Recently, Democrats received an e-mail from outgoing Democratic Finance Chair Bill Baldwin who stepped down to take on some campaign duties on a 2015 campaign. Today, Democrats received an e-mail from HCDP’s new Finance Chair, Luis Lopez.
I’m sure you’ve seen him mentioned here on the DC, since I had the honor of helping Luis out as he repped Dems in the race for Texas House District 132. Luis ran a great campaign in a very red year, did some respectable fundraising in a year when Dems were mostly funding the top of the ballot, and, although the result wasn’t in his favor, Luis recommitted to serving his political party and his community. I’m always boasting that Luis is a force of nature, and he will not disappoint in his new role with the Party.
Here’s his e-mail, if you didn’t receive it. Let’s support Luis’ efforts!
I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself to you.
My name is Luis Lopez and I was recently appointed as the new Chair of the Harris County Democratic Party’s Finance Committee.
I could not be more excited to take on the role and the task of helping increase the financial security of our county party.
Election after election we see that when we invest our time, our energy and our financial resources into the Harris County Democratic Party, we get real results. So, yes, I will be asking you to open your wallet and make a contribution in this email.
The backbone of our Party is our sustaining membership program.
What if I told you that it would take an additional 1,292 Harris County Democratic Party Sustaining Members just to match the MINIMUM donation of at least $5000.00 that 31 people have made to the Harris County Republican Party to become members of the Republican Party Cornerstone Club.
We have to do better.
The Finance Committee is working on ways to keep the Party financially secure and raise the funds necessary to continue running programs throughout the year – but we cannot do it without you.
