Conservative activists are headed towards what appears to be a good night on March 6th, but they should making plans to continue the fight afterwards. In most counties, Republicans will be able to meet in precinct conventions immediately following the election or shortly thereafter and begin the process of establishing the party platform and selecting delegates to the state convention.
In order to strengthen the Republican Party Platform and elect strong conservative leaders, citizens must plan on becoming delegates to the state convention of the Republican Party of Texas. Once there, these grassroots activists will participate in shaping the role, direction, and platform of the Republican Party. You can do this by submitting resolutions to change the platform. We have written three example resolutions that you can put forward at your precinct convention. Click on the respective links to read and print the resolutions:
- Strong Spending Limit For Property Tax Relief
- Turn Off The Magnets (Immigration Reform)
- Defunding Democrats (Tax Payer Funded Union Dues)
Delegates volunteer and are chosen by their County or Senate District Conventions to attend the State Convention that will take place in San Antonio June 14-16, 2018.
