Looks like it's that time again, time to reorganize the local Democratic and Republican parties.
According to the rogue blogger, Brian Hornback, the red team picks officers, delegates, whatever for local precincts on Jan. 17 at 7 p.m. Then on Feb. 2 at 10 a.m. some folks can vote at the party's reorganization. Click right smack here for the details and to see who is running for party chairman.
The blue team's next convention is set for April, some time, according to the hippie's blog site. Find that entry right smack here. I didn't see a whole lot of information (just some bickering over Mark Padgett), so I headed over to the party's website. Looks like the Democrats will actually hold their convention for delegates selection on March 10. The party also will host a March 24 Congressional district convention.
So, that said, I'm not sure if it's March of April.
You can find that info right smack here.
We've got some local elections this year, but they're for non-partisan Knoxville City Council seats. There are, however, some big county races set for 2014.
