Approximately sixty Liberty County Republicans attended our precincts and county convention in March! Every two years, on the heels of each primary election, each county holds precinct conventions and county/senate district conventions. Beginning with precinct conventions, these gatherings - set by state law - are the very first and basic building block of political activity in our party process.
What happens at these conventions? Typically the most important aspects of convention are the selection of delegates to the state Republican convention the following summer and the resolutions passed by each county (or senate district). Counties that are split between senate districts have senate district conventions (think Harris County), while counties that fall wholly within one senate district (think Liberty County within Senate District 3) meet with just their own counties at county convention.
Resolutions passed at this level are statements of policy preferences and show the direction the local party believes the Republican party as a whole - and our Republican lawmakers -ought to take in putting together policies and passing laws.
The following propositions will appear on the 2022 March Republican Primary ballot. Ballot propositions are passed by the State Republican Executive Committee (SREC). Each Senate District has a committeeman and committeewoman representing the senate district area at each SREC meeting. Senate District 3/Liberty County's SREC reps are currently David Covey and Emily Cook.
In light of the federal government’s refusal to defend the southern border, Texas should immediately deploy the National Guard, Texas Military Forces, and necessary state law enforcement to seal the border, enforce immigration laws, and deport illegal aliens.
Texas should eliminate all property taxes within ten (10) years without implementing a state income tax.
Texans should not lose their jobs, nor should students be penalized, for declining a COVID-19 vaccine.
Texas schools should teach students basic knowledge and American exceptionalism and reject Critical Race Theory and other curricula that promote Marxist doctrine and encourage division based on creed, race, or economic status.
Texas should enact a State Constitutional Amendment to defend the sanctity of innocent human life, created in the image of God, from fertilization until natural death.
The Republican-controlled Texas Legislature should end the practice of awarding committee chairmanships to Democrats.
Texas should protect the integrity of our elections by verifying that registered voters are American citizens, restoring felony penalties and enacting civil penalties for vote fraud, and fighting any federal takeover of state elections.
Texas should ban chemical castration, puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, and genital mutilation surgery on all minor children for sex transition purposes.
Texas parents and guardians should have the right to select schools, whether public or private, for their children, and the funding should follow the student.
Texans affirm that our freedoms come from God and that the government should have no control over the conscience of individuals.

The Liberty County Republican Party is pleased to announce that Jeff Leblanc, Precinct Chairman of Precinct 29 (Old River Winfree area) was voted as our Senate District’s representative to the Permanent Platform Committee. LeBlanc’s term will span from 2018 until the summer of 2020, and his vote will represent the nineteen counties that make up Senate District 3. It is important to note that not just Liberty County voted for Jeff, but that he also earned the confidence of the other eighteen counties!
LeBlanc was voted into the position after serving on the Temporary Platform Committee for this past June. As a Temporary Committeeman, Leblanc personally reviewed hundreds of resolutions passed across the state in counties and senate districts in preparation for the 2018 Republican Party of Texas State Convention. The role of the Platform Committee is to recommend the substantive text of the party platform to the roughly 9,000 delegates from across Texas who vote on the final product. The Republican Party of Texas platform houses both principles and specific legislation that Republicans expect their Republican State Representatives and State Senators to enact into law the following legislative session.
Liberty County has a rich heritage of our local citizens impacting the direction of our great state, and we are ecstatic Jeff is continuing to influence state policy. Congratulations!
P.S. Jeff is also the co-host of local radio show, The Liberty Line on local station Liberty Radio Texas. https://www.facebook.com/TheLibertyLine/
During June’s state convention in San Antonio, the race of chairman for our state party proved to be very spirited and interesting, to say the least. Elected in a special election by the State Republican Executive Committee in 2017, James Dickey was officially running for re-election for the first time in front of the state delegation.
Our Liberty County delegation voted unanimously for Chairman Dickey. Many of our members have worked closely with Chairman Dickey during the last legislative session, including Precinct Chairs Jeff Leblanc and Wesley Thomas, and Emily Cook. We all look forward to Chairman Dickey’s first full tenure as GOP chair!
Even our smallest delegate, Andrew Cook, was pumped about Chairman Dickey’s victory!
