Another from the press release files. This one is from a guy that deserves to at least have you look at his campaign – you don't get more grassroots than Daniel McCool.
McCool enters the Texas Senate Race
Daniel McCool, a long-time resident of Pasadena, quietly entered the Texas Senate District 11 race in July of 2011, before Senator Mike Jackson announced his departure to run for the U.S. House of Representatives in the new Texas Congressional District 36, and while the other GOP candidate, Larry Taylor of Friendswood, was testing the waters for a run for Congress himself.
Daniel McCool may be a new face to some on the political scene, but McCool has labored for the past twenty-five years as an unsung volunteer behind the scenes on the behalf of many candidates and causes. McCool says that he did this because he knew his efforts could make a difference for others. Such an effort may have played a role in 2010 when he was one of only a few people who actively supported an unknown candidate named Jack Morman, who is now the Harris County Commissioner for Precinct 2.
McCool is a twenty-one year veteran of the Harris County Sheriff’s Office. He says that his connection to everyday people is his strongest appeal and that he is not a “tainted politician”. At his recent campaign launch party, McCool said, “I have spent my life as a public servant, first to America as a soldier, and currently to Texas as a Peace Officer and as your next State Senator, it’s my job to continue serving you and not the special interest groups. I will not allow the strings of the lobbyists, nor their money, to tie my hands from representing my constituents.” McCool continued by telling his supporters that “our Texas leaders will have to face some very real and possibly extreme budget concerns in the next legislative session and I want to insure citizens and small businesses are the ones being represented.”
“I know one person can make a difference because I make a difference in people’s lives every day,” said McCool and further stated that, “I believe in a fiscally responsible government, an individual’s liberty, securing our borders and in private property rights. I pledge to represent true conservative principles and I will put citizen’s interest first. I will do my best to help Texas continue being the best place in the world to live. I believe what’s right for Texas is right for America.”
This is Daniel McCool’s first attempt at an elected public office, although he serves as the State Treasurer for the Texas Crime Prevention Association, which is a statewide, multi-region non-profit which educates citizens, businesses, and law enforcement officers.
Daniel McCool is married to his wife Lisa and they have two children Jacob (7) and Abigail (4). Lisa also works as a Deputy Sheriff in Harris County.
