Elections Matter!

A few months ago at a Republican Women’s Club lunch, I met a woman who was talking about the high crime rate in Houston. She said that every time she sees a post on Facebook or NextDoor about some criminal activity in Houston or her neighborhood, she posts, “Elections matter!”

What a simple, but effective way to get our point across!

Nationally, we are seeing the negative impact of the Biden administration’s and Democrat-led Congress’s policies. Progressive legislation with a huge price tag is being rammed through Congress. President Biden from Day 1 has been signing Executive Orders that have serious outcomes for the security and prosperity of our country that will resonate beyond his four years in office.

Locally, we see what failed Democrat policies and leadership has brought us. Houston’s violent crime rate has surpassed Chicago’s. Local Democrat leadership blames it on the results of Covid. But, last time I checked – Chicago was dealing with Covid, too. Our increasing crime rate is a direct result of the activist Democrat DA and activist Democrat judges who have created a revolving door for criminals in the Harris County Criminal Courts!

Four years after Hurricane Harvey – Mayor Turner and Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo have done nothing to ensure Houstonians are better prepared against flooding!

Then there is Houston ISD. Another example of how Democrat leadership has failed our children. The HISD board would rather talk about masks mandates and critical race theory vs. how to improve our failing schools and ensure our children have the education they need for a bright future.

Today the Harris County Republican Party is energized and focused on strengthening our ground game as we look to the 2022 elections. We have had over 400 volunteers sign up since January to help the local party in our efforts. The Executive Committee swore in 57 new precinct chairs a week ago – the largest number ever! Last month we had the most successful Lincoln Reagan Dinner in our history with 1200 people in attendance and 650 people watching at home virtually.

So, the next time you see a post on social media about flooding, crime or other issues that are the direct result of failed Democrat leadership – take the time to post: #ElectionsMatter!

Warm regards-
