The people of our state and our area are a proud .
I think they have every right to be. V*. i
I don’t believe there is another area in the
United States with a greater potential for expansion,
accomplishment, or progress. I don’t believe there
are any other people who put greater store in unflin- 1
ching integrity or who believe more firmly that a
public trust is a sacred thing.
Yet, during the past two years, we have seen our
state government shaken by one scandal after another.
We have seen the sorry spectacle of legislators elec-
ted to protect the public interest admitting financial
connections with companies and individuals involved In
Some of these legislators even have stated pub-
licly that---while measures designed to regulate the
Questionable companies were pending before the
Legislature---they accepted large cash fees as part
of a private employment arrangement in which they
were called on to do little or nothing.
L„. Texas deserves better than this.
m ■ r -
The Corpus Christi Caller pin-pointed that fact
in an editorial published January 5, 1956, in which ,
it stated: "It may never get into Texas history j
books, but the year 1955 will be remembered as the 1
year that faith in Texas government reached one of
its lowest points in history.”
The Caller editorial also stated: "Texans could
give thanks for many things in 1955, but not for public
officials who placed private gain above the public good.
We can-only hope that voters will remember the lesson
and repudiate all those who betrayed their constituents."
This is truly a decisive year in Texas history. We
must stamp out forever the fee system and the other
questionable practices which have shattered public con-
fidence in our Legislature and which have held our state
government up to national ridicule.
We are confronted with the equally important task
of guarding ourselves against the reckless demagogue
who would use the chaos in Austin as a means of /'grabbing
In asking you to give me your support for state
senator, I give you my solemn promise to work for you
—-the people—’-with full dignity, diligence, and
decency. A public trust, in my opinion, is the highest
honor that can be bestowed upon any man, I shall always
treat it and cherish it as such.
