The Harris County Democratic Party is riding the blue wave into our 2018 Johnson, Rayburn, Richards dinner on Friday, February, 16th at the Marriott Marquis. Leader Nancy Pelosi from California, the first woman ever to be elected speaker, will be the keynote speaker.
Adding to our night of awesomeness, we are excited to announce there will be three award recipients recognized at the dinner. These awards are named after three native Houstonians, who not just made a difference in the city and their communities but impacted the State of Texas and beyond for generations to come.
Our theme this year is It All Starts Here because Harris County is ground zero and the first stop on the way to flipping Texas. As Harris County goes, so goes the state and the country!
