Greenings, y'all! Sorry it's been a while since I last had time just to sit & blog. There has been plenty to keep me busy lately, between health issues, computer issues, & occasional gigs. Amid all that, I am trying to get my candidate muscles working again, starting a campaign for US Senate from Texas in 2020. This is the seat that John Corny currently occupies.
Consider this a soft opening for the campaign. We'll have a louder opening soon, after dbcgreentx.org undergoes some refurbishment.
Please Understand the Following
Regarding #7, I am positioning myself as a backup for Progressives in the event that Sema does not garner a nomination. Due to Texas's Primary Screenout law, which HB 2504 did not change, Sema's supporters who actually intend to vote for her in the March primary should not sign my petition. Signing any Green petition (or any other non-major party) would render them ineligible to vote in any other party's primary or conventions. I'm not gonna be the one to tell Sema's fans that she's not likely to win, and thus they should sign for me—not after her 25% showing in March 2018. The Sema-philes I know are pretty passionate about their candidate.
If You Collect Signatures, Know the Rules
I will soon post a PDF of the Petition in Lieu of Filing Fee for the general Texan public to download and print.. At the moment, I am having difficulty in migrating data between my old, tired MacBook and this snazzy refurbished one that I just purchased (on credit), primarily to make job hunting less stressful.
