Democratic Nominee for Texas Governor, State Senator Wendy Davis
Senator Wendy Davis needs no real introduction, as she is the standard bearer for women’s rights, equal opportunity, protection of the public, safe guarding our environment, while maintaining and improving upon the business friendly climate that makes Texas so very special.
Democratic Nominee for Texas Attorney General, Sam Houston.
Sam Houston is vying to be the next Attorney General, running against State Senator Ken Paxton (R-McKinney). Sam is a practicing attorney from Houston who has promised to end many of the lawsuits the State of Texas has filed against the US Government by the current Texas Attorney General, Greg Abbott. Sam believes Texans have a right to know exactly where hazardous chemical are stored. Sam has promised to reverse the current AG’s letter ruling on the release of the locations of dangerous chemicals, putting the safety of our families and children first.
Sam Houston will bring common sense values back to the office of the Texas Attorney General.
Democratic Nominee for Texas Land Commissioner, John Cook
John Cook is the former mayor of Texas’ 6th largest city- El Paso- and he is a former Vietnam Veteran. John is running against political newcomer, Jeb Bush- who is banking on his popular name and deep pockets funded by the oil and gas industry to be the Texas Land Commissioner. The Texas Land Commissioner is an important position because it is the Land Commissioner who is responsible for collecting royalties on oil and gas and other Texas minerals- money that goes into the general education fund. John Cook will restore integrity and accountability to the Texas Land Commissioner’s office and has no ties to the oil and has industry over which he will hold regulatory authority.
John Cook, the right man for the right job as Texas Land Commissioner.
Democratic Nominee for Texas Comptroller, Mike Collier
Mike Collier is a former Plano resident, who now lives in Houston and is running to be the Texas Comptroller. Mike’s opponent is a former State Senator Glenn Hegar, who voted to cut funding for public education – costing 11,000 Texas jobs – after the current Comptroller, Republican Susan Combs, produced a stunningly inaccurate revenue forecast. Mike is the only candidate in this race with the financial and accounting back ground- and business experience needed for this important position in Texas government.
Mike Collier has the finance background and business experience his opponent lacks.
Democratic Nominee for Texas Railroad Commissioner, Steve Brown
Steve believes that the Texas Railroad Commission (RRC) can improve on its promise to adequately support industry growth while also protecting the environment, ensuring public safety, and safeguarding land owner and consumer rights. It is important that we continue the abundant growth of our energy industry, as it’s the engine of our state’s economy. Equally important, the Texas Railroad Commission must have the resources to quickly respond to everyday Texans’ concerns. Steve believes that this agency can once again effectively operate as it was intended— to facilitate energy production while also protecting the interests of all Texans. Steve believes there needs to be a proven public advocate on the Railroad Commission.
Democratic Nominee for US Senator, David Alameel
David Alameel believes in the American Dream because he has lived it himself. He came to America when he was just twenty years old leaving behind his large Lebanese Christian family. David pumped gas and worked in the fields to help his family. He proudly served in the U.S. Army, then worked his way through college and received a Dental degree from the University of Texas. Later he moved to Dallas and founded a network of dental clinics that grew into a multi-million dollar enterprise. In recent years he sold that business and has become a highly successful investor and an expert in financial markets. He is a strong critic of Wall Street and says we must reform current policies “that subsidize big banks and corporations and hurt the middle class.”
The “Your Vote is Your Voice” celebration will be held on the Preston Ridge campus for Collin County, 303 Wade Blvd in Frisco, Texas. The rally starts at 6:oo pm. The event is sponsored by the Democratic Party of Collin County.
