The Patriot Award was presented to Alexie Swirsky at the 2024 Lincoln-Reagan Dinner hosted by the Harris County Republican Party on April 26.  Alexie was acknowledged for the work she does to promote Republican (i.e. patriotic) values and in part, to her faithful attendance to Harris County Commissioner’s court. She attends to support the only Republican Commissioner, Tom Ramsey. So many court votes are four to one.

One can only imagine how lonely it must feel, especially when there is no one to even second Mr. Ramsey’s proposals or support his Precinct 3’s needs for roads and other infrastructure.  Because he is the only Republican, the needs of his precinct are frequently overlooked and the residents of Precinct 3 are not given the resources they need.  Money is found for murals painted on downtown buildings and the pet projects of the other Commissioners (like doling out $20 million for guaranteed universal income, $1 million of which is slated for the company doing a comprehensive evaluation first) while ignoring seven years of failed jail inspections.

But on every Commissioner’s court date, Alexie is in the court from early in the morning to late at night with an entourage of other people, sometimes a lot of people! Alexie encourages others to speak on topics important to them and on many occasions has risen to say a few words on the topics she feels are most important. Alexie supports the work that Tom is doing to keep crime and costs down for the county while trying to make Houston a better place to live for everyone in the city.

Congratulations, Alexie!
