ALL ABOUT IMPACT
Informed Members Political Action Committee of Texas (IMPACT) is a nonconnected political action committee (PAC) sponsored by the Sun City Democrats Club. A PAC 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 the Federal Election Commission, a requirement that provides transparency in electoral processes.
Thanks to all our donors we raised $84,000 – far surpassing our 2017-18 fundraising goal of $75,000! These funds were used to help Democrats win the November mid-term elections at every level of government. Now, through the Presidential election in November 2020, we are once again focused on raising money to support democratic candidates in both the primary and general elections. We start 2019 with a fundraising goal of $60,000 and hope to raise this goal even higher (past our 2018 goal) as we move forward into 2020!
As in the past, IMPACT will be engaged in ongoing vetting procedures and discussions with the Williamson County Democratic Party to assess how to best invest IMPACT funds to achieve Democratic wins in 2020.
Vetting focuses on each candidate’s performance during the period leading up to the elections, their viability against the candidate of the other party and their ability to raise money for their campaign. In addition to polling data, we look at candidates’ knowledge and experience for the office they seek, their endorsements, their grasp of the issues and offered solutions, their ability to engage voters in public appearances in a positive way, and their amount of earned free media.

We ask all Democrats to consider contributing to IMPACT. A donation of $10 per month or an annual donation of $100, from each of you, makes 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.
