Appears Middleton is inclined to support Governor Abbott on anything. I have no real gripe with re Governor but he is not always right . Anyone with this theory should call 1-800-SCAM and line up a purchasae of ocean front property in Ariona.

Doyle, when you are a "shallow thinker" you will only see what people like Wayne want you to see and think. Quit being a sheeple!

An inexperienced kid from a rich family comes in and tries to buy the election. He aligns with the Governor who did everything he could to undermine local control of everything from trees to taxis to taxes. And the rich kid runs on the same kind of platform. The good news is that if the rich kid wins, he'll be running for some higher office as soon as he can so we won't be stuck with him too long.

What are people seeing in him?

Property taxes that are capped encourages local government transparency. We need someone to reign in spending . taxes and budgets. Not exciting or fun. Necessary accountability. The same old results tax and spend without caps is a solution that govenor abbot and Mayes Middleton can achieve. Mayes is best candidate for district and texas. James Henderson

Yes sir, Mr. Henderson!

Carol Dean

Uh, Gary, Mr. Middleton is HONEST! That's the attraction. If you support Straus, then of course Fakecloth looks good to you.

Gary Scoggin

Fakecloth? Did you make that up on your own? Mr. Middleton may be honest. I’ve met him in person and he seems a nice enough guy. I’m more interested in someone that supports local control of taxes, not someone willing to give all the power to Austin.

Mayes Middleton worked in Chambers County to stop a 5% increase in property taxes! The only thing Fakecloth cares about is getting the best deals for his insurance company through Texas Windstorm! Do you know he proposed to reduce the amount of recovery money we would receive because of storm damages??? Thank goodness there were more representatives who rejected his initiative before we were hit by Harvey! Come on, Wayne, try telling the truth for a change!

Great- us folks with property need to keep carrying the load. Bull!!!!

Carol Dean

Do like Ken Clark...is it possible that he has a goat and a cow and a family garden listed on his property exclusions? Would someone let me know? I have read that some people think he is getting preferential treatment.

Gary Scoggin

By the way, you guys do know that Middleton lives in River Oaks. It’s appraised at $4,000,000, day not you? No wonder he can afford to buy his way in. It would be nice if he lived in the district he’s claiming to want to represent.
