October 2014 Newsletter

Village started off this month with a real “bang”… our “Shooting for Victory” fundraiser was a real success with great weather, great participants and it raised great funds for our campaign coffers. It could not have been the success that it was but for the outstanding energy and leadership of our 3rd Vice President – Ways and Means: the incomparable Buffie Ingersoll. She and her event committee did an outstanding job of taking care of all of the details in pulling...

September 2014 Newsletter

I do hope everyone had a restful summer and that you are reinvigorated and ready to get to work for November. There is much to do, both in Texas and nationally, to reverse the course of destruction upon which the current administration is set. We can all rest in December. But do not, for a moment, think that taking control of the Senate means our job is over; indeed it is just the beginning. We will blink and find ourselves in...

By the time this newsletter reaches you we will have seen, and hopefully lived through, the end of the most raucous, double-down dirty primary season that I have experienced in a long, long time. All I can say is, “Thank goodness it’s over”.    I hope everyone had a chance to celebrate victory for their candidates.  But even if our favorite lost in the primary, now is the time to put away our disappointment and work towards getting our candidates elected in...

February 2014 Newsletter

We are just weeks away from the Primary election, and only days away from the start of early voting.  By now your mailboxes are being flooded with political mailers, pieces that are designed to look like mail ballots and slate endorsements disguised as magazines or other non-political literature. Remember our mantra:  Get Informed. Get Involved. Let me add: Be discriminating. Your vote is valuable; be discriminating if you consider using someone else’s guide when you go into the voting booth.  It is well...
