Friday, November 10, 2017. On the last day of his 50 City Tour, Brent visited Mt. Enterprise, Bullard, Flint, Noonday, Tyler, and Nacogdoches. Brent has traveled Texas's first congressional district meeting constituents and gathering filing petition signatures.
The most common complaint? People don't feel like Louie Gohmert listens to them or makes an honest effort to effectively represent them. People want their congressman to meet with them, to listen to them, and to represent them--and that's something broad segments of our population here in this congressional district don't feel that Gohmert makes an effort to do.
Other concerns? People want a representative who will work to make college affordable again, commit to protect our rural hospitals, fight to make sure everyone has access to the healthcare they need, and who will stand up for workers, entrepreneurs, and small and family-owned businesses in our communities.
Although this was the end of our 50 City Tour, it is just the beginning of our campaign. I'm committed to spending the next year fighting for the values we all care about: honesty, decency, competency, respect for our democratic institutions, and the notion that in a representative democracy whoever we elect has a duty to listen to and represent everyone.
