|Greetings Fellow Republicans,|
|As most of you probably know, Commissioner Mickey Toler recently resigned. A caucus of Precinct Committeemen was held on March 29th to fill the vacancy in the office. We had one candidate apply for the position. Jim Seiler was unanimously elected. We thank Mickey for his service to our County and the Republican Party. Many thanks to Jim Seiler for stepping up and accepting this responsibility. A second caucus is scheduled for April 12th at 10:00 am to fill Seiler?s vacated at-large council seat.
Last week I attended a meeting of the Eighth District Republican Committee held in Washington with Eighth District Chairman Rick Martin. Two of the three candidates for State Treasurer, Don Bates Jr. and Wayne Seybold, spoke at the meeting.
Republican Headquarters will be open daily (hours by chance) from now through primary election day. Stop in for some popcorn or call 812-686-1969 with any questions between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m.
