Local 223 Swears in New President

At 6 PM on February 19, 2020, Local 223 held a nomination meeting for the Office of President. Juanita Ray was nominated by Chairman Marc Little of Gas Division. Juanita soon found out that she would be running unopposed. Within a few minutes, the National Union was contacted, one official vote was cast and she was sworn in as President by Vice President Tim Cox. Per Article VI Section 7 of the Constitution and By-Laws of Local 223, Juanita will be installed as President of Local 223 following the announcement of the election results.

This is a proud day for Local 223 as Juanita Ray becomes the first African- American Woman to become President of Our Local. We look forward to her leadership as she replaces Mike Smith, who retired in December of 2019.
