Getting to help elect good men and women to office is what keeps me involved in politics and it’s my pleasure to count this week’s guest as a friend and client. Dr. Brian Byrd was elected in May of this year as City Councilman here in Fort Worth, Texas. Brian is a good man and phenomenal candidate and ran as close to a technically perfect campaign as I may have ever seen. In the end, he was the only candidate running in the Fort Worth May election to beat an incumbent.
Our guest this week is Laura Fillault of The Woodlands, TX. Near Houston, she is one of the Township Directors of The Woodlands, A City Councilman by another name.
I met Laura several years ago at one of the RedState.com Gatherings here in Fort Worth and have enjoyed tracking her political involvement ever since. She’s someone who was comfortable as an activist and mom but felt called to step up and run for office herself two years ago.
A lot of people run for public off every year but there are only so many seats at the table. I get to work with some great folks who want to server their communities but Dr. Brian Byrd has impressed me far more than most.
From Coaching with Brian last year to providing significant voter contact resources and software, I got to spend a lot of time with Dr. Byrd and see from up close the passion and dedication he has brought to the table.
Yesterday I shot a short Facebook Live video saying congrats and talking about how Dr. Byrd won the race:
