Stephen Broden's campaign for Congress (TX-30) was in full swing at the Dallas Uptown Festival on Saturday, Sept. 25. The Dallas Uptown district, which includes the LoMac, State Thomas, West Village and McKinney Avenue neighborhoods, is ready to vote for the real urban leadership of Stephen Broden for Congress in the upcoming November 2 elections, according to the Broden Campaign. Voters support congressional candidate Broden on important issues that matter to them, to the Dallas area's CD-30 district and to the country. Adding to the momentum is today's endorsement of Broden by the Dallas Morning News.
We don't make this recommendation lightly. The public knows little about Broden, 58, but we are heartened by the fact that he has been involved at the street level, reclaiming parts of the district in southern Dallas. He pastors a small mission church near Fair Park, whose goal is to transform the lives of pimps, prostitutes and addicts. Having seen the district's needs from the ground up, he believes much more could be done to create jobs and stability.
Broden for Congress Chief of Staff Jeni McGarry was at Uptown Festival on Saturday and took a moment to provide a campaign update (VIDEO).McGarry points out that the district has a high concentration of eligible voters who are ready to vote for candidate Broden in Congressional District 30. These voters include parents of students and others in the district who are concerned about the ethics issues and scholarship scandal of incumbent Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson. E.B. Johnson has not been seen recently in the CD-30 neighborhood.
According to McGarry, "We've got our strategy planned out, we know exactly who to target and we've got our numbers. This is a winnable race here in Texas district 30."
