T.J. Gilmore is a tireless advocate of Lewisville, spending countless hours working on the issues that make a difference to Lewisville both today and in the future. I know him to be a thoughtful, analytical, and practical leader who studies the issues carefully, and prefers to be proactive rather than knee-jerk reactive. Gilmore will focus on pragmatic, proven, fiscally responsible, and economics-based solutions for adding value to our city, rather than heavy-handed division for cheap political points. Though we may not agree on every issue, I will always have faith that T.J. has researched the issues and considered all points of view. I'm proud to offer T.J. my full support in his race for Lewisville City Council, Place 4.

At a recent town hall meeting, a man stood up and told Representative Bob Inglis to “keep your government hands off my Medicare.” The congressman, a Republican from South Carolina, tried to explain that Medicare is already a government program — but the voter, Mr. Inglis said, “wasn’t having any of it.”
It’s a funny story — but it illustrates the extent to which health reform must climb a wall of misinformation. It’s not just that many Americans don’t understand what President Obama is proposing; many people don’t understand the way American health care works right now. They don’t understand, in particular, that getting the government involved in health care wouldn’t be a radical step: the government is already deeply involved, even in private insurance.
And that government involvement is the only reason our system works at all.
His initial postings seem to be very well written, which is no surprise from someone of his caliber. We've added his link to the "Other Good Websites" section in the left-hand navigational bar of this site. We wish him the best of luck with it.
