Wayne Faircloth, to me, is an honest and effective state representative. Our state representative, first of all, is accessible, he listens to the requests of people, and then he moves forward to enlist the support of the house to better his district.

These are some of the goals I have personally seen him accomplish:

Sponsored legislation that created a baccalaureate program for Galveston College and College of the Mainland in applied sciences, technology and nursing.

Provided Texas City Independent School District and La Marque annexation gap funds totaling $18 million.

Helped Galveston's park board with funding for beach replenishment.

Successfully fought for Texas windstorm insurance reform.

Fought for local government control and stopped unfunded mandates.

The above mentioned points are just the tip of the iceberg of what Faircloth has done for our community. One of the most important jobs Faircloth did in this last legislative session was to support our local community by standing firm, again and again, against statewide leaders who wanted to supersede our local laws. He successfully fought to stop regulations that would have undermined the progress we have made to our tree ordinances and our short-term rentals.

Re-elect Wayne Faircloth on March 6.

Wait till you see all of the amazing things that Mayes Middleton will do for you when he is elected! Not just your district, but the entire state! He is not "bought and paid for" like Fakecloth has always been!
