WILSON FIRST TO FILE FOR DISTRICT 150 – PROMISES “JOBS, RESULTS, INTEGRITY, NOW
HOUSTON, TX – James Wilson, a local insurance agent and former Regional Director for US Senator Phil Gramm, made his campaign official today. Wilson was the first to file for a place on the ballot for Texas State Representative in House District 150. Wilson will be seeking the Republican Party nomination. Wilson made the following statement,
“Since announcing my candidacy in July of this year, my volunteers and I have knocked on the doors of hundreds of voters in our community. My positive message of ‘Jobs, Results, Integrity, Now’ has been welcomed with great enthusiasm. The people of District 150 have told me that they want more effectiveness and certainty in our state government. The overwhelming encouragement that I’ve received convinces me that the people of this district are eager for new leadership and a fresh approach.
I’ve spent the past five months listening closely to the questions and concerns of our community. Why can’t Texas properly fund public schools for our kids? Why hasn’t the state done more to encourage job creation and economic development? Why isn’t healthcare more affordable for me and my family? Texans deserve honest and practical answers. I’m running because Texas needs serious solutions to these real world problems, now.”
Wilson will be appearing on the ballot in the Republican Primary election to be held on March 6, 2012.

My guess is that Mr. Wilson doesn't have a chance because it is so hard to unseat an entrenched incumbent like Debbie Riddle. But…who knows? Maybe the people of HD150 are tired of rhetorical representation without results. After all, can you tell me one thing that Debbie Riddle has done during her time in office besides get on TV and radio screaming about 'them illegals'? Betcha can't.
