Press Release: 2022 Midterm Election Statement

9AM CST – Austin, TX USA

South Austin Republican Club

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


South Austin voters’ voices were loud and clear on Election Night. Even though the South Austin Republican Club doesn’t align with the results, we want to thank all the candidates that ran, their campaign staff, volunteers, and warriors that worked tirelessly to get out the vote for who we supported.

These next months and years will be critical to saving Austin from the progressive left and making progress for our principles in Travis County. This is going to require everyone to provide effort and resources to dominate the field and turn out everyone we can for the candidates and causes we support.

The hardest challenges will yield the most satisfying victories in times of great adversity. George Washington faced seemingly insurmountable odds when crossing the Delaware River in the dead of winter in 1776. But, with perseverance, focus, and unwavering determination to protect and maintain the principles he found important, we prevailed in one of the most significant ways in American history.

We too have this same chance in Travis County in 2024. The odds may seem stacked against just. The data may not add up. But if we fold now we do a disservice to everything we believe.

Therefore, we can’t back down. We must cross our Delaware River. We must protect what we hold to be true and important.

The fight is not over. We can and will do more in 2024. And, most importantly – We Can Win Austin!

Tell a Worker ‘Thank You!’ Today; Here’s Why: How Labor Day Represents American Patriotism | SARC

“Labor Day is seen as a day of rest for many hardworking Americans.”

James P. Hoffa

You have your burgers and hotdogs ready for grilling. Maybe, you have your favorite beer or chilled beverage in your hand to celebrate the hard work of dedicated Americans across the nation.

Labor Day is one of the most patriotic holidays that have grown out of the activities of the America people.

The Labor Day holiday evolved out of the activities of the developing labor movement at the end of the 19th century.  Labor supporters had developed a tradition of holding parades, picnics and other events to rally strikers or to show support for specific labor issues.  In New York, the Central Labor Union was a group made up of members from many labor unions.  Early in 1882, the Central Labor Union decided to hold a parade and picnic as festival in support of labor sometime in September.  By August, a union committee had selected the park and the date – Tuesday, September 5 1882 –for the celebration and the union passed a resolution “that the 5th of September be proclaimed a general holiday for the workingmen in this city.”  The celebration was a huge success and it was resolved to continue the celebration annually. By 1884, the union had selected the first Monday in September as the official holiday and were urging unions in other cities to celebrate a “workingmen’s holiday” on that date.

Labor Day is patriotic because this is when America celebrates the citizens that work to keep this great county moving. We celebrate the Americans that have endless energy and strife to make this country the best it can be. You are the hard working citizens that keep the great American machine moving forward. Today, on this 138th Labor Day we solute you and all the hard work you put in day in and day out.

Until next year, enjoy the grill and chilled beverage. And, know you are appreciated by all Americans.

“A truly American sentiment recognizes the dignity of labor and the fact that honor lies in honest toil.”

Grover Cleveland
