ODESSA CIVIC ENGAGEMENT PROJECT
“UNDERSTANDING POLITICAL PARTIES”
ODESSATX– the Odessa Civic Engagement Project (OCEP) in a continuing effort to engage local citizens has created a program aimed at giving the local citizens of Ector County an educated look into the Republican and Democratic Parties with a program entitled "Understanding Political Parties". This portion is in conjunction with the upcoming primary elections.
"This part of the OCEP series will seek to give those that attend a better understanding of the major political parties", stated Isidro Gonzales, coordinator of the event, "The participants should walk away knowing what the similarities and differences are between the Democratic and a Republican parties".
The Ector County Democratic and Republican chairs, Bobby Duncan (D) and Shane Marler (R), will each give a presentation followed by a question and answer session. The "Understanding Political Parties" session will be held on February 18, 2010 at 6:00pm in Annex B of Odessa College north of the main campus, 201 W. University.
Currently, OCEP is taking reservations for those wishing to attend the program. Participation is free. Please send your name, address, and phone number to ocep or call (432)853-6197 or (432)349-1280.
