By providing entree to circles of business, professional and community leaders, The Dallas 40 affords its members and invited guests the opportunity to engage the community’s best and brightest in a dialogue that makes a difference.

Do you hear the sound of hoofbeats? We are surrounded by political horseraces!

The outcome of the upcoming local, state, and national elections will have an important impact on our lives and the lives of our children and grandchildren. Indeed, a number of candidates have said that the 2018 midterms may be among the most important elections of our lives.

By the time of our November 12 meeting, the dust will have settled, and we should know who won and lost all of these contests – but we may not fully understand why the votes came out the way they did, and what the election results may portend for the future. Join us to hear the post-election thoughts and analysis of Gromer Jeffers, Jr., one of the leading political reporters in Texas.
