Fort Bend County Democratic Party: 2013 Winter Retreat

After the 2008 Presidential Election, we were all euphoric and exhausted. Many of us felt we deserved a rest. (Watch the President's Inaugural Address below)

Then, the Tea Party zealots took governorships, state legislatures and Congress in the 2010 midterm election and began to execute an agenda that weakened the labor movement, stifled women’s rights, and disenfranchised voters everywhere.

Never again!  The 2014 mid-term elections must mark the return of a Democratic majority in the US House of Representatives and the election of Progressives at every level of government.

To that end, the Fort Bend County Democratic Party is hosting its 2013 Winter Retreat.   We plan to bring together political activists, like you, who have been on the front lines fighting to re-elect President Barack Obama and other candidates who reflect our core Democratic values.
