FIRST DOWN – FUMBLE. CONGRESSMAN OLSON IS MIA FOR FIRST DEBATE IN ALVIN
Monday evening, February 13, was the first congressional debate for District 22, held at the Alvin Senior Center. While Barbara J. Carlson arrived early and was prepared, unfortunately, Olson was a no show, not even extending a courteous apology to both the Alvin Area Republican Women’s Club and the Bayou Republican Women’s Club for his no show. Both clubs went to great lengths and personal financial outlay in preparing the excellent homemade food for this all-important forum.
Once again, Carlson easily carried the football to the end zone. Her candor, her integrity and her excellent leadership experience arms her with what it takes to take on Washington and lead our country into a better tomorrow.
“She’s the real deal. You can’t fake this. She deeply loves our country and she thoroughly grasps what’s wrong,” one participant stated. “The wealth of experience she brings to the table on all fronts far surpasses who we currently have representing us,” another participant stated.
Carlson, a widow, a mother of two, a small business owner, one who has risen above enormous tragedy in her life and accomplished goals that haven’t been met on a national scale is now courageously stepping up to go to Washington and fight for our beloved nation. “Enough is enough. It’s time that we take our country back. It’s time that Americans close our checkbooks and Congress is held accountable for its unconstitutional and frivolous behavior. It’s appalling what’s happening to all of us. Americans are angry. It’s time to roll up our sleeves and send a true leader to Washington.”
When asked her thoughts about Olson’s no show, Carlson responded, “We expected this establishment incumbent to be a no show. He’s predictable in his thinking that he doesn’t have to answer to the voters. There were no votes on the floor on Monday. Sadly, it’s an enormous disservice to the voters. We’re tracking him and how often he’s in town for various fundraisers and ‘private luncheons’ but unwilling to answer to the voters for his poor rating, his horrific voting record and his lack of leadership."
"It’s time to send Olson home.”
