It was disgusting what happened in Austin this past week in that the Sanctuary cities bill didn't pass.
I see that Jimmie Don Aycock,the man who isrep. for my area and responsible for voting the way his own supporters would want him to,is on the list below,
A Strass follower and to me the same as being an Obama boy.
I've never cared for Aycock in that, a couple of years ago, he, along with some others, also tried to take advantage of 100% disabled veterans of the state pertaining to a property tax break they were to receive.
He and enough of the rest did come through at the end when they saw the veterans were not falling for their excuses, and it did pass.
But not before causing a lot of heartbreak for people who some had suffered horrible injuries in the name of the country.
There is word now that due to the redistricting,Sheffield may become my areas representative,replacing Aycock which I would dislike just as much as Aycock and will not vote or back him on anything.I do not trust Sheffield nor would I be able to take him at his word.
The representatives who say they are conservative But who instead once they get to Austin, are easily talked into going along with other good ole boys, do not deserve to have a spot in the governing of the people.
Many are too weak willed in standing their ground and doing what they promised their constituents they would do once elected.
