Records On Display In New 106
By AKerr (09/08/2011)
With redistricting having literally changed Texas’ political playing field, conservatives must remain on their toes going into next year’s primary elections. The new House District 106 is no exception, where a self-proclaimed tax-raiser is being supported in the Republican primary by members of House Speaker Joe Straus’ leadership team.
This new district is made up by parts of The Colony, Little Elm, Cross Roads and Oak Point, as well as the Denton County portion of Frisco. As of today, there are two candidates gearing up for the Republican nomination to this Denton County seat: Amber Fulton and Pat Fallon. Until recently, Ms. Fulton served on the Lewisville ISD school board where she worked to limit voter involvement in tax increase decisions. Mr. Fallon, currently the Mayor Pro Tem of Frisco, fought successfully against tax hikes and new debt.
Having freshly lost her re-election bid on the Lewisville ISD board in May, Fulton quickly announced her intention to fill a seat in the Texas House. She proclaimed that Denton County taxpayers “need a fiscal conservative fighting for them in Austin.”
