Go forward bravely. Fear nothing. Trust in God; all will be well.
– St. Joan of Arc

I am honored to introduce myself as the incoming Chairwoman for the Hays County Republican Party, and I am looking forward to partnering with my Hays County neighbors. As a leader, I am grateful for my faith, which guides me in my daily actions, and the above quote from St. Joan of Arc resonates with me as I begin this important leadership role.

Deciding to run for elected office is never something I take lightly. The first question of myself, and any others who ask me about running for office, is: Are you clear on your values and the line you will not cross? My answer is “yes”. I am clear and bringing that clarity to my leadership role as Chairwoman, which include the values of Honesty, Integrity and Transparency.

Since 1998, Hays County has been my home. As a passionate and visionary leader, I am dedicated to empowering and developing others. I believe in the power of collaboration, innovation and enabling others to act. The future of our county is dependent upon each of us to unite our strengths with action. I am inviting you to join the team these next two years, as we bring our message of hope, faith, family and freedom to every corner of Hays County.

We WIN if we:
  * Wrap our arms around this goal
  * Invite new voices to the table
  * Invigorate our party’s base
  * Innovate our strategies and
  * reach out across the county, Neighbor-to-Neighbor.

I am excited to begin my term on Monday, June 17, 2024, and look forward to working together to build a strong and united Republican Party in Hays County. I will be following St. Joan of Arc’s words: Go forward bravely. Fear nothing. Trust in God; all will be well.

Let’s rally together, support our candidates, and bring positive change to our community – let’s WIN together!
