The Fannin County Republican Party will not hold a regular monthly meeting in December. The next regular monthly meeting will be at 7 p.m. Monday, January 19th at the Senior Center in Blue Ridge. A barbecue dinner will be served prior to the meeting at 6 p.m.
At this meeting, a secretary will be elected to fill the unexpired term of Elaine Owen who resigned November 17th.
Consistent with the FCRP Bylaws, at the November 17th meeting, Chairman Johnny Scearce appointed Precinct Captain Howard Lawson to fill the vacancy until an election can be held.
Local media will be asked to publish an announcement about the election.
Our Bylaws state: In the event a vacancy is created in the office of any other position (other than Chairman) on the Executive Committee, the Chair shall have the authority to appoint someone to fill that vacancy until a regular election is held for filling such a vacancy at the next FCRP regular or special called meeting. The intention to fill such a vacancy shall be published at least ten (10) days prior to the meeting.
Nominations from the floor will be taken and a ballot election will be held January 19th.
Everyone is invited to attend this meeting.
