On Monday evening, May 2nd, at 6:30 the Centre College Student Republicans, Boyle County Farm Bureau and the Boyle Cattleman’s association, in cooperation with the Boyle County Republican Party, sponsored a forum featuring all four candidates for the 15th Senate District.
The 2016 Kentucky Republican State Convention was held Saturday, April 23rd in Lexington. Attending as delegates from Boyle County were Mike Harmon, Bernie Hunstad, Stephen Knight, Tom Tye, and George Coomer. Although several items were on the agenda, the most important was the selection of delegates to the 2016 Republican National Convention this summer in Cleveland, Ohio. Of the 2,472 total Republican delegates at the GOP National Convention, 46 will represent the state of Kentucky. On the list of delegates, there are four individuals either from Boyle County or with Boyle County roots: State Auditor Mike Harmon, Tom Tye, Laura La Rue (Crawford) from Hardin County, and Carol Rogers (Goggin) from Fayette County.
An album of all photos taken at the convention by Boyle County Delegate Stephen Knight can be found on the Boyle County Republican Party Facebook page.
Kentucky State Representative Kim King opens the Convention with prayer.
On Monday, May 2nd, there will be a Republican Town Hall at Centre College’s Vahlkamp Theatre from 6:30-8:00 p.m. The forum will include all four candidates for the 15th Senate District race: Rick Girdler, Don Moss, Michael Keck and Joshua Nichols.
We hope to see you there!
And remember… The election for the 15th Senate District will take place on Primary Day – May 17th, 2016.
This vitally important race will determine who represents Boyle, Lincoln and Pulaski Counties for the term beginning January, 2017. No Democrat has registered to run in the November General Election.
The Boyle County Republican Party will hold a County Mass Meeting on Thursday, March 10th, at 6:30 pm at Inter-County RECC on 1009 Hustonville Road for the purpose of electing 5 delegates and 5 alternates to attend the Second Congressional District (April 16th in Bowling Green) and State Conventions (April 23rd in Lexington).
The purpose of the District and State Convention is to elect Delegates and Alternate Delegates to the National Convention. (Please note that the state rules were changed to elect Party Officers in 2017.)
