COUNTY: BRIDEWELL, 249TH DISTRICT COURT JUDGE RETIRES BEFORE NOVEMBER ELECTION, WHO TAKES HIS PLACE ON THE BALLOT?
With the recently announced retirement of 249th District Court Judge, Wayne Bridewell, voters in both Johnson and Somerville Counties find themselves in a unique situation. Bridewell, who has served as District Judge for more than 31 years, ran unopposed for reelection in the March 2022 Republican primary. Additionally, he faces no Democratic opponent in the November general election. Health concerns, however, subsequently convinced Judge Bridewell to retire, instead of standing for election to another term. Even though his current term expires December 31, 2022, Judge Bridewell indicates that he may step down sometime this coming fall.
The question then becomes how best to proceed with appointing a replacement for Judge Bridewell on the Republican ballot for the November general election, that includes the input of the electorate, while at the same time, respecting the apparatus that is currently in place to handle such a task.
The bulk of the responsibility of, and the authority for appointing a replacement candidate will land on the shoulders of the Johnson County Republican Executive Committee, as well as the Somerville County Republican Executive Committee (since the 249th District Court serves both counties). The county executive committees are usually comprised of the Republican chairman, and the precinct chairmen for each respective county.
The executive committees have been working hard to make sure the electoral processes are fair and transparent. Candidates have been interviewed and background checks conducted.
On Tuesday, August 2, 2022, the public is invited to a special event at the Cleburne Conference Center at 7:00pm, where the candidates will speak to the Executive Committees (1501 W Henderson St, Cleburne, TX 76033) as they prepare for the process of selecting a nominee to the November ballot. The public will also have an opportunity to give feedback to their local representative (Precinct Chairman) before the selection is made.
You have an opportunity to make your voice heard. We all know the consequences of remaining silent, or inactive. Let’s not allow apathy to determine who this important public servant will be.
EVENT: Join us for a free movie and popcorn, featuring 2000 Mules by Dinesh D'Souza.

Regarding Proposition #2: "Authorizes a county to issue bonds to fund infrastructure and transportation projects in undeveloped and blighted areas."
This Proposition passed, but Johnson County should be okay because there would have to be a bond election to approve any of these projects. The tricky thing is getting people to vote on these bond elections! We have seen bonds pass in the past due to very low voter turnout.

GENERAL: #KeepMyBankingPrivate The Biden Administration has proposed requiring all community banks and other financial institutions to report to the IRS on deposits and withdraws of all business and personal accounts with a balance of $600.00 or more, regardless of tax liability. This indiscriminate, comprehensive bank account reporting to the IRS can soon be enacted in Congress and would create an unacceptable invasion of privacy. This IRS bank account profiling is intrusive, and compromises your privacy. Let's work together to spread the word about this misguided proposal. Contact #KeepMyBankingPrivate.

Saturday, September 13, 2021, Robin Wilson hosted a Precinct Chair Meeting and Training Seminar. Precinct Chairs in Johnson County gathered for discussions on a multitude of topics.

A FEW NOTABLE "QUOTES" OF THE DAY:
“You’ve got to be part of the solution, or you’re part of the problem.” – Jerry Allen

We are here for the conservative voters, and it is our goal to provide consistent, relevant information to them, so that they can make their own decisions when casting their vote.
To start, we are offering two dates for this training. However, as TEAMS within the precincts grow, we will continue to offer additional training dates.
Anyone that you know who wishes to volunteer, please make them aware of this training.
