Our Mission, Goals, and Objectives

Our mission is to make our East Texas communities better places to live by promoting better public policies in education, healthcare, infrastructure and economic development. We’re committed to broad representation, expertise, stewardship and integrity in government.

Right now BETX is focused on a small number of specific initiatives (e.g. bringing senate candidates to East Texas on an East Texas College Tour) and, more generally, on voter contact and voter education.

BETX is committed to developing a robust contact database and volunteer network in East Texas, and then using that database and volunteer network to secure better public policies for East Texas communities.

BETX is also committed to providing direct support to local candidates who we feel are aligned with BETX's mission and objectives.
