First Day of Filing for the 2012 Primary!!

Hello Everyone,

I hope everyone had a Wonderful Thanksgiving!!

Tomorrow is the beginning of the 2012 election with the opening day for filing for the 2012 Primary Election. I will be opening the doors of the Party Headquarters at 8:00 to start accepting applications and will be there until about 9:45 when I will take a short break to attend the County Commissioners meeting at the Courthouse. Depending on the length of the meeting I will take a short lunch and be back to man the office until 5:00. If anyone is unable to make it to the headquarters tomorrow then please feel free to give me a call at 254-482-0354 and I will be glad to arrange a meeting for applying for a place on the primary ballot.

I am very excited about this year’s election and look forward to meeting with all the candidates. For them this is a big step as running for office is now small task. The folks are willing to give up their own time and sacrifice of themselves to serve us. This is why we should all do what we can to show our support and help them as they work to continue to bring conservative change to Milam County; a change that we saw take root in the 2010 election.

The media has asked that we have a few people on hand for some pictures around 9:30 so please feel free to come by around 9:30 and be a part of the fun. For the candidates I hope you take the media up on this offer of free publicity. You can apply whenever you like but please come by around 9:30 for some pictures with the newspapers. I will be taking photos of the candidates for our website so to those folks I would say look good for the camera.

This is an important election; with redistricting taken over by the courts to benefit the Democrats and the inaction of elected officials in federal offices we all need to all work together to help insure that we elect true conservatives who will work with us to create a better future for our children and grandchildren. Thanks to everyone for your help and I look forward to working with everyone in the years to come.

See You Soon,

Bill Whitmire
Republican Party of Milam County
