Who is this for anyway?

A real easy issue for me is the Trans Texas Corridor. No one seems to publicly support this thing. I mentioned this in a party email list:
The TTC is a funny thing. No one seems to be for it. No one claims to want
it. No one is claiming to support it it. The cities that would be connected
don't want it, The counties the roads are to go through don't want it. Truck
drivers don't want it. Although I am sure someone will claim its a good idea.
I know of no State Rep. or Senator that will publicly claim that it is a good
idea. All the same no one in the senate or The house is in record to be
opposed to it.

Meanwhile the local paper endorses my opponant because he is "effective and
has experience." Sigh ... and I have the crazy libertarian ideas.
Do the spanish get to vote in the Texas Legislator?

Campain Update

Things are starting to pick up, and I believe we are a real contender. Its no small feat taking on an incumbant for a State Rep. position. I am low on resources and lots of folks don't even know what the Libertarian party really is. Still all and all its not going bad. The Galveston Daily news gave me me some good press about a questionaire I filled out for them. I think I came out pretty well in it. I was also at the forum hosted by the Galveston Bar Assosiation held at the new Galveston Justice Center. I don't know if the folks there really took to my main qualification of "I am not a lawyer." but I mean it, a practicing civil lawyer is naturally going to have conflicts Representing the people of his District. Eilands claim that he is the most experianced may be true but it doesn't hold validity. I will quickly learn my way around, and of the Representitives were freshman at one point. I think after 12 years it is time to move on.

That will be up to the voters to decide.
