Candidate’s Statement:  I’m a small town doctor that delivered over 3000 babies prior to running for Congress. I have lived in the 26th district for 65 years. I raised a family here and I ran a successful medical practice here for 25 years. I have seen the effects of policy, both good and bad, on my friends and neighbors and carry that experience with me to Congress. I still believe in that quaint notion that we have a government with the consent of the governed. That is only possible by controlling the size of the federal government. My top priorities are protecting our national security, battling Obamacare, reigning in our national debt and replacing our current tax system with a fair flat tax. Our country faces challenges and adversities which demands decisive leadership. As in the past, I believe we will rise to the occasion and emerge as an even stronger nation.

Why am I running? I am concerned with the safety of US Citizens. I am concerned with our 18 Trillion dollar debt. I am concerned with the lack of influence of “We the People” in Washington. I am concerned with the disregard of our United States Constitution. I am concerned with the lack of leadership in Washington. I have the experience, personality and courage to get things done. Thanks for Voting Krause for House.

Candidate’s Statement:  As a pro-life physician, constitutional attorney, custom homebuilder, and investigations and security business owner, I’m running to stop the unprecedented economic and moral decline in our country.  I have a 20-year background in the Republican party as a precinct chair, area leader, committee chair of the senatorial rules committee, and member of the state party rules committee.  As a physician and attorney, I have the knowledge and experience in the medical field to take action on healthcare issues (Obamacare).  As an attorney, I have the knowledge and legal expertise on economic issues facing the next session.  As a contractor and small business owner, I realize that the economy needs a kick-start and a jobs program.  I know when to create jobs and how to build business.  I will fix the broken immigration system, limit government, and return government that is of the people, by the people, and for the people.

Candidate’s Statement: Spanning both Dallas/Tarrant counties is CD33, the “barbell district.” 65% percent Hispanic, 15% Black, and typically voting Democrat, the district has special needs. Only 58% earn high school diplomas. It has a $35,000 median household income for a family of four, down $1,000 from two years ago. Despite Obamacare, 40% still have no health insurance. Unemployment is 8.8% compared to only 4.1% in DFW. Democratic incumbent Marc Veasy does little to help. As a small business owner in the district since 1982, Bruce Chadwick understands the need to create jobs, fix immigration, and protect family values. Bruce is a keynote speaker, entertainer, illusionist, writer, and special effects design consultant. He is also a bi-vocational minister with BA and MA degrees from Baylor University, and a Master of Divinity degree from the Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. Please pray for the Chadwick for Congress campaign and help reach the minorities in Texas.

John Greytok

Website:  www.johngreytok.com

Facebook:  John Greytok (Public Figure)

Twitter:  @greytoktx

Candidate’s Statement:  John Greytok is endorsed by former Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson.  Commissioner Patterson chose John because of his qualifications, his commitment to conservative principles, and because he believes John will do the best job serving the interests of all Texans in this important position.  John Greytok will focus on preserving Texas energy jobs by 1) pushing for a temporary severance tax abatement (as we had in the 1990s), 2) implementing a moratorium on all new regulations, and 3) shutting down the RRC’s corporate welfare program that favors one energy company over another.  John Greytok got into this race because he was upset over the Obama EPA’s irrational war on fossil fuels.  The Railroad Commission can be a critical tool in the fight against federal overreach.  We have the right under the 10th Amendment to make our own decisions (if we have the will and determination to force compliance with the Constitution).

Candidate’s Statement:  I served 13 years in the Air Force, and now I’d like to continue serving as your next Railroad Commissioner.   Obama’s EPA is doing everything in its power to destroy the oil and gas industry in Texas.  Despite his efforts, Texas has remained a world energy leader, and made the US energy independent for the next 2 generations.  This campaign comes down to who you think can do the best job.  I am the only person in the race that saved taxpayers 100’s of millions, and been in emergency situations where lives were at stake.  The Railroad Commission requires leadership because we are in a state of emergency in the oil and gas industry.  We have to do everything in our power to push back against the feds.  I’ll fight for you just like I did in the skies of Iraq and Afghanistan.  I look forward to your support.

Candidate’s Statement:  It has been my sincere privilege to serve on the Texas Supreme Court since being appointed by Governor Perry in 2010.  I have a proven record of exemplary service.  With a total of 28 years judicial experience, including over 20 years as a trial judge in Fort Worth, I have served on this Court for 6 years and have written on a vast number of complex legal matters including oil and gas, contract interpretation, commercial, corporate and securities, tax, torts, family and probate, civil procedure and evidence.  As a scholarly jurist who has studied under Justice Antonin Scalia, I am a textualist who believes strongly in judicial restraint and who never legislates from the bench. My opponent has no history of service on the Supreme Court.  I take my oath to strictly and conscientiously apply the law in a methodical and scholarly manner very seriously.

Candidate’s Statement:  Pick Rick for Supreme Court if you want the Constitution guy endorsed by Dr. James Dobson, Chuck Norris, Kirk Cameron, David Barton, Kelly Shackelford, Cathie Adams, Judge Paul Pressler, & conservative leaders across the state. I was drafted to run because our religious liberties and other constitutional rights are being challenged in the state courts like never before. All the candidates have the necessary legal experience, but these legal champions and other leaders are all saying Rick Green is the only one with the business and constitutional experience we desperately need on the court at this time in our history. If you’re tired of judges acting like legislators, if you want to restore separation of powers, then you need a Constitutional Watchdog on the court. There are 2 Green’s in this race, so if you want to restore our constitutional republic, then make sure you Pick Rick!

Candidate’s Statement:  I bring outstanding credentials and strong conservative values to the Supreme Court of Texas. Endorsed by Governor Greg Abbott and Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick, I am a conservative judge with a 17-year track record that proves it. Having served on the trial bench, the court of appeals, and the Texas Supreme Court, I have the judicial experience it takes to do the job well. I have ruled on thousands of cases, authored hundreds of published opinions, and consistently received high marks in judicial evaluation polls. More than a dozen organizations have honored me with awards for leadership and service. Most of all, I understand a judge’s role in our constitutional design. Judges should not legislate from the bench. Policy decisions belong to you – the People – not to judges. Texans who know my record know they can count on me to uphold our Constitution – for that is a judge’s highest duty. http://www.evaguzman.com.

Candidate’s Statement:  Our Texas judiciary and constitutions have been under attack by Establishment RINO’s ER’s for the past 10 years. They talk about conservatism out of one side of their mouths while they pour money into judicial campaigns out the other side trying to achieve lawsuit reform though judicial activism.  Unfortunately these ER’s $ have been successful in having the Supreme Court overturn 74% of the jury verdicts it has reviewed, have increased summary judgments by fourfold and have diminished everyone’s access to attorney representation by denied constitutional rights – Texas Art1 Secs.13 & 15 No Excessive Fines & Inviolate Right To Civil Jury Trial.  What the greedy ER’s do not understand is the interdependence between freedom, property rights, jury trials, creativity, new inventions, new businesses and more job creation.  After 11 years of ER’s Judicial Lawsuit Reform we had 295,000 less jobs with 5 Million more Texans.

Candidate’s Statement:  I will bring to the Court of Criminal Appeals a fearless integrity and an entire professional career committed to the improvement of the criminal justice system, as a prosecutor, judge and teacher.  I am board certified in criminal law and the only candidate that has extensive involvement statewide in improving the administration of the criminal justice system. From addressing disproportionality, to training experienced judges, to addressing legislative issues, to training the bar, no other candidate in this race can come close to my accomplishments. In the 16 years I have spent on the trial bench, I am consistently the top rated judge in Collin County, rated far better than either of my opponents. There are many challenges facing this court. We must have a judge with the background to do the job and the backbone to stand-up for what is right. I am that judge.

Candidate’s Statement:  After the 2014 elections, conservatives lost control of the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals. Therefore, it is important that Republican primary voters elect a conservative in the race for CCA Place 5. As reflected on my campaign website, I am the only proven conservative in the race. I am a recognized expert on the Texas Constitution, have significant legislative experience that the other candidates lack, and am the only candidate in the race with prior high court experience. I served as a Texas Supreme Court justice and authored numerous opinions. My conservative judicial philosophy is an important qualification.

Candidate’s Statement:  As our Republican State Representative, Charlie always fights for our values.  Last session, Charlie brokered a $4 billion tax cut and passed a balanced budget.  When Washington failed to secure our border, Charlie led the fight in the Texas House to protect our families from the threat of drug gangs, illegal immigration and terrorism.  He passed the largest border security legislation in Texas History – placing 250 new troopers, new monitoring aircraft, and high-tech surveillance to secure the border. Committed to education, Charlie cut overbearing STAAR tests and enhanced local control of our schools to ensure our kids receive a top-quality education.  For his strong, consistent pro-growth voting record, the Texas Association of Business named Charlie a “Champion of Free Enterprise.” A former U.S. Marshal, Charlie is ‘A’ rated and endorsed by the NRA and is 100% pro-life. With Charlie, we’ll always have a strong conservative voice in Austin.

Candidate’s Statement:  I have never held public office, but like most people, I am fed up with the direction of our nation. I am a Christian, husband and father to 4 young children. I am a successful small businessman who understands the burden of government regulation. I believe we need elected officials on our side who will fight for our Constitutional principles and religious values. After all, those are what made this country great. I think the most critical problem facing HD-99 is having a representative who gets failing grades by conservative groups across Texas, because he is in bed with the special interests and lobbyists and votes with democrats more than republicans. My solution is to replace him with someone who will champion conservative reforms that will lower taxes and spending, dramatically reduce illegal immigration and make our schools the envy of the nation.

Candidate’s Statement:  A court of appeals decides whether the courts that conduct trials made a proper decision.  It is often the last opportunity to correct an injustice that happened at trial.  I am uniquely qualified to serve as a justice because of my: 1) 30 years of experience handling complex appeals and the fact that that I am only person in this race board certified in Civil Appellate Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization; 2) service to the legal community; 3) study of what it means to have a conservative judicial philosophy; and 4) hard work for Republican causes and candidates.  I am proud how many agree that I am the best candidate, with endorsements from Stuart and Kathy Lane’s Green Card and the Texas Republican Assembly, among many others, and my victories in the TCGOP Candidate Fair Straw Poll and the Tarrant County Bar Association Judicial Candidates Qualification Poll.

Candidate’s Statement:  What distinguishes me from the other candidates is that I have decades of lead attorney experience successfully resolving hundreds of cases at all levels of the legal system over a wide breadth of law, including eminent domain, construction, contract, property rights, personal injury, and business disputes.  The problem-solving and analytical skills developed as a result make me the candidate focused on substance, as opposed to procedure or form. Repeatedly named one of Texas’ Top Attorneys, I am also long recognized as AV Preeminent.  I am a Baylor Law School graduate and a former Adjunct Professor at Texas A & M University School of Law. As an unwavering Republican, I believe in Integrity, Impartiality, and Fairness in the courts.  I am a well-grounded, diverse practitioner, not a career politician.  I have a genuine enthusiasm and love of the law which I hope to use in service of you on the Court.

Candidate’s Statement:  A good appellate judge must understand three things: how a courtroom works; how to analyze the law; and how to write clearly. After graduating from Rice and then UT law school, my career handling complex litigation matters has spanned over 30 years in Fort Worth; I get what happens at trial—and on appeal, too. I also have the mental nimbleness needed to understand and to solve legal dilemmas: my work has covered such topics as fiduciary duties, real estate, oil and gas, and, most recently, even contract and equitable issues involving Kentucky mineral law. Finally, I’m a “plain English” writer. I’ve briefed at the U.S. Supreme Court level, taught writing in the law-school setting, helped edit Black’s Law Dictionary, and am quoted in The Winning Brief treatise. And as a Fort Worth Republican Women vice-president and head of its “Second Saturday” program, I enthusiastically embrace the conservative cause.

While criminal cases comprise the majority of the court’s docket, most of the court’s current justices came to the court with backgrounds in civil law. As the only prosecutor in this race, I would bring a much-needed perspective to the court. My prior service as a senior staff attorney at a court of appeals included working on a variety of civil cases. Therefore, among the candidates, I am the only one with recent, relevant experience in civil, criminal, family and juvenile law. I have written and lectured on constitutional and criminal law. Trial prosecutors across Texas frequently consult with me about a variety of issues. As a justice, I would work to improve the court’s efficiency and transparency. Among the candidates, I alone can do the job from day one.

Candidate’s Statement:  I am a lifelong Republican who was appointed Judge in 2010 by Governor Perry (with recommendation from State Senator Jane Nelson). I recently won the 2016 Tarrant Republican Party Straw Poll and was rated “Most Qualified” judicial candidate in Tarrant County by the Tarrant County Bar. My endorsements include fellow Naval Academy graduate Roger Staubach, Betsy Price, and many local Republican leaders. My judicial philosophy is that the strength of America is in our Constitution. With this said, judges should apply the law, not make it. After graduating from the Naval Academy, I served on a Navy warship in Vietnam, graduated from Baylor Law School, served as a federal prosecutor during the Reagan administration, and then entered a private practice of law in Fort Worth. Jena and I have been married 30 years. We have 4 children and 6 grandchildren. We attend Hillside Community Church. Visit: www.judgewallace.com.

Candidate’s Statement:  I have served as a Republican Precinct Chair of 3361, in various clubs and committees of the TCGOP, as election judge and delegate to the SD12 and state conventions. I received my law degree from Texas A & M University School of Law (formerly Texas Wesleyan University School of Law) and a Bachelor of Business Administration in Finance from Texas Tech University. I’ve built a successful law practice and title company. As a practicing attorney for more than 15 years in areas of law that impact business, property and family, I understand that a judge has power over life and death decisions, power over liberty and personal freedoms, power over government restraint, our property, our finances, and our health.  As a single mother of three grown children, a United States Marine son and two daughters, I understand the challenges in raising children in today’s culture. I would appreciate your vote.

Candidate’s Statement:  Texans deserve conservative judges who strictly interpret the law, apply it fairly and equally to all parties before them, and never legislate from the bench. My experience in complex litigation, focus on ethics and hard work, and record promoting Texas values make me the most qualified candidate for Judge of the 348th District Court. I’ve been a VP of FWRW for almost ten years, a Precinct Chair, block walker, phone banker, Election Judge, and worked on numerous campaigns.  And, I was voted the winner of the 2016 TCGOP Straw Poll. I have a diverse background litigating cases in areas of aviation, construction and oil and gas; areas common in the 348th. As a result of my work, I’ve been honored as a Fellow of the Texas Bar Foundation, and recognized as a “Top Attorney”, “Rising Star”, and “Attorney of the Year.” I ask for your vote in the Republican Primary.

Candidate’s Statement:  Our judicial system prospers when we elect ethical and experienced Judges who conduct their courtroom in a fair and balanced manner. That’s why Republicans are rallying around Mike Wallach for the 348th District Court. Raised in Forth Worth, Mike is respected as one of Tarrant County’s best and most experienced legal scholars, having tried over 100 civil cases and handled hundreds more. As a conservative, Mike has spent much of his legal career defending individuals, small businesses and professionals from frivolous lawsuits.  He worked with the medical and business communities in 2003 to help draft Texas’ successful tort reform legislation and has since advocated to protect those reforms in both the appellate courts and the legislative arena. With his legal experience and conservative approach to tort reform, Mike Wallach will bring impeccable credentials to the bench. He has the honesty, integrity and ethics needed to effectively serve as Judge. Any*

Candidate’s Statement:  During my first term in office I accomplished many of the goals I had promised: I implemented a reserve officer program to provide a higher level of law enforcement service saving tax dollars. I reformed the overtime pay system resulting in a nearly 65% reduction in taxpayer funded overtime pay. I instituted accountability reforms resulting in enhanced performance, as well as increased productivity and accountability to taxpayers. I increased and diversified annual training to be better prepared. This training allows officers to be familiar with responding to a variety of situations and results in safer neighborhoods for you and your family. One of the most critical issues facing law enforcement today is the negative atmosphere between the public and law enforcement. Having increased transparency and accountability helps establish better community relationships.

Fort Worth Republican Women Dictionary Project:

Fort Worth Republican Women will be delivering dictionaries to 3rd-grade students at West Handley Elementary School this Monday, October 5, at 11:00am. West Handley Elementary School, located at 2749 Putnam Street in Fort Worth, has four classrooms of 3rd-graders and on Monday morning each student will be presented with their own dictionary, courtesy of Fort Worth Republican Women.

Fort Worth Republican Women are encouraged to attend and participate in this worthy effort.  If you are planning to attend, or for more information, contact Karon Manning-Adams, FWRW Literacy Chair, at (904) 654-6417 or at literacy@fwrw.org.

If you can’t attend this event, don’t fret – we will be presenting dictionaries to students at two other elementary schools this fall – Como Elementary School and George C. Clarke Elementary School. Contact Karon if you would like to participate in one (or both!) of the other two presentations.

Thanks to Karon Manning-Adams for all of her work in making this project a success!
