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 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.”

  • Faith Houston Update: Woodfill v Parker

    Update: Woodfill v Parker

    I want to bring to your attention recent developments in our case against Mayor Annise Parker.

    As you probably know, the Mayor of Houston, Annise Parker, has worked to suppress the voice of 55,000 Houstonians who petitioned our government to hold a referendum vote on her ordinance that allows, among other things, biological males who are gender confused to use a female restroom and locker room. As a result, we filed suit, Woodfill v. Parker. Mayor Parker has now embarked on a city-wide intimidation campaign of area churches. It is nothing less than a full assault on our pastors’ religious liberties as provided by the First Amendment. As part of the litigation, Mayor Parker has subpoenaed the communications of local pastors, including their sermons and private messages. The Mayor got a few sermons herself from key leaders on her outrageous vendetta.

    Stand with Houston Pastors, Sign The Petition

    I recently had the honor of standing with state leaders in support of five Houston pastors that have come under attack by Houston Mayor Annise Parker. These pastors have been targeted for their role in speaking out against Mayor Parker’s liberal LGBT agenda for the City of Houston. Her agenda, as outlined in a recent ordinance, would allow members of the opposite sex to use each other’s restrooms under the false premise of “gender identification.”

    Many elected officials and organizations, including Senator Ted Cruz, Attorney General Greg Abbott, State Senator Ken Paxton, State Senator Dan Patrick, Senate candidate Paul Bettencourt, Texas Values, and the Houston Area Pastors’ Council, have spoken out publicly against the Mayor’s assault on religious liberty. We need more Texans and elected officials to publicly stand with these brave pastors!

    District G Council Member Calls Administration Action “Unimaginable”

    Houston—District G Houston City Councilmember Oliver Pennington today called on Mayor Annise Parker and City Attorney David Feldman to withdraw the subpoenas issued to five Houston area pastors for communications with their congregants. In his statement, Pennington said, “Earlier in the week I was disappointed when I learned that the City of Houston had issued subpoenas for the sermons of five area pastors. I was disappointed that the City had taken this action that undermines the First Amendment rights and freedom of religion guaranteed by our Constitution. Our founders put protections in place to protect citizens and religious institutions from government, not the government from its citizens.”

    Mayor Parker’s Assault on Houston Area Pastors

    Mayor Parker recently subpoenaed the sermons and other communications belonging to several area pastors in a lawsuit in which the pastors are not even involved. It appears Mayor Parker is very concerned about the lawsuit we filed after the city council rejected valid petitions to repeal a law that allows members of the opposite sex into each other’s restrooms. Mayor Parker is demanding that the pastors, who are not party to the lawsuit, turn over their constitutionally protected sermons and correspondence so she can see if the pastors have ever opposed or criticized her and/or her agenda for the City of Houston.

    Mayor Parker is an employee of the people, not a dictator who will not tolerate dissent. She has decided to use the power of the state to suppress the First Amendment freedoms enjoyed by Pastors and all Americans.

  • Houston A Time To Make Tough Decisions

    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.
