Local Democrat, Bill McCann, was recently published in the Bastrop Advertiser on the Paris Climate Change Agreement!

If Democrats are going to win the White House in November, they must unite behind whoever is selected as the nominee, whether it is Hillary Clinton or Sen. Bernie Sanders. That was the key message from State Sen. Kirk Watson, keynote speaker at the Bastrop County Democratic Convention in Bastrop on March 19.
“If we are going to succeed, we need to be united,” Watson told the crowd of more than 100 in attendance. “I’m very proud to be a Democrat right now.”
