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!

A VOTE FOR MAYOR TOM REID IS A VOTE TO KEEP PEARLAND MOVING FORWARD...A VOTE FOR DALIA KASSEB WILL SEND A STRONG MESSAGE TO THE WORLD THAT "THE AMERICAN" DREAM IS ALIVE AND WELL IN PEARLAND, TEXAS -- VOTE SATURDAY, JUNE 10, 2017
