January 2018 Meeting with Román McAllen for TXRRC


Join fellow Mid-Cities Democrats at our first meeting of 2018!

Our guest speaker is Román McAllen, running for the Texas Railroad Commission, which oversees the oil and gas industry, pipeline safety, and not railroads.

Texans needs a public advocate to enforce existing environmental and public safety protections. Big business has three friends on the three-person commission. Regular Texans have none.

“Having a regulatory agency that is bought and paid for by the industry that it’s supposed to regulate is as costly as it is pointless,” – Texans for Public Justice Director Craig McDonald.

Let’s reform the TXRRC, starting in 2018.

TX-24 Democratic Primary Candidate Forum


Our executive branch is in chaos and we can’t vote him out until 2020.

Our judicial branch hangs in the balance and is untouchable in the upcoming 2018 elections.

But take heart, rational Americans. There are many state and federal legislative races up for grabs next November and this month, we’re spotlighting Congressional District 24.

The Dallas Morning News says Rep. Kenny Marchant is scared of his constituents. Because of his voting record, he should be.

Please join us for our TX-24 Democratic Primary Candidate Forum, featuring candidates Todd Allen, John Biggan, and Jan McDowell. Our forum will be moderated by journalist James Russell, who has written for D Magazine, Dallas Voice, Huffington Post, Texas Jewish Post and

Mike Collier for Lt. Governor #TXEDReform Tour Kickoff

UPDATE: Due to rain, we must move locations to The REC of Grapevine (“Community” side). Our new start time is 7pm.

Join us on September 28 to hear from Mike Collier, Democratic candidate for Lieutenant Governor, as he unveils a major education reform proposal. This is Mike’s only Tarrant County stop.

It’s no secret that in Texas we have a deeply broken school finance system. Across our state, parents, teachers and communities have been doing their best to offer the quality education our children deserve, only to be told each year that they need to do more with less. It’s time we tell the politicians in Austin to stop shortchanging our schools. We can deliver meaningful education reform that puts more dollars in the classroom and gives our teachers the tools they need to do great work educating our students. And we can do it while closing a massive corporate tax loophole that has let out-of-state businesses send our tax dollars out of Texas.

Mike will unveil his vision for closing big corporate tax loopholes and rebuilding education to make Texas proud again.

MCD Board note:
We’ll provide pizza slices, veggie trays, and cold drinks for folks before Mike’s talk for a $5 suggested donation. If you’re eating with us, arrive at 7 p.m. Please pre-pay at this link to ensure a correct food count.
