On Monday, May 16, the Harris County Republican Party Executive Committee approved 37 new Precinct Chairs! Judge Dan Hinde of the 269th Civil Court administered the oath of office to these new chairs, who are eager to help defeat Democrats in November. This was one of the biggest incoming groups of Precinct Chairs to date. These new Precinct Chairs come from all over Harris County, spanning virtually every Senate District. Kudos go to the Vacancy Committee members who have devoted many hours interviewing candidates, including many late nights of hard work. They exemplify the dedication and determination we need to keep growing the Republican Party!
