Proud To Support Our Democratic Candidates

I'm Barbara Walters, a member of the Texas Democratic Women of Collin County; OK, I'm the President! On Monday night, July 28, our organization donated $6000 to 8 candidates.

$1,000 - Rick Noriega, candidate for US Senate
$1,000 - Tom Daley, candidate for US Congress, District 3
$1,000 - Glenn Glenn Melan├žon, candidate for US Congress, District 4
$1,000 - Jim Jordan, candidate for Texas Supreme Court Chief Justice
$500
- Susan Strawn, candidate for Court of Criminal Appeals Judge, Place 3
$500
- Don B. Chae, candidate for 5th Court of Appeals Justice, Place 3
$500
- Victor Manuel, candidate for Collin County Commissioner, Precinct 3
$500
- Eric Roberson, candidate for US Congress, District 32 (not in Collin Co.)

Our hard work over the last two years paid off. We organized, we raised money, we studied the positions of the candidates, we voted to endorse them, and then we invited them back to accept the checks! There was a full house of about 60 people and a wonderful amount of energy and excitement filled the room.

You can review responses to a position questionnaire submitted by the Texas Democratic Women of Collin County (TDWCC) to each of these candidates. Discover why the TDWCC endorses each for elected office.

We barely have time to celebrate, though, because we need to organize more, raise more money, and get out the vote to get our candidates elected in November.

The organization of Texas Democratic Women of Collin County are conducting multiple phone banks per week, voter registration drives, and having our second annual fundraiser dinner on Sept. 28. I f you want to know more, check out our website.
