Michael discussed the Tarrant County Democratic Party’s structure and key leaders - Chair Deborah Peoples, Executive Director Marco Rosas, and Precinct Leadership Chair Beth Kelly. He also described the party’s standing committees, and how NWTP integrates with the party. A key goal of the TCDP and NWTP is to fill vacant precinct chair positions, and Beth Kelly is the focal point for that effort. The County Executive Committee will be meeting at 10:00AM on June 1, in the Jefferson Unitarian Universalist Church, 1959 Sandy Lane, Fort Worth, Texas 76112. This is a great opportunity to learn and get involved. Information on CEC activities will be posted on the club website at www.nwtarrantprogressives.com.
