County Republican party to hold convention PDF Print E-mail

The Nebraska state primaries are over and most political parties are having county conventions. 

The Perkins County Republican Party has scheduled its county convention for Thursday, June 3 at Midwest Electric’s Community Room starting at 7:30 p.m.

Many veterans and others have paid the ultimate price to preserve the right to free speech and voting privileges. The Perkins County Republican Party would like to encourage everyone to participate in developing grass roots policies that represent their beliefs.

At the county convention  Amara Meyer, a young student from the Perkins County High School, will describe her experiences at Nebraska Boys and Girls State.

Later, several Republican candidates who are running for office will speak.

At least two resolutions will be presented to the County Convention for consideration:

do away with Daylight Saving Time and increase the term limits for serving in the Nebraska Legislature from eight consecutive years to 12 years. 

There may be other proposals.

Also on the agenda is an election of officers and delegates to the state convention to be held in Fremont this year.
