Proud To Run - May 29 Campaign Update

We are a country grateful for our military. For those who have served, for those who are actively serving, for the families of our military, and especially those who have made the ultimate sacrifice, we offer our gratitude.

Friends and Neighbors,

We are a country grateful for our military. For those who have served, for those who are actively serving, for the families of our military, and especially those who have made the ultimate sacrifice, we offer our gratitude.


QUICK UPDATE

The more I learn about what could be, the more proud I am to run for State Representative.

I spend hours each day listening to local voices from across the political spectrum. And the recurring theme is that we have no effective leadership in Austin. From classroom teachers to law enforcement - retired teachers to medical professionals - lawyers to the business community - civic leadership to our children, our current state representative is not responsive to our local voices.

Over 80% of his funding comes from outside of our district. He follows marching orders from his donors in West Texas. (If you want to see a fun diagram of the web of money and influence that includes our current state rep, click here.)

As an independent, I watched the recent party primaries and runoffs from the sidelines. And one of the lessons learned from those primaries is that Texans are fed up with irresponsible representation being bought and forced upon them by billionaires on the other side of the state.

This past week, I spent some time in Austin with teacher organizations, law enforcement defenders, and advocates for the legal community. And the recurring theme there is the same: they are looking to East Texas to provide good, pragmatic, effective leadership for our region.

I am running for House District 6 (see map below), and I would be representing these neighbors, children, and businesses in Austin. And I won't allow Midland to tell me how to vote.

Being a strong voice for the East Texas taxpayer is not a Republican or Democrat issue, it is common sense. We know we are at our best when East Texas supports pragmatic, responsive leadership.

I hope you will trust me with your vote on November 6th.


JOIN ME!
I'm hosting a Meet & Greet at Stanley's BBQ this Monday, June 4th, from 5:30-8:30pm and would love to see you there.

We'll have new campaign shirts, bumper stickers, and the petition to have my name on the ballot available for you to sign. I greatly appreciate all the support you have shown thus far, but this movement to bring effective leadership from District 6 is just beginning! Bring a friend!


As we move into the summer months, my campaign will keep moving forward. And I will continue sending out updates, meeting with local voices, and preparing myself for the election on November 6th.

Please consider making a donation to build the campaign, offering an endorsement, and letting us know if you want to volunteer.

I look forward to seeing you around town.

To peace,
Neal
