Texas Family Project Endorses Ira Bershad for Denton County Democratic Party Chair

Updated: Feb 13, 2020

Texas Family Project is proud to endorse Ira Bershad for Denton County Democratic Party Chair.

Denton County can be found in North Texas and is the 9th most populous county in Texas. Like most suburbs in Texas it is known to be a conservative county despite the fact that its the county seat, the city of Denton, is very left leaning. However, in 2018, for the first time in 34 years, Denton elected a Democrat to a Texas House seat. Denton also elected a Democratic Justice of the Peace - the first county official elected by Democrats since 2004. Denton is one of the counties being watched this election and a strong party chair can help get more progressives elected.

Texas Family Project supports Ira Bershad as DCDP Chair because we know he will help Progressives win elections so they can govern with empathy, compassion and integrity. The DCDP Chair will be responsible for recruiting candidates and volunteers, fundraising, and media relations and public relations. Ira Bershad has an extensive corporate background in leadership and media relations that makes him a great candidate for this position.

Ira Bershad has some exciting ideas for the direction of the Denton County Democratic Party:

"I believe we have been asleep at the wheel in this role and the urgency is high. The goal of the DCDP is to lead the way in turning Denton County and Texas in turning blue. The cost of failure is devastating in the 2020 elections.”

Ira Bershad has been producing tangible results since his involvement in Denton county politics began in 2017. He has been president of the Frisco Democratic Club for over a year and was Communications Director for DCDP for 16 months. In both roles, he has helped bring positive attention to progressive issues and candidates:

"I have helped raise thousands of dollars for democratic candidates and causes. I have developed a strong media presence with political television and print media outlets. They cover our events and that helps us when we recruit and work to get out the vote each election."

Once a month Ira Bershad can be seen on WFAA's "Inside Texas Politics" My Voice / My Opinion. This show has viewership near 400,000 people and he uses this platform to highlight issues important to Progressives.
