Seamless transition to the 2016-18 term!

Posted on Jun 28, 2016 in Blog with comments
The new term of Travis GOP precinct chairmen began this evening. See the new bylaws here.

"Our precinct chairs proved this evening that they are bigger than the unfavorable image we were given after this year's Primary," said Andy Hogue, Communications Director of the Travis GOP. "Mr. Morrow, despite his unusual theories about people in high places, was respectful to our grassroots leaders and moderated his portion of tonight's meeting well. We're grateful for a smooth transition and look forward to an energetic and unified general election season going into November."

AUSTIN, Texas -- The Travis County Republican Party Executive Committee approved a resolution Tuesday night denying any connection to the notorious and offensive statements of its Chairman-elect.
