Let’s talk: Possible lockdown, GOP Convention, and Upshur events


It was great to see everyone, last Monday, for our July public meeting. I wish to personally thank you all for contacting your Representatives and Governor Abbott regarding the Governor’s response to COVID-19.

After Governor Abbott’s repeated calls, earlier this month, to wear masks or a lockdown is imminent, yesterday, Governor Abbott advised that there “[I]s no shutdown coming.” 

Also, here is the Who Represents Me site that was referenced for those that do not have it bookmarked.

Congratulations to the following for winning the July 14 Runoff Election: Michael Ashley, Upshur County Commissioner, Precinct 3 and David Thompson, Upshur County Constable, Precinct 4.  (Swearing in is January 1, 2021.)

Many have asked for the new GOP Convention schedule.

I hope we once again have reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: As government expands, liberty contracts. ~ Ronald Reagan
