Report from National Democratic delegate Alex Karjeker.
This weekend Sherrie Matula's campaign is organizing a block walking event. Myself and fellow National Delegate Melanie Wilson will be walking.
We're looking for people to come block walk with us. We will begin at 5:30pm on Sunday with a small training and then walk for two hours (6-8pm). We will meet at the
Sherrie's HQ is at 17300 Saturn, Suite 105 for other volunteer activities and materials.
Sherrie Matula is a wonderful candidate who will do great things in Austin. As I discussed with many of you, Texas is only 5 seats away from having a majority in the Texas State House. Burnt Orange Report consistently reports her race as one of the most winnable in Texas! If we do not win the House this year, we may get into the same trouble with redistricting as we did back in 2003, but this time Texas is scheduled to pick up 3 Congressional seats. To put this in perspective, if Michael Skelly in District 7 and Larry Joe Doherty in District 10 win their races and we do not lose the Lampson (TX-22) and Rodriguez (TX-23) seats we will split the Texas delegation 15-17. If we pick up the other 3 seats that we could get in 2011, then it'll be 18-17. Texas will have a majority Democrat delegation!
Please come join us. We really need your help-this is a very crucial race Statewide, Nationally, and of course, locally for us here in HD-129. If you can come for even just an hour that would be wonderful. Please RSVP to me if you can make it.
