As always you are very opinionated &
Very persuasive . Your ability to express your thoughts with a very
articulate manner will certainly
be a plus for Mr. Faircloth . He is fortunate to have you as a supporter.

Doyle Beard

This election comes down to whether Galveston County wants a voice in Austin or wants Austin to have a voice in Galveston county. Figure it out and vote.

Faircloth does not listen to his constituents. That is a comment repeated over and over again about Faircloth from individuals. Governor Abbott endorsed Middleton. Apparently, Faircloth does not listen to our governor either.

After reading Jeri Kinnear‘s article, I came away feeling that Faircloth does not listen to individuals because he is busy catering to special interest groups. Kinnear belongs to several groups, so she could have a different experience than most individuals.

Nothing will change if Faircloth remains. Let’s give Middleton a try.

Doyle Beard

As Gov Abbott stated Middleton will be a yes man. "He's got my Back". We got to many of those now.

Doyle Beard

Sounds like the only one MIddleton will listen to is the governor, not the people. We got too much of that now.

Wayne Fakecloth has resorted to mud slinging and lies in his recent commercials and tv appearances. That is a sure sign that he is getting desperate. The lobbyists and liberal groups in Austin are all of a sudden pouring their money into Fakecloths campaign. Why in the world would Wayne now be bragging about his recent endorsement (that he sought) from the ACLU? As a Republican, that should be the last endorsement he would want. Lookout for busloads of voters at the polls! The liberals want to maintain Fakecloth's "yes" vote for their ideas! Keep Texas Red, better yet, turn Austin into a positive, conservative, place that We The People can respect!
Mayes Middleton, fighting for integrity and honesty for YOU!

Doyle Beard

Some people can't stand the truth and call it lies and mudslinging.

Carol Dean

My "bad", it is actually the AFL-CIO that has endorsed Fakecloth!

Diane Turski

I met with both candidates at a candidate forum and I agree with Ms. Kinnear's assessment of them. I also prefer keeping the local voice of democracy with Rep. Faircloth over the distant voice of autocracy voiced by Middleton!

Doyle Beard

Dianne I do agree with you.

Mary Branum

I agree with Jerri and support Wayne Faircloth. Do we want the State to preempt local authority? If so, vote for Middleton. We elect our representatives - who are to represent us; not ride the coattails and be the yes man for the Governor. It was Rep. Faircloth and Sen Taylor who helped prevent across the board State control of almost everything - trees, plastic bags, short term rentals. This meant loss of control at a local level. Each community knows what is best for themselves. Galveston is not Dallas, Austin or Amarillo.

Carol Dean

What else would you expect from dems and liberals? Are you people going to be crossing party lines?

Doyle Beard

Since you don't seem to think people can think for them selves where does that put you? Also I am not a democrat, liberal nor republican, I choose my own candidates to vote for.

Doyle Beard

Right on Mary

James Henderson

Good better best. Mayes Middleton is best.

Remember,we still have a Democratic opponent in November. Please pick a side, help your candidate and let's unify afterwards. Primaries are hard because we have to dig deep, grass root.

Doyle Beard

ONe thing for sure we will get more support frommosmeone
