Texan Karen Fonseca recently drew nationwide attention for the “F--- Trump” sticker posted on the back of her pickup truck.

Now she’s selling the very sticker featured in the photo Fort Bend County Sheriff Troy Nehls took of her truck and posted on his Facebook page. The window sticker also says, “And f--- you for voting for him.”

Nehls created a viral post after putting the picture on social media and warning that he could press disorderly conduct charges against Fonseca for the sticker.

But Fonseca, who recently was arrested on an unrelated outstanding warrant in a fraud case, also is selling a new sticker — that states “F--- Troy Nehls and F--- you for voting for him.”

KHOU reports that money raised by the stickers, which are sold by Fort Bend County Democrats, will benefit a voter registration drive.

Local endorsement

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has been busy recently, endorsing a number of Republicans — as he promised he would — who appear to support his agenda.

One lawmaker he recently endorsed: state Rep. Matt Krause, R-Fort Worth.

Abbott called Krause, who represents House District 93, a “true champion of conservative values in the House.”

“As a tested and trusted member of the House of Representatives, Matt Krause is always working to ensure Texans’ hard-earned tax dollars are being used responsibly,” Abbott said in the statement. “In addition to being a good steward of the taxpayer, Rep. Krause has fought to keep government growth in check and protect our most vulnerable — the unborn.

“I am proud to endorse Matt Krause for re-election and urge the voters of HD 93 to join me in supporting him for another term.”

Hard at work

U.S. Rep. Marc Veasey, D-Fort Worth, recently spent the day with the maintenance and repair team at Airbus Helicopters Inc. in Grand Prairie.

“I am fortunate to catch a rare glimpse into the inner workings of a renowned aviation company like Airbus which provided me new insights for my work on the House Armed Service Committee,” Veasey said. “Working alongside their crew, I learned about the meticulous checklist the maintenance team must follow to ensure the safety of pilots.”

This is part of his “Marc Means Business” workdays, a years-long effort for him to get to know more constituents in the 33rd Congressional District that stretches from Fort Worth to Dallas.

Nomination honors

Tarrant County Tax Assessor-Collector Ron Wright was among those nominated as tax assessor collector of the year recently.

Wright — the local tax assessor collector since 2011 — was nominated by Monte Shaw, Wise County’s tax assessor collector, who said “his strong work ethic, his genuine concern for others, his leadership through the years at TAC, and his cooperative spirit should be given strong consideration for this award.”

Ultimately, Bruce Elfant, Travis County’s tax assessor-collector, was chosen for the honor.
