After lurking and commenting for ages, I finally have my first diary on Burnt Orange Report.  Hi, everybody!

In 2006, I had reached a point in my life where just voting wasn't enough.  Reading the League of Women Voters Guide to learn about the candidates wasn't enough.  Telling my friends and family to vote wasn't enough.
I was appointed to a vacant Precinct Chair slot after calling the Travis County Democratic Party to volunteer for something, anything...  I hadn't expected to become a precinct chair, but when I was told that there was a need for one in my precinct, I stepped up.  

The more involved I become, the more involved I want to be.

When I found out that there was a Senate District level of government in the Texas Democratic Party, I decided to check it out.  I have been going to the meetings since January of 2007.  What I've learned is, in a nutshell, I can, and want to do this.
