Moving toward caucuses

Tuesday, October 29, 2019

The Dickinson County Republican Central Committee met at the Spirit Lake Library Monday, Oct. 21.

The most important item on the agenda was the caucuses to be held on Monday, Feb. 3, 2020, by Republicans and Democrats in our country. Voters at those caucuses will elect delegates to the county convention, the on to district and state conventions.

This is where it all begins! The grass roots! Iowa first in the nation is the beginning! We are the first voters who meet the candidates. They tell us why they should be elected, we vote that is what good government is all about.

Steve Reeder, candidate for Congress in the 4th District in Iowa, attended the meeting and gave his qualifications to represent us in Washington D.C. State Rep. John Wills also gave a fall update on legislative news.

I urge every eligible voter to go to his or her caucus Feb. 3, 2020. (I'll probably remind you again in January!)
