Glen Addison Texas Senate Canidate
Tomorrow night, Tuesday the seventh, from 6:30 to 8:00, the Tyler Texas Tea Party, will be holding a meeting to introduce Texas Senate candidate Glen Addison to the area public. Local musician “Rusty” Paul Ruark will also be performing his hit song “You Can keep the Change.” From what I’ve read Mr. Addison has no political experience aside from serving on the Magnolia independent school district, school board starting in 1997. Otherwise he’s an area business owner who’s been operating a number of funeral homes and cemeteries in and around his hometown northwest of Houston. Mr. Addison’s platform is socially and fiscally conservative. Personally I must confess to knowing very little about the candidate. But in an election climate that is decidedly anti- incumbent, anti-establishment his lack of political experience may be seen as refreshing by a lot of Texans.

Our State has not been directly influenced by Tea Party candidates thus far. I think this is largely due to the fact that Texas politicians have been more or less compelled to adopt conservative or moderate positions, due to the already right leaning tendency of the state. As a result we have a republican establishment here with a lot of name recognition that can be tough to beat. Putting a little new or “common” blood into the state’s government would be a good idea. I don’t know whether or not Mr. Addison would be able to win, but I can appreciate the presence of more grassroots candidates reminding our party’s old guard that state offices are not their birthright.
