Testimonials

Susan Lavigne – Chair Precinct 54

“You’ve done a remarkable job in bringing the party back from the abyss and making it a healthy viable Democratic Party.”

John Lingenfelder, 2010 Candidate for US Congress 3rd District

“Mike Rawlins and the team he assembled have really turned the Collin County Democratic Party around. Several years ago, the party was a horrible mess and needed a fresh beginning. Then Mike stepped up and was elected to become the new party chair.

Such a change. There is enthusiasm; there are excited volunteers; there are contested primary races; and this party actually has surplus funds. This is not all because Mike did it. But it is because Mike established the environment where willing, intelligent people came together to get things done, that needed doing.

Thank you, Mike. I urge everyone who votes in the March Democratic Primary in Collin County, vote for Mike Rawlins, Collin County Democratic Party Chair.”

Cory Montfort, 2017 Candidate for Richardson City Council

“As CCDP Chair, Mike is tasked with a great deal of challenging objectives. I can personally say, I’ve consistently witnessed his ability to move through different (and often difficult) situations with decorum and thoughtfulness. His willingness to work together as a team and continually surround himself with talented volunteers suggests he is a big part of the reason CCDP has done exponentially better in the recent past to engage our community and get out the vote. We can always improve on things, but I am confident in Mike’s leadership abilities to take us to the next level!”

George Nowik, Chair Precinct 203

“Mike is one of the most tireless, dedicated workers I have seen in a long time. VERY politically adept and works well with groups.”

Vickie Parker, Chair Precinct 16

“Thoughtful, determined, logical, passionate, wise, decades of experience leading to a depth of resources,
I endorse Mike Rawlins for Collin County chair. In this rapidly changing, very dynamic, tumultuous political
time, there is no one else more qualified to lead this democratic county party into the next election cycle.”
