Young County Republicans Meeting

The Young County Republicans held a meeting on Thursday, May 28. The main purpose of this meeting was to elect delegates for the state convention, which will be held July 16-18 in Houston at the Convention Center.

11 people were elected as delegates for the convention next month, with several alternates also being discussed. Just in case certain people will not be able to attend, backup plans and alternates are in place. A motion was carried to accept these elected delegates and alternates officially. They will be electing officers for the meeting, electing people to serve on committees out of our districts and meetings will begin that Monday prior to the convention.

Electors will be elected for the Electoral College at the convention, as well as electing delegates for the national convention which will now take place Aug. 24-27. “What I like about the convention is that it shows at that level of participation, you really get to have your vote in there and I think that if as many of us can go as possible, we will really enjoy it, “ said the chairman of the meeting.

With COVID-19 on the decline in the number of cases and deaths, the convention is still expected to take place on the scheduled dates.
