The rumors are strong around the state that Ted B. Lyon will seek the Democratic Party¹s nomination for Governor in 2006.
A very successful 57-year old Dallas trial lawyer, Lyon has a very distinguished career of public service. The former police officer served four years as a member of the Texas House of Representatives and eleven years in the Texas Senate. His legislative career earned him numerous honors for his successful efforts in behalf of consumers, education, the environment, and law enforcement. Ted Lyon is a progressive who will come to the Texas Governor’s office with all of the necessary qualities that are lacking in the last two who held that office.
He has the ‘know how’ to win and to govern effectively. Texas could benefit by a man like Ted Lyon in the Governor’s office.
I'm happy with Bell, but as I've said before, anyone who wants to jump into the Democratic primary and make the case that he or she is the best person to take out Rick Perry is welcome to do so by me. As with John Sharp, I'll believe these reports when I see the words come from the mouth of the purported candidate himself. In the meantime, have fun speculating about it.Posted by Charles Kuffner on October 06, 2005 to Election 2006 | TrackBack
