Today was the date for convening a Republican Party Convention in Oconee County (many other counties below the 75,000 population count did the same). It was held at the VFW Community Center at which about 34 citizens registered.
Precinct meetings were held at each Precinct (a table with voters from their precinct) electing a Chair and a Secretary and delegates (34) to the County Convention. These delegates then convened (at the same location) for the County Covnention to elect delegates (17 delegates and 17 alternates) to the District Convention which will be held in Greene County (Greensboro Theater) on April 14, 2012.
Public officials present were State Representative Chuck Williams, BOC Chairman Melvin Davis, Commissioner Jim Luke and School Bd Member Kim Argo. Rep Williams gave update of the activity under the Gold Dome for last week noting that Friday was Cross-over day. Bills were left behind that didn’t make it pass C-O day. Great turn-out compared to last election cycle.
