Republican legislators in Texas consistently throw up roadblocks to Democratic solutions for poverty issues and deepen hardships for Texans.
We're a business friendly, not worker friendly state. This poverty affects rural Texas more than urban Texas I feel. I think we need to be blunt and call ourselves poor, but politicians hide that poverty through slogans of country pride, etc. Most Texas associations lookout for the businesses interests, not worker interests (TX restaurant association, homebuilders associations, etc.). Luckily there's been increased unionization and group voicing, but more is needed.
Tarrant County will raise about $350,000 if past years are an indication....with that they do what?
fund the office and the phones? to what purpose. no one outside of the Party Leadership knows there is a TCDP.
We will know in a few weeks at least if Crystal Gayeden attracted a few more candidates...and no not hunt or read...already running....but SR and SS candidates and JP's and constables. If not she should not run in 2024. Contrary to what she has said she will know how well she did in candidate recruitment well before the deadline.
The State? i will leave that to bigger minds other than to say they have been total failures going all the way back to 1996.
To restate: How would anyone know unless u read Texas Tribune. Certainly the State Party and several county parties say NOTHING and tell voters NOTHING about these issues.
