Gonzales County Democrats to host forum


Dear editor,

The Gonzales County Democrats are hosting a candidate forum on Tuesday, Feb. 11 at GG’s Steakhouse in Gonzales at 6 p.m. This is a non-partisan event and no political party or platforms will be discussed. We are wanting to meet all of our county candidates, regardless of party affiliation. We welcome all the citizens of Gonzales to attend.

However, we were contacted by a concerned citizen stating that a letter had been sent out to the candidates by the Gonzales County Republican Chair, telling them to attend the forum due to the Gonzales County Democrats trying to taint the primary election and confuse people. This is false information.

We are hosting this forum for all citizens, party platforms will not be discussed, but rather, questions revolving around the needs of Gonzales County and its citizens. We are in no way promoting division in our county, we want to bring everyone together.

We want to work together since we all are in the same county. We encourage all candidates to attend our forum so all citizens can ask questions and/or address concerns.

Thank you in advance for your support and cooperation.

Yolanda Messman

Gonzales County Democrats Chair
