Brian Thompson for TX-HD 46

Posted on 12/29/2007. Filed under: 2008 elections, Brain Thompson, Craddick Democrats, Dawwna Dukes, Texas Legislature, Tom Craddick |


I had the distinct pleasure of meeting Brian Thompson last night and speaking with him at some length about his campaign for Texas Legislature House District 46. Brian is articulate and poised but even more importantly, he believes in representing the people of his district in East Austin and Texas. He is not willing to sell his soul to the likes of Tom Craddick as the incumbent-Dawwna Dukes- has.

Brian will be a welcome addition to the Texas Legislature and the Travis County Delegation. He is the type of REAL Democrat we need not only in Texas but in the United States.

Here are some excerpts from an email I received from the campaign.

Are You Up to the Challenge?

Already, more than 65 people have contributed more than $9000 online to our campaign for change. Unfortunately, it’s going to take thousands more to defeat my Republican-funded opponent.

Our campaign to take a vote away from Tom Craddick and bring real representation to the good people of East Austin is off to a great start. Just before Christmas, more than 125 people crowded into a popular East Austin restaurant to hear that I would seek the Democratic nomination for HD 46, the only house seat in Travis County currently held by a “Craddick D.” The response to my announcement has been tremendous. Unfortunately, given the level of entrenched Republican power we are up against, this is going to take a group effort. It’s going to take a grassroots campaign, funded by real Democrats who believe we live in a democracy, not a Craddick dictatorship.

This race is about the failure of Speaker Craddick to lead the Texas House. My opponent has enabled Craddick’s failed ideology of starving public schools and denying children health care since first voting for Craddick in 2003. My campaign offers Democrats in Travis County the opportunity for real representation by a real Democrat who wants to reclaim a vote and a voice for East Austin.

Thank you for your support,
Brian Thompson”

I hope you will join me in supporting Brian Thompson in his bid to take Travis County and Texas Back for the People of Texas!!!
