Committee names Bartlett Florence First Citizen

Posted: Tuesday, Jan 15th, 2013

John Bartlett, publisher of Siuslaw News, will be the honored recipient of the annual Florence First Citizen Award, tonight at the Siuslaw Awards, 6 p.m. at the Florence Events Center.

Bartlett and Erik Tanikawa were the two nominees this year for the prestigious award, which is overseen by a committee of the Florence Area Chamber of Commerce.

Bartlett was nominated by the Florence Rotary Club.

He has lived in Florence for more than 12 years. He moved here to serve as publisher of the Siuslaw News as part of News Media Corporation, which purchased the newspaper in 2000. Bartlett has been an employee of News Media for 15 years.

In Florence he immediately sought opportunities to get to know the community at large. He has served on the boards of the chamber of commerce, Friends of Florence, Peace Harbor Hospital Foundation, and the Rotary Club, for which he was president in 2007-2008. He also worked as chairman of the local Relay For Life for the past two years.
