Galveston County Conservatives are pleased to present our endorsements in the 2014 election season. Because we are active in the Republican party and closely follow local, county and state government issues, we personally know these candidates as well as their opponents. This vantage point gives us a unique opportunity to get to know and carefully assess these individuals. As a result, in each race we will endorse the candidate we believe is the strongest advocate for commonsense, conservative principles proven to ensure fiscal responsibility, accountability, freedom and prosperity for our county and for all Texans.
We will not necessarily endorse in every race.
2014 Republican Primary Endorsements
|State Rep 23||Bob Senter||Principled, dedicated, high integrity; Bob’s years of exemplifying these attributes in the local Chamber, the Texas City ISD Foundation and more are why civic leaders across the County support him.His opponent is working hard to distract voters from the substance in this race. We set the record straight and dispel the nonsense here.
We need Bob representing us in Austin.
|County Judge||Michelle Hatmaker||A successful entrepreneur with a track record of support for conservative causes and the local party, Michelle would bring the principled, pro-business leadership the Commissioners Court needs to woo more businesses to the county and create jobs.|
|212th District Court||Bret Griffin||Governor Rick Perry cites the extent of Bret’s experience as both a prosecutor and as a defense attorney over 13 years as the reasons he appointed Griffin to fill the vacancy in this Court. We agree and encourage you support him with your vote as well.|
|County Court No. 2||Barbara Roberts||We supported Barbara in her campaign four years ago and given her performance since so no reason to change. Judge Roberts is quality, first class and merits your vote.|
|Justice of the Peace Pct. 1||Alison Cox||Alison’s 40 years of community involvement in church, schools, volunteer organizations, and the Republican Party, illustrate the objective, reasonable and wise character we want in the Precinct 1 JP Court.|
|District Attorney||Jack Roady||We campaigned for Jack when he was elected four years ago and continue to support him today. Jack has the integrity, dedication and principle we want in our top law enforcement official and the steady head necessary to ensure justice is done.|
|County Party Chair||DJ Alvarez||It’s time to end the scandals, cronyism and corruption in the local party. DJ’s decades of service in law enforcement make him a well known and respected leader across the region. His credibility and principled leadership can put the party back on track.|
