Calendar of DCCRW Events
February, 2017, President's Message
As preparations are underway for TFRW’s Legislative Day in Austin next month, I hope you are planning to do two things:
1) Attend our DCCRW meeting on Tuesday, March 7th, to hear a presentation on “political efficacy”, and
2) Travel to Austin for TFRW’s Legislative Day events on Thursday, April 6th!
So many of our members travel to Austin the day before for other TFRW events. If you are traveling to Austin just for the day, we encourage carpooling within your clubs. Our DCCRW Legislative Director, Carey Austin, has been in contact with our legislative delegation and they have arranged a schedule of special meetings at the Capitol for those who do not attend the TFRW events away from the Capitol.
It is not enough for us to simply elect good Republicans to office, we must continue to support them in office by communicating with them. They need to know – want to know – what our views are on the issues about which they must make decisions. Even when we don’t have opinions on every issue, letting them know you appreciate their service may be just they encouragement they need to continue the fight for good and thoughtful public policy.
Along the same line of thinking, our President needs our encouragement too. You’ve seen all the media coverage of protests against Donald Trump since his election and inauguration. An email message has circulated asking Republicans to write a postcard to President Trump letting him know that we support him. The message asks for everyone to mail their postcards on the same day, March 15th, so that the mass of postcards will inundate the White House post office! It seems like such a little thing to do, but if each one of us sent one postcard and asked our family members and like-minded friends to do the same – we would be part of a great demonstration of support for President Trump.
I look forward to seeing you –
Dr. Merrill Matthews of IPI
