Convention

  • After two great presentations, the city of El Paso was voted to be the home of the 2024 TX state convention. We are excited to bring the convention to new cities to meet our voters where they are and energize fellow Texans across our great state.


Legislative

  • Report on how to counter the impacts of SB1 for the upcoming elections. Heavy emphasis on mail-in ballots and reducing the rejection rates via better training and coordination. Let your legislator know how you feel.


Finance

  • The 2022 budget was approved with two amendments regarding accessibility and messaging research.

Other Business 

  • DNC - The TDP has 9 members on DNC committees and 4 in executive positions. 

  • Discussions on removing resolutions from the website until they get through a committee. Motion failed. Your representatives felt that access to information should not be limited. 

  • Discussion on the removal of an SDEC member.  After a spirited discussion, the Chairman called for a vote, and it passed.
