Report on the Blanco County Democratic Convention
The county convention was held on Saturday, March 24 at the Gem of the Hills in Blanco with 35 people in attendance. The purpose of the county convention is to elect delegates to the state convention and to consider and vote on resolutions.
The number of delegates is determined by the number of Democratic voters from each precinct in the most recent gubernatorial election. Our allocation of delegates was as follows: one from Precinct 201; one from Precinct 401; two from Precincts 102, 302, 303 and 304; plus the current and past county chairmen. Delegates to the state convention were elected: Ann Matlock for Precinct 201; Suzanne Perkins for Precinct 401; and Mike Barnes and Matt Lewis for the combined four smaller precincts.
The state convention takes place June 21-23 at the Fort Worth Convention Center.
The following resolutions were considered and passed:
We recently lost a loved and cherished friend, Erin Watson.
She was a co-founder of the Blanco County Activist group The Liberal Ladies and a loyal Democrat. She will be greatly missed.
If you would like to make a donation in her honor, the Blanco County Democratic Party will work with her family to use these funds in a manner that honors her life and her work.
