Republican Party’s leadership changing
Trinity Standard -
TRINITY -- With the local Republican Party chairman and vice chairman, Sid and Betty Wilson, announcing plans to move out of Trinity County, the local organization began making plans for new leadership. During their June 4 meeting in Groveton, the Trinity County Republican Party of Texas (TCRPT) executive committee accepted the resignation of Betty Wilson as vice chair and named Carl Dyer of the Lakewood subdivision as her replacement. Based on a recommendation of Pct. 2 County Commissioner Rich Chamberlain, who is the only Republican officeholder at this time, Dyer was asked to fill the vice chair post and begin work with Sid Wilson so that a smooth transition in leadership could occur. The committee agreed and voted unanimously to appoint Dyer. Dyer and his wife of 32 years, Freda, have lived in the Trinity area for the past 11 years and has been active in civic and political events. “I look forward to working for Trinity County through the TCRPT and keeping the party moving forward by getting our conservative message out among the residents of the county,” Dyer said. “The next two years are an important time for Trinity County, the State of Texas and the nation. We have a monumental task ahead of us and I’m ready to get to work,” he added. In a continuing effort to raise community awareness of the Republican Party platform, the TCRPT Executive Committee is assisting with the creation of a Trinity County Republican Women’s (TCRW) organization. A representative from an established Republican women’s group in the region will present a program on how the TCRW would function, its importance and its role in the 2012 election season. The program will be presented at the TCRPT Executive Committee meeting on Saturday, July 9 in Groveton. A light lunch will be served and the public is invited to attend. Addition details regarding the time and location of the meeting will be announced soon. Those wishing to participate in the TCRPT should contact Dyer at (936) 594-1742 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
