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
Our Monthly Meetings are held in the small room of the Gym at Cornerstone Church 1407 Ellis Avenue, Lufkin, TX. HOWEVER, due to the Covid19 distancing requirements. there will be NO June 9, 2020, nor July 14, 2020 meeting. (July 14, 2020 is Primary Runoff Election Day).
Possibly by August, we will be set free of the 6’ rule.
NOTICE: JUNE 11th FORUM CANCELLED
“As you are all aware, Col. West was involved in a motorcycle accident a couple of weeks ago. We had been in communication with his campaign and all was on go for him to be here for our forum. Unfortunately, he had to undergo shoulder surgery yesterday evening. This morning the doctor has informed him that he cannot travel until after his follow up visit on Friday when he hopes to be released.
So, it is with deep regret that I must inform you that I am cancelling the forum scheduled for this Thursday, June 11th. I appreciate all of you and the interest you have shown in this very important election for both our Party and our State. If you are a delegate or an alternate to the State Convention, I strongly encourage each of you to research the two candidates. There are other forums that have been videotaped and posted on the web for you to view.
Thank you for your support and understanding.
J. Bradley Reynolds, Chairman
Nacogdoches Co. Republican Party
The 2020 Texas State Republican Convention will be held July 16th – 18th in Houston at the George R. Brown Convention Center.
