|Chamber installs new board members|
U.S. Congressman Rodney Alexander served Monday as guest speaker for the Winnsboro-Franklin Chamber of Commerce annual Banquet at the First Baptist Church in Winnsboro.
The event included the installation of the 2010 officers for the Chamber Board of Directors.
Howard Dee Smith was named the Chamber's new president, Blake Kramer was named vice president and Stephen Pylant was named treasurer.
The remaining board members for 2010 include Karl Broussard, Eric Day, DeLayne Donnell, Susan Easterling, Kay Huff, Jacqueline Johnson, Christy Montgomery, Paul Price, Jr., Sherry Anders Randall, Nathan Roberts, Lester Thomas, and Dustin Wright.
Ex-Officio members include Kay LaFrance-Knight, and Lindy Price.
Alexander, a Republican from Quitman who serves Louisiana's Fifth District, spoke on topics including the ongoing debate in Congress for health care reform and the Federal Emergency Management Agencies re-certification of the state's levee systems.
"I still think my job is to go to Washington and vote the way you would vote if you were there. Logistically, you can't go, so you hire people like me to do that," Alexander told the crowd.
Howard Dee Smith said his goal as president would be to continue those who held the presidency before him like outgoing president Lindy Price.
"Our goal is to continue the accomplishments of the Chamber. We have an excellent community and we need to continue to keep it that way and make it an economy people that people want to live in and more would want to move back to our community," he said.
The Chamber's new "Business of the Year" Award was presented to White's Ford, Lincoln & Mercury. Lindy Price received the Chamber Spirit Award.
Big Boy's Barbeque of Winnsboro catered the event, providing a dish of barbeque chicken, brisket, sausage and potato salad.
Gov. Bobby Jindal, the guest speaker for the 2009 and 2008 luncheons did not attend this year's event, citing a scheduling conflict. Jindal is expected to speak to the Chamber at a luncheon in April.
