I am an Optimist

James DickeyThat’s why I was actually excited about moving to Austin to start the hard work of grassroots conservative activism here.

It’s why I gladly took on the tough job of growing the Republican Party in Travis county as Chairman.

It’s why I have faith that the hundreds of committed volunteers and staff in the Travis County Republican Party will continue to fight for a better Travis county every day regardless of who holds the Chairman position.

It’s why I can hope that the same press that ignored every opportunity to inform Republican voters when there was time to do so will learn from this experience.

It’s why I still hold out hope that Mr. Morrow – contrary to his own statements so far – will recognize that his duty to the neighbors who voted for him, and who are now his constituents, is more important than his fixation on faraway strangers on whom he can have no positive impact.

It’s why I can have some confidence that the thousands of hours that TCRP volunteers, staff and I expended to grow the party – reaching out and attracting more young people, minorities and those from across the Republican political spectrum – will not have been entirely made moot by the rash actions and statements of any one person.

And it’s why I’m sure that while my time in an official capacity with the TCRP will soon come to an end, I will find another way to serve my friends, neighbors and fellow Texans.

I look forward to that, and I’m grateful for all the amazing support and affirmation I’ve received over the past week.

My sincere thanks,
James R. Dickey

Email ImageThe most powerful campaign message in the world is one that comes not from a mailer or a TV ad, but from a personal recommendation from a friend. If you have friends who are voters in Travis county, please talk with them about your thoughts on the County GOP Chairman race.

One of the easiest ways to do that is to email them something like the following:

Election Day is March 1 here in Texas, and early voting has already started.

With all of the attention on the Presidential race, I want to be sure you know about a much lesser known but very important race – the race for County Chairman of the Travis County Republican Party.

I am proud to support James Dickey in this race, and ask that you do the same. James has done a great job over the last two years growing the party’s visibility, reputation and base. He’s made sure the party operates efficiently and fairly and as a result we now have more elected officials in the county.

You can learn more about James, see his endorsements and learn how to help in his race at jamesrdickey.com

Of course use your own words and add whatever details resonate most with you, but we know it can be much easier to have a strong starting point, and hope this helps!

Please let us know if you recommend changes to this suggested wording that would make it even more effective.
