Chair- Precinct 11
Hon. Gilberto Hinojosa
Texas Democratic Party
The official head of the Hill County Democratic Party is the County Chair, who is elected during the Democratic Primary every two years. The County Chair is responsible for developing the policies and goals on which the party will focus during the next election and beyond. Some of their responsibilities include overseeing the Primary, Candidate Filing, and other elections; chairing County Executive Committee Meetings; organizing and leading the local party; as well as overseeing and/or assisting with precinct and county or Senate District Conventions as required.
What is a Precinct Chair?
A precinct is the smallest political subdivision in Texas. Texas counties are divided into individual precincts, and it is the responsibility of the Precinct Chair to contact, guide and organize Democratic voters in their respective precinct. Precinct Chairs also sit on the County Executive Committee, which conducts the local business of the Party. The duties and responsibilities of Precinct Chairs provide fundamental services to party effectiveness.
Precinct Chairs are responsible for:
• Working with others to mobilize and organize voters and get them to the polls
• Representing their precinct on the County Executive Committee
• Bridging the gap between voters and elected officials
• Serves as the contact person for the Democratic Party in their neighborhood
State Democratic Executive Committee (SDEC)
The SDEC Committeeman and woman serve as liaison to County Chairs and help Party leadership organize and conduct Primary Elections, County/ Senate District Conventions, and State Conventions. I am looking forward to serving District 22, participating in Senate District, County party and local Democratic club meetings, events, and activities, and working with Democratic candidates.”
