Republican Precinct Chairman

2018 Republican State Convention
 Updated on Tuesday, Jun 19, 2018

The state chair race at the Republican State Convention this year was the inevitable conflict between two current powerful, but opposing philosophies in the Texas Republican party. There are obviously more than two philosophies that are represented in Republican thought, but parties by definition coalesce ideas that many people can support.

For instance, the Democrat party has coalesced their platform on the idea that abortion, the willful killing of a baby's life in a mother's womb ought to be lawful. There are Democrats I know who cringe at this, but since there are other hot button issues with them that transcend this issue, they have decided to coalesce with a party that goes against their beliefs and values in this area.

It's the same for all of us with any party, there will be areas of disagreement. Each of us individually have to resolve weighing the effectiveness, and the party/candidates that most closely promote the moral worldview we have freely chosen to believe.

I have read quite a few articles, and talked to quite a few people in regards to this race. I have personally met with Cindy Asche and James Dickey. I have read their financial statements. I have listened to them in various forums, and read their campaign literature. It is my opinion after this research that the choice made at the convention will have the best chance of promoting transparency and integrity in our party's leadership. We did not elect a person who is perfect, but then again, no one who was perfect was on the ballot.

Stones will be thrown by some regardless of who was chosen because both candidates in one way or another represent a philosophy and ideas that they have rejected based on their personal morality and worldview. That's OK. I believe the party has put our best foot forward with the convention's choice.

Having said all of that, I am including numerous article links that have been written in the past couple days from various perspectives. They are good reading, and cover much of the nuances of this race for the heart and soul of the Republican party of Texas.

If you are interested in anything in particular, you can email me and I will try to answer as best I can, or tell you I don't know and help you find someone that may be able to answer your question. Here's to the free press:

Where was the precinct website the last month or so?
 Updated on Tuesday, Apr 24, 2018

Some may have noticed that this precinct website was not available for some time right after the Primary Elections. The reason was that the host provider for this website was sold to another company some time last year.

The new company owners for the old host provider chose the time right around the Primaries to make significant changes to their website hosting plans which broke some of the security coding on the precinct website. The time period from then till now was a very busy time period for our family, and so I was not able to get back to migrating the precinct website to a new host provider till just recently.

The new host provider has been excellent, providing better and faster service than the old host provider, and the website interface standards were more up to date and support the code I write for this website better. The old host provider was not able to respond to my help tickets for several weeks, whereas the new host provider responds in minutes.

In addition, the new one has no intention of selling their company to an international firm like the old host provider did. If you are a web developer and want more details, drop me a line! Anyways, sorry for the inconvenience that some of you have expressed for the website being down. I look forward to continuing to serve this community and precinct!
