I believe that the strength of our Party is found in our local county party organizations. I have served my own local county party in real and meaningful ways over the past years. It’s no small challenge to be a principled Republican in Galveston County, but that experience has taught me that while we may not always agree on everything, politics is a team sport. I am most proud of my grass-roots activism that has opened a new dialogue with those who are not party affiliated. Outreach into our community is vital if we want to build our base.
I have worked to win votes for local and statewide candidates in every single neighborhood, made our political opponents spend time and resources on races they thought they would otherwise win in a walk, and gave every citizen of Galveston County a clear choice between the Republican candidate and our political opposition. The people that deserve the most credit, of course, are our Republican candidates and their families, who each made tremendous personal sacrifices to carry our Party’s banner. Each of our Republican candidates, whether they won or lost, deserves our respect, and our utmost thanks.
