New and exciting times are happening for the Taylor County Republican party. Our Chairman Winston Ohlhausen has served us well for many years and is now in a position to need to take care of his family and farm. We are so proud to have had his love for our Country and county and all that he did for us. He will still be with us just not in the chairman position anymore. Thank you Winston for your service. May God bless you!!
Our newly elected Chairman Chris Carnohan has taken the reigns and we are also grateful to have his excitement for the work ahead as he sees the challenges before Republicans. We will be sharing upcoming events as we get them planned for the near future.
First things first, we have set a date of April 20th for a meeting for the positions that need to be filled for county precinct chairs. If you are interested in learning about what being a precinct chair looks like and the duties required please join us on April 20th, 21 at 6:30 pm at the Mall of Abilene South Branch Library, 4310 Buffalo Gap Rd. We will have you fill out the application required and start the election process.
We have room for everyone that wants to help so even if you would love to volunteer but not be a precinct chair please come and be apart. We will be setting up committee's and have many events and ways you can be of service. Please let us know how we can help you find your way of serving. See you in 2 weeks!!
