Connecticut Republicans are honoring Newtown's First Selectman. Pat Llodra is set to receive the Women's Leadership Award at the State GOP Party's annual Prescott Bush Dinner, taking place next month.
State GOP Chairman Jerry Labriola says Llodra demonstrated exceptional leadership under extraordinary circumstances. The group also cited her lengthy experience in both the public and private sector and her record of leadership in the award announcement.
Labriola says Llodra has made service to others her life's work, whether it's serving on the PTA, the Board of Education or helping the community heal. Llodra served as Leader-In-Residence with the state Department of Education, was interim principal at Newtown High School, served on the Legislative Council and was elected First Selectman in 2009.
The 35th annual dinner is being held on May 20th.
