Monthly General Meeting – May 19, 2018
Saturday, May 19, 2018, Sun City Ballroom—Refreshments, coffee and social time at 9:30 and program at 10:00 a.m. We are extremely honored to host a congressional candidate debate between two great candidates Christine Mann and MJ Hegar who are vying to replace our long term tea party representative to Congress just two days before the runoff election. The debate will be moderated by Patrick Svitek, the primary political correspondent for The Texas Tribune. Half of the questions will be from audience submissions. Those who wish to submit a question should write it on a 5×8 card or sheet of paper and turn them in when the enter the ballroom. Please go vote in the Primary Runoff Election – May 22, 2018. Did you know voter turnout in Georgetown is extremely low and that candidates often win or loose by less than 100 votes! If the SunCityDems get out to vote for progressive candidates, we can effect real change in our city, county and congressional district! When you go vote on May 22, please invite your Democratic neighbors to go, too.
Note: We will be asking attendees to sit organized by precinct! You can find your new precinct number on your voter registration card or by going to the Wilco County Elections site and entering your address. We will have lists at the meeting but will save time by knowing your precinct number in advance. Click for voter lookup.

Member participation and involvement will be critical during this election year by providing opportunities for us to elect Democrats at the local, state and federal levels. We must maintain and grow our membership. We must harness our increased numbers with passion to assist our candidates in the many ways that make for successful campaigns — door knocking, phone-calling, donating and, of course, voting. Communication with other like-minded voters is a high priority. The website provides easy access to candidate’s campaign websites and voting information. One of the advantages of membership is the ability to participate in our groups. We now have several plus a Facebook page to keep you informed. We invite you to attend our Happy Hours which are twice a month.
On May 23, our general election candidates will be decided and our IMPACT committee will move into high gear to identify candidates for our financial support. IMPACT is raising unprecedented funds and the significant support from the Sun City Democrats will be clear.
Continued growth is only possible with the active assistance of our members. Thank you for making this a successful group.
