2018 Has Begun!
2018 Elections Are Underway
Would you consider becoming a Precinct Chair in 2018? They are the central grass-roots organizers who will turn out the vote in November. Precinct Chairs must nominate themselves during the same period as candidates. The deadline is December 11.
Change the Worst Texas Voters Into the Best
Members and associates of the Texas Alliance for Retired Americans (TARA) are the best voters in the state, because their percentage turnout is much higher than younger people and they vote in their own interests. Texas retirees not associated with TARA have been the worst voters, because they also vote in high percentages, but they have been voting for the people who are trying to cut our throats!
TARA members and associates can reach out and turn the rest of the retirees into good voters, and that is our intention. Having more of us become precinct chairs is part of the answer!

You can Google any County Party Headquarters. For example, put “Anderson County Texas Democrats” into your browser to find the Democratic Party headquarters in Anderson County, Texas.
Take the Power And Use It
At election time, seniors normally think only about whether or not we will vote. But these are not normal times. Today, seniors need to grab every opportunity to educate and activate others. Precinct Chairs get lists of voters and nonvoters in their area. TARA could help with registration, education, outreach and social activities to increase turnout by the good voters.
The critical area for winning in 2018 is your own neighborhood!

We’re Still Under the Congressional Gun
While we are preparing for 2018, we still have to deal with the catastrophe caused by the current office holders. The Tax Deform bills in the House and Senate are slightly different, but both of them give the big bucks to the rich and take away drastically from Medicare and Medicaid.

Keep up the fight!
