Greetings, Fellow Webb County Democrats,
Almost three years ago, March, 2020, our Webb County Democrats elected me Chair of our Webb County Democratic Party, and this past March, I was elected once again, a responsibility that I consider one of the most important in my lifetime. And since transparency was one of my primary goals, an annual report of WCDP’s progress has been a commitment as well.
My platform goals had been very specific: a strong, inclusive, community-wide education-outreach program, an equally strong voter registration plan, and then a concerted effort to assure that all who were registered actually voted. Also essential to our Democratic, grassroots community: a precinct chair for every single one of the 78 precincts in Webb County. And finally, my intention to work in tandem with all who were just as willing to better our Webb County Community as I was.
Three years later, I am exceedingly proud of the impressive work that our Webb Democrats have accomplished, i.e. growing the seventeen precinct chairs that I inherited to forty two today, a dynamic GOTV Committee that has registered over three thousand new voters in the past three years, special attention and support given to young Democrats based in TAMIU, coalitions built both with fellow border counties and with local advocacy groups that also espouse our Democratic platform, a rich kaleidoscope of community events that are telling the story of our Democratic Party, a vibrant array of social media venues, amongst them our own web site, two FB pages, Twitter and Instagram pages that reach thousands every single day.
Even though our hopes for a saner, stronger, fairer and kinder Texas were dashed with the defeat of Beto and his team of exceptional state candidates, AND our own Webb County voter turnout was nowhere what we were working towards, we can still be proud of what we did accomplish, to illustrate:
So…for now, let’s take time to refresh, get a better understanding of what our WCDP achieved in 2021-2022, and then, pledge to come back together again…. because we are not done yet!
In closing… I am very proud of our Webb County Democratic Party, proud of our many volunteers who have contributed hundreds of community service hours, proud of our elected officials whose servant leadership exemplifies Democracy in Action, proud of our benefactors whose generosity fuels our efforts….and looking forward now to 2023!
