President's Message

From the words of our TFRW President, “What an exciting time to be a Republican!”
I couldn’t agree more! I am so excited to announce that the Vice-Chair of the Texas Republican Party, Alma Perez Jackson, is coming all the way from San Antonio on Monday, February 10th to speak to our club. She will discuss the importance of this election year and how we can KEEP TEXAS RED! Please try your best to attend and bring a friend, as I would love to have a good crowd for this important program.
We also have our Meet the Candidates Mixer scheduled for Thursday, February 13th. Please share the event on Facebook so that we can get as many voters as possible to attend! We are also printing flyers to hand out and to place in local businesses around the county.
I would like to announce the appointment of the Chairman for the following Standing Committees:
Gail Brand (Membership Chair), Melinda Polk (Caring for America), Jody Deller (Parliamentarian), Deborah Bonner (Historian), Karen Badgley (Bylaws), Erleigh Wiley (Fundraising) and Isela Woolverton (Americanism). I know they will each be looking for volunteers for their respective committees and I look forward to hearing about what each of them have in store for our club!
Last, if you have not paid your dues for 2020, please do so BEFORE March 1st. If you ordered a name badge, those are in, and I will bring them to the meeting on Monday, February 10th.
Amy Tarno
President, K.C.R.W.

February Meeting Program

ALMA PEREZ JACKSON

We are excited to have Alma Perez Jackson, Vice-Chair of the Texas Republican Party, come and speak to our club next week! Ms. Jackson is a member of the San Antonio Republican Women’s Club, and a dedicated activist for the Republican Party. Among the many things Ms. Jackson has done for Texas are the following: serving as a Republican Precinct Chair from 1987-2016 and SREC member from 2014-2016, as well as stepping up to run for political office. Her newest success is being named Vice-Chair of the Republican Party of Texas!

Here is a short biography, in her own words:
I was born in Laredo, Texas. When I was very young, my family moved to San Antonio, and my parents taught me and my seven siblings that living in America was an honor and a privilege.
In 1978, I married my best friend Christopher Jackson, a police officer and Vietnam Veteran and together we raised three children. I love being a grandmother to eleven grandchildren ranging from ages 1- 24.
A problem solver by nature and wanting to care for my young children myself and also contribute to the household income, I started and successfully operated a daycare small business for more than 16 years.
A strong proponent of education, I elected to go back to school in 1995 and attended San Antonio College achieving a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from the University of Texas at San Antonio.
A proud Texan and a leader in the community, I eagerly volunteered in projects to improve the lives of working families. Retired now, but most days you will find me out among the citizens of Bexar County working hard to grow our local GOP while discussing our conservative positions on job creation, taxes, local control of schools, limited government and support of law enforcement, second amendment rights and property rights.

Dinner Pick Up

Ladies, we would like to try something a little different with our dinner pick up routine for our Monday evening meetings. Instead of one person being responsible for the pick up and take home of what is remaining, we would like to ask members to volunteer to pick up the food on their way to the meeting. The club will still be responsible for the bill, therefore, please hold your receipt so our Treasurer can reimburse you for the expense. We will have a list as the February 10 meeting with future dates to choose from, if interested in helping out with this need.
