A Message from the Chair

Deborah Peoples, Chair of Tarrant County Democratic Party

A message from Chair Peoples: 

“After nearly a decade of organization, mobilization, and progress, I am announcing that I will be stepping down from my position as Chair of the Tarrant County Democratic Party.

“Now it is time to pass the torch to the next generation. Tarrant County is young, vibrant, and full of potential. I see my work as Chair as a years-long pursuit of building consensus and reaching out to new communities, and I want my final act to be one that empowers the next generation to continue expanding the tent.

“From the beginning as Chair, I was committed to engaging with folks of all backgrounds. I am so proud of the work we did to create and expand the reach of community-focused committees such as the Educator-to-Educator Committee, the Black Voter Impact Committee, the Latin-X Voter Outreach Committee, the Asian American and Pacific Islander Democrats Committee, and the Labor Relations Committee. 

“I find myself saying this more and more these days: we in Fort Worth and Tarrant County need to look beyond our surface-level differences and unite around a common purpose: helping promote a living wage, providing affordable housing by keeping property taxes in-check, and eliminating barriers to affordable healthcare. That’s a message I think a lot of us can unite around, and I will spend the rest of my days working to make it a reality.

“Now I’m putting all my focus on winning on June 5th to unite us into One Fort Worth. Thank you, Tarrant County. I can’t wait to see what the future holds.”
