Commissioners approves joint agreement for primary election

The Ochiltree County Commissioners’ Court met on Monday morning for their regular meeting.

Among other items on the agenda, the commissioners approved a joint resolution between Ochiltree County’s Republican Party, the Democratic Party of the State of Texas, and the Ochiltree County Clerk’s office to conduct joint primary elections on March 3, 2020 and, if necessary, primary runoff elections on May 26, 2020.

Because Ochiltree County doesn’t have a Democratic Party chair, the joint agreement allows County Clerk Cassi Laxton to conduct the primary on the state party’s behalf.

PPW launches annual scholarship drive

The Panhandle Professional Women started their annual Project Christmas Card scholarship drive.

Donation boxes have been placed at several locations around town, complete with envelopes, for local residents to contribute to the fund. The boxes are decorated to look like green or silver Christmas gifts.

The concept behind Project Christmas Card is simple — people are asked to contribute the amount of money they would normally spend for Christmas cards and stamps.

Instead of sending Christmas cards, the donors will have their names listed in a holiday greetings advertisement in The Perryton Herald.

The deadline to make contributions to be listed in the full page ad in the Herald’s Dec. 22 Christmas edition is Monday, Dec. 16.

Seliger touches on variety of topics

Seliger touches on variety of topics

District 31 Senator Kel Seliger spoke at a town hall meeting late Wednesday morning at Frank Phillips College Allen Campus.

Seliger started the meeting by talking about some of the accomplishments of the 86th Legislature, which ended in May. Among the accomplishments Seliger discussed was the state budget.

“We passed a budget that’s about $250 billion,” said Seliger. “Over the previous two years, it was $215 billion. When the economy in Texas is good, it can be really good, so if you’re going to raise that budget, you need to spend it for the benefit of the state.”
