Split the ticket

I’m asking fellow Republicans in State District 94 to split their ticket and vote for Cole Ballweg.

I was Cole’s grandmother’s pastor for nine years and have known Cole since he was a kid. Cole is a third generation Arlington resident. If elected he will represent us with honor, dignity and thoughtful consideration of our city’s best interest, not what some fringe group wants. Frankly, Cole’s life history and values are better aligned with Arlington residents than his opponent.

By electing Cole we will have a mature, stable, pro-Arlington state legislator who will not embarrass our city. As a former Arlington councilman and school trustee myself, I can assure voters that it helps us to have members of both political parties representing our city in Austin.
