Democrats to elect officers, hold candidate talks Nov. 20


An election of club officers for 2020 will be among the key items on the agenda for the next monthly meeting of the Gillespie County Democratic Association on Wednesday, Nov. 20.

Set for 6:30 p.m., the meeting will take place in the City Council Chambers at the Gillespie County Law Enforcement Center, 1601 East Main Street.

As part of the election, association members will be selecting individuals to fill the offices of president, vice president, secretary, treasurer and executive committee (three positions), with terms to start in January.

In addition to taking up officer elections and other business meeting items, organization President Charlotte Freeborn has announced that she plans to lead a discussion of the top four current Democratic Party presidential candidates for the 2020 general election — Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders and Pete Buttigieg.

In addition, she also plans to have a 10-minute “lightning round” opportunity for comments on the other 13 candidates vying for Democratic voter support in that primary race.

Freeborn is also reminding club members to bring nonperishable goods for the association’s monthly donation to the Fredericksburg Food Pantry.
