The Board of County Commissioners; Chairman Jeff Kinnard, First Vice-Chairman Brian Coleman, Second Vice-Chairman Scott Carnahan, Ron Kitchen, and Jimmie T. Smith, with Abby Madeiros, representing Citrus County League of Women Voters
The Citrus County Board of County Commissioners presented a Proclamation at their regular meeting on March 11, 2019 proclaiming the month of March 2019 as Women’s History Month.
American women have played and continue to play critical economic, cultural, and social roles in every sphere of the life of the Nation by constituting a significant portion of the labor force working inside and outside the home, along with providing the majority of volunteer labor force for the Nation.
Women of every race, class, and ethnic background served as early leaders in the forefront of every major progressive social change movement. Women have served our country courageously in the military, have been leaders, not only in securing their own rights of suffrage and equal opportunity, but also in the abolitionist movement, and emancipation movement, the industrial labor movement, the civil rights movements and especially the peace movement.
The Board of County Commissioners recognizes March 2019 as Women’s History Month in Citrus County and calls the observance to the attention of all citizens.
