As you well know; Mark Dorazio vacated this seat, and is now the Republican nominee for the Texas House of Representatives for District 122.
Mark has done a great job and served Texas very well as SREC. Many of us have encouraged Mark, and plainly told Mark it is time for him to take this next step.
Well, the same goes for me. I have been involved in many campaigns. Promoting candidates, and fighting for the greater good of Texas. From Gun Rights to Family Rights, to Protect Texas Monuments, and the Texas Border. I have been involved in testifying to the Texas Legislation, and actively fighting for Texans.
Like Mark; it is time for me to take this next step. We need someone for SREC SD 25 who has integrity, and I do, We need someone who has been involved, and I have. I have integrity, and I certainly have the best interest of Texas, and Texans in my heart, and in my mind.
Senate District 25 Delegates, Vote for Me, Gregory Switzer at the Republican State Convention. I will do my best to fill Mark’s shoes.
