The Burnet County Democratic Club will hold a virtual meeting by Zoom at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday, May 19. Guest speaker is Jessica Tiedt, the Democratic candidate for Texas House District 20.
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way the club meets but not its goal.
“Our mission to get out the vote has not changed, but our methods have,” club President B.J. Henry. “We have adapted to social distancing during this difficult time and will be discussing all the new ways our members can stay in touch and stay involved while having fun.
“This is a meeting you will not want to miss” she added.
Tiedt is challenging incumbent Rep. Terry Wilson (R-Marble Falls) in the November 3 general election for the District 20 seat.
She is currently the chief court administrator for Williamson County Precinct 4 Justice of the Peace Stacy Hackenberg. Prior to that, she worked in the technology industry for 10 years.
She is campaigning on infrastructure and election, cannabis, and health care reform.
