Resolution to Support All Diplomatic Efforts to End the Ukraine War and An Account for All US Taxpayers’ Dollars Spent

Whereas, in December, Biden signed a bill with another $47 billion in military aid which brings taxpayers to nearly $100 billion dollars to Ukraine that has not been accurately accounted for. Whereas the war between Russia and Ukraine continues, Biden keeps sending military equipment and ammunition to Ukraine. There is no end in sight, and Biden has even said as much. Yet here in the United States, arms manufacturers can’t keep up with demand, and our own armed forces are already running dangerously low.

Whereas US leaders need to explain how this is a good investment for national security when our borders are wide-open, known terrorist and dangerous killer drugs are coming in and cartel sex traffickers who brutalize women and children thrive in what has become a billion dollar slave industry.

Be it hereby Resolved, that the Harris County Republican Party endorses reasonable and good faith diplomatic efforts to end the Ukraine war and an account for all US taxpayers’ dollars spent.

Respectfully submitted,

Patricia Anne Moore

Harris County Republican Party Resolution Supporting the Freedom of County Executive Committees

WHEREAS, Texas Election Code (TEC) Chapter 161 begins with the basic principle that a “political party retains all of its inherent powers except as limited”; and

WHEREAS, the government should allow County Executive Committees maximum flexibility and minimum limitation to conduct their internal affairs without state interference; and

WHEREAS, the county chair is currently elected by the countywide primary electorate, precinct chairs are currently elected by each precinct’s primary electorate, vacancies to each office are currently filled by the entire County Executive Committee (CEC), and the county chair and precinct chairs work together as elected party officers to conduct the business of the CEC; and

WHEREAS, the status quo in TEC Chapter 171 allows a State Party and each CEC to determine the method, through its rules and bylaws, for filling precinct chair vacancies and for conducting other internal party business (i.e., unrelated to the conduct of primary elections), with broad discretion; and

WHEREAS, a healthy deliberative CEC delegates to the chair and the voting members, through its rules and bylaws, a balance of authority and powers that reflects the representative will of the countywide partisan electorate that chooses the chair and the will of individual precinct partisan electorates that choose the precinct chairs; and

WHEREAS, a cookie-cutter, government-mandated approach to filling precinct chair vacancies, calling meetings, and setting CEC fiscal policies ignores the local political needs in each CEC and long-standing parliamentary principles about the balance of power between a county chair and the body that chair leads; and

WHEREAS, Texas House Bill 4636, as introduced, would give the County Chair the sole authority to “appoint a replacement” for each precinct chair vacancy, thus eliminating a current authority of precinct chairs; and

WHEREAS, House Bill 4636, as introduced, would give the County Chair the sole authority to “set the schedule for meetings and the agenda for each meeting,” thus eliminating any flexibility for CECs to have other methods of calling meetings or setting meeting agendas; and

WHEREAS, House Bill 4636, as introduced, would give the County Chair the sole authority as “administrator of all party accounts and contracts,” thus eliminating any flexibility for precinct chairs to provide for checks and balances in the CEC on whose executive board they were elected; and

WHEREAS, the House Election Committee substitute of House Bill 4636, on which Harris County Republican Representative Valoree Swanson was the only opposing Committee vote, made only minimal changes to the introduced version; and

WHEREAS, while the Harris County Republican Party (HCRP) is fortunate at present to have a County Chair who works respectfully with and who shares deliberations with the Executive Committee, the situation in our county may not always remain optimal under a future chair and unfortunately does not similarly exist in all Republican CECs in Texas; and

WHEREAS, statutes to eliminate every opportunity for precinct chairs in every CEC, regardless of the local circumstances, to have a say in filling vacancies, calling meetings, or exercising even limited authority over contracts would reduce precinct chairs to mere accessories to the powerful county chair; and

WHEREAS, the ability for outside forces to influence the election of a single chair is much easier than the ability to influence the many individual elections of grassroots precinct chairs in the neighborhoods of an entire county; and

WHEREAS, a model of CECs in which power rests solely with the county chair would necessarily weaken the current model in which precinct chairs and the county chair share authority and determine that sharing through the CEC’s properly adopted rules and bylaws; and

WHEREAS, House Bill 4636, as introduced, represents such a radical shift in tradition and parliamentary principles about the balance of power in CECs that, if passed, would render large portions of our HCRP Bylaws in conflict with TEC; now

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Harris County Republican Party STRENUOUSLY OBJECTS to Texas House Bill 4636, as introduced, and to any bill that would similarly alter the necessary balance of power that currently exists between a county chair and a CEC’s precinct chairs; and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that a copy of this resolution be sent to each member of the Texas Legislature.

Resolution Supporting SB14/HB1686

WHEREAS, God created man in His own image; male and female created He them, and man cannot successfully override God’s creation; and

WHEREAS, children are a gift from God and should not be subject to the abomination of mutilation under the guise of “gender transition” and “affirming care”; and

WHEREAS, gender cannot be modified, or transitioned, and affirming a lie against the laws of nature, and nature’s God cause irreparable damage; and

WHEREAS, public money or public assistance should NEVER be used to provide these horrific procedures and treatments; and

WHEREAS, in the past years, the public has seen the irreparable damage that “gender transition” and “gender reassignment” procedures have caused; now

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Harris County Republican Party fully supports passage of SB14/HB1686 to protect Texas children; and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that Harris County Republican Party publicly commends all authors, sponsor, and co-sponsors of this bill and strongly recommends that all necessary measures be implemented for passage of this bill.

Resolution to Withdraw the Indictment of President Trump

Whereas The indictment of President Trump by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg is a perversion of our institutions of government in order to silence political opposition, and

Never before has a former president been arrested or indicted, and

Donald Trump has demonstrated certain unique qualities hated by the establishment, such as the courage to stand up to that globalist establishment and also the ability to inspire ordinary Americans with a vision of a better future, and

This indictment is only the latest in a series of attacks on Trump, which began when he announced his campaign for the Presidency in 2015 and has been continuous for eight years,

Therefore, The Harris County Republican Party Executive Committee denounces the actions of the Manhattan District Attorney as out of bounds in the United States Constitutional Republic and calls for the withdrawal of the indictment.

Respectfully submitted, 

Evelyn Lantz

256 Precinct Chair
