Tammy Blair is the Chairwoman of the Cherokee County GOP. Right now her county executive committee (CEC) is at the epicenter of Texas GOP upheaval and reconstitution. Cherokee is providing political drama that can’t be authored on a Holly-weird script.
On October 31, Cherokee County’s GOP CEC put on the floor a #RULE44 resolution for debate. The resolution, which carries official party censure and recommendation of sanctions by the state party, named State Rep. Travis Clardy (R-Nacogdoches RER56).
Clardy showed up for the showdown! And, as one would expect, it wasn’t long before verbal jabs and stagecraft were on full display.
It was Blair’s job to try and keep order in the meeting, give all sides a fair hearing on the matter, and let the body deliberate to its consensus conclusion. But, Clardy didn’t make that easy.
When asked what she believed to be the essence of Clardy’s argument against being censured, Blair said, “That he is a conservative. And, he is serving the county and his district well. And, we ‘don’t understand how things work’, and he had to balance principles with priorities. I’m not sure what that means.”
Blair, very in-step with her executive committee, shares their translation of Clardy’s performance that night. It appears they didn’t take the entire dog-and-pony show with a lot of humor.
