Chairman Dickey Update – 4.16.2018

Chairman Dickey Update – 4.16.2018

Dear Texas Republicans,

It’s been a week full of action, as you’ll see below. I’ve visited with Republicans from Austin to El Paso, our field team participated in a national day of action and logged over 12,000 door knocks, and we are preparing to open convention registration to all delegates, alternates, and guests this Wednesday.

This coming week is also one that I hope will be full of action — actions of service and care in our communities. Today kicks off the RPTServes week of action and I encourage you to participate. Look through our list of events to see what you can join in your area. If there’s nothing yet listed, you can volunteer to lead a project. Let’s all be particularly mindful of ways we can give back to our communities and serve the hurting this week!

People & Places

Since last week’s update focused on the SREC meeting, I have a lot to report regarding my activities in the past couple of weeks!

As I hope you’ve seen, our Senator Ted Cruz has been kicking off his re-election campaign with a series of events all across Texas! I was glad to join him in Austin for one of these events and am am thrilled at the great response he’s receiving. I, too, am eager to send him back to DC to represent us because of the strong stands he’s made for our principles of limited government and personal responsibility. I was fortunate at his event to see him and also both Rep. Tony Dale and Jan Duncan SD-14 (pictured).

Our annual Spring Legislative Dinner was a huge success, thanks to the efforts of many!  I appreciate all of our statewide elected officials who were able to attend and address the crowd — Governor Abbott, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, Attorney General Ken Paxton, and Commissioners Wayne Christian, Christi Craddick, Sid Miller, and Ryan Sitton. I especially appreciate the kind remarks of Governor Abbott in praising the great work that the Party has done in raising money, advancing conservative policy, and electing Republicans.

Last week I spent a couple of days in El Paso, where County Chair Adolpho Telles graciously hosted a well-attended event along with SREC members Lisa Sprinkle and Mark Dunham (SD-29) that included the El Paso County Executive Committee, the West El Paso Republican Women’s Group, the Greater El Paso Women’s Group, and the UTEP College Republicans. We also held a press conference where I was joined by Adryana Aldeen to communicate particularly to the Hispanic community the value of Republican principles. I’ve visited Juarez, Laredo, Nogales and Tijuana many times over the last 40 years and I’m heartbroken at the shocking difference I see between Texas’ and Mexico’s border areas today. It is crystal clear how much better life is for everyone on this side of the border thanks to the implementation of our conservative principles.

Last weekend provided the opportunity to join several of our close partners at their events. I attended the Travis County GOP Reagan Dinner, where I saw Congressman Lamar Smith, Governor Greg Abbott, Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller, Supreme Court Justices Jimmy Blacklock, John Devine and Phil Johnson, Senators Dawn Buckingham and Donna Campbell, Representative Paul Workman, Jack Barcroft SD-24, County Commissioner Gerald Daugherty, County Chair Matt Mackowiak and Jan Duncan SD-14 (pictured).

On Saturday I spoke at the Texas Federation of College Republicans’ Convention and had lunch with the board of the Texas Federation of Republican Women at their quarterly meeting in Austin. I’d like to give a special shoutout to our hard working college students who fight back against the liberal worldview so prevalent in higher education. They’re an important part of our present as well as the future of our Party; let’s do all we can to encourage them.

Report from the Field

Last Saturday, April 14, was declared a National Day of Action by the Republican National Committee toward efforts for Victory 2018, and our field team delivered. Working in tandem with Governor Abbott’s field team, on that one day alone they knocked on 12,087 doors statewide and trained over 288 new volunteers. I’m so grateful for their long hours of preparation in order to achieve these results.

I hope you’re as proud as I am of the field team’s heroic efforts and I’m confident there will be a huge return on their investment. The volunteers that they brought in and the exposure that their work is gaining — all of that will most certainly pay off to help us accomplish even more in the months to come.

Join me in giving them a hand for everything they do to make the Republican Party of Texas a success and to ensure that we win our all-important general election victories this November! Follow them on Twitter so you can see their work:

Chairman Dickey’s Update – 4.10.2018

Chairman Dickey’s Update – 4.10.2018

Dear Texas Republicans,

Last weekend, your State Republican Executive Committee (SREC) gathered in Austin for the final time this term. The SREC consists of two members (male and female) from each of the 31 Senatorial Districts, plus the State Chair (myself) and Vice Chair (Amy Clark). This group is responsible for conducting the business of the Party in between conventions, and Saturday’s decisions included adoption of 3 resolutions, passage of a rules amendment relating to county chair elections, and denial of a convention booth.

Since I believe it is important for you to know the business of the Party, this update is a report on last weekend’s SREC meeting. You can also view the archived stream (Part 1Part 2Part 3) or see the agenda.

Items Voted On

Several actionable items originated from committee reports. You can view the results of the six roll call votes here.

The Resolutions Committee recommended 3 resolutions to the body; all were adopted. Those three were a resolution on the right to keep and bear arms(vote of 57-0), a resolution supporting the electoral college (vote of 59-0), and a resolution calling on recently convicted Democrat Senator Carlos Uresti to resign (adopted by unanimous consent).

The Rules Committee recommended a standing rule and an amendment to Rule 8A, both of which were adopted after debate and an amendment. The standing rule, which affirms that RPT staff and resources can be used to support identifiable Republicans running against Democrats in municipal elections, states:

The staff and resources of the Republican Party of Texas may be made available to support the campaign efforts of Republican nominees in any way that is not in conflict with RPT Rules or SREC Bylaws. These resources may be made available in the same way to support the campaigns of Republican candidates in non-contested primaries and identifiable Republican candidates in non-partisan races where authorized by resolution of the SREC.

Rule 8A was amended to include smaller counties as follows:

Special Items

I was thrilled that former State Chair Steve Munisteri was able to visit on Saturday. He has been working hard in D.C. in his role with the White House but it was great to see him here in Texas. He spoke of his excitement about what we’re doing, and I was able to talk about the Steve Munisteri Award instituted by Governor Abbott in 2014. Munisteri himself was the first recipient; it took us 4 years to find another worthy recipient, but we finally found her, and last Thursday Governor Abbott presented the 2018 Steve Munisteri Award to our outgoing Vice Chairman Amy Clark.

Vice Chairman Clark was also presented with a couple of special gifts on Saturday.  Jason Vaughn, liaison for our auxiliary organization the Texas Young Republican Federation, honored her with a glass-etched white rose and the inscription: “I will cling to the rope God has thrown me in Jesus Christ, even when my numb hands can no longer feel it.” Tanya Robertson (SD-11) gave her a collection of notes from all the SREC members recollecting their best memories and recording their appreciation.

Emma McIlheran, liaison for our auxiliary organization the College Republicans, presented a report on the Texas Federation of College Republicans State Convention that will be held in Austin this weekend. We’re proud of these young people’s hard work and excitement for advancing Republican principles. We also heard an update from our Auxiliaries & Coalitions committee chair on our coalition organization the Republican Liberty Caucus; at their recent convention they passed strong conservative planks including ones on pro-life stances.

The Candidate Resource Committee auctioned off two pieces of art (brought by Sue Evenwel, SD-1) and a pan of Vice-Chair Clark’s famous brownies to raise funds that will be passed on to our candidates. I was proud to secure the brownies at a steal for $500. The portrait of Reagan received a winning bid of $1,000 by our National Committeewoman Toni Anne Dashiell. And the remaining painting, “Those Damn Boots,” was won by Mark Ramsey (SD-7) for $375.

Field Team Report

It was wonderful to have all of our Regional Field Directors in town to present in person for the SREC members!

Kristy Wilkinson, RNC State Director / RPT Political Director gave a presentation about the data-driven work being carried out by our field team every day. She showed the members the back-end of our tracking system where we can follow our team’s progress as they knock on doors, hold 1-on-1 meetings, present RLI trainings, and more. She also reiterated the importance of our Party leaders, starting with SREC members, in helping the field team to make connections in the community and asked them to devote some of their own time and energy to blockwalking in their own areas.

Then each Regional Field Director was introduced and had a chance to speak about their work. Jesse Grady drove up from Corpus Christi; Joel James came down from DFW; Mark Irey joined us from Houston; and Rommel Lopez came from the southwest Texas region that includes Bexar, Uvalde, and Val Verde counties. Huge thank you to the team for making the effort to come and share about the blood, sweat, and tears that they are already investing in the field to help Texas win in 2018!

Officers’ Reports

Our Treasurer Larry Hicks reported on the financial status of the Party. As of last Thursday, our cash on hand was over $548,000 – 12% higher than it was at this time two years ago. We also heard a report from the audit committee: the normal yearly audit is complete, and it was a clean audit with no issues. Many thanks to our accountants (Jennifer Stoner and John Alvey) for their hard work to ensure this result.

Our Legal Counsel Chris Gober reported that the Party is not engaged in any lawsuits or ongoing legal activity at this time. He gave insight on the challenges presented by the surprise resignation of Rep. Farenthold and noted that we have been and will continue to work closely with the Governor’s office on the details as decisions are made.

National Committeewoman Toni Anne Dashiell also spoke of RNC fundraising and reported on her work with the Presidential Nominating Process committee, which is currently discussing RNC rules and will report to the Rules committee. She is eager to ensure that NY and CA, with their huge population centers and heavily Democratic strongholds, don’t end up deciding our 2024 Presidential election. She also announced that the next RNC meetings will be in Miami, FL (May 2-5) and then right here in Austin, TX (July 17-21). If you want to be a guest, just ask Toni Anne, Robin, or me and we’ll be happy to sign your guest form, which will be available on our Facebook event pages for each meeting.

National Committeeman Robin Armstrong reported on the Democrats’ efforts to gain control of Congress; they need 24 seats to do so and have targeted 101 seats. He stated that this midterm election will be the most expensive midterm in US history, but thankfully RNC Chairwoman McDaniel has already set fundraising records and is using those funds on field operations, communications, research supporting the White House, and digital operations.

Vice Chair Amy Clark gave her final presentation as our Vice Chair and shared about the exciting projects planned across Texas for RPTServes week of action, with service events currently planned in Corpus, Dallas, El Paso, Floresville, Houston, McAllen, San Antonio, and Tyler. If you’d like to participate in those or if you’d like to volunteer to coordinate a project in your own area, please CLICK HERE for more info! Amy also shared from her heart her desire and request that we would all exercise mutual respect for each other as we discuss the things about which we are so passionate.

My report as State Chair focused on some important numbers. Those included 1,543,725 — the record-breaking Republican primary turnout; $1.1 million — the amount we’ve raised for operating expenses in the past 10 months; 150 — we’re celebrating the 150th anniversary of RPT and we have so much to be proud of; 14 — the number of paid, full-time RPT staff who run our operations and work in the field throughout Texas; and 1 — the most important number: you, each of our hard-working volunteers who make the Party a success.

Additional Committee Reports

In addition to the committees who originated actionable items (see above), the following committees also brought reports of their activity:

  • Officials Committee: they voted on Friday against approving the booth application from the Log Cabin Republicans for the State Convention. In accordance with the booth policy passed by the SREC in December, that issue was brought before the entire body on Saturday. After considerable debate, the SREC voted (via voice) against approving the booth, allow staff’s decision to deny it to stand.

  • Candidate Resource Committee: they’re putting together online application forms for candidates to request funds to help with their campaigns. When ready, the links will be posted at www.texasgop.org/crc

  • Party Organization: they’re wrapping up work on manuals for candidates, precinct chairs, and county chairs, and are beginning work on an info sheet to help people start their own Republican Clubs

  • Legislative Affairs: they visited with Chairman Phil King to discuss improvements for moving priorities in upcoming sessions; they also heard a report from the Convention of the States group who successfully implemented volunteer efforts to pass their legislative priority.

  • Election Integrity: they’re working on a manual to help county chairs ensure election integrity in the elections they run

  • New Leaders on the Rise: they’ve worked this term on reaching out in rural counties and providing support to new county chairs who want to engage in their communities

  • Grassroots Club: GRC membership is currently over 1200 as we head into convention

  • Convention Arrangements: they’re working very hard on convention preparation, including on getting ready for the release of the registration link including hotel reservations for convention. They encouraged everyone not to worry about hotel rooms; we have the largest blocks we’ve ever had at 3 hotels, with additional deals made with another 6 area hotels who will provide discounts. The registration link HAS NOT BEEN RELEASED YET, so don’t worry, you haven’t missed it!

  • Advancement: they are putting together an application for speakers to join a Speakers’ Bureau and talk about Republican principles in various areas of Texas. They also successfully completed the Delegate Packet for convention-goers.

  • Site Selection: they are waiting to be able to receive information from prospective host cities for the 2022 convention.

Special thanks to Chairman Todd Hunter for being our Bronze Level Sponsor for this meeting! Chairman Hunter, we appreciate your generosity to help defray our meeting expenses and hold a successful and productive meeting.

I hope you found this SREC update helpful. We have one more meeting with this SREC at the State Convention. After that, the next SREC will be elected by the State Convention delegates and will hold their organizational meeting after the convention adjourns.

Sincerely,

James Dickey

Chairman Dickey’s Update – 4.3.2018

Dear Texas Republicans,

Last weekend many celebrated Passover — a giving of thanks for freedom from slavery and years of bondage in Egypt. Many celebrated Easter — a special day to celebrate Christ’s resurrection and our hope for man’s salvation. I hope that you enjoyed a blessed time with your loved ones as I did with my wife and children. And I pray that we take an attitude of thanksgiving with us as a lifestyle, as RPT Chaplain Corey Tabor encouraged in his Easter message.

People & Places

I was so happy to be a guest at the Texas Conservative Coalition Research Institute’s policy lunch last week, where I visited with the guest of honor, our Senator John Cornyn. In his address, Senator Cornyn spoke of the recently-passed Congressional tax reform bill and how it helps Texans. We also heard from Lt. Governor Dan Patrick, Commissioner Christi Craddick, State Senators Lois Kolkhorst, Kelly Hancock, and Larry Taylor, and State Representatives James Frank and Ron Simmons. Special congratulations to new TCCRI president Rep. Jason Isaac!

I’ve had the opportunity to interact with many of our elected officials and their staff recently in preparation for our convention. I’m delighted to see their participation in many important ways and look forward to all of our delegates hearing from them in San Antonio this June.

Our Grassroots Club members had the opportunity to hear a private conversation with Lt. Governor Dan Patrick last night. Special thanks to him for giving his time to share his thoughts and answer our questions. I could not agree with him more that, although Texas had a very strong showing in the primary election, we are seeing the other side mobilize in ways like never before and we all need to be working now in order to ensure that Republicans have an even stronger turnout in November.

Report from the Field

Harris County Regional Field Director Mark Irey joined Ted Cruz and his team for a campaign kickoff event in Houston. To stay up to date on Senator Cruz’s reelection campaign, download the Cruz Crew app.

Data Director Spencer Davis joined Regional Field Director Rommel Lopez in the field in Uvalde County for an event along with County Chairman Jeff Santleben. Rommel also held another RLI in South Bexar County and engaged with the community of Sabinal during the Wild Hog Festival. He’s working hard to promote shared conservative values on topics such as the 2nd amendment and pro-life issues.

Chairman Dickey’s Update – 3.27.2018

Dear Texas Republicans,

Thank you to everyone who attended a county/SD convention, and congratulations to all who were elected as delegates to the State Convention! I look forward to seeing you in San Antonio June 11-16. It is your collective voice that sets our Party’s vision for the next two years, and I am grateful for your dedication in walking through the convention process so your input is heard.

People & Places

Last week afforded the opportunity to see many Republicans from various areas of Texas, and I was excited and energized to visit with many groups.

I spent a couple of days in the Permian Basin. In Midland I spoke to a group at the Haley Memorial Library, which was built to house the original Alamo bell. In Odessa I addressed the Ector County Republican Women’s Club, one of the largest Republican Women’s clubs in Texas. I was also able to meet with Representatives Craddick and Landgraf and some of our Party’s great supporters while in the region.

My next stop was Houston. While there, I attended the fabulous Harris County Lincoln-Reagan Dinner and saw an incredible number of our Republican elected officials from the Houston area and beyond. The following day I hit the sidewalk to do some blockwalking with our Regional Field Director Mark Irey and new Field Organizer Matt Desguin. Finding out where voters stand and the issues most important to them is always a pleasure.

On Saturday, I had the privilege of visiting many County/SD conventions in the greater Harris County area. It was a wonderful reminder of the strength we gain from being one of the only truly grassroots-run state parties in the nation, and I was proud to meet so many wonderful Texans who care enough to dedicate their time toward shaping and growing the party. I saw many of our hard-working SREC members and county chairs, including Chris McDonald (SD-6), Mark Ramsey (SD-7), Gail Stanart (SD-15), Marvin Clede (SD-17), Fort Bend County Chairman Jacey Jetton, Harris County Chairman Paul Simpson, and others. At the SD7 convention, I presented the Candidate Resource Committee award to Senator Paul Bettencourt for his participation as a Platinum Sponsor for CRC. Thank you, Senator Bettencourt!

Sunday brought the unique privilege of participation in a Day of Unity with the High School Republicans in conjunction with the High School Democrats. The project was a brainchild of Adam Hoffman, President of the High School Republicans — which is one of our auxiliary organizations — and I was extremely proud of his hard work in orchestrating such a well-run event. While there I got to meet RPT field intern Ashish Dave and had many other great young conservatives express a strong desire in becoming more involved with the Party.

Senator Ted Cruz delivered the opening presentation, and then I spoke during two sessions. I’m grateful that our principles provided such a compelling message that even some of the High School Democrats approached me afterward with favorable remarks toward what I showed them of the Republican Party.

Report from the Field

Rommel Lopez and his team continue to grow and reach new voters in Maverick County. Because of his ties to the community, Rommel was invited to participate in the 3-day Noches Mexicanas festival in Eagle Pass. The event allowed Rommel to meet voters and talk about issues important to them including life. Way to go Rommel!

Mark Irey and new field organizer Matt Desguin were thrilled to have Chairman James Dickey to help canvas and discuss the importance of the November election with Houstonians.

A number of our field staffers participated at the local party conventions. Joel James, Jesse Grady, and Cassie Luevano were all able to pitch the training and volunteer opportunities available for all activists and activists-to-be.

Would you like to get trained on Advantage Mobile? Or meet voters while door knocking? Don’t hesitate to reach out to our field team!

Party News

Last week’s major event was the county/SD conventions held throughout Texas on Saturday. These conventions are the second tier of our convention process in which Republican voters decide on the Party’s platform, rules, priorities, and leadership for the following two years. Now that the county/SD conventions are over, the delegates to state convention have been elected and we can begin preparing for the third and final tier: the State Convention in San Antonio June 11-16!

You can find a great deal of information about the convention on our website, including the basic schedule, the line-up of special events, how to volunteer, how to apply for an exhibit booth or become a sponsor, and more. See all of that right here.

VERY IMPORTANT: If you are a delegate or an alternate, you will receive several emails over the next month with important information about convention,  including hotel reservations. The convention hotels will be released to all delegates, alternates and guests after we receive all the necessary information from the County and a senate district conventions — look for that email in mid April. Grassroots Club members get a head start — rooms will be released to GRC members 48 hrs in advance. You can join the Grassroots Club at www.grassrootsclub.com.

If you were the permanent chair of your convention, please be sure to submit all of your convention documents no later than Thursday, March 29. You can find sample forms on our County/SD convention page. Please email them to forms@texasgop.org

The next major Party event will be the 2nd Quarterly State Republican Executive Committee meeting April 6-7. The call has been sent out to SREC members along with an agenda and schedule of committee meetings. You may view that here. We welcome all Texas Republicans to join us in person or via our livestream.

Dear Texas Republicans,

This Saturday, grassroots Republicans all over Texas will gather in their home counties to adopt resolutions for our platform, priorities, and rules and to elect delegates to the State Convention. I hope that you are a part of this process! If you have not yet become involved with the convention process, it’s not too late to get started. Please see the “Party News” section for details.

People & Places

I had the pleasure of meeting with the Texas Federation of Republican Outreach (TFRO) Chairman Bill Calhoun, Vice Chairman Gene Pack and Executive Director Mona Lisa Chambers. Without a doubt the highlight of the meeting was welcoming party switcher and Waller County Commissioner for Precinct 3 Jeron Barnett to the Republican Party of Texas. Commissioner Barnett’s story of coming to realize that being a member of the Republican Party was key to his ability to provide better opportunities and leadership for his community and constituents was encouraging and enlightening. I thank TFRO for all their efforts and accomplishments over the past 25 years and look forward to seeing Commissioner Barnett again soon.

Orange county held their first-ever Reagan Gala this year – an incredible sign of just how far they’ve come and how much their spirit could not be broken in spite of the devastation of Hurricane Harvey just six months ago. I was honored to join Governor Greg Abbott, Senator Robert Nichols, Representative Dade Phelan, SREC Committee members Judy Parada and Terry Holcomb, and numerous current and former county chairs to celebrate their tremendous accomplishments over this time. My congratulations to Orange County Chair David Covey and appreciation to him for the invitation and for his leadership in Southeast Texas.

Report from the Field

Mark Irey, Harris County Regional Field Director, reports that a brand new group of Republican Leadership Engagement fellows from Pearland have been trained up and are ready to hit the ground for the 2018 general election!

Matt Desguin, a native Houstonian, has joined the field team to work closely with Mark. Matt previously worked for the RPT during the 2016 Victory program. He is a proud graduate of the University of Houston and we are excited to have him on board.

Rommel Lopez, CD-23 Regional Field Director, led at a house party with conservative leaders in Eagle Pass to help grow our conservative base, and conducted an RLI training in Bexar County.

Joel James, DFW Regional Field Director, participated in the County Council of Republican Women and the Irving Republican Women’s Club meetings, updating them on field work in the area and helping them to use the Advantage walk app.

We’ve hired an additional staff member to help Joel in the metroplex. Matt Dunn is finishing up his studies at Dallas Baptist University where he is on the lacrosse team. For the last several months he worked closely with Joel as a Republican Leadership Initiative fellow, focusing on voter contact and recruitment. welcome to the team!

Party News

As always, the RPT headquarters is buzzing with activity as we wrap up primary election results, provide delegate training, walk county chairs through preparation for the county/SD conventions, and prepare for our upcoming SREC meeting! Here are some notes and resources:

  • Our Canvass of Primary Election was held yesterday (Sunday, March 18). This means that the Republican Party primary election results all over the state have now been officially certified.

  • All of the county/SD conventions will be held this Saturday, March 24 at a time and place chosen by the counties. For more information, including a comprehensive 18-minute training video, click here.

  • Some counties have not yet held their precinct conventions (those may be scheduled March 6-24). For extensive training materials on precinct conventions, click here.

  • Our 2nd Quarterly SREC meeting of 2018 will be held April 7, with committee meetings on April 6, at the Wyndham Garden Austin. The official call including agenda and committee meeting schedule will be sent within the next week.

In addition to being a delegate to conventions, another way you can participate is to serve on a committee. The temporary committee members for the county/SD conventions are selected by the temporary convention chair; many have already been selected but you can still reach out and let them know if you’re interested in serving. The temporary committee members for the state convention will be nominated by the SREC members shortly after the March 24th conventions. If you’re interested in serving on temporary committees in San Antonio June 11-13, please reach out to your SREC members and let them know! The State Convention will have temporary committees on Credentials, Organization, Rules, Legislative Priorities, and Platform & Resolutions.

We’ve had many people ask if it’s possible to be a delegate to state convention even if they missed their lower-level conventions. The answer is YES! Here’s the explanation:

There are 3 levels of convention: precinct (meet with your neighborhood), county or SD (meet with your town), and state. To be a delegate at your precinct convention, simply show up (as long as you’re eligible: registered in your precinct and affiliated with the Party by voting or signing an oath of affiliation). To be a delegate at your county or SD convention, you must have been elected by your precinct convention (whether or not you were there). To be a delegate at the state convention, you must be elected by your county or SD convention (whether or not you are there, and regardless of whether or not you are a delegate).

There are several things you can do to help promote yourself to be elected as a State Convention delegate by your county or SD convention.

First, attend the Temporary Nominations Committee meetings and let the committee know that you’d like to serve as a delegate. They may ask you questions and/or ask you to fill out an application form to learn more about you. The committee will meet after the precinct convention but before the county/SD convention starts. Many are holding meetings this week; some will hold meetings Saturday right before the convention. If your county party has a website, the committee meetings must be posted there at least a day in advance. Every delegate to that convention has the right to observe, testify, and record committee meetings.

Second, especially if you missed the Temporary meeting, attend the Permanent Nominations Committee meeting on March 24th during the County/SD convention and let them know you’d like to serve as a State Convention delegate. This committee receives a report from the Temporary committee and then gives the full convention a recommendation of who should represent them at state convention.

Third, if your name doesn’t end up on the report from the Permanent Nominations Committee, any delegate at the county/SD committee can make a motion to add your name to the list (if it’s full, they’ll need to make a motion to strike someone in order to add you). If you’re a delegate at county/SD, you can make this motion yourself. If the delegate list is full, you can be added to the alternate list. Don’t worry if you’re “only an alternate” — most likely, you will still get seated and be able to participate in important votes at State Convention.

Chairman Dickey Update – 3.12.2018

Chairman Dickey Update – 3.12.2018

Dear Texas Republicans,

Thanks to you, Republicans scored a record midterm turnout at the polls last week. Congratulations to all of our primary election winners!

While there are still some races that will be decided during the runoff election, I am asking that all Texas Republicans join me in supporting the Republican Ticket in 2018.  As a party we must foster unity, heal division, and move forward to focus on our goal of electing Republicans in races up and down the ballot.

Our elections are crucial to deciding the future of our state and our nation, and I am proud of the primary election turnout. But our work has just begun. We must bind together and fight for our candidates with our party’s message of limited government and economic prosperity. With your help, we can continue winning in 2018.

People & Places

Recently, I addressed the Montgomery County Eagle Forum via videoconference. We had a great Q&A session and I love that our technology allowed us to interact virtually! It was great to see SREC member Judy Parada (SD-3) in the audience.

Collin County holds its precinct conventions all in the same location, and I was happy to address all the precinct delegates before they began their individual conventions. I thanked them for being a part of the convention process because strong grassroots input is vital to our grassroots-led party.

I’d like to give a shoutout to county chairs who — in addition to all of their primary election and convention responsibilities — have been conducting successful Lincoln/Reagan Dinners all over the state. Special praise goes to those who are holding their counties’ first-ever Reagan Dinner this year — such as Washington County Chair Sandie Kindt (pictured with SREC member Tanya Robertson, SD-11).

Report from the Field

Our field team is thrilled to have a strong slate of candidates to support! They’ve already built up networks of volunteers in their areas and are now utilizing their teams to increase excitement for individual candidates.

Last week regional field directors had the option of holding election watch parties to monitor results as they came in. They also conducted Republican Leadership Initiatives and house parties in Bexar County and Harris County.

In the coming weeks, they’ll focus on reaching voters in unique venues including career and professional development fairs, community events, and local activities.

Special shoutout to our own Kristy Wilkinson who heads up our field program. Kristy was featured in an RNC video promoting the women who lead in politics. You can view it right here!

Party News

More than 1.5 million Texas Republicans let their voice be heard in this primary election.  Thank you to each and every one of you. With the election complete (except for those headed for the runoff election on May 22nd), each county will officially be announcing its results on Thursday — this is called the canvass. Our state canvass will be held Friday at 1pm in Austin.

The convention process is underway! I’m glad so many of you are participating — it’s a great way to give your input on what should be included in the party’s platform. Some counties have already held precinct conventions, but others are yet to come. They can be held March 6-24 at a time and place determined by the county executive committee.  All of the county or SD conventions will be held March 24.

Our Second Quarterly SREC meeting is also coming up soon. It will be April 6-7 at the Wyndham Garden Austin. As always, committee meetings are Friday and the full session is Saturday, and all Texas Republicans are welcome to join us in person or via the livestream.

Thank you to our 2018 State Convention Sponsors!

Chairman Dickey’s Update – 3.5.2018

Chairman Dickey’s Update – 3.5.2018

Dear Texas Republicans,

Last week in 1836, Texas declared its independence from an oppressive government. Texas will forever remember the spirit of the brave Texians who fought for liberty and freedom. We must never take for granted the sacrifice that these brave men and women made so Texas could prosper.

I hope that you and your family were able to celebrate and have a blessed Texas Independence Day.

People & Places

Normally I share about where I’ve been, but today I’d like to focus on YOU, the Republican voters, and the two important places I’d like for you to go.

First: please vote in the Republican primary election. It is critical to our party’s success that you help us turn out the vote right now. We need your voice to select our Republican nominees and we want to hear your opinion on important issues, but just as important, we must together show a strong and engaged force of Republicans who are ready to fight for our Texas way of life. So please vote and bring your friends and neighbors with you.

See when and where you can vote on Election Day — Tuesday, March 6.

Second: please participate in your precinct convention. It’s a short meeting in your neighborhood; depending on your county, it could be Tuesday night March 6, or Saturday morning March 24, or sometime in between. Please take with you at least one resolution — a statement of what you’d like the party to do. This can be a proposed platform plank, legislative priority, or party rule (click here to see a sample resolution — but remember, there’s no required format or wording). Also be sure to elect delegates — perhaps including yourself — to take your ideas on to the next level convention.

Contact your county party to find out when and where your precinct convention will be held.

Learn more about precinct conventions. Questions? Email delegates@texasgop.org

Report from the Field

The field team had another successful week of training volunteers and building neighborhood teams to reach voters. Tomorrow’s primary election means that we will have many Republican candidates selected and ready to support for the general election. Regional Field Directors in CD-23, Corpus Christi, Dallas/Fort Worth, and  Houston are unifying volunteers and leveraging  volunteer networks to support all candidates and campaigns.

The beginning of March means new opportunities to recruit and train volunteers. We have upcoming Republican Leadership Initiative trainings in Baytown, Pearland, Calhoun County, Victoria County, Denton County, and Dallas County. Additionally, the field team is eager to engage university students and young professionals with a variety of internships and volunteer opportunities. Don’t hesitate to connect us with young Republicans looking to be active in 2018.

Stephen Wong has now transitioned to a new role and is the Deputy State Director, a position that will continue his work with the field team and RNC State Director Kristy Wilkinson. He can still be reached at his RPT email (swong@texasgop.org)

Weekly Chairman’s Report (Nov 27 – Dec 4)

Weekly Chairman’s Report (Nov 27 – Dec 4)

December 4, 2017

Dear Texas Republicans,

This week was a flurry of activity, beginning with Governor Abbott visiting our offices and concluding with our quarterly State Republican Executive Committee meeting on Saturday. A full report on Saturday’s SREC meeting is included below.

People & Places

Governor Greg Abbott used Republican Party of Texas headquarters for a press conference Monday afternoon. Governor Abbott announced Jimmy Blacklock will be nominated to replace Justice Don Willett on the Texas Supreme Court. Justice Willett is nominated to become a member of the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals and is expected to be confirmed by the Senate in the coming weeks.

On Friday, Governor Abbott hosted RPT staff, SREC, and other RPT leaders at the Governor’s Mansion for the annual Christmas party.

 

Report from the Field

The field team was back for its first full week following the Thanksgiving holiday, and didn’t miss a beat getting back to business. Our Regional Field Directors conducted 41 meetings with new and already active volunteers to expand their team heading into 2018; gathered 200 petition signatures; held 2 house meetings; and knocked on 900 doors. This hard work now will set us up for success when we drastically increase goals in the new year.

Party News

At this past weekend’s quarterly meeting, the State Republican Executive Committee accomplished several critical items of business. Perhaps the most anticipated agenda item was the wording for ballot propositions that will be on your Republican Primary ballot this coming March. State law gives the SREC sole authority to develop these, and we selected a record-breaking 11 items to include this time – view them here. These are non-binding ballot initiatives that gain valuable data on the position of primary voters on high profile issues.

The SREC also considered a resolution to censure State Representative Byron Cook under Rule 44 in the RPT Rules. It received 35 votes in favor and 16 against, falling short of the 43 votes required to meet the “two-thirds of the full SREC membership” threshold and trigger the application of the penalties in the Rule.

The body formally accepted the state convention delegate strength (view the number of delegate slots assigned to your county or Senate District) and set the State Convention start time for 10am on Thursday, June 14, 2018. Mark your calendars today, and plan to be at your precinct convention in March so you can have a shot at one of those state convention delegate slots!

Our treasurer Larry Hicks reported on our financial standing, after which the SREC approved the 2018 Budget that the Officials Committee has been developing. In November we received more large dollar donations than any other month since July of 2016 and we had the highest total donations received since October of 2014. This is an encouraging trend that I look forward to continuing.

I was honored to appoint two new attorneys to the position of Assistant General Counsel: Wade Emmert is a former Dallas County Chairman and Ross Fischer works with General Counsel Chris Gober as a part of the Gober Group. We are extremely blessed to have the volunteer support of these highly qualified individuals and I’m thankful for their willingness to serve.

Very exciting to me was our ability for the first time in SREC history to use electronic voting.  Since a roll call vote is required for each resolution — and roll call votes are often needed or requested other times as well — this saved us an enormous amount of time and allowed us to spend our precious minutes completing actual business.

A final highlight was the SREC’s approval of a standing rule that “Staff and guests may photograph, record, and/or stream the proceedings of any meeting of the SREC or its committees or subcommittees not held in executive session.” As someone who began using facebook live to stream political meetings starting the week it was released, and having counted on many guest livestreams in order to follow important proceedings, I could not be happier with this decision. I highly encourage you to make good use of it!

I’d like to personally thank any of you who attended the meeting as a guest, watched the livestream, or spoke with your SREC members about your preferences. This type of communication with your representatives on the SREC helps ensure that you are well-informed on their decisions as they fulfill their role of running the party between conventions. Remember, this SREC term includes two more meetings (Jan. 26-27, 2018 and April 6-7, 2018), so there is still ample opportunity to get to know your current SREC representation. Find their contact information here.

I’d also like to thank our generous meeting sponsors, Rick Green of Patriot Academy (pictured), Chad Wilbanks, Prestige Oysters, and Calpine Energy. I encourage you to join me in expressing appreciation to them and their companies for their support.

If you missed the meeting, you can review it on our archived livestream on YouTube.

Weekly Chairman’s Report (Nov 20 – Nov 27)

Weekly Chairman’s Report (Nov 20 – Nov 27)

Dear Texas Republican,

As I reflect on this season of giving thanks, there is much to be grateful for, but I am especially grateful to serve as your Chairman of the Republican Party of Texas.

As Chairman, I have had the opportunity to meet thousands of hard-working Republicans who dedicate their time and passion to the Republican Party of Texas, and it has been the highlight of serving thus far. County Chairs, Precinct Chairs, State Republican Executive Committee members, and the faithful grassroots are selflessly working to improve the Party and fight for the the ideals we all believe in: expansion of opportunity and protection of freedom. I am thankful to be able to serve alongside our incredible volunteers and staff as we work toward such worthwhile goals.

Immediately after the tragedy of Hurricane Harvey, I had the opportunity to see the generous heart of so many RPT officials, staff, affiliates, and volunteers. Our community rallied to the aid of cities like Rockport, Houston, Rose City, and the surrounding areas that were devastated by Hurricane Harvey. Recovery continues––and will continue for years to come––and I am thankful to know that together we can and will rebuild.

With many of Texas’ Republican economic policies making this state a great friend to businesses in our nation, I have had the opportunity to grow my small business, employ great people, provide for my family, and dedicate a great portion of my time to the Party. I am thankful to see Texas prospering amidst unique challenges and spurring economic growth that causes tens of thousands to move to this state every year.

Here at the Republican Party of Texas, we have an extra reason to be thankful this season. A generous donor has agreed to match every donation dollar-for-dollar until the end of this month. I ask that you take advantage of this opportunity to double your donation as these final weeks of fundraising are crucial. We must be ready to take on the 2018 election cycle.

The Republican Party of Texas would not be as strong as it is without you. We need your support, and we deeply appreciate it. Thank you for allowing me the greatest opportunity– to serve as your Chairman. May God bless you and your family.  

With my sincere gratitude,


 

 

 

James Dickey

Weekly Chairman’s Report (Nov 13-Nov 19)

Weekly Chairman’s Report (Nov 13-Nov 19)

November 19, 2017

Dear Texas Republicans,

 

Last Friday I sent notice for our 4th quarterly SREC meeting, and I hope that you will join us December 1-2 — either online via our livestream or in person at the Wyndham Garden Austin!

 

If you were a delegate to convention, you helped elect 2 members from your district to the SREC — the State Republican Executive Committee — to run the Republican Party of Texas. The SREC holds quarterly meetings to conduct party business. You are invited to observe as a guest or watch the livestream.

 

This is a chance for you to connect with the people you elected, see what decisions are being made, and give input. On Friday you can watch committee meetings, and on Saturday listen to the reports, votes, new business, and more. Join the facebook event page to view the agenda and receive updates.

People & Places

I was in Ft. Worth Sunday night for a dinner put on by local grassroots volunteers. The event was attended by over 60 people and gave me the opportunity to share my vision for the Republican party and give a status update on candidate recruitment and filing. We’ve had over 150 candidates file for a place on the Republican ballot at headquarters, not to mention the hundreds more who have filed at the county party level. I am excited for our party and the impact we will make in the 2018 elections!

Saturday morning, I spoke with Republican Women of Arlington. I gave them an update on what our political team is doing out in the field and our status with candidates who filed to run for office thus far. On Wednesday, I gathered with small group of people who were kind enough to host a fundraiser for the RPT.  I am grateful to those who attended and like what the Party is doing so much that they responded with extremely generous support.

Report from the Field

 

I joined our Deputy Political Director Stephen Wong and Dallas Regional Field Director Joel James at a Dallas County Precinct Chair training on Saturday as we continue our focus on statewide recruitment and training. In Dallas, the RPT trained precinct chairs and prospective precinct chairs with the local party and Texans for Greg Abbott field staff. Over 40 activists learned about the Neighborhood Team model and the tools available to all activists and precinct chairs to reach their neighbors, develop volunteers, understand data and get out the vote.

 

 

Stephen Wong lead a breakout session on the Republican Leadership Initiative –– a national program teaching engaged activists campaign strategies, data analysis, and grassroots volunteer engagement to help win local races. More information about this program can be found here.

 

We continue to invest in reaching young people including high schoolers, college students, and young professionals. Our team is working on a multipronged approach to reaching young Texans including growing our field internship program, partnering with College Republicans and other like-minded organizations, and doing targeted outreach on university campuses. To that end, we collect and maintain a resume bank for internships and paid opportunities on the RPT website https://www.texasgop.org/careers/  Jesse Grady, Corpus Christi Regional Field Director, set up a table at the Saxet Gun Show in Robstown, TX on Saturday and Sunday. Jesse met hundreds of volunteers, gaining 165 petition signatures for tax reform. Jesse engaged supporters, helping them to get more involved in the local party.

Party News

The first week of candidate filing at the RPT has been a very busy week.  We have received well over 100 filings this week alone.  If you would like to see a list of all the candidates who have filed with us, please visit: https://www.texasgop.org/2018-primary-candidate-filings/

 

Candidates wishing to run in the Republican Primary must file for a place on the ballot not later than 6p.m. on Monday December 11th.  Candidates wishing to run for an office which covers more than one county must file with the Republican Party of Texas.  Candidates wishing to file for an office which is fully contained within one county (including county chairs and precinct chairs) must file with their county Republican Party.  A list of the current Republican County Chairs may be found at: https://www.texasgop.org/county_chairs/
