Democracy on the Rise
The party of the people is returning to its roots and democracy is on the rise. All over Texas, grassroots Democrats who are fed up with one-party monopoly government are filing for local offices in supposed Republican strongholds. There are too many to list here. But just for example, seven Democrats so far are running for countywide offices in Fort Bend County; and Democrats are running for County Commissioner seats that have long been held by Republicans in Denton and Collin Counties.
If any of the election districts that you reside in, at any level of government, do not yet have a Democratic challenger to a Republican incumbent, someone needs to file to run for that seat, and that someone is you!
You do not need permission from any celebrity, superstar, or party boss. You do not need to have served in political office before or to have run for political office before. You already hold the highest civic position in a democracy, that of citizen and voter. All you need is the desire to serve your fellow citizens for a time and to make government work better for them.
You have the ability, you have the qualifications, and you care about the world you live in. Now do it!
