The County Executive Committee meeting chaired by John Austin was held at the Firefighters Hall in San Antonio, and was livestreamed by Karen Marshall on her personal facebook page. The video is split into three parts, in order to leave out most of the party’s financial and budget information, as naturally that does not need to be posted on the world wide web. Commentary provided in the video is her own and not approved by SREC Committeeman Mark Dorazio.
Highlights of the meeting included a visit from Texas Court of Criminal Appeals Judges Mary Lou Keel, Scott Walker and Jesse F. McClure III, and Judge Lori Valenzuela swearing in the crop of new precinct chairs. The meeting got heated at times when new business was brought up. Here are the livestreams:

Texas National Committeewoman Toni Anne Dashiell hosted a forum by Zoom on Friday, June 25th featuring all four of the candidates running to be the new chairman of the Republican Party of Texas.
These candidates are Matt Rinaldi, David Covey, Chad Wilbanks and Bill Burch. One of these four will be elected by the members of the State Republican Executive Committee on July 11th at the special meeting in Lewisville, Texas.
This election meeting will be livestreamed on the TXSD25 facebook page, and is scheduled to start at 2:00 PM CST.
If you have a strong preference for which candidate you would like to see elected, you should contact your SREC Committeeman and Committeewoman to let them know who you would like them to vote for. If you live in Senate District 25 (Donna Campbell’s district), then Mark Dorazio and Krissy Coons are your SRECs.
The new chairman will serve until the next state convention, in 2022.

Monday, January 25, 2021 at the Hays County Republican Party Welcome Center
On this evening, a certain “intrepid photographer” managed to alarm the good people of the Hays Republican Party upon arrival, until she “checked out” as being a fellow Republican of good intent.
Chairman Bob Parks and the County Vice Chairman had a lot of election information and important upcoming efforts they conveyed to the conscientiously spaced attendees of this meeting. SREC Committeeman Terry Harper presented RPT Legislative Priority information. SREC Committeeman Mark Dorazio and SREC Committeewoman Naomi Narvaiz also attended the meeting to gather and exchange information with the Hays County Republicans.
Hays volunteers have furnished their welcome center delightfully patriotically, with a marvelous curated collection of American, Texan, and Republican pictures and authentic memorabilia.
The ladies who organized this project did a superb job from start to finish, rallying volunteers and providing all the supplies for making the hundreds of heartfelt Valentines created which will be delivered to troops in Kuwait by Valentine’s Day. They thought of everything! The event included delicious homemade baked treats, wine, and many generously donated door prizes.
