The Liberty County Republican Women are a group of Republican Women who want to make a difference in our government and in our community. We support the Republican beliefs and standards. We want to get women involved in the political system and to help raise money for our candidates. We help out with campaigns in any way possible and in fundraising events in our area. We also get information in the hands of other women about our party and our beliefs and why we should get out and vote. We also help out at the polls if needed. We encourage other women to help us out and to stand up for their beliefs. We also encourage women to run for office.

At another Quarterly Meeting with record breaking attendance on April 7th, Liberty County District Attorney Logan Pickett addressed members of the Liberty County Republican Party. Pickett described the challenges surrounding his job from budgetary issues to the 62% increase in cases due to growth in Liberty County. All in attendance found Pickett's presentation to be interesting as well as informative.
In other news, the Liberty County Republican Party discussed and approved 2016 fundraising efforts which included working with the Liberty County Republican Women's group in the raffling off of a quilt.

LIBERTY, TEXAS - As a part of our ongoing involvement in the community and in order to recognize those who also give so much to our community, The Liberty County Republican Party donated a 48 inch HDTV as a door prize to the First Responders of Liberty County. At the end of their January meeting, the winner of the 48" HDTV was The Hardin Fire Department. We appreciate our first responders for assisting our community with their talents, energy, and time. Thanks again for all you do!
By now everyone is aware of the re-election of John Boehner as Speaker of the House. To say the least, the vote by a few of our local Texas congressional delegation was disappointing. Close to home in Liberty County, our former Congressman (now 2nd District Congressman) Ted Poe cast a vote in favor of John Boehner while our newly elected Congressman Brian Babin (of the 36th District) voted “present”.
This article was not written to defend or criticize either Congressman. Rather, this article was written to present information to Liberty County Republicans from the public explanations of each Congressman’s vote.
