Hays County is growing incredibly fast. It grew 53% from 2010 to 2020 making it the fastest growing county in the U.S. with a population over 100,000. And recent census counts indicate the growth is not slowing down. It is going to take a massive effort from hundreds of Conservative Volunteers to connect with those New Residents before the Republican Party Primary Election on March 5th, 2024.

The Republican Precinct Chairs are well trained and supported by the Hays County Republican Party (HCRP) to work to get out the Conservative Vote but we still need more Precinct Chairs and they will need every Conservative’s help. In addition to finding and supporting Precinct Chairs, the HCRP has actively supported the numerous Conservative Groups and Student Organizations which help with such outreach and provide invaluable assistance to our Candidates. Information on these Groups and Organizations can be found on the page under the Groups tab.

But Precinct Chair, Group, Student Organization and Candidate efforts are only as effective as the turnout of the Conservative Vote. And the Conservative Vote grows when there is an Informed Electorate. We All Need To Be Engaged And Involved, especially at the Polls! Please get involved Today by clicking the Volunteer button, contacting a Group, attending an Event or finding out who is your Precinct Chair and becoming one if your Precinct is Open.

Only if We All Work Together can we set Hays County on the Conservative Path which will Assure it a brighter future. We look forward to working with you. Make Sure Your Vote Counts!

Bob Parks, Chair
Hays County Republican Party


A message from President Kit Whitehall, TFRW President.

It is with a heavy heart that I must share the devastating news that our dear friend and TFRW Secretary Grace Jones, has tragically passed away. Grace was a beloved member of TFRW, and her loss is deeply felt by all who knew her.

Grace was a dedicated and passionate woman who loved the Lord and contributed significantly to TFRW, the Republican Party of Texas, her family and her community. She had a remarkable ability to inspire and lead by example, and lived her life by the principles of kindness, compassion and service. She will be deeply missed, and her absence will leave a void that cannot be filled.

This heartbreaking incident has left us all in disbelief and sorrow, and Grace’s memory will forever be cherished by those who loved her. In the coming days, details will be shared on how you can honor Grace and support her four children and family.

Condolences can be sent to:
Family of Grace Jones
409 N. Goliad
Alice, TX 78332

Fervently in prayer.
Kit Whitehill

Phishing Attack Against Precinct Chairs

It has been brought to our attention that Precinct Chairs are receiving emails purportedly from the HCRP Chair offering Gift Cards. The offer is not legit. It is a Phishing Expedition. DO NOT CLICK on the link. DELETE the email.

As a rule of good practice, always closely examine the FROM address associated with any emails, not the name (HCRP Chair) but the email address (sender@domain.com). If you do not recognize the @domain.com portion or if it looks questionable in any way, Do Not Trust It. If you have any question, reach out to the purported sender directly through the email in your own Contacts list or visit the sender site using your own bookmarked URL.

With email, it is always best to be suspicious. The best anti-virus and malware software in the world are always playing catch up with new approaches to compromising your security and stealing your data. Software cannot protect you from yourself. Ultimately, common sense is your best defense and you are your best defender.

HCRW: Wimberley Independence Day Parade Float (2023)


Our fabulous Texas State Republicans who walked and sometimes ran the entire length of the parade. People were very impressed and commented about their participation.
We look forward to working with them in the future.
Thank You!

Yes, as stated before, it did feel great to win.
We learned a lot in our first appearance at the Wimberley Parade.

Parade was a GIANT Block Walk. We reached hundreds of people that we would not normally reach.
Texas State Students engaged and walking next to float impacted people along the parade route. They truly made a difference in previous perceptions. Yes, there are Republicans at Texas State.
The positive Energy as we passed was contagious. People are hungry for change. Parade Watchers were ecstatic to see REPUBLICANS actively engaging.
We put the effort into making the float the BEST it could be and it paid off. We did the work and we stood out!
We need to do the same in 2024 in everything we do to win.
Our elected officials walking along float made them more accessible.
Loved that they actively supported us in this endeavor.
Next time, we will need lots more candy, beads and campaign information to pass out.
Plans are already in the works for a repeat in 2024.

Why Attend The Lincoln-Reagan Dinner?

Conservatives are disappointed. Heck, they are mad! The outcome of the 2022 General Election here in Hays County and nationwide was not what we expected, much less wanted. Everyone is looking for a reason and too many are looking for someone or something to blame.

The bottom line is that We Lost The Election!

It was a gut punch, especially for our great incumbents and candidates. Many have walked away from the party in frustration. And lot of people are questioning why bother attending the Annual Lincoln~Reagan Dinner? Why indeed?

The names associated with the event should be reason enough. Lincoln, Reagan and their history with the Republican Party.
