Thanks, Jerry! Nice job!
