Aloha Honolulu County Republicans,
Pursuant to Rule 601 of our county rules, our chairman has called for all duly registered members of the Honolulu County Republican Party to convene in convention at Moanalua Middle School 1289 Mahiole St, Honolulu, HI 96819, Saturday March 28, 2020 beginning at 9:00AM.
2020 BUSINESS OF THE CONVENTIONS
The business of this year’s conventions are:
1. Approve update of county rules (County rules haven’t been updated since 2013)
2. Presentation of 2020 Candidates for elected offices on Oahu and State-wide.
1. Election of National Committeeman and National Committeewoman
2. Platform updates and resolutions.
Delegates are Party Members elected at our annual Precinct Election Meetings to represent the Precinct electing them at the County and State convention. Alternate delegates are elected to serve in the event that a delegate cannot or does not serve. These convention goers play an enormous role in deciding the direction, the policies, and the determination of our party to earn a place as Hawaii’s future governing majority.
In order to be a delegate or alternate to a County or State convention, the person must be a registered member of the Hawaii Republican Party and a registered Hawaii voter in the represented precinct. NOTE: If you were unable to attend your annual precinct election meeting in February and would like to be considered as a delegate for your precinct so you can participate at the convention, please sign up here Delegate Request
WHAT TO EXPECT:
Conventions can be very short or last all day, depending on what business needs to be accomplished.
After the Call to Order and opening ceremonies, the Convention will typically proceed with the following business, in this order, or in the order established by the approved agenda, if different:
- Organization and Election of Convention Officers
- Reports and Addresses
- Initial Credentials Committee Report
- Adoption of Convention Rules
- Approval of Final Agenda
- Convention Business (depending on year of convention)
- Election of Party Leadership
- Platform Changes Approval
- Rule Changes Approval
- Resolutions Approval
- Presentation of Candidate
After over 60 years of control of government, Democrats are taking our state and our county in the wrong direction. Your participation is the key ingredient to reversing our political fortunes at the State Capitol, Honolulu Hale, and in Congress. The issues are all on our side. Your willingness to help play a vital role in educating, persuading and organizing voters in your neighborhood is what will make winning more seats in 2020 possible. Frankly, the thought of Republicans becoming motivated to take political action is what keeps Democrats like Ige and Caldwell and Hirono awake at night.
WHY BEING A DELEGATE/ALTERNATE IS IMPORTANT?
Since President Trump was the only candidate applying in Hawaii for our Presidential Caucus, the HRP was able to bind our National Delegates to President Trump’s reelection campaign. This eliminated the need to hold a Presidential Caucus. Since we did not have a Presidential Caucus, our County and State conventions will be our opportunity to show our support for President Trump, I encourage everyone to contact their Precinct President or District Chair to be appointed as a delegate/alternate.
So, please join your fellow party members. If you’re not already a delegate, apply today and then make plans to be at Moanalua Middle School 1289 Mahiole St, Honolulu, HI 96819, Saturday March 28, 2020 beginning at 9:00AM… Mahalo!
