We are the Republican model of personal accountability. We take care of ourselves, our family, our family of faith, and our community. In the event that all of those fail, we provide tax dollars to provide the final safety net for those that need a hand.
There’s been lots of talk and now it’s time to sort the rhetoric from the record. On Tuesday, please join me in voting for the best candidate in each position to represent our party in November.
If you have questions, please give me a call at 817-594-5029. If you need a ride to the polls, please call headquarters at 817-599-0711. Please vote in the primary. The process is incomplete without you!

If you multiply that by 18 years, the numbers are staggering. It also will draw a clear picture of why responsible management is key to keeping taxes from going up and up and up. Tick-tock …
