Liberty County Republicans host meet-and-greet in Dayton

One hundred years ago, women did not have the right to vote in the United States. The Women's Suffrage movement changed all of that, and on Aug. 18, 1920, the 19th Amendment was ratified, which granted women the right to vote. Today, women are seeking public office. In Liberty County, five women are hoping to earn elected positions across the county. Pictured left to right are Michelle Merendino, Farrah Harper, Jennifer Bergman, Tammy Bishop and Terry Bacon. Merendino, Harper and Bacon are vying for the judge seat for the Liberty County Court at Law No. 2. Bergman is contending for district attorney and Bishop is running for Pct. 1 constable.

Dozens of people turned out Feb. 11 for the Liberty County Republican Party’s meet-and-greet at the Dayton Community Center. The event was an opportunity for voters to get to know the candidates for public office and learn more about their platform.

Most of the candidates attended and hosted festive booths with treats and giveaways.
