Happy New Year!!

Ended the year in Odessa, Texas. Met some great people. I am looking forward to a return trip, the next 60 days, and the Primaries. We will continue touring the state for the remaining weeks. There are still many places left to visit, but so far, the response has been awesome.  We will need plenty of help before the Primaries. So, if you have time, contact us.  Felix

Things get done when ordinary people do extraordinary things.

You can buy a campaign package and make it work for you, but a prepackaged candidate… I have my doubts.


Democracy Trumped & Trampled

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: 

Fort Worth, TX, Dec. 31, 2009:  Felix Alvarado has focused on bringing leadership and vision to Texas, on creating jobs, and addressing the educational and health care needs of all Texans.  A rare quality in today’s political landscape that makes Felix uniquely qualified to serve as governor of the state of Texas.

The values I learned in my 28 year military career shape my life today.  First, I learned that, as Americans, we have an obligation to serve God and Country.  Like most of us who placed our lives on the line for our country, I did this voluntarily. 

I served to protect and defend everyone’s right to do exactly what I am doing right now; to participate in the democratic process.  I would never deny anyone this constitutional right, but would instead encourage everyone to participate. 

 I hope that everyone who reads this article is as outraged as I have been, at the suggestion that all candidates remove their name from the ballot, so that one person can become the anointed candidate.  Yes, an anointed candidate, because he has yet to prove his leadership skills outside his circle of acquaintances.  We have elected other anointed candidates, and all have failed miserably to accomplish their prime objective. Words cannot explain the disgust that I feel.  What is even more disgusting is that responsible people, those who consider themselves leaders, put the mandate of the party above the needs of the people they represent.  This is utterly disgusting. This is, however, politics as usual.

Further, I cannot express how offensive I find the allusion that the only reason why I am seeking to be Governor of our Great State of Texas, is because I am Hispanic.  I heard these same snide remarks in the military, because I was achieving rank that few minorities attained. I had a record of accomplishment in the military, as I have a record of accomplishment today. That is why I was promoted in the military and that is what I carry into the campaign, a lifetime of accomplishment.

I am running because I know I can do better for the working-class, for our Seniors who labored throughout their lives, for our Texas Warriors who risked their lives in the combat fields and now feel abandoned by our government, having to travel several hundred miles to obtain the VA medical care which their service-related wounds and illnesses require.   Our Veterans deserve better care from our State and Federal governments.  As a combat Veteran, I know what they are encountering – and will fight to help them.

I am proud to be an American of Hispanic heritage. I need your help to bring real change to government and I am confident that together we can win.

Felix Alvarado for Texas Governor
USAF Retired Vietnam Veteran

Enough is enough!

The message is loud and clear.

Our veterans should not have to travel over two-hundred miles to get the medical care they need. For years, our Rio Grande Valley veterans have been clamoring for a VA hospital. Enough is enough! If elected, I promise to use all my power – as governor to make a VA hospital in the Rio Grande Valley a reality.  Let’s face it – all we need is the political will!
