Federal Legislation Comes to Town

by , Aug 28, 2007 | 8:25 pm

It has been a while since I posted, but the Texas Poker PAC is still working towards our legislative goals. The next Texas Legislative Session begins in 2009, so we are working behind the scenes to get ready for our next push.

In the meantime, I have been appointed as the Texas State Director for the Poker Players Alliance (PPA). The PPA is beginning to work individual states and I believe that what we are doing in Texas will serve as a model for other states.

Currently we are working on individual U.S. congressional districts. So, today I ask if any Pokerati readers live in Texas Congressional District 32. You can see the district boundaries by looking here — it’s mostly parts of Dallas, Richardson, Irving, Addison, and the Park Cities. If so, please send an email here.

More news to come I’m sure. As always, thanks for all of your help.

    Hey Mike, I know you’re the political strategist around these parts, but surely we can give the readers a little more info about what you’re looking for, right?

    I mean is it OK to let them know we are looking for a few good District 32 voters who have an interest in politics, a job outside of it, and all their teeth?

    Sure, teeth are a plus.

    An interest in politics is fine, but not mandatory. And yes, I would prefer to have folks who have a job and are over 18. Registered voters are a plus too.

    I have my teeth!
