COLDSPRING – The San Jacinto County Democratic Party has cancelled its meeting scheduled for Thursday, Sept. 18. “Due to Hurricane Ike the meeting will be cancelled. We must not put politics ahead of people and their needs at this time,” said San Jacinto County Democratic Chairman Richard Countiss. “We will see if candidate for U.S. Senator Rick Noriega’s schedule will allow him to visit us at a later date,” Countiss said. Noriega was originally scheduled to be the guest speaker during Thursday night’s meeting.
