GERALD, Mo. (AP)- After 20 years on the Franklin County Republican Central Committee in eastern Missouri, Alice Merrill is stepping down.
She’s earned the right. She turned 100 earlier this year.
The Washington Missourian reports that Miller’s final meeting as a voting member was May 8. New members will be elected in August.
Not that Merrill, of Gerald, Mo., is planning to take it easy. She’s still active in the community, still involved in politics, still plans to attend Republican meetings.
Merrill has been active in GOP politics since attending Washington University eight decades ago. As a committeewoman she helped numerous candidates get elected. Her philosophy was simple: Get out and knock on doors.
