Another Stickland Failure

Embarrassing. Appalling.

This week, Democrats and Republicans came together in the Texas House to pass House Bill 3, funding full day pre-K, teacher and campus staff pay raises, investing in students, not test scores, reducing recapture, and lowering school property taxes.

Only one lawmaker voted against this massive reform bill. HD 92 has no voice for progress on public school finance/education/taxation with Rep. Stickland in office. Send him packing.

We are fundraising now for our 2020 nominee.

Stickland is funded by West Texas dark money. He’s beaten every Republican challenger because the hard right turns out in primaries. The only way to win is by electing a Democrat to serve HD 92. We’ve helped elect smart, qualified, and fair Democrats who care about our community, the environment, education, healthcare AND you.

Help us take the district in 2020.

March Meeting—Winning in HD 92 (2019 & 2020)

MidCitiesDems

Whether you’re a longtime voter/first time activist or a seasoned campaign volunteer, there are many ways to elect Democrats and have a great time doing it.

HD 92 is the most-winnable of Texas House districts locally and in the larger U.S. Congressional District, TX-24. There are smart Democrats running for May 2019 local races and for #TXlege and U.S. Congress in November 2020 (with Democratic Primary in March). At our March meeting we’ll hear from and discuss:

  • The HD 92 Precinct Chair Team about the data and strategy to win precinct by precinct
  • Tarrant Together’s President about the new PAC and their plans for NE Tarrant County
  • Swing Left TX-24’s blueprint pre-primary

Local Elections—February General Meeting

MidCitiesDems

We’re dedicated to electing Texas Democrats—from city hall to the Texas Legislature. At city hall and public school administration buildings, decisions are made that impact your daily life and your wallet.

Last year, we helped push back against extremists (supported by Empower Texans dark money and HD 92’s current state rep) to elect qualified candidates in Hurst, Euless, and Bedford. At this month’s meeting, we’ll hear from council members Bhojani, Cogan, and Shepard.

Bedford City Council member Amy Sabol had a grassroots win in 2017 and she’s up for reelection this year. She’ll reflect on her first term and plans for the next.

Several other smart Democrats are running for the May 2019 local elections, and we’ll hear from them, too.

See you there and bring a friend!

New Year, New #TXLege

New Year, New #TXLege—Education, Taxes, and Gun Violence Prevention

It’s a New Year and a new Texas Legislature!

With so many extremists sent home in November, there’s opportunity for Texans to support good legislation to invest in our students and educators, to lessen high-stakes/high-cost testing, while reducing local property taxes when the legislature pays its fair share of public education. It’s also time to make our schools and communities safer by passing common sense gun laws like red flag laws and universal background checks. Unfortunately, HD 92’s current Texas State Representative is promoting his guns everywhere/for anyone bill again. Find out what you can do to defeat it.

At our January meeting our guest speakers are Mike Sexton, Legislative Advocacy Chair for the GCISD Council of PTAs, and Carolyn Daniel for Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America. They’ll tell us which bills to support, which to oppose, and how.
