LIBERTY, TEXAS - As a part of our ongoing involvement in the community and in order to recognize those who also give so much to our community, The Liberty County Republican Party donated a 48 inch HDTV as a door prize to the First Responders of Liberty County. At the end of their January meeting, the winner of the 48" HDTV was The Hardin Fire Department. We appreciate our first responders for assisting our community with their talents, energy, and time. Thanks again for all you do!
By now everyone is aware of the re-election of John Boehner as Speaker of the House. To say the least, the vote by a few of our local Texas congressional delegation was disappointing. Close to home in Liberty County, our former Congressman (now 2nd District Congressman) Ted Poe cast a vote in favor of John Boehner while our newly elected Congressman Brian Babin (of the 36th District) voted “present”.
This article was not written to defend or criticize either Congressman. Rather, this article was written to present information to Liberty County Republicans from the public explanations of each Congressman’s vote.
Make no mistake, the Liberty County Republican Party is the most actively involved political organization in Liberty County. If ever there was any question, then the record attendance at this month's January 6th Quarterly Meeting was the answer. Republicans, elected Republican officials, Precinct Chairs, and Executive Committee members from all across Liberty County packed the Liberty Opry dining room to attend to the business of the party.
Special guest speaker was Liberty County's new County Judge Jay Knight. Knight informed the audience of his plans for Liberty County and emphasized his dislike for wasteful spending. To that end he described how he was going to lead efforts to establish long range planning for Liberty County needs (not wants) and begin the County budgeting process in January instead of July.
In new business, the Liberty County Republican Party Executive Committee voted to donate a wide screen television to the Liberty County Fireman's Association to be used at their January meeting later this month where first responders from all across Liberty County will gather. The Liberty County Republican Party wants our first responders to know we appreciate their often unappreciated efforts in Liberty County.
Our next meeting will be on February 3rd at 6:00pm at Novrosky's in Liberty. This will be an Executive Committee Precinct Chair Workshop and the public is invited to attend. See our calendar entry for more details.
