On Tuesday October 7th, Liberty County Republicans met at the Liberty Opry for their quarterly meeting. Important business was conducted as the November 4th election day draws closer. Liberty County Republicans will be out and about encouraging all voters to vote a straight Republican ticket on this year's ballot. To that end, they will be hosting booths at the upcoming Trinity Valley Exposition and Dayton Trade Days where a brand new pistol will be raffled off as a fundraiser for the party (more information to come). In other business, the Liberty County GOP revised and approved their by-laws.
Speaking to a packed room of Precinct Chairs, Canidates, and Elected Officials, State Representative of District 18, John Otto advocated for the passage of State Proposition 1 and discussed the current border crisis.
The meeting closed with a call for volunteers. Chairman Ken Coleman asked that anyone who is interested in getting involved with the Liberty County GOP to please contact him. There are many opportunities to get involved be it with the party's fundraising efforts or becoming a Precinct Chair.
As the November 4th Election Day and October 20th-31st Early Voting period draws closer, I would like to encourage all citizens to vote Republican. In fact, the most convenient way of voting Republican is by voting a straight ticket. On the ballot, there will be a box you can select to vote for all Republican candidates.
As candidates begin to campaign and as groups begin to advocate for positions on issues, I would like to mention the only two official State Republican Party auxiliary groups in Liberty County that share and promote the same conservative values and Texas Republican Party Platform as the Liberty County Republican Party. Both groups are actively seeking new members for anyone who is wishing to become more involved in Liberty County politics:
- Southeast Texas Young Republicans
- Liberty County Republican Women
Of course, anyone who is interested in becoming involved in the Liberty County Republican Party is encouraged to do so. We have openings for Precinct Chairs for those who qualify and are
interested. I would like to invite you to visit our website at http://www.libertycountygop.org/. There you will find information about the Liberty County Republican Party, our latest news, our leadership, our Platform, our candidates, early voting times and places, and voting precinct information. For more information about the State of Texas Republican Party, please visit their website at http://www.txgop.com/.
As voters, it is important we stay informed. Please feel free to forward this message to your friends and family.
Ken Coleman, Chairman
Republican Party of Liberty County
Republicans from all over Southeast Texas packed the Holiday Inn conference center in Beaumont, Texas on Saturday, September 27th as the State Executive Committee conducted precinct chair training. Important topics were covered such as the organizational structure of the TX GOP, utilizing social media, and getting out the vote. Afterwards, Congresional candiate Dr. Brian Babin hosted an ice cream social. Everyone who attended found the event to be very well organized and full of great information.
