Editorial Board, The Golden Hammer
The Golden Hammer, Montgomery County’s leading daily newspaper, endorses Mark Ramsey for the 38th Congressional District, a new seat created as a result of Texas’ growth in population after the 2020 census. Ramsey is a longtime conservative Republican activist, a hardworking engineer, and one of the most creative individuals involved in Texas politics.
Ramsey has served as leader of the Republican Party of Texas Platform Committee in 2018, 2014, 2012, and 2010, so he’s very familiar with and has shown commitment to the statements of principle contained with the Republican Party Platform, since he was responsible for writing most of them. He has been instrumental in lobbying, as an unpaid citizen, to bring about reform legislation in the Texas Legislature, including his great work on property tax reform, ending taxpayer-funded lobbying, and passing Constitutional Carry, the Texas Heartbeat Act (which has effectively banned abortion in Texas), among many issues.
For decades, Ramsey has consistently fought for term limits, strong enforcement of illegal immigration laws, reducing dramatically government spending at all levels, and in favor of important issues to businesses, such as deregulation of the energy business, and the Trump era regulatory reductions.
If you ever heard Ramsey’s articulation of a method of abolishing property taxes in Texas, you know he brilliant and consummately prepared before he ever opens his mouth to speak.
Ramsey graduated with High Honors when he received his Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Texas Tech University. He’s worked as a Registered Professional Engineer in Texas for over 40 years, working primarily in the oil and gas industry.
In 2020, he served as a member of the Electoral College and voted for President Trump. He represented the north Houston area on the State Republican Executive Committee for eight years until he reached his term limit.
Ramsey is no neophyte to conservative politics. He’s been fighting in the trenches for decades and has a proven record, which he would take with him to the United States Congress.
Voters in the new 38th Congressional District have every good reason to vote for Mark Ramsey in the March 1, 2022, Republican Primary Election.
