February 2020 Newsletter
Fellow Republicans, we are fully into Primary election season now! On any given Saturday you can find a handful of the candidates at various events. The party will be hosting a forum for the state office candidates on February 6th at our general meeting and we invite everyone to come out to meet the candidates and listen to what they have to say.
As a reminder, absentee ballots are going out now, one-stop early voting starts February 13th, and primary election day is March 3rd. By NCGOP policies, the party cannot endorse a candidate in the primary election. But, if you wish to help a particular candidate, reach out to them and tell them you will volunteer. They will welcome any and all help.
A significant save the date item, the County Convention. We have secured March 14th at the Kannapolis City Hall for our precinct meetings and County Convention. Please plan to attend! If you wish to be a delegate at the national convention, you must attend the County Convention. As a reminder you must be a registered Republican on January 31st 2020, if you wish to be eligible as a delegate to the County Convention.
Additionally, we would like to express our gratitude to the County Commissioners on their passing of the Second Amendment resolution on Jan 21 at their regular scheduled meeting. Their unwavering support of our Constitutional right was reaffirmed with the passing of a resolution similar to other counties surrounding the Charlotte region. The text of the resolution was published by the party on our Facebook page. If you do not have Facebook, you can click here and it will take you directly to the resolution.
