A group in Plano has launched a new push to get rid of a city council-member they say is unfit to lead.
Councilman Tom Harrison came under fire after sharing a Facebook video showing girls in hijabs with the words, “Share if you think Trump should ban Islam in American schools.”
Thank You to everyone that has already voted – please text your friends a reminder to vote. Did you know that you may vote early at ANY polling location? Polls are open this week 8-5, 7-7 Saturday, 1-6 Sunday. Let’s elect our best candidates during this Primary, so we can bring home a win in November!
Founder Paul Chabot, 42, started the company in May after making the move from San Bernadino, Calif., to McKinney, Texas, with his own family. Chabot, a Republican, had recently endured a second failed run for Congress.
When asked to describe what the company does exactly, Chabot said, “Our primary job is to help families living in more blue states relocate to red states.” In practice, he collects a commission from the buying and selling of homes.
Chabot’s goal is to establish a series of communities, primarily in North Texas, where entire neighborhoods are populated by conservative Republicans. In a way, what Chabot said he is offering is a chance to step into a time machine.
Early voting has completed, and Election Day is tomorrow!
Unfortunately, early voting turnout has generally been very low county-wide with just a handful of exceptions. There’s a possibility that several races may end in run-off elections since no one will reach 50% of the vote.
To avoid the run-off elections, if you haven’t already PLEASE go vote tomorrow! If you already have, thank you, and encourage your friends and neighbors to go vote as well.
“Plano Candidates Use Apartment Concerns as a Smokescreen to Rescind Plano’s Equal Rights Ordinance and Introduce Bathroom Bill”
Which candidate’s version is the real Plano?
The Plano that was voted “The Best City to Live In Texas” by Money and “The Safest City to Live In America” by Forbes as touted by Mayor Harry LaRosiliere? Or candidate Lily Bao’s version, the Plano where “suburban neighborhood values are threatened” with “mass construction of high-density housing that overcrowds our schools and congests our streets”?
The answer depends on whether you rely more on facts or fear.
It also depends on which version will help you scrap Plano’s Equal Rights Ordinance and pass a version of the Texas Senate’s “bathroom bill.”
