Los Alamos Federation of Republican Women installed new officers Thursday during a special ceremony at the Hilltop House Hotel.

Longtime Republican Party leader JoAnn Johnson is the organization’s new president. Immediate past president, Marie Todd, is now vice president, Norma Tech is the organization’s secretary and Cathy Walters is the treasurer.

New Mexico’s National Committee Woman, Rosie Tripp, traveled from Socorro to attend the installation of new officers.

During her talk, Tripp commended all the members of the local group for their continued dedication. She called on the members to maintain their enthusiasm and to move forward towards future elections.

Tripp is married to state Rep. Don Tripp. She is serving her fourth term and was involved in selecting GOP presidential convention sites in both 2004 and 2008.

Tripp is now running for National Committee secretary.

“It just becomes something you want to do,” she said of her current committee service. “You share victories and defeats with members of other states, network and exchange ideas.”

This will probably be her last term, Tripp said.

“New Mexico is proud to have Rosie represent us,” Johnson said.
