Special Election 6th Congressional District
Sponsored by Concerned Republican Citizens
In less than a month one of the most important elections for our time is being voted on. I know you have heard that statement for the past year and thought that election was over. It was over but when our beloved Congressman passed, the Governor called a special election and 22 people signed up. Only 11 are Republicans. The difference in this election is that there is no primary. The chances of 1 person getting 51% of the vote is slim so there will be a run-off election on June 5.
Why am I telling you this? We all need to do our homework so we know who we are voting for. Some of the names are familiar. I have several suggestions for you.
1. Actually read the flyers you get in the mail. Highlight or notate things that you like.
2. When there are opportunities to hear them speak, go and hear them.
3. Attend the candidate forum on Tuesday, April 12, 5:00pm at Waxahachie Civic Center or listen on KBEC live on 1390am ~ 99.1fm. Makes notes on what they say if someone really hits the nail on the head.
4. If you have a question see one of the volunteers, get a 3X5 card to write you question on, give it back to her before 5:45pm and you could get your answer.
5. Lastly vote during early voting or go to a polling place on Saturday, May 1 Election Day.
Remember it's also the time to elect your city and school races as well as special bond elections.
I would like to encourage everyone to check out the Republicans candidates. Of course I'm partial to the Republicans. We are never going to agree on everything. Write down your top 10 important issues. How do the different candidates feel about the issue compared to you? This should help you make your decision.
