Candidate thanks voters for constable election
I wish to express my gratitude to the wonderful and encouraging Parker County neighbors and residents of Precinct 4 for your support and for the compliment of being elected as your next constable. We are more than just the southeast quadrant of Parker County. We are a community that tips their hats and waves hello. We are a courteous and faithful community that respects each other; and I want to thank all of you, no matter who you voted for in this election, for being true to the these qualities. They are qualities that set you apart. They are qualities of a people that bring out the best in a community and will bring out the best in me as your constable. They are qualities that make me want to serve you.
This campaign was the longest primary in the history of the State of Texas. We have all weathered this political storm and come through on the other end. I want to thank my opponents for running a spirited campaign and for their honest desire to serve you.
Again, I am flattered and grateful for the responsibilities you have entrusted to me. I look forward to rolling up my sleeves and getting to work for you.
Parker County Precinct 4
Area resident will challenge Rep. King in November race
My name is Matthew Britt and I am running for State Representative for District 61 (Parker and Wise counties) against Rep. Phil King.
Having lived in District 61 my entire life, a product of both the community and schools of the area, I have a deep understanding of the values shared by local Texans. I have been a student of Decatur High School, Weatherford College, the University of Texas at Austin and the University of North Texas.
At this crucial time in our state’s history, we must fight even harder than before to maintain our integrity. Our education budget has been slashed, our legislators are often caught in unethical acts, and the well-being of our families is at risk.
Because of this, I believe it is time to take action and stand up to Austin. We must tell them that we care for our students, our families, and our state. My campaign is based upon the wants and needs of the communities of District 61.
On my website, www.matthewbritt2012.com, I will take your feedback and opinions and make sure that it will be expressed in Austin if I am elected. We can no longer have out of touch, career politicians representing us, it is time for the people to have a true say. I hope that you will join me in the fight to secure our children’s future, reclaim our government, and protect the well-being of our community and our families.

NOW HEAR THIS: Is that a rainstorm on the horizon or a West Texas sandstorm?
One of the most defining aspects of my formative years during the 1940s and ‘50s, was the epic Drought of the Fifties. Lives were disrupted and the Texas economy was dealt a devastating blow. I would estimate that over half of the farmers in Parker County lost everything and were forced to move to the city in order to find work and feed their families.
NOTES FROM THE JOURNEY: Remembering a father's gift
Among the things I like best about Father’s Day, in addition to the expressions of love from my children, are the treasured memories that the celebration calls up – especially the memories of my own Dad.

We are broke we can’t help our own citizens. You know the sequester thing that just devastated the budget. No money for military, education, police, teachers and no money for tours of the White House.

Were the “good old days” really as good as we tend to remember them?
Letter to the Editor – June 2, 2013
The misinformation being presented regarding this administration’s unwarranted investigation of the Associated Press is astounding.
MEaP – a refreshing ‘aftertaste’
The regular 83rd Texas Legislative Session is now in the history books. As a school board member, I find it interesting that every session seems to leave me with a lingering flavor – an aftertaste.
TISCIONE: Truth … is it important?
It seems that every day a new story is breaking that reveals a lie told to the public. I am amazed that some, possibly many, don’t seem to care.
OPED: Champions of First Amendment deliver for Texas and its citizens
When the dust settles from another hard-fought legislative session, the people of Texas will have a clearer picture of current events in the Lone Star State, thanks to the hard work and determination of two Texas statesmen — one Republican, one Democrat.
