Now is the time, conservative voters in Houston, to get out there and take the city back. Saturday, December 12, 2015 is the date of the Joint Runoff Election. If you didn't take advantage of the most convenient way of voting - Early Voting - HERE is where you can find all the information you could possibly need to vote Saturday. The weather should cooperate and there is no excuse for not doing what you know you should do.
Republican leaning voters are fired up that the polling data shows a very close race. Think of that - the real possibility of a Republican surge into Houston's governance. City elections, most often described as non-partisan (though actual voters know better) are the ground floor of the policy decisions that affect our lives. Local elections are also how candidates begin to establish political careers. Look at Mayor Parker, for example. She left the private sector, went on to elected offices in city government and is now considered to be a future state wide or national level candidate. Don't you want to encourage conservative candidates to get into and stay in the arena?
The Mayoral race is important. United Republicans of Harris County held a very successful,standing room only,candidate forum before the primary election was held. If you weren't able to attend a forum to check out the candidates, I suggest you go HERE for my recommended choice. *** FULL DISCLOSURE*** I am an officer on the Board of Directors of United Republicans of Harris County. The PAC didn't endorse in this race, or any of the races on the ballot. I speak only for myself.
Just as important for consideration are the down ballot races - those for Houston City Council and Houston City Controller. Please consider voting for both Roy Morales, for Houston City Council, At Large 4 and Bill Frazer, for Houston City Controller. Both of these men are solid, consistent Republicans.
There is hope for the beginning of some real change, Houstonians. Don't just complain about potholes, an uptick in crime and rising taxes. Let's get it done!
