Dave is a Conservative Republican who believes in bringing common sense to the political arena rather than inventing new ways to manipulate the system. Our political system has turned into a bickering match instead of a system that tries to work together for the common good of the public.
With only 18% of registered voters voting in the last primary, May 29th, Dave understands the need to help get voters to the polls. No longer can we stand aside and only hope for the right candidate to be elected; we all have to work hard to accomplish our goals.
Let's work together to take our local, state, and federal government back from career politicians that only have special interests in mind and let's give it back to the great people of the United States of America.
Dave humbly asks for your vote on July 31, 2012.

Congressional District 6 candidate Joe Chow responded to The Ellis County Press March 29, 2012 article titled "Congressional hopeful attends pro-Muslim events."
In a press conference on April 5, Chow stated "A local newspaper has drawn a skewed version of a past event I attended, which has created a false impression." Click here for the raw audio of Chow's press conference.
The Ellis County Press provided the Chow campaign the opportunity to comment on the subject matter, which they did and which was published with the original article. The Ellis County Press included factual information that can be easily verified on the Internet and also comments from the Chow campaign and the Itamar Gelbman campaign. Gelbman is another candidate running for Congressional District 6 against Joe Barton.
In what was really a non-issue, Gelbman made an issue with his comments. The Ellis County Press merely reported both sides of the issue and included facts to support or deny each candidate’s comments.
While defending his attendance and clarifying that he does not support one religion over another, Chow quoted the First Amendment and stated "The First Amendment offers solid guidance for situations such as this action called into question."
Considering that the First Amendment also prohibits the "abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press," Ellis RTK finds it troublesome that the Chow campaign would threaten to sue The Ellis County Press.Read more...
