The extreme politics that dominate Texas right now has everything to do with the Texans who do — and the Texans that don’t — show up to vote.
How did the Tea Party become such a potent force? Well, in part, those voters showed up all the time, particularly in low-turnout, off-schedule runoff elections.
In the wake of last year’s presidential election, folks want to know and continually ask me what they can do to protect what we hold dear about our state and country.
My answer: Be there — every time. Show up — every chance.
Vote. Every time, every chance you get. Make a habit of it. Learn about the issues and make sure your voice isn’t lost.
The best resistance is persistence.
Here’s your chance
Election Day is fast approaching. I know, it’s not an even-numbered presidential year but important things will be decided on Nov. 7.
There are important bond elections going on all around our community, including Austin ISD, Travis County, and Bastrop ISD. I support these investments that support our public school students, improve public safety and create new green space.
Be persistent. Be there. Show up.
