Dave McNeely

Each year the Walker County Democrat Club selects an individual or organization that demonstrates freedom of speech in the spirit of Molly Ivins to receive our First Amendment Award.  The Club has selected Political columnist Dave McNeely to receive the First Amendment Award at the 2020 Dinner.

 Mr. McNeely began reporting on Texas politics and government in 1962, working for the Houston Chronicle, the Dallas Morning News and the Austin American Statesman. Currently, he is the dean of the Texas Capitol press corps in Austin and writes a weekly column focused on Texas politics and published in over two dozen Texas newspapers, including the Huntsville Item.

At the Dinner Mr. McNeely will discuss issues that will become important in the 2020 elections.  And, as a long-time friend of Molly Ivins, Mr. McNeely will tell a few Molly stories.
