August President’s Thoughts

    August President’s Thoughts  

The pandemic has changed many things but not the determination of the Hill Country Chapter-Texas Democratic Women Board from working to turn Texas Blue.  The Board has had three Zoom meetings.  We are proud to announce the standing committee chairs: Communications – Judy Lundquist; Legislative- Mary Ellen Summerlin; Membership – Barbara Young; Bylaws & Parliamentarian – Barbara Wise and Public Relations & Newsletter – Jeannie Berger.  

We have been busy looking into ways we can have our monthly meetings.  None of us wish to attend a luncheon where we might expose ourselves to the virus.  With that in mind we are looking into streaming our business meetings and programs.  Look for information how this will be done in a future newsletter.  

Our big project has been raising money to give our candidates running for Texas positions.  The auction of items that had been donated for the “Molly” event are now being sold.  Each week we are presenting five items and members are bidding on them.  Bids are sent to sotxpta@ktc.com.  Participants are notified when their bid has been received.  The participants are given a chance to rebid should a bid higher than theirs is made.  We have four more weeks.  One week will be political memorabilia.  A beautiful ring has been donated and it will be a special offering.  We hope you will look for the auction items and bid.  100% of the money will be donated to the candidates.
 
Look for a big surprise after Joe Biden announces his Vice President.  Your board is working to make sure you know we are thinking about you.  We want to keep you connected with information on the election as well as know we value your membership.   We will be joining with other Democratic clubs to promote events being held for candidates.  Joe Herrera, one of our HCCTDW members is having a fundraising event on August 12.  More information on this is in this newsletter.  On August 26, Judge Rebecca Martinez is holding a town hall type meeting for candidates running for judgeships, including several seeking Supreme Court positions.  We have been asked to write postcards with information about the judges.  Postcards will be provided as well as a script writers may follow if they wish.  We hope you will be willing to help with this blitz.  

The Democratic National Convention will be held via the internet.  We hope you will be able to tune in.  Have some fun in your home by watching the speeches and donning the special things you would wear if you were a delegate.  Make some noise and cheer when Joe Biden accepts the nomination.  Stake out your yard signs, put those bumper stickers on your car and proudly declare you are going to help turn Texas Blue and put Democrats in Washington.  We have to put Joe Biden in the White House and it will take each and everyone of us talking to our neighbors, writing letters and standing up for our candidates.
