Victoria’s Democratic Chair position is open for next election

Pat Tally is resigning as Democratic Chair, meaning the position is open for applicants.

VICTORIA, Texas – Recently, the Democratic Chair position became vacant. Pat Tally is in the process of retiring and says the position is volunteer based. Therefore, the time put into their daily tasks are based on the democratic chair and their schedule.

Some of the duties involve talking to locals, helping and informing others on voting, doing interviews for the press, working with other party leaders, and overseeing the Texas election code. Here are some tips from Pat Tally.

“You know even just thinking about what kind of a chair do you want and then it’s like what kind of a chair can you have? Because it does take time, you know. Trying to find a chair, the big deal would be to find somebody young with a lot of enthusiasm and that wants to recruit new volunteers and can really get the people out that we don’t really see a lot of. You know, younger people, lower income. That’s who the Democratic party actually wants to have involved,” said Tally.

She also expressed that she enjoyed working with Bill Pozzi, the Republican Chair, when certain tasks required them to work together.

“So we have certain duties that the state says we should provide if we call our county chair, you know. So some of this is pretty standard. You know we’re supposed to have precincts. He has his precincts, I have mine. Those area already divided up. And you have meetings, and you make plans on what kind of things you want to Democrats to get involved in. I’m sure, it’s pretty much the same,” Tally mentioned.

Bill Pozzi said this job is rewarding and that he enjoyed working with pat tally as well.

“I really liked to be party chair because I find things out politically that are surprising to me sometimes. And sometimes, you’ll spend 2 hours a week doing party things, other times you will spend 30-40 hours a week, doing party things. Depending on what the election cycle is and all that. It’s really rewarding because you get an inside to the people and the political process,” Pozzi said.
