What you will learn

“I’m a small-town kid who grew up with a cornfield in the back yard and dreaming of serving my country in public office.” Vice President Mike Pence

“We all have our roles… We are all who we are. It takes all of us to make a country,” – Rush Limbaugh, text conversation between Mark Levin and Rush as featured in Rescuing Sprite.

Everyone has a role. Is yours serving in public office? Is it recruiting others to run for public service?

The Leadership Institute and The LIBRE Institute are collaborating to present, “Are You Ready to Run: Latino Candidates and Campaigns.”

Are You Ready to Run is a webinar series of discussions with former officeholders, candidates, consultants, campaign managers, and political leaders to help you decide if you should run or if you would be better at identifying and recruiting candidates to run.

This particular installment is a discussion for the Latino communities across America about the importance of local offices and how to prepare for your run. Speakers will include Latinos with political expertise and who have been elected to office.

Ideal attendees for this installment of Are You Ready to Run? are individuals looking to become more politically active or who are recruiting others to run.

Over the course of the series, attendees will learn how to:
• Decide if they are ready to run
• Organize a campaign staff and structure
• Raise funds
• Communicate with voters

Welcome, Delegates, Alternates and Volunteers, to the Bexar County
Senate District 25 2020 Convention!

We are pleased to announce this convention will now take place at

Anne Marie’s Catering & Events
12475 Starcrest Dr, San Antonio, TX  78216

We ask that you arrive by 7:30 AM on

Saturday, May 23rd

to be through the registration line and in your seat in time for the gavel to come down with a quorum in the house at 9:00 AM.

The County Executive Committee members of SD 25 elected Mark Dorazio as our Temporary Convention Chairman.

Upcoming Committee Meetings:

Tuesday, May 19, 2020, 6:00 PM – Nominations Committee — Virtual Meeting —  Meeting ID:  970 7066 6636  Password:  0DSgvU2V54

To volunteer to to serve as much-needed help with registration, as a non-delegate volunteer during the day of convention, by all means, please contact Arrangements Chair Krissy Coons.

Here is the TEXAS STATE REPUBLICAN PARTY CONVENTION DELEGATE APPLICATION to apply to Bexar County’s SD 25 Nominations Committee to be an at-large delegate to the state convention. If you did not attend your Precinct Convention or get nominated there to the SD Convention, you may apply to be nominated to attend the State Convention as an At-Large Delegate by submitting This Form to the Bexar SD 25 Nominations Committee. We strongly recommend you fill it out, scan and send it in before the day of the Senate District Convention. If you cannot do that, then print and fill it out in advance to bring with you.


If you have a Resolution you would like to submit which you did not already submit at your precinct convention, your best option is to email it to the Resolutions Committee Chairman days before the convention.

While emailing it to the Resolutions Committee is better, if you still intend to submit your Resolution in hard copy in person from the floor of the SD Convention, if you did not submit it at your Precinct Convention, know that you must have three separate copies of it in writing to turn in. It is highly advisable to have copies of such Resolutions ready before arriving at convention, typed and printed, rather than hand writing them at the convention.

Convention Committee Chairmen:

Arrangements – Krissy Coons

Credentials – Judge O. Rene Diaz

Permanent Organization – Lani Popp

Nominations – Laura Koerner

Rules – Curt Nelson

Resolutions – Grant Moody

List of all Committees’ Members

The convention committees have been meeting since March 6th and will do so through the convention to complete the business of the convention, which includes electing delegates from our district to the State Convention and passing Resolutions to send on to the State Convention for consideration to be added to our State Party Platform.

Per Republican Party of Texas Rule 14, 
these meetings are "open to any delegate or alternate to that convention, 
any State or County Republican Party Officer, any elected Republican Public 
Officeholder, or any Republican Candidate" and "These same  people shall have 
the right to appear before any convention committee or subcommittee and make 
recommendations for the committee’s consideration or testify concerning any 
item under purview of the committee. The committee may adopt reasonable rules 
including time limits for such presentations and may establish a reasonable 
limit of time for these presentations".

The Bexar County Senate District 25 Convention will be following the same guidelines as those issued by Governor Greg Abbott and Attorney General Ken Paxton for houses of worship, found here.
