DOUBLE SPRINGS - Officials across not only Winston County but the state will have an opportunity to discuss state issues with Governor Kay Ivey, who will be keynote speaker at the Ronald Reagan Republican dinner Saturday, March 5.
Jerry Mobley, chairman of the Winston County Republican Party, noted that county party vice chairman Greg Farris, who also helps organize the Ronald Reagan dinner, was instrumental in helping to secure Governor Ivey.
“We talked about a speaker and everybody agreed that if Kay Ivey would come, that it would be good,” Mobley explained. “She agreed to come.”
Mobley expressed Governor Ivey seemed excited to once again visit Winston County. Ivey’s last visit to the county was Oct. 1, 2019, in a special program on the steps of the Winston County Courthouse in Double Springs.
Mobley noted the March 5, event would give not only those in the Republican party but the public as well, as a chance to talk with her about issues facing the state and needs in Winston County.
“Anyone who wants to can come hear the governor,” Mobley pointed out.
Doors to the event, planned at the Double Springs Municipal Building on Highway 195, will open at 5:30 p.m. with a catered buffet dinner starting at 6 p.m., according to Farris.
Live entertainment is being planned during the dinner portion of the event, Farris said.
Governor Ivey will be the keynote speaker at 7 p.m., followed by short speeches from state and local candidates seeking election in the upcoming May primary election.
Tickets for $25 will go on sale this week and will be available from individuals involved in the dinner across Winston County. Tickets will also be sold at the door the night of the event, Farris noted.
Tickets are available through party members or by calling Farris at (205) 272-0007, Ronnie Mobley at (205) 269-0073 or Bonnie Sachs at (205) 272-0820.
