NOTE: Don’t forget our Summer Retreat in Waco July 19th and 20th!
I can’t believe May is over and as my thoughts turn to summer, our Summer Retreat will soon be upon us. We have a great agenda of speakers and workshops.
We also have three more chapters ready to join TDW. Big things are happening in TDW and we plan to be ready to elect even more women to office in 2014.
I had the pleasure of visiting with Sen. Claire McCaskill at the Annie’s List 10th Anniversary luncheon where she was the keynote speaker. I gave her one of our gold TDW pins. She mentioned she sits on several committees with Sen. Cruz and she would wear it to a meeting to see if he recognizes it. Considering Sen. Cruz vetoed the Violence Against Women act, despite having two daughters, he clearly doesn’t care about women’s safety, so if he does not recognize the pin, he soon will. Texas women have had enough and in 2018 he will know who TDW is, because we will be organizing the women of this state together to vote him out of office.
