Welcome to TDW 2013!
We have just finished a very good convention with a lot of interest, enthusiasm, and ready to turn Texas Blue. We know who the responsible party will be to accomplish this – Texas Democratic Women!
I want to challenge each of you to come up with a slogan for this that we can use in promoting our cause of electing Democratic women and Democrats. The Summer Retreat is July 19-20 in Waco and we will choose a winning slogan then. Send your slogan ideas to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or TDW, P.O. Box 2211, Austin, TX 78768.
My goals for this year are lofty! I would for TDW to be 50 chapters strong. We have chapters that are no longer active. Let’s reactivate them! We have some chapters that are small. Let’s help them grow by mentorship from nearby chapters! There are a lot of resources out there available to our chapters and we can certainly spread the wealth around!
One other goal is to have more Patron and Finance Council members. There are a lot of blue Patron pins and gold Finance Council pins that need homes. With these strides we can elect more Democrats!
President Obama’s slogan in 2012 was “Forward.” Perhaps, we can have “Forward Together,” because only TOGETHER can we move FORWARD.
