Get Involved – Come to the Tarrant County Republican Judges Petition-Signing Event this Thursday!

May 31, 2015

Do you want to play in important role in electing Republican judges in Tarrant County and in Texas in the next election cycle?

Come to the 2015 Republican Judges Petition-Signing Event:

Rough Draft Petition-Signing Postcard

How much does it cost?  The event is free to all Tarrant County Republicans.

Why is it important to attend and participate?  Texas judges are required by law to collect signatures of at least 250 registered voters to be placed upon the ballot for re-election.  By signing a judge’s petition, you enable them to have their names placed on the Republican ballot.  (Note: Signing a judge’s petition does not constitute an endorsement. By signing you are not obligated to vote for that judge. You are not obligated to vote at all.) (But anyone who signs a Republican judge’s petition will be ineligible to vote in the 2016 Democrat primary.)

Who hosts this event?  Every two years, the Tarrant County Republican Party invites all Tarrant County Republicans to lend their names in support of the incumbent Republican judges of Tarrant County – along with statewide incumbent Republican judges.  This is your opportunity to participate in Republican politics at the grassroots level and help ensure that conservative Republican judges are re-elected to office.

How many incumbent Republican judges are participating?  This year, 18 incumbent Republican judges will be participating in the event, including three justices from the Texas Supreme Court, one judge from the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals, two justices from the court of appeals and a dozen Tarrant County District Court judges who need your help and support.  Please come and meet these judges.  Bring your spouse, friends, co-workers and neighbors.

How do I participate?  Just show up on Thursday, June 4, check in, sign your name on the petitions provided and then enjoy food and refreshments, courtesy of the Tarrant County Republican Party. It’s an enjoyable and easy way to help support the re-election efforts of the incumbent Republican judges.

How long will it take?  The petition-signing process takes less than 10 minutes, and you can arrive anytime between 4:00 & 6:30pm.  After you have signed the petitions, feel free to stay, if you like, and visit with other Tarrant County Republicans.

Don’t miss this important opportunity to participate in Republican politics at the grassroots level and do your part to help ensure that conservative Republican judges are re-elected to office in 2016!

Announcing RPT Chair Candidate Forum & Straw Poll – This Saturday, February 7

February 1, 2015

 

RPT Chair Straw Poll Invitation

Republican Party of Texas State Chairman Steve Munisteri recently informed the State Republican Executive Committee that he will resign as State Chairman effective Saturday, March 7th at 1:00 p.m.

At the last meeting of the SREC, the Chairman proposed a bylaw amendment which would provide a seamless transition from the current Chair to a new Chair without the necessity of the Vice Chair taking over temporarily. The amendment allowed an outgoing Chair to set a future day for resignation on which date the election for a new Chair could be held. This bylaw requires the outgoing Chair to give at least 30 days written and irrevocable notice of a date and time certain.

As a result of this new bylaw, Chairman Munisteri will chair the business portion of the first quarterly meeting of the SREC, scheduled for March 7th in Austin. Other than the election of a new Chair, all business is expected to be concluded by 1:00 p.m. At that time, an election for a new State Chair will be held. Vice Chair Amy Clark will preside over the election which will include as many rounds of voting as necessary until one candidate receives over 50% of the votes of the SREC. Including the Vice Chair, there will be 63 voting members of the SREC, which means that 32 votes will constitute a majority.

Several of our local SREC members have declared that they will guided by the vote at this and other Straw Poll events being held throughout Texas.  Come and make your voices heard.

There are currently four announced candidates running for Chairman:

  • Dr. Robin Armstrong, Republican National Committeeman
  • Wade Emmert, Dallas County GOP Chair
  • Tom Mechler, Treasurer of the Republican Party of Texas
  • Jared Woodfill, former Harris County GOP Chair

President’s Message:

Justice Bonnie Sudderth, President of Fort Worth Republican Women

Justice Bonnie Sudderth, President of Fort Worth Republican Women

Happy New Year to all!

Fort Worth Republican Women started off with a bang this year, as so many of our members braved the cold precipitation on New Year’s Day to attend the inauguration of the first female District Attorney in Tarrant County history. Just after 2pm that day, Sheriff Dee Anderson administered the Oath of Office to Sharen Wilson in the rotunda of the 1895 Historical Courthouse to a packed audience.

Our own Debra Coffey and her husband Daryl performed an excellent job as emcees of the event, and at one point there was not a dry eye in the house as everyone joined in with the choir as they regaled us with our state’s official song – Texas, Our Texas!

Fort Worth Republican Women joined other groups in Tweeting live from the event, so those who were unable to attend could participate remotely as the ceremony proceeded. (New Year’s Resolution #1 – follow FWRepWomen on Twitter!)

One week later, Fort Worth Republican Women launched a new “first” – our Second Saturday Breakfasts!  On yet another cold January day, Fort Worth Republican Women welcomed a crowd – with many new faces – at Enchilada’s Ole for an informal networking and meeting opportunity over breakfast. Mayor Betsy Price kicked off the event with some brief remarks about our community, followed by a healthy Q&A session afterwards.

The food and fellowship was warm and enjoyable, and we enjoyed a diverse crowd – from toddlers to septuagenarians with a healthy infusion of men into our normally predominantly feminine crowd.  Photos have already been posted on Facebook, so check it out. (New Year’s Resolution #2 – like Fort Worth Republican Women on Facebook!)

Mayor Betsy Price shared with us some important developments in our community, but perhaps most important for our group is that she reiterated the importance of volunteer activities. She encouraged each of us to let her know if we would like to volunteer to serve on committees and commissions in our city government.  So, if you are interested in a particular aspect of our city – transportation, the arts, the parks, libraries or just the city in general – and would like to participate as a volunteer to help promote or shape policy in that area, send a note or email to Betsy and let her know of your interest.

Mayor Price is always looking for a few good (wo)men to serve, and this is an excellent way to make sure our city retains its unique character and its conservative approach to problem-solving. (New Year’s Resolution #3 – become more of a community activist in 2015 by volunteering to serve!)

If you didn’t make it to the breakfast this month, our next breakfast will be on Valentine’s Day –  February 14. In the meantime, don’t forget our regular Fourth Wednesday luncheon meeting at the Fort Worth Club. Check our website next week for information about our January speaker. (New Year’s Resolution #4 – go to our website for upcoming event information. Renew your 2015 membership and pay dues online while you’re there!)

Besides our new District Attorney, the new year also brings many other newly-elected and appointed Republican officials who either already have or will take their oaths of office in January. Please join me in wishing all of them much success in their new posts!

Happy New Year again – I look forward to working with all of you in the upcoming months to sustain the Republican momentum as we address the political challenges ahead. (New Year’s Resolution #5 – start making plans today to help Republicans retake the White House in November, 2016!)

CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR PRESIDENT BONNIE SUDDERTH!

Judge Bonnie Sudderth is now Justice Bonnie Sudderth after having been appointed to the Second Court of Appeals. You can read the statement from Governor Perry’s office by clicking HERE.  Bonnie will be missed in the 352nd District Court, where she served for 18 years, but her talents will most certainly remain an asset to the State of Texas through the Second Court of Appeals.
