Running for state representative two years ago, Jonathan Stickland charmed people by telling them what they wanted to hear.

He painted himself as a conservative to mainstream Republicans while telling Tea Party members he was a voice for change.

In reality, his actions in Austin have proven to be neither.

When Stickland goes to Austin, his interests are for himself.

He claims to say no to lobbyists, but in reality it is the lobbyists and other legislators who have learned to keep their distance from him.

They know he is a political chameleon, void of conviction and competence, saying anything to get people to listen.

And now that he’s running for re-election, we know his talk is cheap and his record empty.
