Conroe, September 13 – Montgomery County Republican Party (MCRP) Vice Chairman Jon Bouche contends that he is trying to unify the local Party, as the nation approaches the vital November 8, 2022, mid-term General Election. Bouche presided over an MCRP meeting of its County Executive Committee (CEC), which consists of all of the Precinct Chairs, on Tuesday September 6, 2022, at which approximately half of the elected Republican Precinct Chairs attended.

After some of the Precinct Chairs called the September 6 meeting, the competing faction of MCRP, under the leadership of County Republican Chairman Bryan Christ, called another meeting for the same time but a different location. Christ’s meeting failed to establish a quorum to conduct business.

In order to establish unity in the Republican Party prior to the critical elections in just six weeks, Bouche’s faction came to a decision to re-adopt the Party Bylaws which served to govern MCRP from 2020 to 2022 and which Christ had accepted during his first term as County Chairman. Bouche explained, “Because the adoption of the Montgomery County Republican Party bylaws on July 23, 2022, is in dispute and may not be resolved for some time, we…agree[d] to be governed by the 2020-2022 bylaws for the 2022-2024 biennium in the interest of party unity.”

The vote at the duly constituted September 6 CEC meeting was unanimous. Furthermore, the meeting ratified the election of all MCRP officers in compliance with the Bylaws and also filled all Precinct Chair vacancies, so that every Republican voting Precinct in Montgomery County would have a local Party leader.

Bouche told The Golden Hammer, Montgomery County’s leading daily newspaper, “It’s critical that we go into the November General Election as a unified Party. There are important elections both locally and nationally on November 8. The majority of the Republican Precinct Chairs and I want the in-fighting to stop, so that we can march forward with our General Election Nominees on the strong Republican Party Platform.”
