On Saturday, March 17 the Durham County Republican Party held its annual convention.
The convention began with precinct meetings.
After the precinct business, candidates for office were each given 3 minutes to explain why we should choose them. We also had numerous opportunities to chat with candidates before and after the convention.
The candidates were followed by the debate over a resolution
supporting Amendment 1 to the North Carolina Constitution.
The debate was spirited but very friendly. Durham County Republicans
rose to voice their support or opposition to this measure.
The resolution passed on a voice vote. The convention also passed two other resolutions, one supporting a water line extension in Rougemont, the other opposing the Downtown Durham Business Improvement District.
The text of all three resolutions can be found below:
