Because the Girls State program is entirely non-partisan, citizens operate with mock political parties. They elect precinct, county and state party officials and write their own party platform. The National and Federal parties convened June 18, 2013 to pick their state party officials.
State Federal Party officials are Chair Kaytlen James, Vice-Chair Aryn Cliff, House Whip Maggie Mathis and Senate Whip Natalie Mackie.
State National Party Officials are Chair Annie Sides, Vice-Chair Katelyn Moody, House Whip Claire Steinman and Senate Whip Alondra Ramirez.
For a complete list of party officials, including county and precinct chairwomen, please download the 2013 edition of The Bluebonnet, the official newsletter of the Bluebonnet Girls State program.
