Come to my party Sunday -- Monday Forum, Gerdes too busy with 10 weeks notice! Y'all come to my party on Sunday, 5 to 7, Paige Roadhouse on the Bastrop & Lee County line! Event Page Here Pick up a sign, get a button, and hear some live music from McDade homeboy and longtime professional musician, Phil Ayliffe and friends. We'll also have an open mike session to strategize on how we're going to take House District 17 -- Bastrop, Burleson, Caldwell, Lee and Milam counties -- independent! If you want a big sign -- a 4 x 4 or 4 x 8 -- reply to let me know or call us. Donate, Y'all!

A Shoe-String and Shoe-Leather Campaign Rick Perry's longtime employee, Stan Gerdes, is on his way to spending $700,000 for a job that pays $7,000. Yet, Gerdes won't attend any forums with opposing candidates. He figures he already has this in the bag because money runs politics, right? Gotta say this is true in many cases. But this campaign is a horse of a different color. That's because voters are fed up with bought and paid for candidates. They are ready to go independent! Help me prove that a shoe-string, shoe leather independent campaign is the cure to our political woes. Can't make it Sunday? Reply to this message. You can help from home. Thank y'all! Linda Curtis
