Joe Straus supporters list??

#1

Post by Mike1951 » Sun Feb 21, 2016 1:37 pm

I'm actually very satisfied with my State Rep and he has the NRA endorsement.

But I was wondering if there was a source to find a list of those who keep electing Straus as Speaker.

If my Rep is one, I might seriously consider a conservative newcomer.

Rep. Rodney Anderson, District 105
Rep. Dustin Burrows, District 83

Rep. Bryan Hughes, District 5
Rep. Mark Keough, District 15
Rep. Stephanie Klick, District 91
Rep. Matt Krause, District 93

If your rep isn't on that list, then he voted for Strauss :???:

There was quite a long thread going on about him in the opening days of the Legislature:

Good list. I sent my rep a message saying because of his vote for Strous, he will not get my vote in the primary.

I appreciate the list.

Guess I'll be voting for the newcomer.

Sad because my Rep has been on the right side of everything else that mattered to me.

If Sylvester Turner was the opponent then Straus was overwhelmingly the lesser of two evils. We need a conservative to challenge.

Sylvester Turner was in the 84th. He resigned to run for mayor of Houston. He is now inflicting his damage on the city.

You are correct. :tiphat: Since I did not see him listed in the roster of the 84th. Legislature, I didn't dig deeper. I should have....

He's listed on page 22(voting results) of the House Journal Proceedings of the First Day, of January 13, 2015:

And my condolences for Houston.

My rep Bill Zedler voted correctly and as such received my vote again.

I've asked King about this; it was more fun talking to my dog about gravitational waves. At least she (my dog) understood.
