Money going to the state or county parties does NOTHING for PCs in the field. Nor am I sure he's given the $$$$ you claim.
Still, the only people who's "salaries" Pat Fallon has helped pay are executive directors and staff (and I can assure you both state and county run on shoe string budgets). These are not the people endorsing him. He is endorsed by the unpaid volunteers like myself
But in the interest of "full" disclosure, in all the years I have known Pat Fallon, he has in fact bought me a chicken fried steak dinner exactly ONCE. that at a small local restaurant in Pilot Point just off the square well after I had endorsed him.
The reality is that EVERY Precinct Chair, Police and Fire Association, every Mayor, every elected official and every endorser makes their endorsement individually. Oddly, you claim others "lie" yet here you try to "misrepresent" the truth
"but remember Proverbs where it says that a fool is not interested in the truth only his own opinions"
That quote is just ironic given how badly you try to "misrepresent" reality to support your 'opinion".
But then you seem to be championing the absurd idea we can tax our way to prosperity.
You actually believe that Ms Fulton did a "good job" on LISD which is clearly not supported by the idea the voters booted her out. A very rare occurrence. And sorry to tell you, no one lied about her. In yet another irony, this thread is full of lies, half truths and irrelevant information designed to obscurate the truth.
As far as Ms Fulton working "hard for LISD", #1 reason she was unelected was going to Austin to lobby for the power to raise taxes and issue bonds without voter approval. Her #1 supporter is Parent PAC, a PAC built to prevent the break up of power held by the admin side of schools which effectively works for more admin (big govt) and less classroom (students/teachers).
You really should take your quote to heart and actually learn about the issues. As a parent, I can see the negative impact of our teacher admin ratio falling from 1 to 5 down to 1 to 1. Frisco ISD sits at 1.1 to .9 today with more money for salaries actually going to Admin not teachers.
Either you don't understand the issues or you are intentionally trying to misrepresent them.
Ms Fulton bills herself as a Republican (top line of her election signs) and as a conservative yet she fights for bigger govt and more taxes. Now I understand why you and the editor here like her for that but it's 180 degrees out from an actual Republican stance.
