ENDORSEMENT OF VALINDA HATHCOX
FOR U.S. CONGRESS, DISTRICT 4

The people of Texas and America will gain exceptional representation in Washington D.C. from VaLinda Hathcox as the next United States Representative for District 4 of Texas. Let me explain. I believe my campaign experience in 2006 afforded me an opportunity to get to know the heart of other candidates on the campaign trail. As candidate for Texas Land Commissioner, VaLinda Hathcox was an inspiration to me in that the truth to her was not to be compromised for popularity. The people and the land of Texas are vast in diversity but for the most part they are solid and true. That is the character of VaLinda Hathcox, and is the desperate need in Congress.
However, it is not enough to rely solely on the character that our elected officials take to our Nation’s Capitol. VaLinda Hathcox takes to Washington D.C. a proven record of public service as an attorney in the defense and protection of health services for the poor, as well as administration of legal judgments and education on tax matters. There is much work ahead to restore this nation that her hands‐on experience on solving issues will be an advantage for us all.
This election year, the people of Texas and Americans across the country will judge for themselves what change and how much change our country can sustain after 8 years of poor performance from our Federal government. It is not enough to believe that a new President in the White House will begin to solve ourproblems. As proof, let us just look back to the presidential campaign promises of 2000 “a uniter, not a divider”, and of 2004 “safer world, and more hopeful America.” One President alone cannot restore a nation. We live in a representative democracy and so who we send to Congress is just as, if not more, important. The character and the type of experience of those we elect to Congress must be that which will further the causes of the American people. I believe VaLinda Hathcox to be a strong and unyielding voice that will speak for those of us in Texas, and America.
For Democrats, Independents, and Republicans, VaLinda Hathcox is one change in Washington D.C. that will increase our opportunity for representation that has been long overdue. Please join me in supporting VaLinda Hathcox by casting your vote for her on March 4th, and visiting her campaign website at http://www.VaLindahathcox.com to contribute further.
