In an effort to increase the Republican presence in contentious Texas counties, the Hill Country Young Republicans are shifting their geographic focus northward to Travis while maintaining an active presence in Hays County.
The absence of a federated Young Republicans organization in Texas’s capital city and the need to energize urban Republicans led the Executive Board to unanimously vote to refocus their efforts. Officers expressed their excitement about the move and hopes to make an impact in one of the state’s most infamously blue counties.
“We’ve done good work in Hays County, but it is clear that our efforts are needed elsewhere,” said Hill Country Young Republicans President, Felisha Bull. She stressed the importance of GOP efforts in urban areas, especially those which may be ignored because they historically lean Democratic: “If we accept that some areas are blue and do nothing about it, we lose the opportunity to connect with new voters and broaden the Republican base for decades to come.”
Previously, the organization was centered on Hays and Comal counties, but accepted members from adjoining counties, including Travis. With the new, shifted focus, the Hill Country Young Republicans work primarily in Travis and Hays counties, while still accepting members from all adjoining counties.
Hill Country Young Republicans will be meeting the fourth Thursday of every month at Central Texas Gun Works off Ben White Boulevard in Austin. More details regarding the organization’s focus and territory can be found at www.hillcoyr.org.
