President's Message
Putting Our Money
Where Our Mouths Are! 
In our bylaws, the first stated objective of Preston West Republican Women is  to work for the election of the Republican party's nominees.
We had a successful fundraiser last year with the incredibly knowledgeable and informative Luke Macias as our speaker where we generated $4000 for our party's candidates. We have added to that amount to make a total of $8000 that we are donating to our Republican candidates. A committee was formed and spent a long while deliberat-ing how much and to whom to give. The slate of donees was presented

to the Preston West Board where even more lively discussion was held before the final slate was
formalized. We are proud to announce to our members the list of candidates that will be receiving donations from Preston West. They are as follows:

          Aimee Ramsey - District 114 Texas House (Preston West member)
        John Jun - District 115 Texas House
        Chris Roberts - DISD trustee, District 1
        J.J. Koch - Chief Justice, TX 5th Court of Appeals
        Earl Jackson - TX 5th District Court of Appeals, Place 10
        Emily Miskel - TX 5th District Court of  Appeals, Place 13
        Jessica Lewis - TX 5th District Court of Appeals, Place 2
        Cynthia Barbare - TX 5th District Court of Appeals, Place 5
        Gina Parker - TX 5th District Court of Appeals, Place 7
        Matthew Kolodoski - TX 5th District Court of Appeals, Place 9

        Mike Lee -  TX 5th District Court of Appeals, Place 12

          David Schenck - Chief Justice TX Court of Criminal Appeals
        Winner of Runoff between Pam Little & Jamie Kohlmann, TX SBOE Pl. 12

I am excited, happy and proud of the work that Preston West has accomplished in  order to support all of these wonderful candidates, Hopefully, many of these candidates will be present at some of our meetings so that we may present their check to them.

Now that we have finished this process, let's go forth and continue to support all of these candidates with our continued energy and efforts.

Protecting the Texas We Love and America's Future
As we edge closer to the 2024 Presidential Elections this November, it is clear this election cycle is the most critical of our lifetime. The stakes could not be higher, not just for the Lone Star State but for the entirety of our great Nation. It is imperative that we, as Republicans, unite around our shared conservative principles to champion American values and safeguard our cherished freedoms.

The Biden Administration and its allies in the radical left pose an unprecedented threat to our liberties. Their actions are far from mere political rhetoric and signal a blatant disregard for the 10th Amendment and an alarming intent to micromanage our daily lives. This encroach- ment
 upon our freedoms should serve as a wake-up call to every Texan about the gravity
of this election
The wisdom of President Ronald Reagan rings just as true today as it did decades ago. "Freedom is a fragile thing and it's never more than one generation away from extinction." His guiding words under- score the vigilance required to preserve the democratic ideals bestowed by our forefathers and should serve as a rallying cry for every Republican.

Our Nation's challenges are very real, from the disastrous border policies that have allowed over 8 million illegal immigrants to cross into our country, to attacks on America's energy sector, which is a cornerstone of Texas' economy and key to national security. The radical left's agenda, if left unchecked
threatens to fundamentally alter the fabric of our nation. The Biden Administration's pause on lique- fied gas (LNG) exports, capitulating to extreme environmentalists, and proposals to federalize Texas' energy grid, exemplify the kind of overreach that we must stand against.

Furthermore, the prospect of a Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) presents a profound threat to our economic well-being, financial freedom and privacy. A national digital dollar means Americans could find themselves granting the federal unprecedented access to monitor and control our financial activities with complete disregard for protecting individual liberty, resembling China's "social credit" system.

As we stand at this crossroads, let us remember that elections have consequences. The vision of America as a land of freedom and opportunity is at stake. We owe it to the generations that sacrificed for our freedoms, and to future generations, to bear the torch of liberty. It is our duty to pull together, as Texans and Americans, to confront the crisis ahead with resolve and unity. In doing so, we honor the gift of democracy, ensuring that America remains the greatest Nation on earth.

Yours in Liberty,
Tan Parker
