SUGARLAND, Texas, May 16, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Allison Drew and Skip Belt dealt a powerful, eye-opening blow with a combined vote of 51% that forced the Democratic County Chair race into a runoff. With Belt endorsing Drew, there is a new, formidable surge in the Fort Bend County Blue Wave.
As Democratic turnout is waning, Drew’s unique skillset packs a tsunami-like force to reengage, reinvigorate, and amplify Democratic voters’ voices. Drew, former Fort Bend ISD Trustee, is actively involved with the community, its businesses, organizations, educational institutions, and religious entities. Drew currently works as an Enterprise Data Architect and will introduce technology "to work smarter not harder," creating much needed party infrastructure, support, and introducing systems to maximize the Party Leadership’s and Precinct Chairs’ talent. Drew’s experience as a Psych Nurse will mend division, foster unity. Formerly a Wall Street Quantitative Analyst, Drew will infuse practices to increase much needed financial stability. Drew speaks five languages and believes, "Democrats are all-inclusive, and must adapt by speaking in multiple languages, seeking input about how we can communicate to voters more effectively. I’m simply passionate about making strides to improve representation…in political office within Fort Bend County and throughout the state."
