Patriots for Gary

Who am I?

Gary's background has instilled in himself the right, like many others, to be called a patriot.

Gary was born in Texas and has spent most of his life in the state. He and his wife, Maggie, have called Lewisville their home for over 20 years. They raised Maggies son together and have two wonderful grandchildren.

Gary remembers what it was like growing up without much to call his own. He vowed never to live that life as an adult and strived to become a self-made man. He has been working since the age of 12 and understands the value of paying your own way. His blue collar background saw work as a machinist all the way up to a supervisor on major construction projects. His work helped build many of the homes and roads we now enjoy in the DFW area. He and his wife started Brown Remodeling in 2008 to become small business owners and support their own lives and their familys.

Garys stepson Mark served in the US Marine Corp for 8 years, serving as an Embassy Guard in Karachi Pakistan and in Kazakhstan. Later he was sent to fight in Iraq and was wounded, earning a Purple Heart.

Organizations close to Garys heart are the SPCA, The Fisher House, Disabled American Veterans, and the Paralyzed Veterans of the United States.

Why am I running?

A patriot is someone who loves, supports, and defends his country and its interests with devotion. A patriot also regards himself as a defender, especially of individual rights, against presumed interference by the federal government.

Gary wants to defend the people of Texas by supporting Democratic values in the state house.

My Goals

Gary believes education is the key to providing upward mobility for most Texans. The state, as well as corporations, should provide their fair share of education funding. Gary advocates for the use of the Rainy Day Fund to make up the difference for any shortfall in the Texas budget.

Gary is a small business owner and knows that success is the product of hard work and fair taxes. He believes that North Texas should leverage its low taxes, quality of life, and its position as a transportation hub to entice manufacturing jobs into the area. Promoting green technology is also key to job growth.

About the Endorsement Process

The driving force behind all DFA endorsements is our members. We recognize that all politics is local and that what is considered progressive in Los Angeles may be very different from what's considered progressive in Louisville. For this reason, DFA does not have a litmus test of specific progressive positions for which a candidate must stand. Our endorsement is heavily weighted based on these questions:

• Will the candidate move the progressive movement forward in their community?
• Does the candidate have substantial support from our local members?
• Do the candidate's positions and policies fit into the broader progressive movement?
• Is the campaign people-powered and the candidate working to win?

If you have questions, or want to let us know about a candidate in your neighborhood, please call us at (802) 651-3200 or email us at [email protected] .
