Why Texas needs Debra Medina for State Comptroller

HONOLULU, February 19, 2014 — In America, the battle for freedom has always been a fight for the right to be left alone and to enjoy the fruits of one’s labor. In Texas, that battle is being won with an exciting, new generation of dynamic local leaders setting the standard for the rest of the states to follow.

Candidate for state comptroller Debra Medina has become a rallying force for Texans frustrated with oppressive property taxation and a woman whose common sense, “can-do” attitude towards reform has inspired the politically disaffected to rise again as alert, engaged voters. Medina’s growing popularity signals a titanic shift in the gravity centers of U.S. policymaking.

In the past, many American voters dismissed the value of local governance and exalted federal offices in an idolatry that left the country $17.2 trillion in the red. Today, local voices like Medina and others have persuaded communities that change begins on Main Street, not K Street, and states and cities have begun to implement reforms that would be impossible in Washington D.C.’s toxic politisphere.

Every great nation began with a great neighborhood. What America needs most right now are local servants with the initiative to see what must be reformed in government and the courage to do it. This kind of leadership by example is what enabled America to become the most prosperous and free nation in the world and, voters permitting, can restore America to greatness.

Having grown up in San Antonio, I will always have the heart of a Texan. For the upcoming Texas Primary election, I ask all other Texans to show the nation that our state still leads from the front in courage, freedom and hope by voting for Debra Medina for state comptroller.
