I support and endorse Cindy Burkett for TX-113
There are some dirty politics right here in my little part of Texas, and the really SAD part of that statement is this; the dirtiest of the bunch are some TEA Party loons, some folks I suspect are from Van Zandt County. Folks that have more money than they do sense and have made serious, and in some cases, successful efforts to unseat people that aren’t even in their district, folks that do NOT represent them.
Since 2013, Cindy has represented District 113 in Dallas County and I, and many others are proud to have Cindy as our Representative in Austin. I am proud to call her my friend.
Read the following, it is an email sent out by another friend, Michael Gallops, Mayor Pro Tem, City of Rowlett and Chair, Precinct 2925 then I have a bit more I want to say about these *carpet baggers* and their *guy* in Van Zandt County.
You may have received a mailer from Jonathan Boos claiming that State Representative Cindy Burkett isn’t pro-life and isn’t conservative. That is an outright lie!
It’s a shame that Jonathan lies about Cindy on his recent mailer. I mean it’s bad enough that he’s a carpet-bagger who moved into the district in September 2015 just so he could run against Cindy.
He actually had a homestead exemption on his DALLAS home right up until he moved into a cheap apartment in Garland. Wouldn’t it have made a lot more sense for him to run against the Democrat in the district he lived in rather than moving out of his hometown to run against a conservative Republican?

The reality is it was a VERY pro-life bill. In fact you can read the truth about that bill on this website: https://www.texasallianceforlife.org/…/pro…/support-hb-2351/.
Jonathan never mentions that the scorecards he brags about are put together by an ethically challenged lobbyist who purposely skews the scorecards by selectively picking votes to “score”. In fact, they sometimes score what is called a 2nd vote rather than the 3rd and final vote on some bills – and other times count the 3rd vote – when it boosts the handful of candidates they “support – the ones that kowtow to the lobbyists every wish.
