Over the past few months, Democrats have gained huge momentum not just around the country but here in Harris County. We saw this all come together with our Fall Friendsgiving Festival in November. The energy at Baker Ripley House was electric.
We will bring the same energy to our 2018 Johnson, Rayburn, Richards Dinner. The Harris County Democratic Party couldn’t be more excited to announce that Leader Nancy Pelosi from California will be our keynote speaker.
Pelosi was the first woman ever to be elected Speaker of the House in 2007. This year’s dinner is going to be awesome! We are revamping the program a bit, bringing back the after party with a vengeance and adding a kick-off event January 16th. Individual tickets will go on sale at the kick-off party.
Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, Congressman Al Green and Congressman Gene Green will be Honorary co-chairs for the event, bringing a lot of passion and enthusiasm to an already star-studded program.
Our theme for the night is It All Starts Here because we believe Harris County is ground zero and the first stop on the way to flipping Texas. As Harris County goes, so goes the state and so goes the country!
