Fellow Angelina County Republican Patriots:
Overwhelming amounts of information are coming out with regards to COVID-19 (Coronavirus). RPT Chairman James Dickey had a conference call with statewide County Chairs and stakeholders. Based on the latest CDC recommendations and President Trump requesting all gatherings be limited to no more than 10 persons, we will be moving our County Convention date to sometime in the future. As County Chair, I am required to stand at the Cornerstone Gym Door (1407 Ellis Avenue) to open the convention at its appointed time (March 21, 2020 at 9:00 AM) and immediately adjourn the meeting due to an extreme emergency. This will be a notice that the meeting will be reconvened at a later time. Based on the current request and guidelines to delay these size gatherings for a minimum of eight weeks from March 16, our County Convention will NOT reconvene before May 16, 2020.
As soon as we have a location and time, notification will be available on our website, email blast will be sent to all who have provided an email and our Facebook page.
STATE CONVENTION UPDATE: A FINAL decision will be made APRIL 4, 2020 by our SREC (State Republican Executive Committee) to allow us to conduct our STATE CONVENTION JULY 13 – JULY 16 DATE at the George R. Brown Convention Center, Houston, Texas. We will do our best to keep you informed. Please continue to check our website www.angelinagop.org and emails for updates.
Thank you for your continued support. We are in challenging times, but together we will overcome.
Donald Baum, County Chair
