County Chair Frank Steed Resignation

March 15, 2015
Republicans of Navarro County;

After much thought, consideration and planning I have resigned as Chairman of the Republican Party of Navarro County effective March 15th, 2015. I am proud of the work that the Party has done over the past 5 ½ years. With your support we have fulfilled our goal of holding every seat in the Navarro County Courthouse and held them thru an election cycle. I have no doubt that we will do the same in 2016.

As I looked forward to the 2016 campaign I realized that if we didn’t make a change now, I would be in office for over eight years. That is too long for any one County Chairman to hold office. We need new thoughts, ideas and energy to ensure that our party base continues to grow. I believe a new Chairman can do that. I will continue to stay active both locally and at the State level. Your RPNC Executive Committee will elect a new Chairman Monday, March 30th. I look forward to working with the incoming Chairman to keep Navarro County and Texas Red.

Thank you again for your support of me and the Party.


Sincerely,
Frank

State Senator Brian Birdwell Capitol Update -- March 26, 2015

Capitol Update 3-26-15
Greetings from your Texas Capitol!

It's hard to believe, but Monday (3/23) marked the halfway point in the 84th legislative session. Committees are meeting weekly—sometimes multiple times per week—and bills are being heard and voted on daily on the Senate floor. In no time, the Senate will begin receiving bills passed in the House, and vice versa. I'll highlight the movement of a few key bills below, plus a handful of other items that I think you'll find interesting and pertinent. As always, I encourage you to follow me on Facebook and Twitter for regular updates on what's happening in your state government.

DRIVING THE DAY …

SECRETARY OF SECRECY: From the more than 31,000 deleted emails, to her State Department’s abysmal reputation for following disclosure rules and processing records requests, Hillary Clinton’s penchant for secrecy has yielded a slew of inconvenient data points.

Tom Mechler -- Chair Republican Party Of Texas

Texas GOP Welcomes Chairman Tom Mechler

March 13, 2015
On Saturday March 7th the State Republican Executive Committee elected RPT Treasurer Tom Mechler as the new Chairman of the Republican Party of Texas.

After nearly five years on the job, Chairman Munisteri earned himself a well deserved retirement. When he was elected in 2010 the party was in dire financial straits and promptly appointed Mechler as Treasurer. Five years later, not only is the party completely out of debt, but has close to $1,000,000 in the bank and has done more to reach out to communities throughout Texas than ever before.

As a member of Munisteri's leadership team, Chairman Mechler has been there every step along the way and is uniquely qualified to continue steering the ship towards our goals of advancing the technological capabilities of the party, reaching out to the next generation of Texas's Republican leaders, and putting a Republican in every elected office in the state.

State Party Chair Steve Munisteri -- Final Report

March 7, 2015
Today I will be stepping down as Chairman of the Republican Party of Texas. I will be presenting my final report to the SREC as to the status of the party. By way of this email, I am prodivding you, our grassroots supporters, a final report as well on where the party was when I was elected, where it is today, and where I hope it will go in the future. The following is a summary of what all of us together have been able to accomplish over the last five years.

Heroes Of The Party

March 6, 2015
I would like to thank the tens of thousands of volunteers and contributors whose hard work and donations have allowed the Republican Party of Texas to benefit from three consecutive, record election cycles. I also wish to take this opportunity to thank some special people that went above and beyond the call of duty to help the party and whom I consider "heroes of the party".

State Party Chair Steve Munisteri Update -- February 2015

February 28, 2015
February marked the last full month of my tenure as State Chairman, thus it was fitting that my last full month as Chairman was similar to my first few months. I spent most of the month traveling, in part as a result of local Republican clubs trying to schedule me to speak at their meetings one last time.

SD 22 Leadership Conference -- June 13 2015

State Senate District 22 Leadership Conference and Training Seminar

June 13, 2015 10:00 am to 4:00 pm
I regret that we had to cancel our Leadership Forum last Saturday February 28 with the State Chairman candidates. Tom Mechler was ice bound in Amarillo and Dallas conditions were very dicey for Wade Emmert. I did not want to chance anyone having travel issues to come in.

Please save the date of Saturday June 13, 2015, which is the rescheduled date for a Leadership Conference at Hill College. This will be an extensive seminar with break out sessions for training in various subjects.
