Roger Williams is meeting with the North Hays County Republicans on Sunday in Dripping Springs. It’s a private event, not open to the public.
And so…. the TX-25 Dripping Springs constituency is holding its own Town Hall meeting beforehand, and we’d love you to join us. We have sent Roger’s office an official invite too!
Whether Roger comes or not, we will ask our questions and share our concerns.
This is not a protest; it’s an opportunity for constituents to make sure our elected representative hears our voices.
It’s important that we keep this event law-abiding and calm. Avoiding justified questions from his constituents should embarrass Rep. Williams.
Sunday, February 19, 4:30 – 6 p.m.
Flores Mexican Restaurant
2440 E Hwy 290, Austin, Texas 78620
RSVP to help hold Roger Williams accountable!
In last week’s newsletter, Rep. Roger Williams asked constituents to email him at TexasCD25@mail.house.gov.
Here is what he says:
I am compiling thoughts, opinions and firsthand accounts from my fellow Texans, so that my policies can be better tailored to fit your needs.
If you are an entrepreneur who feels like government regulation is preventing you from being competitive in your industry, I want to know about it. If you are unable to meet payroll because you are spending too much time and money on costly and unnecessary compliance measures, I want to hear your story.
If you think you are sending too much of your hard earned money to Uncle Sam or feel you are spending too much time filling out paper work this tax season, please tell me.
If you are finding out for the first time how difficult it is to get approved for a mortgage or any other kind of loan even though you are in good standing, write me.
Please share your story by emailing me at TexasCD25@mail.house.gov . I very much look forward to hearing from you.
So, if you are a constituent of Rep. Roger Williams’ TX-25, please share your story with him.
Since Roger is on record wanting to repeal the Affordable Care Act — with NO replacement — this is an opportunity to share your story of how the ACA helped you or someone you know. Maybe you couldn’t start your business until the ACA made health insurance more affordable. Or perhaps losing the ACA would force you to close your business because the costs of health insurance would be too high to continue. It doesn’t have to be about the ACA, but the more personal you can make your story, the better.
If your are not in TX-25, please do not email Rep. Williams. You can find ways to contact your own rep here.
Roger likes to carry things to the extreme. While other Republicans call for “repeal and replace” of the ACA, Roger wants to “repeal but NOT replace“! It’s a form of one-upmanship to see who can stir up their base the most.
But this one may backfire. While other politicians follow Steve Bannon’s white-nationalist-loving Breitbart on Twitter, or even grant Breitbart exclusive interviews, Roger takes it a step further:
HE WRITES FOR THEM
This man represents over 700,000 Texans. We’re guessing the overwhelming majority of those are not white nationalists.
Call Roger Williams and ask him if he agrees with the white-nationalist opinions espoused in Breitbart. And if not, why is he talking to them, let alone writing for them?

TX-25 constituents are at Rep. Roger Williams’ office today. Mr. Williams does not care to meet the people he represents. They have been told that his office is “on private property” and the group cannot go in — only one or two people at a time.
