IMG_0571Something new to add to your calendar, the Texas Democratic Women’s Annual Retreat!  It will be held right here in Dallas.

When: Saturday, August 4, with optional activities on Friday night and Sunday.

Where: Dallas Sheraton Hotel on Olive Street in downtown Dallas.  Close to DARTrail and McKinney Ave. Trolley and all the attractions of the Arts District.

The NDTDW board is working on the content of the day-long retreat as well as the optional entertainment.  We welcome all input from our members and certainly hope that you will put this on your calendar to Save The Date.

We have participated in two different candidate forums, both highly successful.

First on January 28, we joined with the Far North Dallas Richardson Democrats to put on our 8th Biennial Democratic Primary Candidates Forum, held it at Wyndham Hotel near Coit and 635.  It was a great venue and location and we filled the room.  NDTDW was responsible for the production of a printed voter’s guide and the check-in of candidates and attendees.  If you missed it, the voter’s guide is available here and photos, here.

Next, on February the 18, NDTDW took the lead in organizing the TX 32 Democratic Forum.  We pulled together Swing Left, the Blue Wall and three of our board members and produced an outstanding forum.  All five of the candidates – Colin Allred, Ed Meier, George Rodriguez, Lillian Salerno and Brett Shipp told us they loved the format and that we asked the in depth questions that brought out the different strengths and weaknesses of the candidates.  I for one now am having a really hard time deciding who to vote for.  NDTDW produced the program for the event and live streamed it through my Facebook page. You can view it here.

Program CoverRight now – VOTE!  Early voting is happening through March 2, with the actual election day on March 6.  We really have to get the NextGen group to the polls and let them know how important it is to them personally.

And remember, it only takes one strong woman to change the course of anything.  Be that woman! Let’s turn Texas Blue and take back the Senate and the House.
