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

2016 PRIMARY WATCH: Ben Carson Beats Out Cruz, Christie, Perry, Bush, Paul, Rubio, Jindal, Florina, Huckabee, Trump, Other Potential Candidates in 2015 SRLC Straw Poll


2016 PRIMARY WATCH: Ben Carson Beats Out Cruz, Christie, Perry, Bush, Paul, Rubio, Jindal, Florina, Huckabee, Trump, Others in 2015 SRLC Straw Poll

HOUSTON BUSINESS CONNECTIONS REPORTS

What the 2015 Southern Republican Leadership Conference (SRLC) alluded to was a rendezvous with destiny in Oklahoma City at this year's conference. Now its going to take a little time before we can actually label what's unfolding as a date with destiny. But there's no mistaking that there's a shifting going on within the Republican party. And there's absolutely no doubt that the GOP has found a gem in Ben Carson. But whether or not we're seeing history unfold before our eyes remains to be seen. Just what are we seeing unfold? Well for starters, on Saturday, May 23, 2015 the SRLC held a Straw Poll at their 2015 conference, which marks the unofficial start of the 2016 Republican Presidential campaign cycle. The Straw Poll participants were asked to choose the person whom they would vote for if their primary were held on that day. Over 25.4 percent of the Straw Poll participants chose Republican presidential hopeful Dr. Ben Carson who happens to be an African American who grew up poor in a single-parent household in Detroit with bad grades and a horrible temper. However, he defied the odds and went on to eventually be awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian honor in the land. He was awarded this medal back in 2008. He also rose above poverty (and beat the statistics) by getting a good quality education, which eventually afforded him the opportunity to work as the director of pediatric neurosurgery at the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center for over 29 years.

WHAT THEY WERE ASKED

On Saturday, May 23, 2015 SRLC Straw Poll participants were asked this: “If the presidential Republican primary was TODAY, for whom would you vote?”

HOW THEY ANSWERED

HERE’S HOW THE STRAW POLL PARTICIPANTS ANSWERED: 25.4 percent of the Southern Republican Leadership Straw Poll participants chose Dr. Ben Carson, the African American former neurosurgeon for Johns Hopkins Children’s Center for over 29 years, over star-studded field of Republican Presidential hopefuls. Among them were: Scott Walker (20.5%), Ted Cruz (16.6%), Chris Christie (5.3%), Rick Perry (5.0%), Jeb Bush (4.9), Rand Paul (4.1%), Marco Rubio (4.1%), Bobby Jindal (4.1%), Carly Florina (2.7%), Mike Huckabee (2.7), Rick Santorum (1.9%), Donald Trump (1.2%), Mark Everson (0.8%), Lindsey Graham (0.5%), John Kasich (0.2%) and Jim Gilmore (0.0%).

FOR THE RECORD

We’re not saying that Dr. Ben Carson is going to win the Republican Party nomination and go on to become only the second African American President in U.S. history. But stranger things have happened…haven’t they? Stay tuned...
