Phillips County Clerk Beth Zilla wore a Holyoke Dragons shirt to the office on Friday, and she wasn’t the only one dressed in forest green, gold and white.
Zilla explained her wardrobe to Colorado Secretary of State Wayne Williams when he dropped by to see how Phillips County is preparing for the Nov. 8 election. “My husband’s the football coach,” Zilla said. “We’re playing tonight.”
Williams liked the shirt so much he bought a Holyoke Dragons shirt on his way out of town.
Phillip County voters elected Zilla clerk and recorder in 2002. Previously, she worked for the Sedgwick County clerk and then transferred to Phillips County in 2000.
“I just love the people — well, most of the people,” she said with a laugh, and then corrected herself again, “most of the time.”
