More than 500 people attended The Texas Conservative Leaders’ Gala which was held at the Irving Convention Center in Las Colinas, Texas on Saturday, December 3rd.  Out of more than 150 nominations, Tara Petsch was one of only 13 selected and recognized for her leadership in the Texas grassroots movement.  Each recipient was nominated earlier this year by citizen-activists from around the state as best representing the spirit of self-governance.  At the Gala, each honoree was presented with an engraved cavalry sword and scabbard, recognizing their on-the-ground leadership in the fight for a better Texas. Locally, Tara is the Chairwoman of Moms For Liberty-Gillespie County, a member of the Fredericksburg Tea Party and a member of the Gillespie County Republican Club.
