Colette McDermott. BAR-W delegates attend state convention In Corpus Christi The Bulverde Area Republican Women sent a delegation of eight to the Texas Federation of Republican Women State convention held in Corpus Christi. TFRW celebrated its 50th year anniversary and held its 25th biennial state convention. Close to 1,000 delegates from around the state converged at the American Bank Center for sessions, lunch and awards and the COP trade show. TFRW and its 12,519 members is a grass -roots organization influencing women on local, state and federal levels of government. Because Texas borders Mexico, one of the convention topics focused on the immigration situation in Texas. Carole Keeton Strayhom, Texas comptroller and candidate for governor, gave her views on immigration and strongly stated that she, “adamantly opposes giving amnesty to illegal immigrants.” One of the workshops dedicated part of its agenda to the medical crisis caused by the illegal immigrant. U.S. Sen. john Comyn, speaking at one of the awards banquet, discussed his Immigration Reform Bill that he believes will significantly reduce the problems die country faces at the border, which have an impact on security and economy. Gov. Rick Perry was the keynote speaker at the dinner held at the USS Lexington on Veterans Day. I Ie kept his speech clear of campaigning. I Ie did, however, distribute campaign cards asking for donations and Perry 2006 buttons so that those in attendance could have availability to his literature. The eight delegates from BAR-W attending the convention were Susan Abelow. Emma Brann, Barbara Brodeur, Sonja Heldt Harris, Monica Marin, Colette McDermott, Hazel Roman and CarlynTownsend. BAR-W’syoung Republican, Tiffany Marin, an affiliate member, also attended the sessions.
