From the Right

It has been a great three years. That is when we began the campaign journey for Senate District 19 with the filing by, now, Senator Peter Flores, for the state senate seat. And even though he was unsuccessful in 2016, the campaign maintained its momentum, knowing that there would be another battle ahead. Today, I am optimistic about the outcome […]

We the People

It’s 5 p.m. on Election Day and I’m sitting in my car writing one more time for the Pleasanton Express. Yes, I thought last week was my final piece, but I just couldn’t refuse Noel when she turns on her charm. It has been a long day. My day started before the sunrise and I have been busy with emails, […]

Caron Tuttle’s comments to Pleasanton City Council



This month marks Atascosa Animal Allies’ one year anniversary. I am proud to say that our group, that started out with myself and four other ladies, has grown to approximately 40 members. We saw a need to help the City of Pleasanton’s growing problem with stray animals and we want to personally thank Mayor Travis Hall, City Manager Johnny Huizar, […]

Letter to the Editor

This letter is to address some of the statements Mrs. Knowlton made in her “From the Right” column that ran in the October 24, 2018 issue of the Pleasanton Express. In her column Mrs. Knowlton stated, “We then make an appointment to appeal values and sit before the Appraisal Review Board (ARB) that is made up of individuals appointed by […]

From the Right

The Republican Party of Texas has a platform consisting of 334 planks. These planks were proposed by the grassroots throughout Texas, advanced through the convention process, voted on and adopted at the State Convention held this past June. The Convention delegates also approved five top legislative priorities and I have discussed four of the five these past weeks. The fifth […]

Vote FOR Tier Two



Well, the first week of early voting was a bit tumultuous, but we are happy to report that things are going much better this second and final week of early voting. The message explaining the difference between Tier 1 and Tier 2 is slowly but surely filtering throughout the county thanks to all who have helped us get the word […]

Confusing language on annexation ballot – not so confusing



The confusion with the annexation initiative on our current ballot is the format, not necessarily the language. The title of the section is “Annexation,” followed by some legalease trying to explain the item, followed by a request for a vote—for or against. So, of course, people are confused.

From the Right

Over the course of several months, I have shared the legislative priorities of the Republican Party of Texas. Through the grassroots convention process, 334 planks were included in the RPT platform and of those, 5 were voted on as having priority. The final vote on these was taken at the Republican State Convention, held this past June in San Antonio. […]

We the People

A few months ago, my husband had a riding accident. His horse stumbled and fell, he went down with a horse on top of him, pinning him to the ground.
