Help Us Welcome Lamar Smith to Hays County!

by: HaysDems

Thu Feb 14, 2013 at 07:48 PM CST

It seems that Congressman Lamar Smith will finally deign to come to Hays County this Monday at 8:00am. He'll be at the Hays County Courthouse at the behest of your favorite County Judge Commissioner Will Conley. Since redistricting, Representative Lloyd Doggett has visited Hays County more than ten times, but to our knowledge, this is the first time Lamar Smith will have descended upon Hays County to mingle with the commoners.

You may know Lamar Smith as the author of the ever-popular SOPA bill, or perhaps as the global warming denying GOP chair of the House Science Committee. You may also know him as the author of a bill to forcibly deport domestic abuse victims, or perhaps the bill to allow the indefinite detention of immigrants.

 But Congressman Lamar Smith is not one to rest on his laurels. This week, he penned an op-ed in POLITICO, urging Republicans to oppose comprehensive immigration reform - not for just any ole legitimate reason, but because he contends it would give Democrats "millions of votes."

Perhaps Lamar Smith should spend less time trying to personally gerrymander his own district, and spend more time trying to win our votes with policies that are in the best interest of our nation, not his party.

We hope you'll join us in welcoming Lamar Smith to Hays County! 

WHO: Congressman Lamar Smith

WHAT: Inaugural Visit to Hays County

WHEN: Monday, February 18, 8:00am

Come ask him your questions and let him know what you think. Maybe he'll even decide to take time out of his busy schedule to visit his constituents a little more often - wouldn't it be nice to know what your congressman looked like?
