City Council District 8 Democratic Candidate Forum
Congratulations to Rich DePalma, City Council District 8 candidate, for earning the required 55% majority endorsement vote of Circle C Area Democrats!
Thanks to all members who voted in this important endorsement election.
Many thanks to everyone who helped make our 2nd Annual fundraiser, Justice Has No Border, an incredible success!
Thank you to Kim Olson, Jim Hightower, and Cristina Tzintzun from Jolt for making our July 9 meeting a huge success.
Circle C Area Democrats (CCAD) is a Democratic club and state-registered political action committee in southwest Travis County. Our membership includes residents of Circle C, Western Oaks, Legend Oaks, Shady Hollow, Scenic Brook, Maple Run, Deer Park at Maple Run, Twin Creeks, Sendera, Oak Creek Parke, Aviara, Meridian, Oak Hill and other southwest Austin neighborhoods. We are dedicated to community service and building a grassroots organization to support the election of Democrats to local, regional, and national office. We seek to level the playing field by electing more Democrats, boosting party I.D. and serving a growing community of informed and motivated party activists.
Southwest Travis County is at a crossroads. Despite GOP efforts to gerrymander our congressional and legislative districts, rapid growth and changing demographics have thrown a major wrench into those plans. In just a few years, we’ve gone from “deep red” to solidly competitive. Success in our area is seen as critical to the chances of both major parties next year.
Many “reliable” Republican precincts are now up for grabs and Circle C Area Democrats is leading the fight by raising money to support our candidates, canvassing door-to-door, phone-banking and doing whatever it takes to Get Out The Vote. We are a growing, motivated group of volunteers who are no longer content to sit on the sidelines and let others do the work for us. We believe the only way to turn southwest Travis County blue is for southwest area residents to take the lead. With that in mind, please join us for our monthly meetings and learn how you can be an important part of turning Texas blue!
