SREC Member Mark Ramsey, SD 7 Endorses James Dickey for RPT Chair

Having worked closely with Chair James Dickey over the past 11 months, I enthusiastically support James Dickey for re-election as RPT Chair. James has been doing an extraordinary job. He has proven relationships on local, state, and national levels, including prior Chairs, the Governor, Legislative leaders, and the White House. His strong and effective support of our conservative grassroots-generated platform has resulted in a resurgence – to record levels – of donations to the party by conservative donors large and small. He has supported the platform at every opportunity and he has been fair and transparent in his dealings with all. James has lived and breathed grassroots politics and fought alongside us in the grassroots for over a decade. He is also a strong man of faith and prayer. I trust James Dickey to keep RPT strong and lead us in this midterm election to Keep Texas Red! Vote to Keep James Dickey RPT Chair at State Convention!”

Generation Now Endorses James Dickey for RPT Chair

To the Delegates and Alternates of the Republican Party of Texas Convention,

We the undersigned young Republican leaders are proud to personally endorse James Dickey for re-election as the Republican Party of Texas Chairman.
 
In his 10 months at the helm of the RPT, Chairman Dickey has already had extraordinary success in building relationships between young leaders and the older generations in our party.
 
When Chairman Dickey was elected, a couple of his first acts included obtaining sign language interpreters for SREC meetings and encouraging auxiliaries to participate in debate at these meetings as their ex-officio status would allow. The Texas Young Republican Federation, the Texas Federation of College Republicans, and all other auxiliaries had a real voice on the SREC and were finally allowed to use it.
 
Chairman Dickey then opened up the resources of the party to young Republican leaders when he invited the Texas Young Republicans to be partners in the Grassroots Club. They created YRGrassroots.com to bring in monthly donors and to help the party. These type of win-win scenarios have helped all of us grow.
 
Chairman Dickey has also taken the time to travel the state speaking to young Republican groups from the Valley to North Texas. He utilizes modern technology to send a video or speak via live-stream when necessary, but he consistently makes the time to actually go and see the people face-to-face. He answers their concerns and shows that he cares for them and their success in our party. Chairman Dickey understands that outreach is not just telling others what you believe, but listening.
 
However, we have come together to endorse Chairman James Dickey for re-election not solely based on any big project, but based on his heart, character, passion, and humility that shines through it all. We believe he recognizes and has acted upon the belief that our generation is not just the future of the party – we are the “Now” of the party.
 
Many of us may view ourselves in different places within the party, but we can still come together under Chairman Dickey’s leadership. Thanks to his actions, the relationship between young Republican groups and the RPT is stronger than ever.
 
For all of these reasons and more, we are proud to endorse Chairman James Dickey for re-election, and we hope you will join us in voting for him at our State Convention.
