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.

Welcome

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
