Sussex County Republican Women’s Club celebrates 70 years. The banquet hall at Mulligan’s Pointe in Georgetown buzzed with energy Sept. 28 as Republican candidates and activists joined Sussex County Republican Women’s Club club members in celebrating 70 years of advocacy and charitable giving in lower Delaware.
Marilyn Booker, club president and Sussex County GOP chair, opened ceremonies with observations on how involved women have been in the political process since the club’s founding in 1952. This was the goal of founder Lillian Martin. Between the current House and Senate, women represent 27% of the membership. Of note are the significant gains Republican women made in the House in the most recent election cycle. Of the 27 newly elected female representatives, two-thirds are Republicans. “How is that for taking an active role in the political process!” said Booker.
