RUSK – County leaders are laying the groundwork for a March 3 primary election, meeting at 9 a.m. Tuesday at the Cherokee County Courthouse in Rusk to consider approval of several election-related items. According to a meeting agenda, the Commissioners' Court will consider a joint resolution and statistical information for a joint Primary 2020 election, as well as separate contracts with Republican and Democratic parties, which have candidates in the March primary.
