Saturday, August 18
10 a.m. – 4 p.m.

A good Democrat once told me his grandmother used to say that when things got
tough, it was time to stand up on his hind legs and fight. There’s no tougher time for
the Democratic Party in Texas than right now. If we’re going to fight, we need to get
into shape to win!
Put on your thinking cap, lace up your walking shoes, sharpen your pencil, and plug in
your laptop. Let’s get ourselves ready for the upcoming campaign, which may be one of
the most important ones of our lifetime. Seriously. We need to win this one.
This Summit is planned to facilitate more work in less time (unless you can spend a night
to relax in Tyler). Texas Democratic Party staff will be on hand to provide training in:

Michele Petty (Texas Supreme Court)
