REFUGIO – Refugio County Democratic Chair Bernice Macias announced this week that the 2012 Refugio County Democratic convention will be held on Saturday, April 21, at the Refugio County Chamber of Commerce starting at 10 a.m.

The Refugio County Democratic Convention is being held as part of the statewide and national Democratic process.

The primary purpose of this convention is to choose/appoint delegates and alternates for the Democratic Party of Texas State Convention which will be held on June 7-9, 2012 at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston.

With so many calendar date changes due to the redistricting changes that have taken place, the precinct conventions for the Refugio County Democratic Party will not take place on May 29.

Precinct chairs can file or still be appointed and it will be up to the committees to see if this process shall take place. All business for the Democratic Party of Refugio shall take place on April 21.

All attendees shall be seated according to their precincts and have an opportunity to bring forth any resolutions or concerns to the convention. This will also give any registered voter who signs an oath of affiliation to the democratic party an opportunity to seek position as a delegate at the Democratic State Convention.

“Even though we were off to a slow start with the redistricting changes, we will be looking forward to getting to business as we come together to discuss issues and propositions and concerns that can be taken to the State Convention,” Macias said. “It is an honor to have our county represented at the state level and I invite all the interested persons to join us at the Refugio County Chamber of Commerce.

“I encourage new registered voters, and all precincts to attend this event.”

Per recommendations of the Texas Democratic Party any concerned persons should bring any resolutions to the meeting on April 21, to discuss, or bring them forward to Bernice Macias by Friday April 20 at 6 p.m. for presentation to the convention. Send to Bernice Macias, P.O.Box 34, Bayside TX 78340
