As a Republican Precinct Chair your #1 goal is to maximize the Republican vote in your precinct, as you are the elected Republican leader in your precinct. This goal can be achieved by building a solid team within your precinct to register voters, inform voters, and turn out voters. Building a team is not as hard as many people think, as the #1 reason people do not volunteer is because they are not asked to volunteer and in many cases are not informed about how to get involved. In my opinion, the job of informing voters of current political events, issues, upcoming elections, and candidate information is the most important job of the precinct chair. My theory is that if voters are informed then they will turn out to vote, thus by informing the voter you will achieve your #1 goal.
As a Republican Precinct Chair you will also sit on the County Executive Committee in which you will be able to get further involved at the county level, and have the opportunity to participate on other committees. Your membership on the Executive Committee will allow you to express your concerns from your precinct voters that will help drive the Harris County Republican Party.
You will also have responsibilities in the convention process at the precinct, senatorial, and state conventions. As a Republican Precinct Chair you will be encouraged to become delegates to the senatorial and state conventions and are encouraged to volunteer on one of the convention committees. Again, this is another opportunity to make a huge difference and let your views known.
The best thing about becoming a precinct chair is that you have the power to make a difference at the grassroots level. The grassroots level movement is the lowest level, if you think about it; you are the foundation of government. Without a strong foundation a home cannot stand, so why don’t you take the challenge to build that strong foundation and build a strong home for Harris County, the State of Texas, and Our Nation. Without a strong home you cannot protect your family from the elements, therefore without a strong grassroots effort you cannot protect you or your family from the loss of Liberty. Come join me in the fight and make things happen by filing for Republican Precinct Chair on or before January 4, 2010.
