Republican Party holds organizational meeting in county

By Press Reports

The Choctaw County Republican Party held an organizational meeting on May 29, 2012 at the Choctaw County Courthouse.

Representative Joey Hood, Senator Gary Jackson and Executive Chairman Shannon Crow addressed the people in attendance. Representative Joey Hood and Senator Gary Jackson are the only elected Republican officials from Choctaw County.

Chairman Crow stated “The Choctaw County Republican Party believes that people should join and support the political party that best represents their beliefs and interests. The Democratic Party has taken a sharp turn to the left on issues of great importance to the citizens in Choctaw County. The recent endorsement of same sex marriage is just one of many issues where the views of citizens in Choctaw County differ from that of the Democratic Party.”

The Choctaw County Republican Party states that if you believe in traditional marriage, less government and taxes and the conservative values that America was founded on, then join us at our next meeting on June 12, 2012 at 6 p.m. in the Choctaw County Courthouse.

The Choctaw County Republican Party will also have a booth set up at JuneFest and encourages everyone to stop by.
