An OPEN LETTER from Randy Kubosh in support Jolanda Jones over Jack Christie for City of Houston Council

At Large Position No. 5 The City of Houston At Large No. 5 Position is a NON-PARTISAN ELECTION. The issue with me is, "who would be the most fiscally conservative person in that position representing us" I know that many of my Republican friends say that Jack Christie is a conservative candidate and a good republican. However, recently, a couple of them have told me that Jack did not vote all that conservative while on the State Education Board. I don't have the records to back that up, but I have heard it is out there. But I did look up the Harris County Republican Party records and found that Jack Christie has never been an (RLC) Republican Leadership Council Member. The minimum threshold of giving is $1,000 annually to be a member. I have the records because I am Secretary of the HCRP Finance Committee. In addition, I looked up the Texas Ethic Commission Finance Report for the past 4 years which shows that Jack has given Republican candidates around $700 over that period of time. In addition, he gave two liberal democrats campaign contributions. I am reminded of something Jesus said "where your treasure is, there will your heart be also." Attached is the Texas Ethics Report. Honestly, I wish Jack had run against someone else, not Jolanda Jones. I'm not saying he isn't a good guy, here, but rather that "what has Jolanda Jones done wrong that warrants her not being reelected?" Nothing. She is the most fiscally conservative person on city council. We need more people like her with courage to stand up to the mayor! I plead with you to read the summary of what she stated below and to watch the YouTube video I have attached to this email which reflects the passion that she has for the people.

Jack Christie is asked if Mayor Parker wants him to win, he responds by saying yes! v=YqVZIUM4qiM&feature=channel_video_title Summary of Jolanda Jones speech to the Downtown Pachyderms on Thursday November 17th 2011: - She can work with anybody - She is a criminal defense lawyer - Her son is a Young Life Leader who has never been in trouble - She is doing a good job as a parent - She is a small business owner supporting a college student - She has the vast majority of the endorsements - She has some elected officials who support her, but she believes the most important support is that of the people - She finished first in the general election so the people have validated her - She does things behind the scenes when that works, but if you want government as usual then you should probably not vote her - She believes that in times when the government is trying to intrude into your life then someone needs to stand up to government and that person is her - She knows a lot of people would like for her to be quiet, but when the government is trying to take your property rights, somebody better stand up, and that somebody is her - She believes that when the government is trying to impose taxes, first of all, without coming to the people first, she has a problem with that and that somebody better stand up and that somebody is her - She believes that when the government is increasing in all the city's fees, including permitting fees which she believes is making an unfriendly business environment that somebody needs to stand usomebody somebody is her - She believes that when the government is trying to take our property rights with a historic district designation, instead of allowing a property owner to determine what he/she does with his/her property, which makes remodeling more expensive, and she doesn't believe that your neighbors should be able to tell us

what to do with our own property, somebody needs to stand up and that somebody is her - She is not afraid to stand up for the little guy or girl - She campaigned against the Red Light Cameras and when the mayor turned them back on, she fought to get them turned off - She was the only elected official who went to the red light camera community meetings and helped them organize because she respects the will of the voters - She says if you want someone who is just going to be quiet and let the government intrude into your life, then vote for somebody else - She says if you want someone who is going to listen to the people, then you want Jolanda Jones - She says she can work with anybody both behind the scenes or otherwise - She says that there were too many unanswered questions about the drainage fee because $5 never added up, so she campaigned against Prop # 1 (the Drainage Fee) - She respects the will of the voters so once that election results came and she realized the people voted for it, eventhough she knew it wasn't going to be $5, she fought to make the fee as fair as it could be because that's what elected officials are supposed to do - advocate for the people - She says the Chronicle doesn't like her very much, they talk about her all the time because they want her to go along to get along but she will not - She says that we aren't going to find anybody on city council that is more fiscally conservative because she questions everything, - She knows that people complain at city council because the council meetings run longer when she is there but that is because she questions things - She finds it obnoxious and offensive that the city council spends over $100 million dollars a week in 30 minutes - She believes in providing the people with the information they request because she believes the public is entitled to know what the city is going to do before they do it - She says nobody will fight for us like she will - She is unafraid

- She grew up really tough - She has been shot at - She is the child of a Marine/Vietnam Veteran and the niece of a Marine/Vietnam Veteran and the granddaughter of an Army Veteran and she fights really hard for veterans because when her dad, who was an outgoing guy when he enlisted in the Marines but he was changed when he came back - Her father blew his brains out and she was with him when he did it, and so did her uncle because the military forgot about her dad and her uncle - Her Dad and uncle's experience in the military is the reason why she fights hard for Veterans because when you serve, your family serves and your children serve - She raises money for children of Veterans because people don't appreciate them, she knows, she is one of them - She is passionate about the people - She believes if you listen to her opponents and to the Chronicle you are going to believe she is somebody she is not - By the way, she does not have the endorsement of Bill White or Peter Brown because she listens to the people It is my sincere wish that you would go vote for Jolanda Jones in this coming December 10th City of Houston Run-Off Election. But not only for your vote but that you would encourage everyone you have any influence with to vote for her as well. Rarely do we find someone with the PASSION and COURAGE as Jolanda Jones. "She has been and will continue to be the MOST FISCALLY CONSERVATIVE PERSON ON THE CITY OF HOUSTON COUNCIL." My prayer is that you seriously consider what I have stated here.
