The monthly meeting of the Union County GOP was held on Saturday, January 21. Mr. Carl Blackburn, the 9th District Vice Chairman, explained the convention process and the importance of our County, District and State level Conventions. He encouraged people to tell their neighbors and friends to attend our Union County Convention that will be held at Coosa Methodist Church on March 11. He cautioned people to get there early. You must be in line by 9:00 a.m. to participate in the voting and election of new officers. He hoped people would bring their voter registration card with them to save time. He reminded the group that they can simply go to the “My Voter Page” on the Secretary of State website to find their voter card and precinct. At 10:00 a.m. the County Convention begins. They will elect officers, delegates and alternates to go to the District and onto the State Conventions. The District Convention will be held on April 15. The District and State Conventions are terrific fun, with a banquet the night before, awards, and top level speakers. The State Convention will be held on June 9 and 10 in Columbus, Georgia. All resolutions and rule changes work themselves up through the conventions and are presented to the State Convention. Andrew Turnage also spoke briefly about the upcoming conventions.
The Republican Party is a grass roots party, unlike the Democrat Party who have “Super Delegates”; a single person who makes decisions for hundreds of thousands of people. We have a voice in Union County to vote on who goes on to the District, State and ultimately to the National Convention. We vote on rule changes, and resolutions and elect our officers. This is how we govern ourselves. If you don’t like how things are going, you can change it right at the grass roots level at the Union County Convention. Plan to attend this important event. As General Michael Flynn says, “Local actions have a national impact”.
Coosa Methodist Church, 767 Mulkey Gap Road, Blairsville, GA. Try to be there early at 8:00 a.m.
