A VOTE FOR MAYOR TOM REID ON SATURDAY, JUNE 10, 2017 IS A VOTE TO KEEP PEARLAND, TEXAS MOVING FORWARD INTO THE FUTURE
MAYOR TOM REID CAN KEEP PEARLAND MOVING FORWARD: Make no mistake about it, Mayor Tom Reid appreciates the vote and support of every Pearlander – from every walk of life and ethnicity. It takes a "SPECIAL KIND OF PERSON" to represent a city as diverse as Pearland – and Mayor Tom Reid is that kind of person. A lot of folks are talking about how Pearland, Texas has grown over the years; but you just can’t have a real discussion about the growth, prosperity and vitality of this bustling city without mentioning the name Tom Reid. After all, when Mayor Reid got involved in Pearland it only had about 4,000 residents – over the years this number has ballooned to over 144,100 today. As an ambassador for Pearland for more than 52 years Mayor Tom Reid deserves the right to exit public office (when he decided to do so) under his own terms. That’s why Pearlanders should "HELP HIM SECURE HIS LEGACY" and reward him with another term to continue building upon his successes; secure his legacy; beat back the forces seeking to divide Pearland; and continue to serve as a steady hand that’s able and willing to move Pearland forward into the future. Early voting will begin on Tuesday, May 30, 2017 and end on Tuesday, June 6, 2017. Election Day is on Saturday, June 10, 2017 – A vote for Mayor Reid is a vote to “KEEP PEARLAND MOVING FORWARD!” So don’t forget to vote!
DALIA KASSEB IS THE RIGHT CHOICE IN THE SATURDAY, JUNE 10, 2017 RUNOFF ELECTION FOR PEARLAND CITY COUNCIL POSITION #7
PEARLANDERS ARE URGED TO PUT PARTY POLITICS ASIDE IN THIS NONPARTISAN RACE: Dalia Kasseb, our choice in the Saturday, June 10, 2017 Runoff Election for Pearland City Council Position #7 is not the “PROHIBITIVE FAVORITE” in this race. Look, many political pundits are simply looking at the election returns from the Saturday, May 6, 2017 General Election and not delving deeper into the “CANVASS REPORTS” for Brazoria County -- this is a common mistake. These reports show Dalia Kasseb perhaps having a little trouble in a “HEAD-TO-HEAD-SHOWDOWN” with a Conservative like Woody Owens in some key areas in a county as conservative as Brazoria County -- where Pearland happens to reside. Make no mistake about it, Dalia Kasseb is going to need a large turnout from "OPENMINDED PEARLANDERS" to win this race. She will need these "OPENMINDED PEARLANDERS" to be willing to put “PARTY POLITICS ASIDE” and “REJECT DIVISIVE RHETORIC” on Saturday, June 10, 2017 to be successful in her bid to make history in Brazoria County. If elected, Pearland, Texas would be getting a "UNIQUELY QUALIFIED BUSINESSWOMAN" as the representative for the newly created Pearland City Council Position #7 seat. And, by electing Dalia Kasseb, Pearlanders would also be sending the world a very strong and clear message that: “THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” is truly a "LAND OF FREEDOM AND LIBERTY” for all her citizens. Please don’t forget that early voting will last from Tuesday, May 30, 2017 to Tuesday, June 6, 2017. Election Day voting will take place on Saturday, June 10, 2017. Don’t forget to vote!
KEY RUNOFF ELECTION BATTLEGROUND VOTING PRECINCTS FOR MAYOR TOM REID AND HIS CHALLENGER QUENTIN WILTZ IN THE SATURDAY, JUNE 10, 2017 RACE FOR MAYOR OF PEARLAND, TEXAS
KEY RUNOFF ELECTION BATTLEGROUND PRECINCTS FOR THE PEARLAND CITY COUNCIL POSITION #7 RACE BETWEEN DALIA KASSEB AND WOODY OWENS ON SATURDAY, JUNE 10, 2017
The "PROHIBITIVE FAVORITE" in the race for Pearland City Council At-Large Position #7 is Woody Owens. However, anything can happen in this race if Woody Owens fails to reach out to voters beyond his current base. At first glance, the election returns look as if Dalia Kasseb should be the clear favorite -- but not so fast! A deeper review of the "PRECINCT CANVASS REPORT" for this race paints a very different picture of what actually happened back on Saturday, May 6, 2017 in the General Election race for Pearland City Council At-Large Position #7. Don't forget that: VOTER PRECINCT 12 and VOTER PRECINCT 26 were won by G.C. Sonny Atkins.VOTER PRECINCT 27 was won by Sherry Stockwell. Keep in mind, VOTER PRECINCT'S 13, 28, 29, 36, 44, 50, 54, 59, 60, 62, 67, 762, and 1134 were won by Dalia Kasseb. Also keep in mind, VOTER PRECINCT'S 46, 47, 51, 52, 61, 537 and 654 were won by Woody Owens back in the Saturday, May 6, 2017 General Election race for Pearland City Council At-Large Position #7. And don't forget that Sherry Stockwell, G.C. Sonny Atkins, and Terry Gray -- three (3) of the candidates who also ran for the newly created Pearland City Council Position #7 seat are endorsing Woody Owens in the Saturday, June 10, 2017 Runoff Election over Dalia Kasseb. Early voting begins on Tuesday, May 30, 2017 and ends on Tuesday, June 6, 2017.

OPINION: Carroll G. Robinson Recommends Bill White, Gilbert Garcia and Tony Chase as Possible Federal Reserve Bank President Replacement

Dr. Renu Khator
Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas
2200 N. Pearl Street
Dallas, Texas 75201
Dear Dr. Khator:
I am writing to recommend that Bill White, Gilbert Garcia and Tony Chase all be included on the list of candidates considered to succeed Richard Fisher as President of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas.
As a former At-Large Houston City Council Member, a Citizen Member of the Houston Firefighters’ Relief and Retirement Fund and a former member of the Board of Directors of the National League of Cities, I know that it matters who represents our community and the Eleventh Federal Reserve District on the Federal Open Market Committee (FMOC) on monetary policy issues.
Decisions made by the Federal Reserve on monetary policy and those made by Congress on fiscal policy and tax reform have a significant impact on the energy and healthcare industries and on trade which impacts the Port of Houston, local families, businesses and entrepreneurs, and the City of Houston’s current and future economic growth and revenues.
The Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas needs a President who will care about rebuilding our nation’s economy for low income and middle class families and supporting monetary policies that will help address the nation’s trade deficit and income and wealth inequality.
Bill White is a former Mayor of Houston and a former Deputy Secretary of Energy. He was also Chairman and CEO of WEDGE Group, a Texas real estate developer.
Gilbert Garcia, CFA, is Chairman of the Houston Metro Board and Managing Partner of Garcia Hamilton & Associates, LP.
Anthony “Tony” Chase is a former Deputy Chair of the Dallas Federal Reserve and a former Chairman of the Greater Houston Partnership. He was recently elected to the Board of Anadarko Petroleum Corporation.
Either of these three candidates would be an excellent choice to serve as the next President of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas.
Thank you, in advance, for your full and thoughtful consideration of these candidates.
