Growing the Republican Party

One of the  main goals of the Chairman of the Republican Party should be to increase the Republican voter base in the county.  After identifying areas for improvement for Party growth, Chariman Bryan Christ has networked with other conservative communties throughout the county to either bootstrap, or co-found, additional Republican clubs and organizations that could further the Party's reach.  Below are details of each organization Bryan has been involved in creating and their accomplishments: 

1. Hispanic Outreach

One of Bryan's top priorities as Chairman was to actively engage the Hispanic Community, which shares the Party's conservative values.  With trusted Hispanic conservatives, Bryan formed the Hispanic Conservatives of Montgomery County, an actively engaged organization that meets monthly to reach the Hispanic population with the Republican principles.

2. Community Engagement

An actively, engaged, Republican Club is essential to the Party's GET OUT THE VOTE effort.  Before Chairman Christ took office, there was not ONE countywide organization that existed for Republicans to gather.  With Republican leaders, Bryan helped to form the Montgomery County Republican Club which currently hosts quarterly Town Hall meetings in Conroe.  At these meetings, voters hear from, and ask questions, of their Elected Officials and make important political connections.

3. GET OUT THE VOTE - MCTX Republican Victory PAC

You may have seen signs around Montgomery County that encourage the community to vote Republican.  Red VOTE REPUBLICAN yard signs and LARGE four foot by eight foot signs can be seen during General Elections.  This is thanks to the efforts of many grassroots volunteers, who formed the MCTX Republican Victory PAC, that Bryan has worked with to increase the Republican vote in Montgomery County during General Elections.  

The volunteers have raised tens of thousands of dollars to print these signs and placed them throughout Montgomery County.  During the 2020 General Election, they also worked with the Hispanic Conservatives of Montgomery County to send over 30,000 flyers to Hispanic surname households, in both English and Spanish, promoting the conservative principles the Party supports.  It encouraged them to VOTE REPUBLICAN to support their family values.

Disclaimer: There has been an effort by Party dividers to try to slander these fine organizations, calling them the "Chairman's PACs".  Groups raising funds for politics are required, by state law, to form Political Action Committees.  All of these Political Action Committees are non-endorsing, meaning they don't get involved in dividing Republicans by picking one Republican over another.  INSTEAD, they ONLY promote the Republican cause and assist our Republican Party by growing our Republican community.  These divisive tactics are not new and only require a little research to disprove.

Engaging Current Republican Clubs

One of the  main goals of the Chairman of the Republican Party should be to increase the Republican voter base in the county, and accomplishing this goal includes forming alliances with Republicans all over our county.  Chariman Bryan Christ is actively engaged with all of the Republican Clubs that exist in Montgomery County: East Montgomery County Republican Women, Lake Conroe Area Republican Women, Liberty Belles Republican Women, Montgomery County Republican Women, North Shore Republican Women, The Woodlands Republican Women, Magnolia Republican Club, and Woodforest Area Republicans.  Knowing that there is strength in numbers, Chairman Christ has promoted these organizations through the Party website and Newsletter, and by attending functions they organize.  They do a FANSTASTIC job reaching their communities and growing the Republican voter base.

Conducting Elections

The Chairman of the Republican Party has many statutory duties surrounding conducting the elections.  One of them is to appoint Election Judges during the General Election.  In 2020, the county purchased new voting equipment which required the Republican Party to provide over 1,000 election personnel.  Chairman Christ rose to the task, again by understanding there is strength in numbers.  Bryan worked with Party Precinct Chairs, Republican Elected Officials, and grassroots volunteers to seek and hire all needed personnel.  What could have been a disaster allowed the Republicans in Montgomery County to show how united and efficient we are!  More details below:
