Meetup opportunities for Fort Bend/Houston DUers

The Fort Bend County Democratic Party is having a fundraiser on Friday, January 24, 2014 with Representative Joaquin Castro as the speaker. http://www.fortbenddemocrats.org/fundraiser

I will be there along with Juanita Jean who has promised that she has some new jokes. Chairman Hinojosa will be there and it should be a fun event. We are holding the event at Tom DeLay's country club.

There is also a Ready for Hillary event in Houston the next day (January 25, 2014) in Houston. I also plan to attend this event. Here are the details for the Hillary event:

Doors Open at: 12:45PM
Program Starts at: 1:00PM
CWA Local 6222
1730 Jefferson St.
Houston, TX 77003

PDittie and I saw each other at one of the redistricting hearing. It has been along time since we tried to have a meetup.

1. Wish I was closer.

And had a sofa to crash on courtesy of some kind soul.

I don't think anyone else in my county is on DU.

3. Here is a report on the Fort Bend Democratic Party fundraiser

The weather cleared up in time for the event. It was a great event http://www.yourhoustonnews.com/fort_bend/news/congressman-joaquin-castro-keynotes-fort-bend-democratic-party-fundraiser/article_a2a92e74-8e2f-5d3c-aeaa-9837313fc890.html?TNNoMobile

Last Friday night brought more than 200 Democratic activists from the greater Houston area to Sweetwater Country Club for a Fort Bend Democratic Party Fundraiser, entitled "Noche Azul." The Party is striving to turn Fort Bend County "Blue" this election cycle. In 2012, Fort Bend was just 2 percentage points away from electing Democrats countywide in this former Republican stronghold.

The keynote speaker was Congressman Joaquin Castro of San Antonio. Congressman Castro and his twin brother Julian, the Mayor of San Antonio, were featured speakers at the 2012 Democratic National Convention.

Congressman Castro called upon dinner guests to stand and deliver Texas to Democrats. He urged Democrats to insure that President Obama’s programs were not killed in congress or thwarted from implementation by Texas Republicans.

Again, this was a great event
