Representative Steve Toth Endorses Ted Seago For Texas House District 16

Ted Seago

Ted Seago’s campaign today announced the endorsement of Montgomery County’s own, Representative Steve Toth.  Rep. Toth is widely recognized as one of Texas’ new crop of conservative champions, compiling a stellar record in just his first term of office. In the past two weeks Rep. Toth was given “A” ratings from Empower Texans, and Texas Eagle Forum, two of the top conservative watchdogs in the State of Texas.

Representative Toth released his endorsement in the form of a letter to fellow Montgomery County residents, in it he stated:

Fellow Montgomery County Conservatives

All of us are excited to hear about Brandon Creighton’s decision to run for Commissioner of Agriculture. During the 82nd Session, Representative Creighton had the 8th most conservative voting record.  The 83rd Session was another great year for Representative Creighton as he lead the Republican Caucus.

It’s been a tough fight down in Austin, with the establishment constantly pushing for more government spending. The growth in spending leads to less freedom for you and me back home.

Having a proven conservative in Austin to take Brandon’s place is essential to moving Texas forward and that’s why I wanted to be one of the first people to endorse Ted Seago for State Representative in District 16.

Ted is a pastor, businessman a pro-life activist and he holds a PhD in education from the University of Houston.  He’s socially and fiscally conservative and we need him in the Texas House. Ted Seago will fight for our values in Austin and I will be encouraging all of my friends to vote for him in the upcoming Republican primary.

Please reach out to his campaign, visit TedSeago.com and spread the word that we have a great conservative for Montgomery County that is ready to fight for liberty and conservative values.

God Bless,

Steve Toth

The announcement of Representative Toth’s endorsement comes a short time after Seago’s announcement he was considering a run for for District 16. Ted is the Senior Pastor of Grace Community Church at Fish Creek. Married to his wife Johnnie for 35 years, together they own and operate Parent and Child Educational Services (PACES), a classical education and curriculum provider. Ted received a Ph.D in Education from the University of Houston, and together with Johnnie is blessed to have eight children and ten grandchildren.

“I can’t think of a better endorsement to start off our campaign,” remarked Seago. I enjoyed watching Representative Toth battle alongside other conservatives for truth in budgeting, smart infrastructure development, education reform, and the right to life. Those are the values the people of Montgomery County want their leaders to fight for.”

    A Time To Make Tough Decisions

    On Wednesday, June 18, Houston City Council will consider and vote on the City’s annual budget. Despite our region’s economic boom, the City faces serious fiscal challenges. I’m not one to place blame on how we got to this predicament, but as a City Council member and concerned citizen, I am determined to ensure that the City finally takes specific steps towards a real and viable solution.

    The City’s general fund budget grew by over 7.46% in FY13, 7.18% in FY14, and the Mayor’s budget for this year proposes to increase spending by 8.24%. Furthermore, the Mayor proposes to draw down the City’s “fund balance,” or savings account, by $41 million this year to pay for operating expenses.

    Next year, the Administration forecasts a deficit of $141 million. Even worse, the deficit is scheduled to increase exponentially in subsequent years.

    Houston Chronicle Editorial Board criticizes Jared Woodfill For Opposing NDO

    In a recent OpEd titled, “Pass the NDO,” the Houston Chronicle Editorial Board criticizes me and others for opposing an Ordinance pushed by Mayor Parker that would allow, among other things, men who identify as women to use women’s bathrooms and locker rooms. Specifically, the Board states, “Perhaps Woodfill and his ilk would like Parker to institute citywide restroom monitors to assuage their fears.” This is preceded by a subtitle that states, “There is little value in spreading hatred about the transgender community.”

    Whenever and wherever sexual politics is involved, labels are employed to shoot down valid questions about the impact of legitimizing certain activities in the public sphere. The latest in this long string of debates involves Mayor Parker’s proposed city ordinance that would allow, among other things, men who claim to identify as women to use women’s restrooms, locker rooms and other gender-specific facilities.

  • Houston Mayor Parker’s Compromise Makes Sexual Predator Protection Act Worse!

    Mayor Parker’s Compromise Makes Sexual Predator Protection Act Worse!

    After hearing from tens of thousands of Houstonians opposed to Mayor Parker’s Sexual Predator Protection Act, the Mayor recently claimed she was removing the “Bathroom Language” (Section 17-51(b)) which allowed gender confused individuals to utilize the bathroom associated with their gender identity/preference or expression regardless of their biological sex. The Mayor claims she is compromising on her original position. Unfortunately, Mayor Parker’s personal, social agenda dominates her decision making and one must study the language of the Ordinance to appreciate the deceptiveness of the alleged compromise. The Mayor’s “compromise” actually makes the Ordinance more egregious and dangerous to our families.

    Stop Mayor Parker’s Sexual Predator Protection Act

    Last week, the Houston City Council “tagged” (delaying the vote for one week) a vote on Mayor Annise Parker’s ordinance that elevates sexual preference, same sex marriage, and gender confusion to legally protected status. Over ten amendments were presented and tagged.

    It is time for conservative business leaders, community leaders, elected officials, and individuals to take a stand against the personal agenda Mayor Parker is attempting to force upon businesses, churches and religious organizations. It is important for council members to know that we oppose Mayor Parker’s ordinance. It is critical that you continue calling, emailing and faxing city council members. Please forward this email letter to your family, friends, neighbors and business associates and ask them to let their voices be heard.
