Racine County GOP Recognizes Dona Poelman as this year's Anita Hunt Award Winner

On Friday, February 26, 2010, the Racine County Republican Party recognized Dona Poelman for her years of continued service to the Racine County Republican Party, State and Local Elected Officials and her ongoing desire to make Racine and Wisconsin a better place to live.

In honor of Anita Hunt, a long time conservative activist for the Racine County Republican Party, this award is given annually to a volunteer that has continued to serve the community, the candidates, and the party in an ongoing role.

"Dona has always been active in her own way and recently came back to us and said 'I'd like to take over the county fair booth,'" stated Bill Folk, Racine County GOP Chairman, "What was I to say?  She organized it, scheduled the volunteers and got things done.  She will be good for the Walker campaign and she remains a tireless volunteer for Racine."

Dona has served the County Party as a past Chairman and Vice Chairman and is currently the county co-chair for the Walker for Governor campaign.
