Haltom City Council and Birdville ISD Election - May 4, 2019
 Updated on Thursday, Apr 11, 2019

Early voting for the Haltom City Council/Mayor race and the Birdville ISD School Board race starts on Monday, April 22 and ends on Tuesday, April 30. If you have your mind made up, vote early, as this helps good candidates focus their efforts on those that may not have made up their mind. I believe we have a great set of candidates this time that I will be voting for as follows:

Mayor: Dr. An Truong
Place 1: Marian Hillliard (unopposed)
Place 2: Walter Grow
Place 5 (Special Election): Susan Soule
Place 7: Gaye Vanzant

Please contact me if you want to know the reasoning behind my choices. There are good reasons for voting for these candidates over their opponents.

There are 22 home charter amendments on the ballot also. You can find more information about them here.

For the school board candidates, i will be voting for the following candidates:

Place 6: Ralph Kunkel (unopposed)
Place 7: Rev. Kris Drees

Again, there are good reasons for voting for Kris Drees which if you are interested, I can talk to you about why he is the better choice for our public school trustee. Just contact me via the precinct web form, or email or call me.

Good people can disagree on unimportant matters, but there are consequences to a community if unethical people are elected into office. Our country functions best when leaders understand and act as servants and representatives of their community, and listen at least twice as much as they talk. Maybe that's why God gave us two ears and one mouth! This election is important for our community, as we have the chance to send a strong message that unethical, unprincipled people do not have access to corrupting the city we love and it's city staff. Will the citizens of Haltom City recognize that they have a duty to the future of this city by their vote in this election? It is my prayer and hope that they do.

Texas Legislature In Session!
 Updated on Sunday, Mar 10, 2019

The Texas Senate and House 86th Texas Legislature session began on January 8, 2019 and will conclude on May 27, 2019. Every two years, the Texas Legislature meets in regular session for 140 days. Some years, the Legislature holds additional special sessions to address items not resolved during the regular session. In the interim between regular legislative sessions, legislative committees are created to study issues and research information that will help guide future legislative decisions.

This Legislative Session a considerable focus is on relieving property taxes, and that involves changing the way our public schools are funded. HB-2 and SB-2 are the bills that have been put in place to address these concerns. There are not as many Republicans as last Legislative Session, so it will be more challenging to get property tax relief and other conservative initiatives put into law. A good source to hear about the bills, both good and absurd are from Empower Texas. Texas Legislature Online is a great place to search bills by topic, status and many other attributes.

For newcomers to Texas, this is the time to be paying attention to what is going on Austin, and even consider visiting or appearing before a committee on a bill you are passionately for or against. We have two great conservative Legislators representing our Precinct, Representative Stephanie Klick and Senator Kelly Hancock. Both have great staff that are just a phone call or email away.

Texas 2018 General Election Results - Overall
 Updated on Sunday, Mar 10, 2019

Our State Republican Chairman sent out the following shortly after the November election:

Last night we saw the culmination of several years of concentrated effort by the left - and the impact of over $100 million spent - in their dream to turn Texas blue again.

Thankfully they failed to win a single statewide elected office. Congratulations to our many Republican candidates for their victories, including Senator Ted Cruz and Governor Greg Abbott. Overall, Texas voters still recognize that the conservative values Republican leadership has implemented in Texas over the past 15 years provide better results for their families, more jobs and a stronger economy.

Although there were some setbacks, especially in the Court of Appeals, we can be thankful that Texan people by and large have rejected the rhetoric that leading Democrats have used in their recent campaigns. We realize we have much work to do in the next two years to dialog with our fellow neighbors and friends in gratitude for the liberty and blessings we experience with good government leaders in place.
