Day 4 The heart of the lion…

As we continued our travels through south Texas, the feedback has remained consistent from day one. Democrats…people…voters…do not want to be led by the nose.  People are aware of recent political developments, yet they continue to demand change, and that is the pressing issue. The need for economic development and health care is urgent and people don’t want to and can’t wait another four to eight years for improvement. The message is as loud and clear today,  as it was in 2006. “We cannot afford to wait any longer.”

One gentleman put it like this…“We vote every time, and nothing changes. Why should we continue to vote, if that vote is not going to change anything!”  It’s time for change, but more than that we need someone who is actually going to do something to help us!  

There is only one winning strategy and that is to win in 2010. Simply priming for the chance of victory in 2012 or 2018 is unacceptable! 

This campaign is not taking anything or anyone for granted. If we can’t make it to every corner of the state, it will not be from lack of effort, or lack of desire.       

Listening to people talk about the state of our state, the urgency in addressing their needs, the lack of concern on the part of those who have had plenty of opportunity to make a difference and haven’t ..there is only one conclusion to make from their message.

Folks, it’s time to stop priming, and recruiting candidates and get to work on supporting candidates. Many of you may desire a candidate that is more politically savvy, but folks, if any individual would have had an ounce of genuine desire to step up to the plate and take on the GOP, he or she would have and should have taken that leap long before now. At this point, their dash into the governor’s race is at the summons of “someone” and only to improve the numbers for the possibility of a win in the distant future. Some people can’t wait that long!

The governor’s race has never been more entertaining…on both sides. People are joining the race and people are bowing out of the race. Yes, I’m in…no, I’m not. I am considering a run. We need him, we need her, she will be a good candidate, no, he will be a strong democrat, she will be a good choice, she keeps changing her mind, and he said he was not going to run, but now he will.

From the start, Felix has been serious about tackling the difficult issues that plague our great state. He committed to the people of Texas. He is willing to take on the challenge. He is not willing to wait for the perfect timing, the perfect election year, or the perfect candidate. We shouldn’t either.  

Tomorrow, we will wrap up our Thanksgiving Day-Goodwill Tour. It has been an interesting tour. We met with some incredible people, with incredible energy, and positive about the possibility of a Democratic win in 2010. It is clear that all of us have a winning strategy, but the only one that is going to work, is the one that includes Felix Alvarado as your Democratic candidate in March and Nov. 2010.

Day of revelation!

As I keep saying…you can’t keep a good man down!

Day 2 has been extremely productive, indeed interesting and beyond energizing!!!  The people of Texas are talking. We stopped and visited with individuals in Laredo and a couple of other places…let me tell you folks… they have been ready and waiting for change, and this election cycle they are prepared to do what it takes to make that change happen!

Considering the events of the last 48 hours… somehow the number of candidates does not seem to be as concerning, as much as the selection of candidates lacking genuine concern for the needs of all Texans. This message has been and continues to be loud and clear! 

Let me tell you, when we started this campaign, we started with a simple plan and so far our plan has not failed. We are moving forward and are more than ready to face any challenger. There may yet be other candidates considering a gubernatorial run, but be assured that come Dec. we will be meeting in Austin to file for a place on the Democratic ballot, because the people of Texas are ready for change.  You are more than welcome to join us, but remember failure is not an option. Enough is enough! It is time!  I will post a few pics and video tomorrow…g’night!


Felix Alvarado continues to focus on the need for creating immediate employment.

Fort Worth, TX,  Unemployment in Texas continues to rise and the Republican candidates for governor are more concerned about pursuing their ideological base than seeking solutions that benefits Texas. The Senate candidate is more concerned about voting no on health care than seeking a solution to the health care needs of Texas.

I have proposed immediate solutions to create employment in Texas. Government does have a purpose and that is providing for the needs of Texans.

Felix…the only real choice!

Felix supporters in attendance at TCU, tell me that tonight was Felix’s night. Awesome! That means…as March 2, 2010 nears…this campaign and this candidate will be extremely difficult to ignore. Thanks to all…for your support. 

Join us in Austin, Dec. 7, 2007 (location: TBA) Felix will visit with the TDP to file for a place on the ballot (and he won’t be paying with a check!).      Check back for additional details.

Also, there are still many more opportunities to meet Felix as we continue making our way around the state.  Next week we will be taking a drive around south Texas, so keep your ears open for dates and times.

Alvarado 2010!!! The only real choice for the people of Texas and for the future of Texas!!!  🙂

No cheap shots here…

Politics is dirty business…that’s “politics as usual.” The Alvarado campaign is not into “politics as usual” and will not resort to rhetorical tactics to win in 2010.  

We cannot deny the fact that some people are still waiting for a winning candidate, but we accept it.   We are also aware that many Texans have yet to give serious thought to the governor’s race, much less recognize who is running for governor, with the exception of Perry and Hutchinson.  We are working diligently at reaching as many people as humanly possible, with available resources, with dignity and resolve to pass on our message of hope.

Felix Alvarado is in this race to win.  In our travels, the message has been loud and clear…things need to change.  Felix Alvarado is about bringing real change to Texas government.

The real battle, and the only one that matters is set for Nov.2, 2010. People are ready for change. Whether or not that change will take place in 2010 is yet to be known. Our goal, is to make sure it does happen.

Every voter has but one vote to cast.  Before casting your vote, answer this question. Right now, what does your future look like?

Talk is cheap!

Teachable moments…

Taking advantage of teachable moments is one thing Felix does well. Competing against one other gubernatorial candidate, recorded messages and representatives, Felix addressed students at AHS about the future of Texas and asks the question “Do you know what your future looks like?” This is a question we should all be asking ourselves. 

The Alvarado Campaign wishes to thank Ms. Johnston and the AHS’s Debate Club for coordinating this event, but more importantly for inviting Felix to participate in this wonderful event.

Keep up…
