Shirley Cooper Inducted into Bexar County Hall of Fame!
Long time Alamo City Republican Women member was finally inducted into the Bexar County Hall of Fame. She has been an activist for 40 years and has served as Campaign Manager for many candidates and there are not many elected officials or candidates around that she has not volunteered for. She is a past President of Alamo City Republican Women and has served on the board in many capacities and still does. In 2011 she was chosen as an Outstanding Woman of Texas by the Texas Federation of Republican Women. There have been many people inducted into the Hall of Fame, even this year, who have done nothing to further the cause of Republicanism compared to Shirley. One wonders who makes the decision regarding these inductees.
