The Liberty County Republican Party met for their quarterly meeting in Stephen Hebert's JP1 courtroom Tuesday evening, July 1, 2014.
Republican Party Chairman Ken Coleman thanked everyone who ran for office in the recent elections.
According to the Treasurer's Report, the regular fund has $8595. The primary account was over $15,000 before run-off election expenses. Ken Coleman plans to spend a considerable amount back to the state, and commented, "Holding a join election with the Democrats helps keep the costs down."
U. S. Congressional District 36 Republican Candidate Dr. Brian Babin and State Senator Robert Nichols, District 3, were present to talk about current issues of their constituents.
State Republican Executive Committee (SREC) Woman Representative Judy Pareda and SREC Man Representative Jim Wiggins gave a brief report from attending the Republican Convention, both saying claimed divisiveness within the Republican Party was not a valid issue.
Coleman presented Treasurer Sherial Lawson and Secretary Lee Haidusek Chambers each a certificate in appreciation for their work.
Leading into his perspective on the refugee crisis on the Texas border, mainly from illegal minors crossing in extremely large numbers, Dr. Babin reported about being in Washington recently. He told the crowd, "It's a very sobering thought. It's a mess. To say that it's broken is an understatement. I have faith in America and the American people, but we have a problem with everything from the budget to corrupt bureaucracy."
