The next meeting is

We will be meeting in the
Activities Room of the Grayson County Courthouse
in Sherman, 100 W. Houston St.
( Enter the building on the SOUTH side across from Knight Furniture on W. Lamar St. The elevator will take you up to the Activities Room. Doors open at 6:20 and close at 7:20.)
Our speakers are Tamara Colbert and Paul Hodson. They co-founded the organization Grassroots Gold. Their mission, according to the two, is to be the Gold Standard in Activism. They will share with us what they have learned from their successful previous grassroots experience in Texas. You may have run into them as they worked to get the Convention of States passed in Texas. According to Tamara and Paul it’s time to change the playing field in Austin and with our local government.
Everyone is welcome. There is no charge to attend our meetings or to join the Texoma Patriots. We need your voice now more than ever since conservative values are under attack, and we can no longer be the silent majority.

Quote from Milton Friedman, “The important thing is to establish a political climate of opinion which will make it politically profitable for the wrong people to do the right thing.”
“Showing up” and “being heard” are the most powerful statements we can make in advocacy. The goal of Grassroots Gold for this 87th legislative session is to be remembered as belonging to the grassroots - not Blue, Red, or Purple, but Gold, reflecting what we have demanded. With their help, we can learn what it takes to pass priority legislation. The Texas House and Senate both gaveled back in on January 26th, and together we can impel our elected officials to pass the legislative priorities we voted on.
Please take the survey they have posted on their website: https://grassrootsgold.com/
On the homepage, there is a big link that says,
“Let Gov Abbott hear from me.” Answers are anonymous, but they will be using that survey in their discussion.
