COMMISSIONER D. KENT EVANS RECEIVES PARTY HONORS

The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) has notified District 4 Doña Ana County Commissioner D. Kent Evans that he has been awarded a Congressional Medal of Distinction and that he has been designated as a 2006 Republican of the Year from New Mexico.

NRCC Chairman Tom Reynolds also singled out Evans as the organization’s 2006 Businessman of the Year honoree for his work as honorary chairman of the organization’s business advisory council during the past year.

As a result, Evans and his wife have been invited to a March 15 dinner with President George W. Bush at the Washington, D.C. Hilton Hotel

Reynolds said the prestigious awards are given each year “to a select group of Republican business and community leaders from each state who have championed the free-enterprise system and supported the ideals of smaller government, lower taxes and less regulation.”
