On March 18, 2017, Governor Greg Abbott will be visiting Trinity County to speak at the Trinity Community Center. This marks the first time in the county's history that Trinity has been visited by a sitting Governor. This also marks the fulfillment of a long-standing promise on the part of Governor Abbott, made during his initial run for office, when he vowed to personally visit whatever county had the most precincts with a Republican majority. The event, also acting as a celebration of the first time in 200 years that Trinity County became a Republican territory, was delayed multiple times due to repeated schedule conflicts.
The event, hosted by the Trinity County Republican party, will take place on a Saturday evening, with dinner being provided. Standard tickets are available for $35, and tickets that will get attendees a picture with the Governor are available for $50. Tables seating eight can also be purchased. Seating is limited and all tickets will be sold in advance, so interested parties are encouraged to call Scott Womack (936-204-3111) or JoAnn Kennedy (936-215-0093) for more information and to purchase tickets.
