Changes Announced By Fort Bend County’s Democratic Party Chair-Elect

Dear Fort Bend Democrat and Friends, I would once again like to thank you for your support! I’m particularly excited about the future of the Democratic Party in Fort Bend County, and I hope that you are as well. Democrats are poised for a major breakthrough here – and its well over due! Through increased and open communication, an organizational re-structuring and a commitment to achieve the goals that we set, we will undoubtedly be the majority party sooner rather than later.

Over the next couple of weeks, before I’m sworn in this May, I’ll routinely send out Transition Updates to keep you informed of the activities that are taking place. These updates will also provide you an opportunity to get involved. Task Force Chairs I’m pleased to announce the naming of Democrats who have agreed to serve in critical transition roles. Each Task Force has been charged with identifying specific impediments to growth, making recommendations on sustaining permanent structures for each activity below, and setting short/long term goals. Join me in thanking each of them for their efforts, and please let me know if you are interested in participating on any of these Task Forces.
