THE WOODLANDS, TX – With only less than a week left to register to vote for the upcoming March primaries, the political season has kicked into high gear, with candidates of all types jockeying for attention, support, and hopeful votes.

Fundraisers, Meet-and-Greets, and Candidate Forums are taking place nearly every day

The ballots this time around will be metaphorically thick with candidates, issues, and items; numerous offices at the county, district, state, and national levels are in the running, and a continued pandemic society and polarizing Washington, DC climate will make for long lines at the polling locations.

Already over the past few days, several candidates have put together gatherings to get to know their planned constituents, and vice versa. On Saturday, Congressman Dan Crenshaw held an open house at his new campaign headquarters on Technology Forest Blvd. The event was catered by the Black Walnut Cafe and featured snacks, speeches, and giveaways.

On Monday, no less than two separate political gatherings took place. Jay Wright, who is currently running for Justice, 9th Court of Appeals District, Place 2, hosted a meet-and-greet at Joe’s Italian Kitchen in Conroe, where the candidate on on hand for an intimate get-together of interested citizens and residents.

A few miles away at the same time, the large-scale Republican Candidate Forum – hosted by the Magnolia Republican Club and the Republican Women of Greater Fishcreek – took place at Bear Branch Elementary school, where dozens of candidates appeared to give stump speeches and answer probing questions.

Whether a candidate is an incumbent or newbie, or in a tight race or running unopposed, chances are he or she will be at one of the numerous upcoming candidate forums and campaign gatherings. Be sure to check out Woodlands Online’s Events Section for listings of political events.
