‘Dance’ cards for upcoming primary election beginning to fill up

(Continued)



Retired county Commissioner Roger Williams was at the conservation dinner and gave the invocation. Despite no longer being a public official, Williams is an associate director and said although he’s never been a farmer, he has always respected the work of those in the agricultural community.

James Babcock was introduced as the new county conservation district manager, succeeding Lynn Sandieson, who served more than 30 years. She was one of the hardest working officials and always was soft spoken but a great advocate for her program and her employees.

Greig’s wife, Christine, accompanied her husband to the luncheon and enjoys traveling with him. Like Cheryl Weiderspahn, wife of Crawford County Commissioner Chairman Francis Weiderspahn Jr., Cheryl does a lot of sewing and crafts. She showed me pictures of gifts she had made for Greig’s staff for the holidays. She noted the law says bosses can’t spend more than $20 each on gifts for employees. She made beautiful monogrammed ties for the male staffers.
