If Republicans want to take back the US House of Representatives in 2020, then it all begins in your district. If you live in the 7th congressional district like I do, I recommend voting for Cindy Siegel in the Republican Primary on March 3rd. Early voting is from February 18 to the 28th.
Why Cindy Siegel? Competence. Cindy has been a practicing CPA in the district for over 30 years. She has been the mayor of Bellaire and a city councilmember for 15 years. She is a former Metro Board member, Alzheimer’s Association board member, and others. She has been president of the Greater Houston Council of Federated Republican Women’s Clubs, Past Vice-Chairman and Treasurer of the Harris County Republican Party, Texas Federated Republican Women board member, Past President of the Magic Circle Republic Women’s Club, she is a Republican Precinct Chairman, and she has a long history of voting in Republican primaries and helping Republican candidates get elected. She has incredible experience and heavy grassroots support—just look at her endorsement list.
Wesley Hunt is her primary opponent. He went to West Point and has the military resume. He has the money. It is primarily from PACs and the National Republican Party. He has the Ted Cruz endorsement. He is a 37 year-old combat veteran and has worked in Houston for the past 10 years. Why don’t I support him? He has not voted since 2008 and in that election he voted in the Democratic primary. He did not vote in the 2016 general election. I’ll say it again, he did not vote for President Trump in 2016. In addition, he does not have the grassroots support nor the experience that his opponent has. She has dealt with federal, state, and local officials during two major floods from hurricanes, she has battled the IRS for her clients, and she understands intimately the issues that district 7 residents face every day. I also believe she has the better chance of defeating Democrat Lizzie Fletcher. Lizzie Fletcher most recently voted to impeach the President. Siegel is the most competent.
