The 2014 Election: The Donkey Speaks
November 5th, 2014 by Matt Marxer
There’s an old rock and roll song that says…”Mama said there’ll be days like this”…. but in my house my Mama said “cry, but cry quickly because you’ve still got a whole lotta living to do!”.
I have told this story many times but will say it again…. my start in politics began with a loss. I remember sitting on a curb crying but got up and kept working for Democrats. I’ve seen many wins and losses but never stopped working for what I believe is the right course for America. My passion for politics was forged by a quote from Former Senator and Vice President Hubert Humphrey who implored us to “walk into the sunshine of human rights.”
So first, let us all give a standing ovation to all of the incredible Democrats who were on our ticket. They are some of the best and brightest our County and State has to offer and supporting them has been an honor and the highlight of my life.
Next, know that the battle for 2016 starts today and it starts right here in Tarrant County. It starts with each of us. There are lessons to be learned here:
1. It’s our County, our home and we have to be the ones to defend it
2. It’s a big County and we have to be prepared to work all over it
3. We have got to come together and work together. Republicans in Tarrant County ran a coordinated campaign, Democrats in Dallas County ran a coordinated campaign and look what happened
4. Celebrate our wins. We still have great Democrats in office here in Tarrant County.
Join us at our next CEC meeting to honor our candidates and keep moving.
