Again, while I suspect no one is sitting around wondering what I think, I would like to share my thoughts about Elizabeth “Liz” Powell and this election.
Does the ability to morph under three different national presidents’ count for anything? Liz has served under Burrus, Guffey and Dimondstein and has been able to change and adapt as needed, usually for the betterment of the membership. No matter who ends up being national president she will provide a consistency needed at this elected position.
Liz has always been a fierce protector of her national president. She sits in the back of each NPC and takes notes so that the president isn’t caught off guard. She protects our money like it’s her own and greets all members as if they are long lost friends. I haven’t always agreed with her ways, but she gets it done and with minimal carnage.
Loyalty matters to me and the fact that she stuck with the team she ran with last time is important. I am sure that she was the number one person that everyone wanted to poach away from Dimondstein. Liz stood her ground and stayed with the team she ran with last election. I believe she will be rewarded for her loyalty and hard work.
