There’s clarification now from the Georgia Republican Party on the operation of the Precinct Mass Meetings:
In order to avoid any confusion regarding Precinct Mass Meetings, we want to make it clear that each precinct is free to elect, or not elect, delegates and alternates to their County Convention. However, we encourage them to elect as many likely participants to be delegates or alternates as possible.
Once the Precinct Meeting adjourns the list cannot be altered, any conflicts should be resolved by the Credentials Committee at the County Convention.
Please note, recent media reports regarding a delegate not being elected to their county convention did not reflect all of the details surrounding the situation where a delegate’s name was struck from the delegate list.
While we will work with our counties to resolve issues that arise, remember that following the rules and practicing fairness and respect for others is the best path to a successful mass meeting and county convention.
Hopefully this will clear up the question from observers regarding the statement of Chairman Everhart via Douglas County Chairman Blood from the article in the Douglas County Sentinel from yesterday.
