What is Project LIFT?
Project LIFT (Local Investment in the Future of Texas) is a new program of the Texas Democratic Party that works with party leaders and progressive partners to recruit, train, and support candidates – with a special focus on winning local, non-partisan races.
“The guidance and support from our Texas Democratic Party not only helped me win reelection by a big margin after a tough campaign—we elected a full slate of Democrats to the council as well. Now, thanks to the Texas Democratic Party’s commitment to electing Democrats at every level, we can move Galena Park forward and enact real change in our community.”
Esmeralda Moya, Mayor of Galena Park
“The Texas Democratic Party’s help means a lot to candidates like me. I won my seat on the Wimberley ISD School Board by just 3 votes. 3 votes! I learned that success is possible, especially with a strong community of supporters behind you. My campaign was a journey, and it took every ounce of gumption that I had in me to win. But I knew that it was important, and that the Texas Democratic Party was there to help every step of the way. With a seat at the table, I am ready to fight the good fight: to invest in our school children, our teachers, and to help make good on the promise of public education for ALL Texas families.”
Lori Olson, Wimberley ISD School Board Trustee, Place 6
