CONGRATULATIONS to all those candidates and elected officials who won their races in the Primary. We are pleased that we played an important role in your election by hosting the four candidate forums.
We have taken a small hiatus this summer from our usual busy schedule during an election year, but this Primary Election has just seemed to go on forever. Now the Runoff Election is almost upon us. Early voting is Monday, July 23, 2012 through July 27, 2012 and ELECTION DAY is July 31, 2012.
If you are a candidate, I am sure you are in great anticipation of the outcome on this day. If you do not have an opponent in November, your hard work will have paid off.
We must all remember that we still have objectives that are still ahead of us. We must continue to educate and illustrate to the voters, what a huge difference there is in the two candidates for President.
Because we do not have a Federal PAC, we are limited in what we are able to do as a club in the upcoming election. We will be discussing that subject at our upcoming meeting along with some planning of what we can do as individuals to accomplish this goal.
Ladies, let’s roll up our sleeves and get ready to do what we always do, work for good government.
July 4th in Shannon Park, Kaufman
On July 4th, 2012, the Kaufman County Republican Women hosted a tent in Shannon Park in Kaufman where the City of Kaufman and the Kaufman Chamber of Commerce held their second annual July Fest following the annual parade.
We passed out fans (which were sorely needed), constitutions and of course Birthday Cake,to celebrate the 236th birthday of our Great Nation.
We also asked the local county elected officials as well as others to participate in a program promoted by Hillsdale College, for groups to read the constitution all over the country. Some of the elected officials who participated were Tom Manning, Commissioner Precinct 4, Howard Tygrett, District Judge, 86th District Court, and Mike Chitty, District Judge 422nd District Court.
Other activities included, as rock climbing wall, two water slides, food provided by the American Legion, watermelon provided by the Life Church, pony rides and games.
