Back to last week's meeting...
Farmer & Buchanan surprised their committee by presenting their decisions to resign as chair & vice chair. Buchanan & Farmer will be completely removed from their involvement on the committee, since they are not a part of their counties' delegations from any of the five counties who make up the 1st District (Creek, Rogers, Tulsa, Wagoner, & Washington).
The committee decided to hold a special meeting in May, to select a chairman and vice chairman. The individuals chosen will then also serve on the OKGOP Executive Committee, by mandate of the party's permanent rules.
In talking informally with some insiders, there appears to be a few names rumored to be suggested:
The primary function of District Committees is to plan & conduct a District convention every four years, to sent 3 delegates and 3 alternates to the National Convention. The District Conventions also present their preferred nominee for Presidential Elector, and alternate.
