April 2018 Meeting with Beverly Powell for State Senate


Can you see victory in November? We can! This month, we’re spotlighting two *VERY* competitive, winnable races — SD 10 and HD 92.

Our April guest is Beverly Powell, former Burleson ISD trustee and Democratic nominee for State Senate, District 10.

She’s taking on anti-education, anti-local control, and anti-economic development Konni Burton, who works for “Empower Texans” and a fundamentalist billionaire living far away from Tarrant County.

We’ll also get a campaign update from Steve Riddell for Texas House District 92. If you’re on Twitter, you’ve been enjoying Steve’s ongoing exchange with extremist anti-intellectual Stickland. Follow Steve online here.

See you on April 26, and bring a friend!

Adopt-a-Highway Cleanup

Democrats know environmental protection is essential to our health, quality of life and long-term economic growth. Let’s do our part in OUR community.

It’s time for our Adopt-a-Highway cleanup along Colleyville Boulevard/Grapevine Highway.

We’ll gather upstairs at Market Street for coffee, split into teams and head out.

TXDOT will provide safety vests and trash bags. MCD will provide bottled water. (Please wear closed-toe shoes and bring gloves.)

Supporting Steve Riddell for State Representative, HD 92


It’s only just spring in The Mid-Cities, but the November election will be here before you know it.

After much discussion, your executive board and members have decided to throw our full support behind one #TXlege candidate this cycle, rather than some funding here and there.

Steve Riddell is taking on Tarrant County’s worst of the worst in Jonathan Stickland, known for his rape “jokes,” ineffective lawmaking, and blocking any constituent online who disagrees with him.

Stickland is a high school dropout who worked as a pest control tech, before the local Tea Party extremists found him and turned him into an “oil and gas consultant.” Yeah, right.

Steve Riddell is a businessman whose number one priority is public education. HD 92 deserves a lawmaker who will champion education and opportunity, not partisan games and potty police.

We will be working with Steve on upcoming fundraisers, voter outreach, vote by mail applications for November, and more because THIS IS A WINNABLE RACE.

$25 buys one week of online ads
$50 buys two weeks
$100 pays canvassers
$250-500 funds reception costs
$1500 buys next round of door literature
$2000 funds vote by mail applications

Will you make an additional donation today to support Steve Riddell?

Sometimes you get to work for a great candidate (Steve), sometimes against a rotten one (Stick)—in HD 92, you get both! Join us!

Ride the Wave with The Mid-Cities Democrats


The votes are in and whether your favorite candidate won, lost, or is headed to a runoff, contested races helped boost Democratic turnout locally and across the state! Democratic turnout of 1.1 million votes is up more than 100% from 510,000 in 2014, and Democrats spent little in paid media.

Our base is enthusiastic, with an early vote at a huge 47% of the total vote. A Dem is running for every congressional seat and for almost 90% of seats in the #TXlege. We have a diverse, strong coordinated statewide campaign that reflects the Texas electorate.

The blue wave has reached Texas and we want you to ride it with us. In the last few months, The Mid-Cities Democrats:

• Introduced you to the candidates running for Congress, District 24

• Kicked-off Democratic Nominee for Lt. Governor Mike Collier’s statewide public education tour

• Held the only Tarrant County gubernatorial debate

• Were the only Tarrant County club to feature our Democratic nominees for Land Commissioner, Railroad Commissioner, and Comptroller

• Hosted Ed Espinoza, Executive Director of Progress Texas

As we do each cycle, our events will soon transition from speaker-focused to action-focused, with phone banks and canvassing coordinated with local campaigns. We know it takes hard work to get our candidates elected.

Will you support this work by joining/renewing/ or making an additional one-time donation?

Join your neighbors, make new friends, and help The Mid-Cities Democrats defeat Trump Republicans in November.
