General Election Kickoff Blockwalk for Jason Villalba for House District 114!

September 13, 2012

There are only 54 days left until the November election and we need your help! Jason Villalba is running against a big-government, Obama-supporting, liberal Democrat opponent in Texas House District 114.

The most effective way to get out the vote and ensure that we send a Reagan Republican to the Texas House is to knock on those doors -and a lot of them!

We need all hands on deck this Saturday and Sunday!

Saturday Walk:

When: Saturday, 9/15, 9:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

Where: Chipotle, Northeast Corner of Preston & Forest

Sunday Walk:

When: Sunday, 9/16, 12:30 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.

Where: Chipotle, Northeast Corner of Preston & Forest

Lunch provided for all walkers on Saturday. No blockwalking experience required – we’ll train you on the spot. If you have a Jason Villalba t-shirt, please wear it. If not, we’ll provide you with one. Join us for fun, food, and a little exercise as we kick this campaign into high gear!

To join us just respond to this email, visit us at www.texansforjason.com and click the “Join Us” button, call our Campaign Manager at 214-766-0110, or just SHOW UP! It’s that easy.

We look forward to seeing you this Saturday or Sunday.

Time for Signs!

September 11, 2012

Friends and Supporters,

Thank you so much for helping us win the primary! Because of all of your work, we are now in the general election against the pro-big government, pro-tax raising, pro-Obama/Pelosi, liberal Democrat! There are only 58 more days until election day and we need you now more than ever.

It’s time to put those signs back up and to get to work for the final push to victory!

  • If you have leftover signs from the primary, please place them back up in your yard as soon as possible.
  • If your wire hangers have been bent or broken, let us know and we’ll bring you some new ones.
  • If your signs have been lost or destroyed, let us know and we will bring you some new ones (we have plenty).
  • If you have friends, family members, neighbors, fellow Republicans, or other supporters who want a sign, let us know and we’ll bring you as many as you want.
  • If you want a large sign (4 x 4) in your yard or on a corner or fence, let us know and we will place it for you.
  • If you want to have a coffee for your neighbors and friends to meet Jason and ask him questions about what he stands for and his vision for Texas, just let us know and we’ll set it up.

Just ask, and it will be done!

As you know, the sign wars are very important to our effort and the more signs we have up the better. Also, you may have noticed some illegal signs from our opponent littering the district on City of Dallas property. Please feel free to report them online at http://dallascityhall.com/services/streets.html, or you can call to report them at 214-670-5111.

Thank you again for all you do. Let’s work hard together to make sure that we keep District 114 under solidly conservative Republican leadership!

Sincerely,

Texans For Jason Villalba

We Did It!

August 1, 2012

Friends, it is with the greatest humility and with a servant’s heart that I announce to you today that last night we succeeded in winning the Republican Party Primary for the Texas House in HD 114!

It was a long and trying campaign, but in the end, the people have spoken and they have determined that they prefer progress over partisanship. That is what we offer: conservative leadership dedicated to enhancing the lives of the people that we will represent in HD 114.

I want to thank my beautiful wife Brooke and the girls for sacrificing their time with their Papa so that we could pursue this goal.  I also want thank my campaign team of Mari Woodlief, Trey Newton, Linda Rogers, Kim Garza Turner, Cecile Newberry Fernandez and Christopher Clement.  They were all instrumental in making this possible.  And most of all, I want to thank you for your prayers, encouragement, support and for believing in us when we needed you most.

Now, the hard work begins. We have a formidable opponent in November and we will need to increase our efforts exponentially to ensure that the District does not fall into the hands of those who do not believe in smaller government, lower taxes, decreased regulations, strong border security and the sanctity of life. We will fight for those principles because they guide us and they define who we are.  Thank you my friends. As I noted yesterday, I could not have done this without you. I mean that from the bottom of my heart. God bless you and God bless Texas.

DMN Article: Senator Hutchison Headlines Fundraiser for Jason Villalba

Kay Bailey Hutchison headlines fundraiser for state House runoff candidate Jason Villalba

State House candidate Jason Villalba, battling in a GOP runoff to represent Lake Highlands and North Dallas, brought out heavyweight support Friday at a fundraiser headlined by U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison.

The retiring senator joined state Sen. Florence Shapiro of Plano and other top Republicans in championing Villalba as a thoughtful but steadfast conservative.

Hutchison highlighted her support by noting how rare it was for her to jump into such a race.

“Not one other person in the state of Texas have I endorsed in the primary, even though I’ve been asked a lot,” she told about 50 people gathered at a Highland Park home. “The reason is he’s the future.”

Villalba, a Dallas lawyer making his first political run, faces former state Rep. Bill Keffer in the July 31 runoff.

Even though Villalba finished second in the May primary by 6 percentage points, he predicted he would prevail in District 114.

He said there’s a “clear distinction” in leadership style between him and Keffer, who has staked his campaign on being the “true conservative.”

He cast himself as a “community servant” and said he would prove his party bona fides by “doing what is right for the people, not to wave a flag, not to get in partisan battles.”

Keffer, who represented the old District 107 from 2003 to 2006, said in a phone interview that he agrees there are differences in how they would approach the job.

He said he makes no apologies for being perceived as a hard-line Republican, and he jabbed at Villalba’s more consensus-building ways.

“I’m a little puzzled about Jason’s emphasis on reaching across the aisle,” Keffer said.

Hutchison and Shapiro echoed Villalba’s stump speech, saying there needs to be a different kind of leadership coming into both Austin and Washington.

Shapiro said government needs more problem solvers, not a bigger crowd of people who will just say “No.”

Hutchison said lawmakers must focus more on Texas’ future by properly funding education, an area slashed in the last legislative session.

“As I’m on the exit ramp,” she said, “I want to make sure the next generation coming in are the right kind of people who are thoughtful and … who know the community.”

TEXPAC Endorses Jason Villalba for the Texas House

May 7, 2012

AUSTIN – TEXPAC, the political advocacy arm of the Texas Medical Association (TMA), has announced its endorsement of Jason Villalba for the Texas House of Representatives in the May 29 Republican primary election.

“We’re pleased to announce our support of Jason Villalba for District 114. We are confident Jason will do the right thing for patients and the right thing for the medical community,” said Joe Todd, MD, chair of the TEXPAC Board of Directors.

North Texas physicians are excited about Mr. Villalba’s bid for the House of Representatives. “He understands physicians are small- and midsize-business people buried in red tape and regulations today. We know we can count on Jason to support legislation that improves the business climate for Texas businesses, which benefits physicians’ practices and their patients,” said Dallas cardiologist Richard W. Snyder II, MD, member of the TEXPAC Board of Directors.

“Mr. Villalba also recognizes physicians are the anchor of the health care delivery system. We know he will work to protect patients to ensure they continue to receive high-quality care from the person best trained to provide that care,” added Dr. Snyder.

“I am truly honored and humbled to have received the support and endorsement of the Texas Medical Association and TEXPAC,” Mr. Villalba said. “I recognize the special role that physicians play in our communities and the significant contribution that medical professionals make to the Texas economy. My pledge to all Texans is that I will fight tirelessly to ensure that we have a robust and patient-centered medical industry where physicians can deliver care and healing to our community without the fear of frivolous lawsuits and in a way that is economically efficient for and advantageous to all of our citizens.”

TEXPAC speaks on behalf of more than 45,500 Texas physicians and medical students, and nearly 8,000 alliance members. Organized in 1962, TEXPAC is one of the oldest political action committees in Texas. TEXPAC also is one of the largest bipartisan PACs in the state and ranks first in size among other state medical association PACs.
