The Houston Business Connections Magazine© “STRATEGIC VOTER” Mobilization "2020" Project is Currently Underway


"The Tuesday, November 3, 2020 “PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION” will be one of the most important "PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS" in American History. So, with HB25 putting an end to "STRAIGHT TICKET VOTING" in the State of Texas, voter education, engagement and empowerment must start a lot earlier than in past Presidential Elections. However, as we push toward "2020" we must not sleep on the upcoming "2018 DEMOCRATIC PRIMARY AND 2018 REPUBLICAN PRIMARY" scheduled to take place on Tuesday, March 6, 2018 in the State of Texas." -- Aubrey R. Taylor

TUESDAY, MARCH 6, 2018 PRIMARY ELECTIONS

The "2018 DEMOCRATIC PRIMARY AND 2018 REPUBLICAN PRIMARY" will take place on Tuesday, March 6, 2018 in Harris County, Texas! It is vitally important that each political party assemble the very best slate of nominees in 2018. Early voting will begin on Tuesday, February 20, 2018 and end on Friday, March 2, 2018. And, please make a mental note that the Tuesday, November 6, 2018 “GENERAL MIDTERM ELECTION” will be the last time you will be able to vote a "STRAIGHT-DEMOCRATIC TICKET" or "STRAIGHT-REPUBLICAN TICKET" in the State of Texas.

MOBILIZATION WILL BE "OUR" KEY TO VICTORY

Voter education, engagement and empowerment will be our primary focus between now and 2020. So, Houston Business Connections Magazine© is currently working on our “POWER RANKINGS” for the Tuesday, November 7, 2017 General Election for Missouri City, Texas; The Houston Independent School District (HISD) School Board Elections scheduled to be held on Tuesday, November 7, 2017; The Houston Community College (HCC) School Board Elections scheduled to be held on Tuesday, November 7, 2017; The Harris County Democratic Party Primary scheduled to be held on Tuesday, March 6, 2018; The Harris County Republican Party Primary scheduled to be held on Tuesday, March 6, 2018; The Tuesday, November 6, 2018 “MIDTERM ELECTION” and the Tuesday, November 3, 2020 “PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION” – which we believe will be the most highly contested “PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION” of our lifetime. So don't get caught sleeping!

OUR DIVERSE AND KNOWLEDGEABLE READERSHIP WILL HAVE AN EVEN GREATER IMPACT ON FUTURE ELECTIONS

For over 26-years Aubrey R. Taylor has studied "LOCAL AND NATIONAL" elections. During this time, he’s helped incumbents to hold onto their seats, and he’s “DEVELOPED STRATEGIES TO UNSEAT INCUMBENTS” as well. For years, he’s paneled a “PRIVATE GROUP OF HIS READERS” to assist him with picking the best candidates to recommend in “PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS” and “MIDTERM ELECTIONS” In case you don’t know, back in the Tuesday, November 8, 2016 “PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION” a “SELECT GROUP” of Houston Business Connections Magazine© readers made “RECOMMENDATIONS” in sixty-seven (67) races on the ballot in Harris County. The Houston Chronicle (EDITORIAL BOARD) made endorsements in the same sixty-seven (67) races. HERE ARE THE RESULTS: The Houston Chronicle’s (EDITORIAL BOARD) posted a record of: (38 ENDORSEMENT WINS AND 29 ENDORSEMENT LOSSES) and the Houston Business Connections Magazine© “SELECT GROUP” of readers posted a record of: (51 ENDORSEMENT WINS AND 16 ENDORSEMENT LOSSES). So, who would you rather have as your media partner?


A FEW "DISTINGUISHED LEADERS" YOU SHOULD KNOW IN HARRIS COUNTY

The "DISTINGUISHED LEADERS" featured in the banner below have all been assigned a Houston Business Connections Magazine© "STRATEGIC VOTER POWER RANKING NUMBER" based on the number of "NON-STRAIGHT TICKET VOTES" they received back in 2016. This is crucial heading into "2020" because "STRAIGHT-TICKET VOTING" will not be allowed in the "2020 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION" in the State of Texas. You can call (832)212-8735 for more information. Or call (281)788-3033 if you are a candidate in need of branding, marketing, strategy, campaign sign placement/monitoring, or any other campaign related questions.
