Earlier this month, Taegan Goddard — a nationally respected politico — publicly launched Wonk Wire.
Much like Goddard’s well-established Political Wire (a site I admittedly check out everyday), which provides the latest in national political news, whereas Wonk Wire provides an up-to-date avenue on the latest news and tidbits on national public policy. Congressional staffers, policy advisors, and think-tankers can rejoice in this site, for sure. Continue reading
Back in February, the Houston Chronicle’s Ultimate Katy section published a profile, highlighting my commitment to community and public service since graduating Mayde Creek High School.
I wanted to let you know that Monday, May 21st, is the last day to register to vote for the upcoming Primary Election on June 5th.

Since there has been a growing voice over the last few years for the party to return to its’ “roots,” I figured it would be informational and refreshing to post the Republican Party’s inaugural platform, adopted in 1856 in Philadelphia, PA.
The picture to the left is of Musical Fund Hall, site of the very first Republican National Convention in Philadelphia.
The last paragraph should be read carefully, and repeatedly. It speaks to me, and defines why I am a Republican.

I’ve come to know T.J. Zane over the last few years through my involvement with our local San Diego Republican Party. Not just a caring family man, but as President and C.E.O. of the Lincoln Club of San Diego County, his leadership on fiscal reform efforts within the county have been successful and second-to-none.
T.J. is third on the ballot for Republican Central Committee voters within the 77th Assembly District. I’ve proudly voted for him, and encourage you to do so as well.
For more information, please check his SmartVoter profile here: http://www.smartvoter.org/2012/06/05/ca/sd/vote/zane_t/
If you live within Assembly District 77 and are registered Republican, I’d be honored to have your vote!
(Note: The “X” by my name was purely to show emphasis. I did vote for a full slate of 6 candidates, myself included of course.)
Friends, I have put up a Facebook page and I’m encouraging you to “Like” me. I’m hoping to move a lot of my political posts, thoughts, and ideas over to the page instead of my personal account.
With over 1500 friends, I feel a good number of them aren’t too into the political stuff — they’re just awesome, regular people. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but I’m more leaning towards keeping them both separate.
I’ve watched the last two Republican debates before the upcoming New Hampshire, and anyone who knows me will probably tell you that I’ve already made my selection for President, Jon Huntsman. His campaign mantra over the last few months has been putting “country first.” A noble line. A great line. But, it hadn’t hit me until this morning — watching Governor Huntsman defend his service as an Ambassador in Obama’s Administration — did it all start to gel. It clicked. I understood, and could actually personally relate to the Governor. Continue reading
Here is a Letter to the Editor I penned to the San Diego Union-Tribune regarding a new medical marijuana initiative. The letter posted today (December 21, 2011):
With the efforts on San Diego city redistricting heating up, here is a Letter to the Editor I penned to the San Diego Union-Tribune that was posted today (July 7, 2011):
