Is there Mail in Ballot Fraud in Fort Worth's District 8?

Take a look at the high number of mail in ballots for District 8 & District 5 in Ft. Worth Scroll down near bottom of the page and click on mail in ballot roster for the respective Council Districts, you'll see that most of the mail in ballots come from the zip codes of predominantly black areas of the Districts. WHY?

"Rep. Rafael Anchia, D-Dallas, revisited his conclusion after years of testimony that there have been no cases of in-person voter impersonation in Texas. A bigger problem, Anchia suggested, is likely fraud by individuals abusing mail-in ballots."

Ft. Worth City Hall pulls plug on Candidate Forums being televised

All but two candidates in Ft. Worth Municipal elections taped a question & answer session with our opponents to be shown on the City's Cable Channel. City Hall (Probably, Mayor Mike Moncrief) has ordered that the tapings be halted due to the legalities of the City being involved in politics.
Our City of Ft. Worth is so full of corruption! The City is run like a ....well I won't say.
I hope Ft. Worth votes for change starting next Monday.

Another "forced rape" in the highest crime filled Council District in Ft. Worth - We need Change -- Vote Suzette for Council!

My opponent and her supporters like to shake their head no when I mention that District 8 carries the highest amount of total crime in the entire City of Ft. Worth and has every single year that my opponent has been in office. Kathleen Hicks likes to say, "violent crime is down," I'd like to see her tell that to this victim of what the police department label as "forced rape!" You can find some of the crime stats here Forced Rape, Forced Sodomy, theft from building, vandalism of property, drug/narcotics, trespass of property are all crimes that are UP in District 8.

My way of dealing with crime in this District would be to do the following:
1. Use my people skills, tenacity, belief in accountability of City Departments, reviewing of 911 calls in the District on a weekly basis, working with residents, providing more street lighting in areas that need it, enforcing the Class C Misdemeanor laws, holding offenders accountable, advocating for jail/prison reform that serves its purpose of deterring crime and changing people's way of thinking about how & why they make the decisions they make, holding parents accountable for being involved in their children's education and lives, holding neighborhood associations accountable for their missions -- involve and inform more residents of crimes in the neighborhood, etc. Basically working my butt off in an effective and efficient manner to better this District and rid it of the position of #1 in Crime!!

My opponent & I at forum in East Ft. Worth

Fun time had by all. I am so appreciative to Historic Southside Neighborhood Association and Mr. Al Piper, for stepping up to the plate and holding this forum for the voters. It's a lot of work to do, many hours of prep and organization. I thought is was well done! Food, drinks, laughter, was all good. More Neighborhood Associations should do this for their residents and/or members.

This man is "mad as hell" -- I agree, WE THE PEOPLE......what about us!

How many of us are tired of what's going on in City Halls, State Capitals and Washington? A non-partisan message I find I'm in agreement with

Another show of difference in my opponent and me

I won't show up to meetings late, and ask to be able to speak first because "I" have other events to attend. At this point, all candidates have events to attend. If I cannot make plans to attend an important voters workshop for the Disabled and wait my turn like everyone else, I won't go. I sure as heck won't walk in late and ask for, nor expect, nor will I feel entitled to, special favors for any reason! Another disgusting display of elitism by my opponent.
