Democrats plan to open Cameron headquarters
CAMERON—The Milam County Democratic Party will open an office on the square in downtown Cameron on Dec. 3.
"That's the first day local candidates can file for a spot on the primary ballot," said Party Chairman Richard Stone. "We'll open up the office at 9 a.m. and stay until 6."
Stone said the headquarters
office is in the quarters
same location the party occupied during the 2008 election, 112 E. 1st Street. "It's a great location for us, right across the street from the courthouse and across the mall from the county clerk's office."
The Cameron Chamber of Commerce will recognize the opening with a ribbon cutting ceremony at 4:30 followed by a reception.
"We're encouraging folks to come by and meet the candidates running in the Democratic Primary, and encouraging candidates to hang around while we cut the ribbon," Stone said.
Local party officials intend to have the office open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 4, the last day to file for a place on the primary election ballot. "If you want to file for a place on the ballot but can't make it those times, please give me a call," Stone said. "We can set up a time to get together."
There are several county offices with terms expiring at the end of 2010 including Milam County Judge, county commissioners for Precincts 2 and 4, all four justices of the peace, the county treasurer, district clerk and county clerk. The primary election will be held March 2, 2010.
