The time has come for young Patrick Rose to exit the State Legislature. Patrick has led a charmed life as a politician. He is supported by big money interests in Houston and Austin. He has ignored the concerns of his District, while doing special favors for his big campaign contributors.
Andrew Backus, a resident of Driftwood, has filed to run in the upcoming Democratic primary. The voters in District 45 can now choose a better candidate. Andrew has an analytical mind, the kind of thought process that we need at our highest leadership levels. He is trained as a scientist and holds two advanced degrees. He has served with distinction as the elected president of the Hays Trinity Groundwater Conservation District. Andrew has pledged to help protect our area’s natural resources, to improve education and health care, to work to lower taxes, and to improve the efficiency of State government. But most importantly, he will represent the interests of the citizens of District 45, not the interests of Houston politicians. I will be supporting Andrew Backus for State Representative District 45 in the March 2nd Primary Election.
