President's Message

It's Time to get Busy - January


Happy New Year to all BARW members!

We all know as Republicans that our Representative Republic thrives with the thoughtful participation of its citizens. Similarly, our Bay Area Republican Women club requires that same thoughtful engagement to promote an informed electorate. Many of you joined BARW to become part of that informed electorate. Get the most out of your BARW membership by participating fully in club activities. Please consider participating in these upcoming events, and bring your friends. -- We’re going to have a great time!

Our next meeting! Judicial Candidates Forum, Wednesday, January 24th, 10:30 a.m. Primary season is here! Every 2 years in March we vote for candidates who will represent the Republican Party on the ballot in November. The Republican Primary Election Day is on Tuesday, March 6th (early voting begins on February 20th). Most of our judges are elected, not appointed, so it’s important for voters to be informed. Learn about our Harris County Judicial candidates at our next meeting’s Judicial Candidates Forum. Bring your friends! Precinct Chairs are also up for election! If there is not a Republican Chair in your precinct, consider running for your precinct’s chair. Let’s keep Harris County RED!

The 27th Annual BARW Lincoln Day Dinner with the Hon. Allen B. West, Saturday, February 3rd. This is a truly fabulous event, and our only fund raiser of the year, so it’s important for each member to show their BARW pride and participate! It will be at the beautiful Lakewood Yacht Club and we expect it to sell out again, so get those reservations in as soon as possible. To attend, you may RSVP online via this link; or via the mail using this invite and response card.

Proud to be a Texan - September


I hope this newsletter finds you and yours safe from the harm that was hurricane Harvey. What the world witnessed happening on television to strangers was happening to our families, friends and neighbors if not to our own homes. Houston and so many other counties in Texas have been affected. It was devastating to witness yet in the darkest of times we also witnessed the best of humanity.

The eyes of the nation were upon Houston and proudly we did not disappoint. For just a brief shining moment we saw people working together. Economic status, skin color - none of these things mattered when faced with this challenge We had a glimpse of what America should and could be when we all work together to help our fellow citizens. As Texans we simply do not accept defeat. I am so very proud to be a Houstonian, a Texan and American.

Houston has set the example for the nation and God willing the country has taken notice of the good that arises when Americans working together to benefit the country and her citizens.

God bless Texas!

God bless America!

Time to roll up our sleeves and return to work - August


The summer has come and gone and our members enjoyed a much needed break with family and friends but while we were celebrating the days of summer, hate sadly continued to make its presence known daily. It is now time to roll up our sleeves and return to work. There are those doing their best to demonize the President and those that support him. It is frustrating some days to witness the continued attacks from the media and the left but we must stay strong and focused. I refuse to let hate and lies destroy our great nation and tear us apart from within.

Taken from Donna Paltrow...

I have a prayer request. There's a lady I've known forever. She's very sick. On top of that, she's being abused by those she has given everything to. Lies about her abound, and seem to come from all sides. Just breaks my heart. She's well over 200 years old, but way too young to die. Her name is America and I love her. Pray for the USA.
