Re Election Reception for Senator Wendy Davis
The RN/APRN PAC has agreed to secure a suite for a reception for Senator Wendy Davis during the TNP Conference for September 7 in Austin. To help us make sure this is a successful event, and if you feel so inclined, could I enlist you in the effort to try and secure donations for Senator Davis in her re-election bid? No particular dollar amount is being asked for but you all probably know that Senator Davis is being challenged by Representative Mark Shelton, a physician. If Dr. Shelton were to win this campaign, he would join Dr. Deuell, Dr. Schwertner and, Dr. Campbell in the Texas Senate. That would not bode well for us next session.
If you know someone who wants to contribute but is not planning on attending the TNP Conference, no problem. Anyone wanting to attend this event is welcome. You do not need to be in her district. The conference this year is being held at the Austin Renaissance Hotel at 9721 Arboretum Blvd., Austin, Texas 78759. I am waiting on the hotel to provide us the actual suite number and will get it to you as soon as I have one.
The PAC has agreed to donate $1500 to the Davis Campaign. My hope is that we can raise at least $5k. I have no idea if we will get there. If you want to contribute and you want to make it easy; mail checks made out to Wendy Davis for Texas Senate to my address, which is below.
