An Open Letter to the 76 Texas Representatives, Including Charlie Geren, Jeff Leach, Stephanie Klick, and Tom Oliverson Whom Have Endorsed or Voted for Speaker Phelan for a Second Term

The eyes of Texas are upon you. This phrase means a lot more to me than a simple song for Texas, or a college football game. It’s a promise Texans make to themselves in the face of opposition to stand strong and never give up and never surrender. The eyes of Texans have been opening across this great land to the underhanded, crooked and deceptive nature of state legislation. We the people find the current house of the 88th Legislature to be a disgrace to Texans across the Lone Star.

That so few representatives would be forced to stand up absent their peers against the current speaker whom opposes half the grassroots priorities for the next legislative session including the first priority: election integrity and decertification of the 2020 election is a disgrace and tells the people of Texas your intentions in fulfilling the priorities Texans want you to focus on. If you elect Dade Phelan as speaker of the house– you do not want to represent your communities because you’ve given away half the battle, and the most crucial front in the war on deceptive legislative practices. And the Texas statehouse has lied to Texans for long enough. It’s time to stop.

The Texas statehouse cannot hide behind the sham forensic audit Secretary of State Scott is pretending to run. Texans are aware of the botched investigations into the 2020, 2021 and undoubtedly the 2022 elections. If you do not know what is happening with our elections in Harris County, you should be ashamed of yourself. You have failed your community and you have failed your state. Our elections are in danger, but that is not why I am writing.

I am writing to inform you that I strongly oppose a ‘yea,’ ‘aye’ or ‘yes’ vote to Dade Phelan for House Speaker. As a voter, I do not think this is a matter of allowing my representative the benefit of title-holder to make this decision. I am advising you, I strongly oppose Dade Phelan as Speaker of the House and am instructing a “No” or “Nay” vote for Dade Phelan. I believe you should vote for Representative Tinderholt as his policies on abortion, Democrat committee chairs, election integrity, school choice, and child safety align closer with the Texas Republican voters than Dade Phelan ever has or ever will.

The Eyes of Texas are upon you,
All the livelong day.
The Eyes of Texas are upon you,
You cannot get away.
Do not think you can escape them
At night or early in the morn –
The Eyes of Texas are upon you
Til Gabriel blows his horn.

Download this draft letter and tell your Texas representative what you think about Dade Phelan.
