Ambassadorship announcements usually don’t make it onto our radar, but President Trump’s nomination of my good friend and neighbor Sharon Day to be Ambassador to Costa Rica, made me take pause.
Sharon is deserving of this honor, and then some. I can think of no other person in the Republican Party that has sacrificed and done so much for her party.
Note to Sharon:
Did you know that you, Tony Fabrizio (Trump’s presidential pollster), Roger Stone (“Get Me Roger Stone”-Netflix), and I ( Your handsome, lovable and influential politico journo) all live within 3 miles of each other?
Who would have thought that outside of Washington, D.C. four of the most influential politicos reside so close to each other? Don’t you love the modesty? (Sarcasm)
Here is the official White House press release regarding Sharon Day’s nomination:
Sharon Day of Florida to be Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the United States of America to the Republic of Costa Rica. Ms. Sharon Day most recently served as co-chair of the Republican National Committee (RNC), having been first elected in January 2011 and reelected in 2013 and 2015. She has served the Republican Party at the local, state, and national level for more than twenty years, with a focus on engaging and empowering women candidates and activists, as well as strengthening state parties and volunteerism. She is an active political columnist and commentator.
Earlier in her career, she was the chief executive officer and vice president of Marketing of Stop Loss International, a general managing underwriter and reinsurance company, headquartered in Indianapolis. Ms. Day has also been active in community service, including as housing authority chair for the Broward County Housing Authority and as commissioner on the Florida Commission on the Status of Women.
P.S. to Sharon laughing at the “Scarecrow’s” expense will never get old 🙂
