Friday night, Jefferson County Republicans honored a very special one of our own:
Part of the reason for that, of course, is time. These affairs are not meant to go on all night long, and a highlight of the night for many was when Governor Haslam presented the Lifetime Achievement Award to Barbara McAndrew, a woman whose contributions to the Republican Party in Tennessee are both numerous and legendary. The fund that the Tennessee Federation of Republican Women uses to support legislative candidates bears here name-the Barbara McAndrew Iris Fund. Many of us who are somehow involved in local political activities in Jefferson County owe Barbara McAndrew a debt of gratitude, and this writer owes her a great deal of personal thanks for her confidence in yours truly.
