Newly elected (R) Congressman Dan Crenshaw entered his position in congress just a few days before President Donald Trump decided to shutdown the government.
Crenshaw stated that he was going to refuse his salary until federal workers received their paychecks.
In an additional effort to help those particular citizens and their families during this time, Crenshaw paired up with The Humble Area Assistance Ministries along with Second Baptist Church and decided it would be beneficial to have a food drive.
Staff says they were fortunate enough to collect about $6,000 in gift cards before the event and are still taking donations.
Dan Crenshaw, a former Navy SEAL, is a Republican representative-elect from Texas.
The past couple of weeks have been unusual for me, to say the least. After a year of hard campaigning for Congress in Texas and gradually entering the public sphere, I was hit by a sudden, blinding spotlight. But I have no complaints — it wasn’t as bad as some other challenges I’ve faced, like a sudden, blinding IED explosion. (See what I did there? “Saturday Night Live” has created a comedic monster.)
On the Nov. 3 show, SNL’s Pete Davidson mocked my appearance — “he lost his eye in war . . . or whatever,” Davidson said, referring to the eye patch I wear. His line about my looking like a “hit man in a porno movie” was significantly less infuriating, albeit a little strange. I woke up on the Sunday morning after the show to hundreds of texts about what Davidson had said. A lot of America wasn’t happy. People thought some lines still shouldn’t be crossed. read more – SNL mocked my appearance. Here’s why I didn’t demand an apology.
Texans are hard working, love their neighbors, love their country, and believe in the American ideal; the greatest set of ideas for a free people that the world has ever known.
As a team that was the message we spread for the last year, it became the dream that we shared and what we all voted on. You all became a part of that dream and it caught fire. People were reminded of the great things that make up the American spirit.
Thank you all for being part of that dream, thank you for your dedication and thank you for your trust. See you in Washington!
From the battlefield to the ballot! We “vote ‘veteran’ to get the job done!”
We ran a successful campaign by being authentic and transparent, inspiring our supporters to drive us to the finish line. Veteran candidates are disciplined, fast learners and capable of adapting to new facts on the ground without getting too emotional.
On this Memorial Day, we remember the men and women who paid the ultimate sacrifice, giving us the gift of continued freedom. This now carries forward as a new generation serves and protects our community and country.
