Hutto Resolutions Pass Dozens of Precincts Statewide

Update: I'll be continuing to update the precincts in this post as they come in, occassionally bumping this post to the top.

As we mentioned in a previous post, one of the more interesting parts of Tuesday's caucus process is the resolution process, where grassroots Democratic Party members are allowed to introduce resolutions which can eventually be introduced to the state party platform. Resolutions calling for the closure of the T. Don Hutto detention center was introduced in dozens of precincts in at least five counties.

Although official results haven't been released, thus far I've heard that the Hutto resolutions passed in the following precincts:

Travis County - 136, 152, 235, 239, 250, 274, 410, 424, 426, 427, 423, 442, 431, 315, 334, 345

Harris County - 57, 268, 361, 732

Williamson County
- 427, 425, 357

Brazoria County - 58

Bexar County - 3024, 3098

I assume there are many more precincts, especially in Travis, Williamson, and Bexar Counties where the resolutions were introduced into the party precinct packets. If you know of a precinct not listed that passed the Hutto resolution, please contact me. I have heard of at least one precinct in Harris County that did not adopt the resolution, but overwhelming I've heard positive reviews from precinct-goers who introduced the resolution.

In related news, an International Women's Day protest is scheduled this Saturday in Taylor. Details from an organizer:

The peace walk will begin at 3:30 p.m., Saturday, March 8, at the Heritage Park in downtown Taylor (directions below) and end across the street from the prison, about 1.25 miles away. Please assemble at Heritage Park at 3:00 p.m. We will rally peacefully across the street at the Hutto prison until just after sunset, when we will have a short candlelight vigil and prayer ceremony.
