Until now, I knew little about Konni Burton and her goals as a candidate for Texas State Senate, District 10. However, having received a political postcard from her recently, I can see how she lacks any genuine depth or understanding of the critical issues.
Using typical marketing verbiage and catch phrases, it is clear Burton is nothing more than another empty shell and political opportunist, running her campaign based on input from pollsters and other self-serving political insiders.
Just like State Rep. Jonathan Stickland, who is running for re-election in District 92 and claiming to represent the Tea Party, it sounds like Burton is running mainly for herself and lacks any conviction or desire to genuinely serve the public interest.
If Burton follows the same empty track record of Stickland, we will be stuck with another phony conservative who talks a good game but ends up ignoring basic issues while increasing our taxes and government service fees.
Never miss a local story.
