Been out of the country for a few days and I guess I should sit down and write this post. We are in the middle of a run-off election for the State Senate race of district 10. Your choices are Konni Burton or Dr. Mark Shelton. I am endorsing Dr. Shelton and I will post several reasons why I have come to this decision:
Konni Burton supports
. That’s right, the rifle toting right wing radical gang that goes around scaring everyone in Jack-in-the-Box, Chipotle, and Chic-filet. They have disrespected our police officers, threatened their families, made remarks concerning my family, violate First Amendment right for others and disobeyed our laws. She is also associated with the ultra right wing Tea Party. Is this the type of reasoning you want to send to Open Carry Tarrant County ? Mark Shelton is not in support. Austin
Konni Burton opposed the school bond issue that passed by 72%. Do you think that
will get any state funds and representation for educating our children? Mark Shelton is in support of education for our children. Tarrant County
Konni Burton is opposed to high speed rail. She stated this on television. 10 billion dollars of private money will build this project and it will go from
Houston to Dallas, but Burton will not support it continuing to Ft. Worth with a stop in . No support from her here either. Mark Shelton is in support of this project. Arlington
Konni Burton is against the 50 year water plan. That’s right, people are coming to the metroplex daily and we are going to have to plan ahead to get water to them. There is a pipeline from East Texas lakes to
Tarrant County and she will go to to stop its construction. So much for forward thinking. Mark Shelton is in support of this project. Austin
Konni Burton, while being against encouraging economic development, and not supporting projects like AT&T Stadium and the Ballpark at
, she holds out her hand to take money from Empower Texas PAC ($55,000) and Texans for Lawsuit Reform PAC ($25,000) and Texans for Education Reform PAC ($10,000). She has no problem taking PAC money from special interest groups. If elected what do you think they will want? Arlington ’s money has come from Alice Walton (Sam’s daughter) and the Texas State Realtors ($25,000) each. Shelton
After the looking at the platform and the overall representational thinking of the candidate, I look at the campaign.
Shelton signs are down or missing all over the County but the signs are untouched. This is a dirty, cheap political trick. Although it might not be Burton Burton doing it personally, I’m sure that it is her supporters, and I can’t condone that type of behavior in Arlington or in . Austin
I’m going to the polls today and voting for Dr. Mark Shelton.
