Dear Cobb Republican:
Today we were notified by NorthStar Church that we will NOT be able to hold our convention this Saturday in their facility. Therefore, we are moving the County Convention to Cobb Republican Party Headquarters,
799 Roswell Street NE, Marietta, GA 30060
In accordance with guidance from the Executive Committee of the Georgia Republican Party, I have notified Chairman David Shafer, Secretary Mike Welsh, and Executive Director Stewart Bragg of the situation.
You must still be in line by 10:00 am if you wish to be seated as a delegate.
However, especially with the smaller venue, if you do not need to attend, or if you are in a risk group for COVID-19,
PLEASE STAY HOME
For this reason, except for our Cobb GOP Secretary and Treasurer, I have asked the executive officers NOT to attend.
The President of the United States has asked all Americans to stay away from crowds of 10 or more. We would like to comply with his request, but need your cooperation to do so. The HQ is a smaller venue and we will be less able to spread out.
We want everyone healthy and ready for the Congressional District and especially the State Convention!
In addition, if you are:
- Reluctant to visit headquarters in-person because you are concerned about COVID-19 exposure, or
- Already experiencing cold or flu-like symptoms and don’t wish to expose others, or
- Have no symptoms, but have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 symptoms in the past 14 days
Please, for the safety of other members,
DO NOT ATTEND
Remember that you
required to attend the Cobb GOP Convention to be a part of our proposed slate of delegates and alternates to the district and state conventions.
I also want to thank Chairman Michael Williams and the members of the Nominating Committee who have been working diligently to have the list of delegates and alternates for release before the convention so we can plug in any holes before Saturday. Please watch your email for that notice Thursday night or Friday morning.
