The Presidential election on November 3rd is fast approaching - now is the time to make sure you are informed before you go to vote!
Texas no longer has straight party ballot voting - so every race has to be marked or the Republican candidate in that race does not get voted for. So it would be best to become familiar with the down ballot candidates BEFORE entering the voting booth, whether you are voting early or on election day. The candidates are all listed on this website on the Voting - Current Elections buttons. Click on Voting, and a Current Elections button will appear. From there click on Current Elections, and the list of candidates for each given office that will appear on the ballot will be listed. From now till the election I will be posting information about the candidates on the Current Elections page. Clicking on the candidates name will access specific information I have posted that is relevant in my opinion to the race. You can download my recommendations for each of the offices and ballot propositions that will be on the ballot here.
Early voting times and places, Election Day times and places and sample ballots are available by clicking on the Voting button. Please let your friends and neighbors know of this resource! I hope to be passing out campaign literature at your home sometime in the next month or so. For those in apartments, please use the contact form if you wish to receive this candidate information from me in the mail, as I will not be able to access your specific apartment due to security or rules in your specific apartment complex regarding passing out literature door to door.
This will be a great election to put conservative leadership in place in our nation for the benefit of all American citizens that love freedom, liberty and support our Constitution. While government is not the end all answer to a societies issues, it is the means by which we can live safe, productive and beneficial lives that have the freedom to be a blessing to our community.
On Monday, March 23, 2020 the Haltom City Council returned to the Regular Meeting after an Executive Session and voted unanimously to postpone the May 2, 2020 General and Special Election and reschedule it for November 3, 2020, or on an amended date ordered by Texas Governor Greg Abbott. This means that there will be no City Elections in May as usual, but they will likely be held in November. There is more information from the city's website here.
The current Council places up for election are Place 3, Place 4, Place 5 and Place 6. These Council members will continue to serve until the votes in November are canvassed.
If you are not on Facebook, there are various groups that will provide information on the candidates. One such group is called Haltom City Politics. This group has been instrumental in facilitating dialog about city issues and candidates. There is an anonymous mailbox on the site that one has to take with a grain of salt, but it does at times provide a healthy dose of humor. In today's digital environment, a message is better received and worthy of consideration when one knows the identity of the person behind the message. Nevertheless, the website has a steady stream of posts from people who are not afraid of speaking on various issues and who are identifiable as people in the community who care about the community of Haltom City. Some of the best sources of information may be your neighbors who are involved in one manner or another with city staff or current or past leaders. I believe this community is making good progress with the philosophy and direction of our current leaders. There are other opinions on how to run the city out there that you will find. Do the homework of finding out their history and their motivations for what they say. You may find that what some articulate may actually be more self-serving than serving the city's best interest when money trails are followed, including real-estate interests and personal relationships.
There is a contact form on the website now that makes it easy to contact me. The contact form is available in the Voter Resources button links.
A Republican Precinct chairman is primarily meant to render service to any who are seeking information about Republican candidates and ideas, and serve as a representative of the party for the local area. With the advent of the internet, information is significantly more available than in the past. This website serves the purpose of providing information and resources for any who desire to be more effective in promoting and voting for a government that is of, by and for the people according to the U.S. Constitution and the values Republicans share in their party platform. Please use the contact form if I can be of service to you in understanding any part of this process of choosing and electing good leaders and preserving and encouraging good government in our city, county, state and nation. Thanks for your interest!
