Fredericka Phillips elected Vice Chair of the Texas Democratic Party
Fredericka Phillips was elected Vice Chairman of the Texas Democratic Party at the party’s convention in Dallas last week. Phillips is a member of the Fort Bend County Democratic Party and president of the Southwest Suburban Texas Democratic Women in Sugar Land. She is a long time resident of Sugar Land.
“Having Fredericka Phillips elected as vice-chair of the state party gives Fort Bend a giant boost toward turning blue,” said Don Bankston, Fort Bend Democratic Party Chairman. “She brings intelligence, class, and a fighting spirit to the job. She believes in the Texas values of hard work and playing by the rules. Although we, in Fort Bend, are especially proud of her accomplishments, this proves that Texans all across the state recognize her leadership skills.”
Phillips, a native Texan, is a mother, a lawyer, and a businesswoman. She is also an honors graduate from Lamar University and South Texas College of Law. She looks forward to serving along side State Chairman Gilberto Hinojosa. Her term begins immediately and runs for four years.
During the convention, Don Bankston, Rodney Griffin, and Susan Bankston were all three re-elected to their position on the State Democratic Executive Committee.
Fort Bend Democrats also scored well on the prestigious Chairman’s Grassroots awards. Deron Patterson of Sugar Land, Claretna Vaxter of Richmond, Jeff LaBroski of Richmond, Farhan Shamsi of Katy, and Kyle Longhofer of Richmond were all presented with the award. Longhofer was also named ID coordinator of the Texas Voter Expansion Program.
“Fort Bend came home energized and excited to get to work,” Bankston added. “Our headquarters at 12999 Murphy Road in Stafford is up and running every day.” The Fort Bend Democratic Party maintains a website a www.FortBendDemocrats.org.
