Missouri City, Texas – April 07, 2010
I have received many tens, if not over a hundred contacts from members of our community regarding one of my opponents. Due to the shear volume I felt it wise to issue the following statement.
On behalf of myself and members of my campaign, I applaud and support the efforts of all those who promote freedom and oppose totalitarianism all over the world. Likewise, I consider those who desire to profit from the repression of others as shameful and disgraceful.
To those individuals and groups within our community who have dedicated their time and energy in the pursuit of freedom for others, your actions are both commendable and a shining example of true patriotism. Authoritarianism, totalitarianism and oligarchies must be opposed as a matter of principle. The spirit that founded this nation lives on in your example to others.
There is little that I may accomplish as a representative to city council with respect to your goal. However, I can relay that I will oppose any effort to entertain, sponsor or recognize any representative from a totalitarian / authoritarian regime in our fair city. If ever an effort is made to fly a flag that represents repression in or at any of our public facilities, I will oppose such a move with all my resolve.
