A scene from the Pickens GOP Mass Meeting and Convention held eariler this month that has been ruled invalid by the state and which must now be held again.
At a hearing Sunday, March 17 in Gainesville, the Georgia 9th District GOP declared the Pickens County GOP’s Mass Meeting and Convention void following complaints that it did not follow proper procedure.
As a result of the 9th District GOP’s findings, all executive committee elections held during the Pickens GOP’s Convention on Saturday, March 9 are nullified. A new Mass Meeting and County Convention must be held for the Pickens County Republican Party, but this time the 9th and 14th District GOP committees will run the show (Pickens County is split between those two districts). The Pickens GOP will not be involved in organizing, registration, procedural process, or executive committee elections.
