Inasmuch as 2020 is going to be a very busy political year, many candidates for elective office are not wasting any time in announcing their intentions for the primary next March. Most voters will be looking for recognizable names when they look at their ballots, hence, the more often they see it in the news or on literature and posters, the more likely they are to check the boxes next to those names. Jayne Howell is the Denton County Republican Chairman and she’s running for a second 2-year term in the primary scheduled for March 3, 2020. Howell is a licensed Texas realtor and broker, elected to the GOP Chair position on March 6, 2018. A former Precinct Chair with decades of voluntary service to the community, Jayne (pronounced Ja-nee) has an impressive record of conservative Republican principles to run on.

In the video interview, Jayne tells viewers something about her background, experience and why she wants to continue leading the Republican Party in Denton County. “I have been fortunate to participate in many of Denton County’s service oriented organizations and have a strong belief in the organizational structure. Goals are set, bylaws are followed and the group’s members do the hard work to achieve benefits for the community,” said Howell.

Howell, a fiscal conservative and long-time donor to the Denton County Republican Party, wants to continue using the Party’s committee structure to establish training, voter contact and promotional goals that will educate Denton County citizens about Republican principles and encourage them to utilize their vote to elect Republicans. Ms. Howell has been working to establish active committees and challenging them to set plans for the benefit of the Republican Party. She hears from elected Republicans about their conservative work in government and wants to continue to prioritize spending on Republican education and training to achieve stronger victories in the General Elections.

In addition, she believes focusing resources on results is a key part of her leadership plan. The Republican National Committee, the Texas Republican Party and the Texas Republican County Chairmen’s Association are constantly stressing the importance of training and education. Howell believes Denton County should follow their lead and prioritize training Republicans and educating voters.

“Last November, approximately 96,000 known Republicans didn’t vote,” she said ruefully. “That’s significant! So, we have to wake up our neighbors and let them know how important voting is.”
