3 2016 SELECT GENERAL ELECTION ENDORSEMENTS (SEE AMAZING WOMEN OF THE GOP FOR ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS) By Gary Polland, Editor-in-Chief Just about everything imaginable the good, the bad and the extremely ugly has been said about this year s Presidential election and its contestants. So much so in fact, that many voters from both sides are tempted to boycott the contest altogether. For those who have decided to sit out the main event, the message should be to vote everything else, because the down ballot races are where their (and your) vote really counts. In 2012 (the last comparable election cycle), some conservative candidates lost their races by as few as 700 votes out of over 1 million votes cast, which proves that every vote really does count. Regardless of your feelings about the top of the ticket, voting down ballot is essential. CONGRESSIONAL RACES As surprising as it may be, veteran Harris County area Congressmen Ted Poe, John Culberson, Michael McCaul and Pete Olsen have all drawn General Election opponents. Each has served this area with distinction and has earned re-election to continue their service to the voters. STATE RESENTATIVE RACES First time candidate Kevin Roberts (District 126) is running in an open seat following the retirement of popular Rep. Patricia Harless. Roberts brings a common sense, practical approach to problem solving while upholding strong, conservative fiscal and social principles. His pro-business, pro-family and pro-life platform are a good fit with the conservative district. Valoree Swanson (District 150) is a long-time, conservative Republican activist who is running on a platform to seal the border, eliminate sanctuary cities, lower or eliminate property taxes, and block new low-income government subsidized housing. STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION Donna Bahorich won election to the State Board of Education District 6 seat in 2012 and was recognized for her leadership when Governor Greg Abbott appointed her Chair of the SBOE. Bahorich has consistently applied conservative principles at the SBOE working diligently to approve and promote college and careerready courses, leading to increased opportunities for students after high school. DISTRICT COURTS The district courts include criminal, civil and family law courts and affect most citizens at some point in their lives, making them some of the most important races on the ballot. While there are too many races to list individually, TCR has selected a handful of the most outstanding candidates to profile. Most of the candidates are challenging incumbent judges who were swept in with Barack Obama in As our first featured candidate, Kevin Fulton, often says, These judges came in with Obama. They should leave with Obama. We couldn t agree more, Kevin. For those who have decided to sit out the main event, the message should be to vote everything else, because the down ballot races are where their (and your) vote really counts. Kevin Fulton is a veteran of the U.S. Army who saw action in the Gulf War. After discharge from the Army, Fulton worked in law enforcement, while attending law school. Fulton currently owns a law firm specializing in civil litigation. Super Lawyers Magazine named Fulton a Rising Star and TCR believes that Harris County citizens would be fortunate to have this rising star working for them on the 11th District Court. Judge Linda Garcia was unanimously appointed by Harris County Commissioners Court as judge of the newly-created Harris County Criminal Court at Law No. 16 in December Garcia earned her Bachelor s Degree from the University of Houston at night while working full time during the day. Since graduating cum laude from the UH Law Center, Garcia has worked for the past 15 years as a career prosecutor, including two posts as a Chief Prosecutor. Garcia is also a 9-year veteran of the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles, where she was appointed by Governors Bush and Perry. In the 164th Civil District Court race, TCR endorses Bruce Bain, who won the 2016 Houston Bar Association Judicial Preference poll. Bain has over 3 decades of experience that will be invaluable on the court. TCR also wishes to acknowledge the incumbent conservative judges who have served our county with great distinction and superior judicial temperament. We solidly recommend a vote for Judges Erin Lunceford, Debra Ibarra Mayfield, Stacey W. Bond, Ryan Patrick, Kristin M. Guiney, Joseph Tad Halbach, Grant Dorfman, Renee Magee, Brock Thomas and Mark Kent Ellis.

5 TEXAS STILL HAS A TRANSPORTATION CRISIS By Bob Jones, Jones Engineering Solutions, LLC When you identify a crisis and you only fund 70 percent of the crisis, does the crisis go away? Kudos to the Governor, Lt. Governor, Speaker of the House and the Texas Legislature for taking solid steps to better fund our transportation needs in this great state. In the last two legislative sessions, the Legislature stopped diversions from the state highway fund and gave us the right to vote to shift existing tax revenues to provide more highway funding. Voters overwhelmingly supported the additional highway money. The Proposition 1 Oil & Gas Severance Tax revenue and the Proposition 7 Sales Tax revenue will provide the first new highway funds since A giant step forward, but it is not enough to solve our transportation crisis. Texas still has a transportation funding crisis and needs more money. It will take an additional $2-3 Billion per year, from a stable source of revenue, if we want to restore and build our highway system to the quality we expect in Texas. TOLL ROADS NEW REVENUE Toll Roads became a necessity starting around 2002, simply because we did not fund our transportation program. That s right; we only have toll roads because our previous governor and legislators did not fund our highway system. Instead, they borrowed money for toll roads and highways and made the problem worse. Except for the emotion and hype of a few, the single most equitable way to pay for our highway system is with fuel fees (taxes). If you don t drive, you don t buy gas and you don t pay. If you drive a lot, you pay more. If you drive a large truck or an 18-wheeler that gets poorer gas mileage you pay more. It s simple let the user pay for the road. Toll roads provide a great service and are A 20-cent fuel tax increase would a solution to our lack of state funding, cost the typical driver with a typical car albeit a poor solution in terms of cost. about one penny per mile. It would also When you ride on a toll road you will solve our funding crisis. pay cents per mile for the trip. Using oil & gas taxes and sales taxes are reasonable dedications of funds for highways, but neither of those taxes When you identify a crisis collect much of anything from all of and you only fund 70 the trucks and tourists that drive our percent of the crisis, does highways. Think about it, all of the big trucks running up and down our the crisis go away? highways from Mexico and the heart of the U.S. pay very little as they tear Travel on our open access highways and up our highways. An increased fuel fee would go a long way toward providing it costs you about 1.5 cents per mile equity between who uses our highways through your gas fees (taxes) and vehicle and who pays for our highways. registration fees. Sometimes we are too smart for our own good. Many in the Republican Party argued we should not raise any tax or any fee. Instead we built toll roads through conservative neighborhoods We needed $5 Billion-$7 Billion per year and Republicans pay 10 times more to drive on toll roads than it would cost of new money when the proposition to build open access highways. How game started. When all of the new money is counted a couple of years from conservative is that? There is a discussion going on in the now, we will probably have less than Legislature right now to determine what $4 Billion per year ($ Million it might cost to buy the state toll roads from diversion recapture, $2.5 Billion (not Harris County Toll Road Authority from sales tax revenue and $ Million in Oil & Gas Severance taxes).

Tell your elected officials: 1. Stop messing around with our highway/transportation system. Fund it! 2. Do not touch any Prop 1, Prop 7 or other transportation funds for any other purposes. 3. Twice, we ve voted overwhelmingly to fund our highway system yet we re still short why? 4. Move transportation funding to the front of the line during budget decisions, not to the back end fighting for leftover funds. 5. Adopt an incremental increase to the fuel tax, or let us vote to mandate the needed increase. 6. Consider converting TxDOT toll roads to open access highways. 7. You want the job completed. Plan and fund all of the roads we need, not just the ones we can pay for with leftover oil & gas taxes or limited sales taxes. 5

6 BURDEN OF PROOF - BE THE MORE INTELLIGENT VOTER By Commissioner R. Jack Cagle 6 In 2008, in the midst of the Obama wave, there were a number of Republican judges who lost due to straight party voting. The irony is that if the Republicans who voted for the top of the Republican ticket had also voted for the bottom of the ticket none of those judges would have lost. What happened? Republicans pride themselves on being intelligent voters. Pragmatically, what this means is that a Republican voter would affirmatively vote for the Republican judge ONLY if that judge knocked on his front door and proved that judge s superiority over their Democrat opponent. Meanwhile, Democrat voters voted for their top of the ticket and voted for the remainder of the straight Democrat ticket unless the same Republican candidate knocked on their door and proved that the Republican was, in fact, superior to their candidate. The net effect is that, in a county of 4.5 million residents, intelligent Republican voters cast halfballots for their Democrat opponents in these hotly contested and close races. What the more intelligent Republican voter should do is vote straight Republican... What s wrong with this picture? What s wrong is that Republicans are putting the burden of proof for the sake of their intelligence on the wrong party. What the more intelligent Republican voter should do is vote straight Republican; giving their candidate the benefit of the doubt versus the Democrat candidate, unless that Democrat candidate knocks on their door and convinces them that they are better than the Republican candidate. Put the burden of proof on Thank you Gary Polland and the Texas Conservative Review for all your years of service to the Conservative cause. Pol ad paid for by Committee to support R. Jack Cagle, Robert A. Eckels, Treasurer the proper party when you re voting for the judges who preside over your courts. If you do so, you will not only be an intelligent voter, you will be a more intelligent voter. If you don t do so, in this next election we stand the chance of losing another number of good judges and their hundreds of cumulative years of judicial experience. Why, because you decided to let the Democrat win the day by making your Republican candidate prove to you that he or she is the better choice. Be a more intelligent voter by putting the burden of proof where it belongs...on the Democrat. Commissioner R. Jack Cagle has served the citizens of Harris County for 30 years as an attorney, an elected judge, and now as County Commissioner in Pct. 4. Commissioner Cagle is a graduate of Rice University and the Baylor Law School. He and his wife Janet have three children; Richard, Victoria, and Elizabeth.

7 THE AMAZING WOMEN OF THE GOP By Marc Cowart, TCR Managing Editor In a presidential election year, down ballot candidates are in a desperate fight against the dreaded undervote voters who vote the top of the ticket and skip the critical races that follow. Of course a straight ticket vote will catch all the down ballot races, but some voters just don t like to vote the straight ticket. And then there are school board races, which are non-partisan and also not affected by the straight party vote. The dilemma for the GOP is how to draw voters down the ballot. The answer may just be an extraordinary group of candidates we are calling The Amazing Women of the GOP. These women are talented, experienced and have great stories, which may be exactly what the GOP needs to get voters all the way to the bottom of the ballot. Meet them here and judge for yourself. JUSTICE EVA GUZMAN has been called a trailblazer a pathfinder and a history maker. It is hard to disagree considering that she is the first Latina elected to statewide office and the first to serve on the Texas Supreme Court. She also holds the distinction of having served on three levels of the Texas judiciary; first as a District Court judge, then as a justice on the 14th Court of Appeals and now as a justice on the Texas Supreme Court where she has served with high praise for the past 17 years. SHARON HEMPHILL is a candidate for the 125th District Court who has over 20 years experience as an appellate attorney. Her impeccable credentials include a Masters of Law and Board certification. Hemphill is known as a smart, hardworking attorney with the temperament needed to be a first class judge. SARAHJANE SJ SWANSON will bring to the 127th Civil District Court not only a great depth and breadth of legal experience and acumen she s tried 20 civil lawsuits and was named a Top Lawyer for three years running by Houstonia magazine she also brings more than 15 years of high-level business experience. Swanson s legal and private sector experience are assets that Harris County can put to good use on the 127th. JUDGE CINDY BENNETT SMITH is seeking election to the 133rd Civil District Court. Smith is a seasoned civil attorney with extensive experience in complex civil cases. Additionally, Smith is a municipal judge in the City of Tomball, where she has earned the reputation for fairness and respect for all. This experience will enable her to be effective from day one. JUDGE DEBRA IBARRA MAYFIELD was appointed to the 165th District Court by Governor Greg Abbott in Prior to her appointment to the district court bench, Mayfield served as Judge of Harris County Civil Court at Law Number 1 where she had the distinction of serving as the first Latina judge of a Harris County court at law. Mayfield s impressive legal career began as a briefing attorney at the Court of Appeals and continued as an attorney in private practice. In addition to her work on the bench, Mayfield is also an adjunct professor at the University of Houston. KATHERINE MCDANIEL is a is a dedicated public servant, and a nineteenyear veteran of the Harris County District Attorney s Office who is running for the 174th Judicial District Court. In 2014, McDaniel was recognized statewide as Prosecutor of the Year by the Texas Narcotics Officers Association. She has tried over 100 felony jury trials and volunteers with the drug court rehabilitation program for low-level drug offenders. Katherine is a nationallyrecognized expert in the field of search and seizure. JUDGE ALYSSA LEMKUIL is the first judge to preside over the 507th Judicial District Court following its creation by the Texas Legislature. Appointed by Governor Abbott to fill this new family court bench, Lemkuil is the clear choice. She is endorsed by over 400 family attorneys based on her record of fairness and impartiality since taking the bench. Prior to being a Judge, she was an outstanding Associate Judge in the 308th District Court. SOPHIA MAFRIGE has 28 years of legal experience handling litigation and transactional matters, as well as civil mediation. Mafrige has a broad range of practice in civil matters and a history of service to the community that make her the best choice for the 129th District Court. DANIELLE PAULUS is an unapologetic homemaker and mother of two young children, which provide her greatest sources of motivation to run for HISD Trustee District VII. She is not a political insider or education bureaucrat. Paulus describes her outrage at the many HISD follies that include a preoccupation with political correctness more concerned with the name on the outside of a school rather than the results inside the school. Paulus has the sincere inspiration to make a difference, but without the slightest hint of a political agenda or aspiration to use the office as a stepping stone. In short, she is exactly the kind of person we want to serve at HISD. IMPORTANT NOTE: This position is not affected by the straight party vote; you must scroll to the end to vote this race. 7
