March For Our Lives

Following the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida that resulted in the deaths of 17 people, the students of the school began a movement called March For Our Lives. The students and young people, who will soon be voters, are rebelling against being endangered in the very atmosphere they need to prepare them for their futures. They are demanding sensible gun legislation to decrease gun violence in our country.

The official day of the March in Washington, DC and the sister marches was March 24, the day of our County Convention. Llano is one of the over 800 cities across the US who conducted marches in their hometowns. We finished the County Convention at noon, marched to Courthouse Square and our Representative Mike Conaway's office. We then crossed the Llano Bridge and back again.

Traffic slowed a bit as people read the signs, we received some thumbs-ups and a very few frowns. We also left a few of our signs at Representative Conaway's office. The Llano News covered the story here. 


Llano County Democratic Convention

Llano County's Democratic Convention convened at 10am March 24 at the Llano County Library.

We selected the delegates to the State Democratic Convention and voted on Resolutions to be forwarded to the SDEC and State Democratic Party. Special thanks to Jenny Lou Leeder, the Democratic candidate running for US Congress, District 11, for speaking to the Convention.

Thanks so much for all the hard work our volunteers put in to make this an amazingly efficient and productive Convention. We can all feel the Blue Wave Coming!

Llano County Democrats Celebrate

Why are these Llano County Democrates so happy? Could it be because all of that hard work is paying off? Democratic Primary voters nearly doubled in the 2018 midterm elections from the 2014 midterms.

A little celebration, then heads-down-back to work!
