Ben Wear Makes Excuses For Mike Krusee

Posted in Election 2006, Williamson County at 11:29 pm by wcnews

It wasn’t just toll roads Ben. The first part of that slogan was Scholls Yes!, remember? Karen Felthauser had the support of the education community in Round Rock, Krusee is, a and always has been, a huge voucher supporter. He has some personal issues, that most people in politics, Republican or Democrat, in Williamson County are aware of, just ask around, and he’s not a “Proven Conservative”. Being a Perry rubber stamp on everything toll roads did hurt him, but it wasn’t the only issue.

    Tolls were certainly NOT the only issue!

    I received a lot of support from the state as well as the local education community. Education Round Rock, the Texas Federation of Teachers and the Texas State Teacher’s Association all urged their members to vote for me. The TFT also designated me one of their Educator to Voter candidates and arranged for education employees from across the state to write letters to district 52 constituents asking them to vote for me. I received support and volunteers from the Central Labor Council of the AFL-CIO and the Communication Workers of America. I was endorsed by the Texas State Employees’ Union members who are not happy about the move to underfund their departments and privatize their jobs. I was endorsed by the Texas Chapter of National Association of Social Workers who are not happy about the cuts to the Children’s Health Insurance Program.
