Giles County Demos Plan Reorganization Convention

Preparations continue for the Giles County Democratic Party Reorganization Convention on March 18.

A room has been reserved at the Pulaski Recreation and Community Center on March 18, two possible speakers have been contacted, and plans for a signature event to draw attention to the party were discussed at a recent meeting.

County party executive committee members will be on the agenda to be elected for the next two years.

Attorney Joe Fowlkes, a former Tennessee State Representative, was suggested as a speaker, and Richard Dunnavant, a Giles County Democratic Party member, will ask him.

Fowlkes, a Pulaski attorney, is a Brick Church resident.

Keidron Turner, a Pulaski college student, also was suggested as a speaker.

Laurie Wade, an executive committee member, suggested county Democrats organize a voter registration effort to increase interest and public visibility in the party.

“Why complain if you don’t want to do anything about it,” she asked.

Other suggestions were to have a sign with the Democratic Party’s principles on it, or to have a highly visible project.


These committees were announced for the convention:

Reorganization Convention: David Daniels, Sharon Rush, Maxie Trotter, Susan Coleman,

Tom Gattis, Dunnavant, Carol McComiskey, Paul Manke;

• Credentials: Rush, Dunnavant, Coleman;

• Rules: Gattis;

• By Laws: Manke, McComiskey;

• Seargant at Arms: Daniels, Trotter;

In other business:

• Janice Tucker was elected to the executive committee;

• Buying a quarter page advertisement to publicize priniciples of the Giles County Democratic Party was approved.

• Democratic Party members continued discussing ways to start a student Democratic Party at the University of Tennessee Southern campus.

• Feb. 21, 6 p.m., will be the next meeting. Previous meetings have been held at the Pulaski Recreation and Community Center.
