RPNC Chair Eric R. Meyers Responds to State of the Union

Corsicana Daily Sun February 8, 2019 I remain hopeful that the State of the Union Address will have a positive impact on both sides of the isle to secure a deal on border security.  The President’s address talked about the need to stop looking at issues as a Republican or a Democrat, but rather as a united front for the best interest of the United States of America.  Regardless, I strongly feel that we must strengthen our Southern Border for many reasons including curtailing the drug, money, and weapons flow from Cartels in Mexico, stopping the influx of “asylum” seeking […]

By Bill McNutt December 4, 2018 All of us are molded by the people we work for, especially when we are young in our careers.  I was blessed to work for George Herbert Walker Bush on three occasions; in the Reagan-Bush White House, on the National Campaign Staff during the 1988 Presidential battle with Michael Dukakis and Texan Loyd Bentsen, and during the Presidential Transition in 1988-89.  A left handed man, who was right politically, was our fellow Texan and a great public servant.
