The Primary is Over . . . Sort Of!
The March 2014 Primary has come and gone. Well, sort of. With nineteen (19) statewide races and seventeen (17) county races, and some of those races having as many as eight (8) candidates running for the same office, it was almost inevitable that some races would not be settled. To settle those remaining races, you will get to participate in the Primary Runoff election in May! Then, finally, in November, we will face off against the Democrats for the actual offices.
Don’t Forget the County Convention!
Many people attended the Republican precinct conventions, each one held at the location of the polling place for the precinct. We will have the Smith County Republican Party County Convention on Saturday, March 22, 2014. If you were voted to be a delegate or an alternate to the county convention at your precinct convention, you are eligible to participate in the county convention and select who will represent our county at the State convention, as well as what resolutions we will pass on to the State convention to craft into the newest platform for the party! Mark your calendar!
If you want to become involved politically, now is definitely the time! You can work as little or as much as you’d like! Perhaps you’d like to work in your own neighborhood, then let us know and we’ll connect you with your precinct chairman or if you don’t have one, then maybe even become one! If interested in volunteering, please contact our County Chairman, Tim McCormick by e-mail at email@example.com to let us know! Also, don’t forget to sign up for our monthly newsletter on the right. If you want to serve in a full-time position, please call party headquarters at (903) 593-0100 or send us an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our Executive Committee meets the 3rd Thursday of the month at 7:00 p.m. at our headquarters on S. Broadway, across from Arby’s in the shopping center with Jessica’s Spa and Mary’s Alterations. Feel free to drop by and meet us there! Also, look at our club page and find the Republican club in Smith County that best fits your interests. Thanks for visiting us!
