SMART PHONE USERS
For some reason, you can’t jump from page to page using your smart phone like you can with a desk-top or laptop computer. Instead, you have to type in the name of the page you want in the browser address bar. For example, if you want to see the page for Precinct Committeemen, type, “Coconino County Republican Committee Precinct Committeemen.”
We’re working on a fix for the problem.

MERLE HENDERSON, VOLUNTEER OF THE YEAR
The Executive Committee of the Coconino County Republican Committee (CCRC) is pleased to name Merle Henderson as its Volunteer of the Year. Mr. Henderson is a CCRC Precinct 56 Committeeman and is currently CCRC Second Vice-Chairman. During 2023, he provided many valuable services for our Committee, including and extending beyond his able and energetic service as PC and Second Vice-Chairman. Notably, with his wife, Karen Henderson, Merle spent many hours organizing and providing vehicles and banners for the Independence Day Parade, and oversaw and designed multiple booths and promotional materials for the CCRC exhibits at the Coconino County Fair. He also served as our representative to the Flagstaff Chamber of Commerce and to the Flagstaff First non-partisan action groups, not to mention many informal small group meetings. These activities and more did much to enhance the visibility and reputation of Republicans in Coconino County, not only during 2023, but in years before. It has been and continues to be a privilege to count Merle Henderson as an outstanding and positive example among our members.
