Mike Lang of Granbury speaks Thursday, March 12, at Tea Party Patriots of Eastland County (TPPEC). The meeting begins at 7:00 p.m. at the Myrtle Wilks Community Center, 1498 Interstate Highway 20 in Cisco.
Mike will be listening, too. That’s because on March 2 he announced his candidacy for Texas House District 60, seeking the seat currently held by ten-term incumbent, Rep. Jim Keffer.
Mike and wife Katie have one son, Ryan, 24. Katie currently serves as County Clerk in Hood County. Three years ago, as a 27-year veteran of the Fort Worth police department, Mike ran a successful campaign to become Hood County Precinct 3 constable. He resigned that position after filing for HD 60.
Mike discussed this work experience in his announcement, but added, “Integrity is the most vital qualification. I am committed to fulfilling your trust every single day.
“Work ethic is next. This is a big district geographically, and I plan to use every means available to stay connected and engaged. I won’t be part time.”
Mike listed a number of concerns for House District 60 and the state of Texas. “Border security. Rule of law. Property rights. Constitutional compliance is a big one. Free markets. Taxes. Common core and federal involvement in education. I am a strong supporter of second amendment rights, sanctity of life, and term limits.”
He quipped, “Start looking for my replacement now, because I don’t plan to stay long in this office.”
Mike noted, “House District 60 is one of Texas’ most conservative districts. It’s time to elect a candidate who represents those views.”
If that sounds like the representation you’ve been looking for, now is the time to meet Mike Lang, measure his integrity, ability and commitment, and share your concerns with him.
Join Mike and TPPEC Thursday, March 12, 7:00 p.m., at the Myrtle Wilks Community Center in Cisco.
