President’s Message, October, 2014
This has been a very busy season. Campaigns are in full swing, CHRW has distributed the first PAC checks to candidates in the club history, and we have given out both the Gladys Harrington Scholarship and the Dixie Clem Scholarship. Madeleine Garrett, who is the grand-daughter of Cindy Bauge, was awarded the Gladys Harrington scholarship, and Dixie Clem’s grand-daughter, Dori Baker received the scholarship honoring her grandmother. Dori is returning to school, and Grandmother Dixie could not be prouder!
John Payton, Jodie Laubenberg, and Susan Fletcher were all able to attend the dinner meeting at The Turkish Café to accept their PAC checks. Both John and Jodie have been targeted by the Dems, so we give them our best wishes and prayers for success in addition to some much-needed funding. Check out their websites or the Victory Center to see how you can help them win in November. You can find websites for all GOP candidates at www.collincountygop.org Check out the website’s new look, and take advantage of the information available.
CHRW supported the CCGOP at the Balloon Festival on Saturday, 9/22, and we actually had the honor of registering a brand new voter! We received a lot of “thumbs up” from festival attendees.
In October, CHRW will hear from Michael Morris, Director of Transportation for the North Texas Council of Governments. Since Rep. Leach, in his presentation at the September meeting, said that transportation will be one of the top priorities of the next legislative session, please plan to attend and be informed.
Let’s keep working hard. We need to KEEP TEXAS RED!
