Joannie F. Miller was sworn in recently as a member of District 3 of the Washington Republican Parish Executive Committee, representing the same parish district as Dr. Chuck Nas-saurer.

City Prosecutor David Merlin Duke administered the oath of office, where she affirmed her support of the Consti-tution and the laws of the United States and the state of Louisiana.

Miller was already on the job before her official swearing in, when she charged with creating the menu and handling the feeding for Fifth District Congres-sman Vance McAllister’s recent visit to the committee’s Red, White and Blue Suede Shoes Fun(d) Raiser. More than $1,000 was taken in to fund the future membership drive and activities.

Miller’s first meeting was held Tuesday, April 8 at Centenary Methodist Church in Franklinton.

On uneven months, the committee meets at the local city hall at 6 p.m.

Other members al-ready elected to serve are Cindi Condon, Gin-ger Corkern (secretary), Merlin Duke, Suzannah Fussell (treasurer), Kay Lewis, Beth Mizell (chairman), Darryl Peterson (vice-chairman), Lyle Schmitz, N.D. Simon and Randy Thomas.
