Here is the TEXAS STATE REPUBLICAN PARTY CONVENTION DELEGATE APPLICATION to apply to Bexar County’s SD 25 Nominations Committee to be an at-large delegate to the state convention. If you did not attend your Precinct Convention or get nominated there to the SD Convention, you may apply to be nominated to attend the State Convention as an At-Large Delegate by submitting This Form to the Bexar SD 25 Nominations Committee. We strongly recommend you fill it out, scan and send it in before the day of the Senate District Convention. If you cannot do that, then print and fill it out in advance to bring with you.
If you have a Resolution you would like to submit which you did not already submit at your precinct convention, your best option is to email it to the Resolutions Committee Chairman days before the convention.
While emailing it to the Resolutions Committee is better, if you still intend to submit your Resolution in hard copy in person from the floor of the SD Convention, if you did not submit it at your Precinct Convention, know that you must have three separate copies of it in writing to turn in. It is highly advisable to have copies of such Resolutions ready before arriving at convention, typed and printed, rather than hand writing them at the convention.
Convention Committee Chairmen:
Arrangements – Krissy Coons
Credentials – Judge O. Rene Diaz
Permanent Organization – Lani Popp
Nominations – Laura Koerner
Rules – Curt Nelson
Resolutions – Grant Moody
The convention committees have been meeting since March 6th and will do so through the convention to complete the business of the convention, which includes electing delegates from our district to the State Convention and passing Resolutions to send on to the State Convention for consideration to be added to our State Party Platform.
Per Republican Party of Texas Rule 14, these meetings are "open to any delegate or alternate to that convention, any State or County Republican Party Officer, any elected Republican Public Officeholder, or any Republican Candidate" and "These same people shall have the right to appear before any convention committee or subcommittee and make recommendations for the committee’s consideration or testify concerning any item under purview of the committee. The committee may adopt reasonable rules including time limits for such presentations and may establish a reasonable limit of time for these presentations".
