I would like to add my recommendation for Richard Jacoby to be the next State Warden.  Richard is an active member of St. Mary Parish, Grinnell, and is completing another term as Grand Knight.  Through his passion and leadership our council has enjoyed renewed enthusiasm and direction.  Richard has spent time readying other officers and members for leadership roles.  His enthusiasm is shown in the success of the youth programs under his leadership.  Richard is passionate about the Knights of Columbus and is a strong force for their active presence in the Church and community of Grinnell.

Without hesitation I recommend Richard Jacoby, Jr. as the next State Warden.

This is an impressive list of candidates. Thanks to all of you who are running for office.

Naturally, given that I am in District 8 and serve as Warden therein, I know Brother John Zweibahmer the best, and I certainly support his bid to serve on the third-degree executive committee; for more information on John, click here. I also want to make clear to the other candidates for all offices that I am impressed and inspired by their desire to serve Christ's Church through vigorous action via the Knights of Columbus. Vivat Jesus!
