艾伯特到中國城 華人爭睹 (March 11, 2016)

[Quoting the article in length]

德州亞裔共和黨協會10日晚在休士頓中國城金山酒家舉行慶新年活動。州長艾伯特親臨現場與來賓互動,並稱會把德州建設為全美最自由最強大的地方。

艾伯特州長到華裔社區,在華人圈引起不小轟動。活動當晚高朋滿座,諸多華裔都想一睹州長丰采。艾伯特首先觀看中國新年傳統舞獅活動。他表示,這是他第一次給獅子發紅包並且沒被吞掉,幽默言論引得現場笑聲不斷。

艾伯特對德州亞裔共和黨協會的貢獻給予肯定。他表示,正是協會的努力,亞裔在德州的聲音更大更有效。同時,共和黨在德州影響力也日漸增長。他在競選州長時,哈瑞斯縣得票率超過50%、福遍縣超過60%便是最好佐證。

艾伯特說,他喜歡多元化社會。他的夫人是德州歷史上第一位西班牙裔第一夫人。他與夫人來自不同文化背景,婚姻牢靠的秘訣源於共同的信仰。他與夫人都堅信共和黨的價值觀,追求公平與自由。他相信在座的華裔也是如此,公平與自由讓他們獲得追逐美國夢的機會。

德州亞裔共和黨協會副主席Andy Nguyen表示,新年對於亞裔來說有重要意義,很榮幸能與艾伯特同歡。活動籌畫人之一張晶晶表示,活動得到許多華裔積極響應,位置早早被訂滿。

2016 TARA Lunar New Year

Texas Asian Republican Club of Houston was honored to assist our parent organization, Texas Asian Republican Assembly, in hosting Governor Greg Abbott here in Houston on March 10, 2016. We entertained fellow Asians and Republican friends with over 25 tables at Kim Son! The governor joined us and delivered an uplifting remark on the values of the Republican Party: service, family, and opportunity. We thank the governor for taking the time to support the growth of the Party and the Asian community here in Houston.

To all our friends who attended the evening, we thank you for your attendance and your continual support.

Please see pictures from the night at the Texas Asian Republican Assembly website.

TARC Board Member Martha Wong helped cut ribbon on new Hogg Middle School library

Please note: this blog post is an extensive quotation of the original article and is not written by an officer or representative of TARC. The original article appeared in Houston ISD blog on 01/26/2016.

New principal plus new librarian equals new library for Hogg MS students. When Angela Sugarek took the helm at Hogg Middle School in the summer of 2015, one of her priorities was to continue the work of her predecessor. Her goal: to have a fully functioning library, complete with its own certified librarian.

That dream became a reality recently, when the campus celebrated the complete renovation of its library with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Jan. 21. The library at Hogg is now state-of-the-art, with warm wood accents, rolling shelves filled with tempting and informative titles, and a presentation area that invites students and teachers to linger while they learn.

“We are excited to be giving our students a newly renovated library managed by our amazing full-time certified librarian,” said Sugarek. “We believe in the power of reading to change students’ lives and we know that strong library programs support literacy.”

TARC Executive Board

Santa, Dumplings, Karaoke: Oh TARC Christmas


The Texas Asian Republican Club of Houston (TARC) recently capped off another successful year with its annual fun-filled Christmas Party. We thoroughly enjoyed seeing and catching up with many of our closest friends and supporters. Harris County GOP Chair Paul Simpson, Fort Bend County GOP Chair Mike Gibson, State Represenative Rick Miller, Alief ISD Board of Trustees, Nghi Ho and Lily Truong, and newly elected and TARC endorsed Houston City Council members Dr. Steve Le and Mike Knox joined us with more than 70 Asian American friends in celebrating the holiday season. Our guests enjoyed a smorgasbord of deliciousness that ranged from honey-glazed ham to pork dumplings. Dozens of toys were donated at the event for Toys for Tots. AND…we had a very special guest from North Pole who crashed our party to entertain the kids! Yep you know the one…

At the gathering, Dr. Martha Wong, our current President for Texas Asian Republican Assembly (TARA), the umbrella statewide organization for TARC – Houston, spoke about the vision of TARA and the importance of engaging Asian Americans. Newly elected TARC Vice President, JJ Clemence, led TARC officer and advisory board members in wishing all attendees happy holidays. State Republican Executive Committee member, Tina Gibson, who chairs the Auxiliaries and Coalitions Committee for the State GOP and is a loyal friend of TARC, provided words of praise and encouragement for the club’s consistent engagement and Asian American outreach. Both Harris and Fort Bend County GOP chairmen gave updates on their respective counties. Long-time TARC board member, Bill Wong, welcomed candidates for office to introduce themselves, many of whom we hope to see again in the future.

Not only did we have Santa, we also had our very own Christmas-themed Karaoke station! If you’re saying, “oh man, how did I miss that?” Well, put a reminder on your calendar NOW for next year! We would love to have you.

TARC wants to sincerely thank all attendees who made the time to come out and celebrate the season with us. We truly appreciate your support and friendship. We look forward to seeing y’all back with us in 2016 re-energized and ready to engage!

From all of us at TARC, we wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and happy holidays.

P.S. We have a new officer board for 2016. E-meet them here and in person at our next gathering.
