ALL ABOUT IMPACT
Informed Members Political Action Committee of Texas is a part of Sun City Democrats Club. A PAC (political action committee) is required for any group wanting to raise money for candidates seeking political office. IMPACT has its own Treasurer and accounts, thus insulating its funds from those of the Sun City Democrats Club. IMPACT reports to the Texas Ethics Commission and/or to a similar Federal body, a requirement that provides transparency in electoral processes. IMPACT is the only PAC in Williamson County that raises and donates funds to Democratic candidates.
Our goal is to raise $50,000 ahead of 2018 Primary elections in early March to help Democrats win elections at every level of government.
Democrats will make their choices in the Primary Election in early March 2018. Soon after the Primary, the IMPACT Committee will engage in vetting procedures and discussions with the Williamson County Democratic Party to assess how to best invest IMPACT funds to achieve Democratic wins in November.
Vetting will focus on each candidate’s performance in the Primary, their viability against the candidate of the other party and their ability to raise money for their campaign. We will look at their knowledge and experience for the office they seek, their endorsements, their grasp of the issues and offered solutions, as well as their ability to engage voters in public appearances in a positive way. Having earned free media will also be considered along with polling data.
We ask all Democrats to consider contributing to IMPACT. A donation of $10 a month for the year, or a $100 donation from each of you will make it possible to achieve our goal. This is our fight. We cannot leave it to others. Our task, our reason to be a PAC, is to raise the money that gives confidence to those who are willing to step up and become candidates.
Billie Reaney is the Chair of IMPACT — firstname.lastname@example.org . Members of the Impact Committee are Vice Chair Kim Moran, Treasurer Ira Dolich, Assistant Treasurer Vicki Miller, Secretary Janet Fulk, Connie Carden, and Cheryl Riley
