PERRY COUNTY – Perry County’s two major political parties have elected officers for the year. Dale Groves, who has led Perry County Democrats for several years, has stepped down for health reasons. The new Democrat Party Chairman is Ryan Risse. The Central Committee consists of vice chairwoman Jody French; Don Sherry, secretary, and Mary Lee Smith, treasurer.
“It’s been a pleasure to serve in the capacity of the leader of the party,” Groves said. He was recently appointed co-chairman of the Democratic 8th Congressional District.
