Senator Hinojosa had the honor of swearing in newly elected Democratic County Chairman Joseph Ramirez at the County Party’s kickoff fundraiser. The event drew over 600 enthusiastic local Democrats ready to register voters, organize and win this November.
As Chairman Ramirez informed the crowd about the plans being put in place to turn out the vote, Senator Hinojosa focused his remarks on why elections matter, recalling the fight last legislative session to restore over $4 billion in cuts that House Republicans had slashed from our public schools.
State Representative Joaquin Castro, who will be stepping up to Congress next year, delivered the keynote address focusing on “building an infrastructure of opportunity.”
One thing was made clear: Nueces Democrats are united, fired up, and ready to turn out the vote.
