ORLANDO -- Pledging to his GOP colleagues that he would be a "conservative voice" for the party, Tony Ledbetter, chairman of the Republican Executive Committee of Volusia County, was elected Congressional Dis. 6 chairman for the Republican Party of Florida at its annual meeting this weekend at the Rosen Centre Hotel. 

"I am honored by the support from the conservative leaders in Congressional District 6. I will be a conservative voice on the State Executive Board of the Florida Republican Party," said Ledbetter, of Ormond Beach, who will represent Volusia, Putnam, St. John and Flagler counties on the State Executive Board of the Republican Party for the next two years.

The amount raised was announced following the April 16-17 overnight event at the park that drew 3,000 people over a 24-hour period.

Grade: A+

The late Ray Kroc once said: "You're only as good as the people you hire." And look what he did with the McDonald's franchise. The same could be said of the organizers of the Southeast Volusia Relay for Life -- Ruth Anne Yeats and Debbie Alonzo.
