The Republican establishment, and every lobbyist this side of the Pecos all the way to DC and New York City, targeted Bastrop County Judge Paul Pape for defeat on May 24.


Water and local control champion, Paul Pape, lost by 325 votes failing to become State Representative for Texas House District 17 Bastrop, Burleson, Caldwell, Lee, and Milam counties -- home of the central Texas water wars.

Without a doubt, Paul Pape will continue to serve Bastrop County because he's built that way. He will also remain Bastrop County Judge until January 2023. 

NEWS!!! Founder of Independent Texans PAC, Linda Curtis, has

filed signatures to get on the ballot as an independent

in the race for House District 17. If she gets 500 signatures from

voters who did NOT vote in the primary (due June 23) Linda will

square-off against Stan Gerdes and Democratic nominee,

Madeline Eden. 

Linda says:


"This is a golden opportunity to whup Rick Perry's Poodle,

 Stan Gerdes, for lying, cheating and getting ready to steal

whatever's not nailed down -- our land and water --

just like his political boss Rick Perry."
