Jim Keffer Chooses To Attack Cullen Crisp’s Children In Latest Campaign Mailer

February 5, 2014 8:11 pm 7 comments

Struggling to keep pace with grassroots challenger, liberal incumbent Jim Keffer attacks Crisp family for their decision to send their children to Trinity Valley School.

GRANBURY, TX— Incumbent Representative Jim Keffer of Eastland has used the last month to resort to high dollar personal attacks on conservative Cullen Crisp. Disturbingly, the latest hit piece attacks Crisp for sending his children to a private school. This attack is just part of a tidal wave of negative mail unleashed on GOP primary voters in District 60 by Keffer.

Responding to the attacks, Cullen Crisp commented, “Representative Keffer should be very careful about going after my children. Any father would not tolerate such attacks. My children are not an issue in this campaign, nor do I plan to apologize for sending them to a school of our choosing. I believe public schools are a cornerstone of rural communities and I also believe parents have the right to decide what the best educational option is for their children.”

“If Jim Keffer or his consultant believe my family is up for discussion he can bring it up in person,” continued Crisp. “I hope Jim decides to show up at a series of community forums scheduled for next week before early voting begins. I know voters are eager to hear about the issues, like Jim’s record of supporting in-state tuition for illegal aliens, or his decision to vote himself a 12% pension increase this session.”

Cullen and his family run a farm in Granbury, where they grow strawberries, peaches, and harvest honey. Cullen is also owner of Crisp-LaDew Fire Protection, which specializes in fire sprinkler and fire alarm systems. Cullen is very active in the District 60 community, founding the Texas Heroes Foundation, and is currently planning the 3rd Annual Texas Independence Day Celebration. Cullen currently is a member of the Lake Granbury Coalition, on the board of Hood County Development District 1, and played an integral part of the development of Acton Nature Center near Granbury. The Crisp family are committed Christians. Cullen is married to his beautiful wife, Ashley, and together they have two children, Carson and Maddie.

  • Jim Keffer has done very little for Granbury or the Brazos Valley area in regards to lake conditions. The BRA has run amuck way too long. It’s time to replace incumbent Jim Keffer with fresh blood and new ideas for this district. Vote for Cullen Crisp.

  • it takes a real big man to bring a mans children into politics, no i take that back a real man wouldn’t that. mr. keffer thats pretty much low life. have a good day !!

  • Well the fact that he wants to be on any board in the town of Granbury but NOT support our school system is a problem! If our public schools are not good enough for your children then do not run for any public position in our town. You work for the city, you support all of it. You lost my vote

  • Where can we read what Keffer said about this?

  • Being that Mr Keffer has a sin who is homosexual, you would think he would show some sensitivity to others children, and personal attack on them.

  • Sorry, Crisp cannot have it both ways.

    He is running on public education issues, yet he chooses to send his kids to one of the most expensive private schools in the state of Texas. And stop the false indignation. He mentioned YOU choosing to not support public education.

    Are you a believer in public education or not?

    Houston City Council Is Legislating Immorality To Allow Boys Into The Girls Bathrooms and Showers

    For many years we have all heard from both the Right leaning Democrats and the Left leaning Republicans that we cannot “legislate morality”. While for now I will not address the stupidity of this I would like to make a few points for you to ponder.

    The City of Houston is trying to legislate morality, but in there their Godless hearts they will fist attempt to re-define “morality” before they legislate it so that it to include the sexually confused and the sexually perverted.

    When you go to vote during early voting and on November third, and hopefully you will vote, the first thing you will see is Proposition one, also known as the HERO or “bathroom” ordnance.

    Local Conservative’s Call Out HCRP Paul Simpson For Lying

    For many years Christian Conservatives within Harris County have fought to keep Harris County Red. But it was more than just keeping it Red because we like the color. We fought to keep it Red because of what the Red stood for. If you are confused on what I mean you can read for yourself in the Texas Republican Party Platform.

    Harris County was one of the last county parties to fall into the moderate realm where we have been told to drop the Godly values that define who we are, those values that do not blur the lines between right and wrong. But over time the left was able to slowly eat away at the edges and infiltrated the Party with those who say “I agree with you but we have to be inclusive and not turn people away. We have to win them with love understanding and tolerance.”

    What Can I do To Stop Passage Of Proposition One, The “Bathroom Ordinance”?

    So often we hear of government atrocities, and think that we would like to do something to stop them, but feel powerless to do so. With corruption at every level of government, politicians who refuse to listen to us, and limited personal resources, far too often we are tempted to just give up and cave in to these violations of our God-given freedoms.

    I want to give you some practical steps of action that you can take to combat this overreach by the Houston city council. At the end of this article you will have the resources and tools to really make a difference in this very important battle for the future of the city of Houston.

    As you are aware, Proposition one (the bathroom ordinance) will be on the ballot this fall. Early voting is less than one month from now, and if you follow this plan of action faithfully, every day, you will be certain of making a positive impact on our city’s future.

    Mayor Parker and the Houston City Council wage a War on Women!

    Mayor Parker and the Houston City Council have placed Proposition One, the H.E.R.O. ordinance, on the ballot this fall. The ballot language reads as follows:

    “Proposition 1: [Relating to the Houston Equal Rights Ordinance.] Are you in favor of the Houston Equal Rights Ordinance, Ord. No. 2014-530, which prohibits discrimination in city employment and city services, city contracts, public accommodations, private employment, and housing based on an individual’s sex, race, color, ethnicity, national origin, age, familial status, marital status, military status, religion, disability, sexual orientation, genetic information, gender identity, or pregnancy?”
