When I was in the Navy, each of my days were started by hearing these words blasting from the loud speaker: “Now Hear This, Now Hear This”. It is a sound that I really never forget. Following that wake up greeting were the orders of the day and any other information that was pertinent.
I reflected on that experience recently as we started a new year for the Hays County Republican Party. It is my wish that we all take a deep breath and stay focused on the work that we have to do in 2021 at the county level. We are a County Party. We have local elections in front of us, candidates to find and candidates to support. We have numerous opportunities in front of us to expand our Republican Groups and to carry our conservative messages effectively to every corner of the county. We have the 87th Texas Legislature in session and consideration will be given to the 10 legislative priorities of the Republican Party of Texas. We have a responsibility as a county party to stay engaged in support of our conservative values as they play out in this session.
As your Chairman, it will be my pleasure to lead the Hays County Republican Party as we work together to be highly engaged Republicans. No road is absolutely smooth. All roads have a few bumps. The trick is always to navigate past the bumps and to get where you want to go.
Please join me on a trip this year to a place called HAYS COUNTY RED. You will not find it on your GPS. You will, however, find it by following your GOP. I look forward to seeing you on the road!
Bob Parks, Chair
Hays County Republican Party
