Come and meet the man who will fix our budget! - Mike Collier
When: Saturday, July 12, 2014 From 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Where: Wichita County Democratic Party Headquarters, 3308 Kemp
TODAY’S MESSAGE: Moments after Wendy Davis issued an unprecedented debate schedule that includes debates in six cities across Texas, Greg Abbott’s campaign declined. Abbott said no because he would have to defend his record of fighting against hardworking Texans.
- Davis’ proposed schedule would give all Texans in communities across the state the opportunity to hear the clear choice they have for their next governor, but Greg Abbott said no.
- He didn’t just say no to debates. He said no to Houston, San Antonio, El Paso, and Lubbock.
- Wendy Davis knows that debates are a rare opportunity for Texas's communities to hear from the people who want their trust and their vote, and every Texan should get that opportunity.
- Abbott said no because he is too afraid to speak for himself, and too afraid to explain his record to Texans.
- Debates would require Abbot to have to defend these simple facts:
- He served on the oversight committee at our Cancer Prevention and Research Institute and let his donors pilfer tens of millions in taxpayer dollars from cancer patients.
- His donors in the payday lending industry were targeting military personnel with outrageous payday loans. Payday lenders have given Greg Abbott nearly $200,000 in campaign cash.
- He's fighting against nearly 600 Texas school districts in court - that he's defending overcrowded classrooms, teacher layoffs and public school closings.
- He pays some of the women in his office $6,000 less than he pays the men, despite the fact that they do the same work.
- He would veto an equal pay for equal work bill, even though Texas women earn, on average, 79 cents for every dollar a man makes.
- He's not working for women. He's not working for cancer patients. He's not working for our military families. He's not working for our students. Texas, Greg Abbott is an insider, and he's just not working for you.
