Did you see that puppy mailer from Brent Golemon, poking fun at John Cyrier in House District 17 — Lee, Bastrop, Caldwell, Gonzales and Karnes counties?
There is no Democrat on the ballot in November, so this race will be decided in the primary.
It is time to kick Golemon (leave those puppies alone, Brent!) to the curb in this election for evading answering any of the serious accusations that Cyrier — and we at Independent Texans — have raised about Golemon and his operation. Even his puppy mailer contained a “little fib” with a newspaper masthead for the “Texas Times” claiming “Austin Lobbyists Fund Smear Campaign”. People
, don’t be sheeple, there is no such newspaper and no such article.
Don’t tell us we didn’t warn you:
Golemon, in his “grassroots” door-to-door work, has collected data on voters and sold it to outside interest groups. Meanwhile, Cyrier was at the legislature fighting for your water alongside us.
Golemon has skirted campaign finance disclosure laws, first failing to report large expenditures, then swearing a questionable oath. Cyrier tried to pass a bill to reveal identities of “dark money” donors, to allow voters to hold candidates accountable. Golemon even put out a deceptive mailer about it (House Bill 37), claiming it was an attack on religious freedom. Poppycock!
Golemon refuses to shoot straight on what he will do to protect your water, while bad-mouthing Cyrier’s actual efforts to pass effective water legislation (including House Bill 3163 we asked him to carry).
Just ask yourself why Golemon won’t tell you his plan to protect the most valuable asset in District 17 – our groundwater!
Is it because he has no plan and none of his outside special interest cronies have given him a water plan that he dares not reveal to us?
If you see a deluge of mail from Golemon or from outside or unidentifiable organizations (we’ve already seen one such mailer). Trust this — you don’t know who these people are and Golemon doesn’t want you to know. We might not like some of the people funding Cyrier, but at least we know who they are.
