I will read you short descriptive statements about each of these candidates for State Senate. Tell
me which one you prefer.

Konni Burton is the current Republican State Senator who calls herself an authentic, Independent,
grass roots conservative consistently supporting an agenda of lower taxes, less government and
expanded liberty-- including more freedom for businesses to grow and create jobs. Burton
consistently supports pro-life policies that restrict abortions and bringing more competition and
parental choice to public schools. Konni Burton also brings her strong Christian values and
experience as a parent with adopted children to her job of State Senator to guide her in decisions
to help Texas families.

Beverly Powell, the Democratic candidate, is a 4th-generation Texan, born in Fort Worth. Beverly
showed tough-minded determination by putting herself through college alongside her two sons and
created a successful local real estate and economic development company. Beverly’s strong
Christian values, passion for public education and generous, caring attitude... has led her to give
back to the community by successfully raising money for a youth scholarship program, becoming
President of the Burleson School Board and Chair of the Texas Wesleyan University Board of
Trustees. As State Senator, Beverly will work to increase public schools funding, raise teacher pay,
reduce skyrocketing property taxes, protect business incentives that spur vibrant economic
development, and limit state government control by letting local communities decide what’s best for
themselves – not Austin politicians.
