Meet Gregory Perry
Gregory Perry is not a career politician or a business man looking for exclusive access. He has spent his life as a public servant with the knowledge and expertise to address the problems Texas is facing. As a retired hydraulic engineer from the Army Corp of Engineers and with a degree in Civil Engineering water resources, he has the skills and experience beyond the politicians currently in Austin to help develop a system of managing our most precious natural resource, water.
However, Gregory Perry’s plans for Texas go far above and beyond just water. In his own words, he primarily is running out of anger. Texas is plagued by vast and deep corruption. Senate district nine is currently being held by Kelly Hancock, who Texas Monthly called the worst in regards to corruption because of what looks like a quid pro quo with large insurance companies. As the co-founder of Advanced Chemical Logistics, Hancock puts his focus on handing out favors to the big businesses as opposed to focusing upon the needs of the people in district nine.
Gregory Perry has seen with dismay all of the corruption that is crumbling that which made our country great. We used to be a country with great aspirations that the whole world looked to for an example of freedom, liberty, and equality. With deregulation and privatization, he has seen us sell out our principals to cater to the ever rising demands of corporate cronyism in our government. If we continue on this path, it is hard to look to the future with hope. As Gregory Perry has said, “I wish to have the honor of standing in the way of that fate.” We must send Gregory Perry to Austin and replace a politician who serves his big money donors and not the people of district nine.
Senatorial District 9
Texas’s Ninth Senatorial District includes area in both Dallas and Tarrant counties. The district includes some or all of the following cities: Dallas, Grand Prairie, Irving, Arlington, Bedford, Colleyville, Euless, Fort Worth, Grapevine, Haltom City, Hurst, Keller, North Richland Hills, Richland Hills, Southlake, Trophy Club, Watauga, and Westlake. The district has changed vastly since the last election as illustrated in the images to the left. Even if you were in a different district last time, it may be time to check again and see if you are now in district nine.
Texas has become one of the most notorious states in regards to gerrymandering district lines. In 2012, a US District Court stated that our redistricting maps were discriminatory. It is not hard to look at the boundary lines of this district and come to the conclusion that it was drawn out in a complicated manner probably with the intention to undermine the opponents of the Republican majority in the Texas legislature. However, gerrymandering is not as effective in the outcome of an election as getting more people out to vote. We want to encourage all residents of district nine to vote regardless of whom you are voting for.
For your convenience, I have included a Google® Map here with the new district lines drawn out on it. Just find your house or other place of residence and if its in the blue region, you are in district nine for the 2014 election and we look forward to you voting!
