State Representative Ron Reynolds and Angelique Bartholomew are the candidates running for House District 27 in the Runoff



TUESDAY, MAY 24, 2016 “DEMOCRATIC PARTY PRIMARY" RUNOFF KEY RACE

On Tuesday, May 24, 2016 our friend and supporter Angelique Bartholomew will be seeking to secure her place in history. A victory by Bartholomew over embattled Democratic State Representative Ron Reynolds would make Angelique Bartholomew the first African American woman to ever represent House District 27 in the Texas House of Representatives. Angelique Bartholomew is asking for "ALL HOUSE DISTRICT 27" voters to help her make history by turning out to vote for her in the Democratic Party runoff election during the early voting period. The winner of the Tuesday, May 24, 2016 Fort Bend County Democratic Party Primary runoff election between Angelique Bartholomew and Ron Reynolds must then prepare to face off against a strong African American conservative attorney by the name Ken Bryant in the Tuesday, November 8, 2016 “Presidential Election” in Fort Bend County. As of today, Angelique Bartholomew is the only candidate asking for our prayers, vote and support in the Tuesday, May 24, 2016 Democratic Primary "Runoff Race" for State Representative for House District 27 in Fort Bend County, Texas. Early voting for this race will begin on Monday, May 16, 2016 and end on Friday, May 20, 2016. So, don't forget to vote early!




As President and CEO of Aubrey R. Taylor Communications, the publisher of Houston Business Connections Newspaper® and Ground Game Magazine® I am imploring every warm-blooded American to put people over politics when selecting candidates during the "2016 Presidential Election Cycle" that's currently in full swing. I’m also asking for you to vote for and support "QUALIFIED CANDIDATES" who "EXPRESS AND DEMONSTRATE" a sincere desire and willingness to represent "ALL CONSTITUENTS" who dwell within the jurisdictions to which they've been duly elected "BY THE PEOPLE" to serve during this very important and pivotal election cycle.
