McAllen resident and Mission police officer Paul Williams, a U.S. Marine veteran of two combat tours in Iraq, on Tuesday, April 7, announced his candidacy as a Democrat for U.S. Congress, House District TX-15, which is currently held by Congressman Rubén Hinojosa, D-Mercedes. The Democratic Party primary in Texas will be held in March 2016. The 15th Congressional District includes all or portions of Brooks, Duval, Guadalupe, Hidalgo, Jim Hogg, Karnes, Live Oak, and Wilson Counties. Key cities in that congressional district include Edinburg, Falfurrias, George West, Hebbronville, Karnes City, McAllen (part), Mission (part), New Braunfels, Pharr, Schertz, Seguín, Stockdale, Three Rivers, and Weslaco. As a third-generation Marine, Williams described himself “as a hard-working middle class American.” In a text simultaneously sent with his news release, Williams offered the following additional comments: “I am proud to let you know that I have decided to deepen my commitment to public service by running for U.S. Congress, House District 15 in Texas. Because I am not a career politician, I need your help to serve my fellow hard-working middle-class Americans. I’ve done so as a Marine Corps Iraqi war veteran and continued to as a police officer. I want to do more. Please contribute $10 today to my campaign and help bring a true public servant Congress. Thank you and God bless.” According to his official campaign paperwork filed in March with the Federal Elections Commission, Amanda Marie Martínez of Weslaco was listed as his campaign treasurer. In his news release, Jacqueline Armendáriz is listed as Williams’ Interim Campaign Manager. “Paul brings diversity and a strong, fresh voice ready to act as an advocate on behalf of District 15. Public service is what drives Paul, as well as the Marine Corps values of honor, courage and commitment,” said Armendáriz. “He wants to earn your vote to become a U.S. House Representative because he believes representing you in Congress is where he can affect the most change.” Williams is sponsoring a Candidate Meet & Greet, which is free and open to the media and the public, on Saturday, April 25, at noon, at Kray Maga Ghost, 4208 North 10th Street, Suite 1100, in McAllen.

McAllen resident and Mission police officer Paul Williams, a U.S. Marine veteran of two combat tours in Iraq, on Tuesday, April 7, announced his candidacy as a Democrat for U.S. Congress, House District TX-15, which is currently held by Congressman Rubén Hinojosa, D-Mercedes.

The Democratic Party primary in Texas will be held in March 2016.

The 15th Congressional District includes all or portions of Brooks, Duval, Guadalupe, Hidalgo, Jim Hogg, Karnes, Live Oak, and Wilson Counties. Key cities in that congressional district include Edinburg, Falfurrias, George West, Hebbronville, Karnes City, McAllen (part), Mission (part), New Braunfels, Pharr, Schertz, Seguín, Stockdale, Three Rivers, and Weslaco.

As a third-generation Marine, Williams, 26, described himself “as a hard-working middle class American.”

In a text simultaneously sent with his news release, Williams offered the following additional comments:

“I am proud to let you know that I have decided to deepen my commitment to public service by running for U.S. Congress, House District 15 in Texas. Because I am not a career politician, I need your help to serve my fellow hard-working middle-class Americans. I’ve done so as a Marine Corps Iraqi war veteran and continued to as a police officer. I want to do more. Please contribute $10 today to my campaign and help bring a true public servant Congress. Thank you and God bless.”

According to his official campaign paperwork filed in March with the Federal Elections Commission, Amanda Marie Martinez of Weslaco was listed as his campaign treasurer.

In his news release, Jacqueline Armendáriz is listed as Williams’ Interim Campaign Manager.

“Paul brings diversity and a strong, fresh voice ready to act as an advocate on behalf of District 15. Public service is what drives Paul, as well as the Marine Corps values of honor, courage and commitment,” said Armendáriz. “He wants to earn your vote to become a U.S. House Representative because he believes representing you in Congress is where he can affect the most change.”

The Paul Williams for Congress Campaign team also invited the media and general public to attend his first campaign event:

Who: Paul Williams Candidate for U.S. House Dist. 15

What: Candidate Meet & Greet

When: Saturday, April 25 at Noon

Where: Krav Maga Ghost, 4108 N 10th St #1100, McAllen, TX 78504 (drive to the backside of the Taj Gallery business complex; suite located immediately behind Orchidée)

Why: Paul is focused on spending as much time with voters as possible so when they send him to Washington, he represents Dist. 15 residents to the best of his ability. Paul wants to make himself available to voters as early as possible so they can confidently cast a vote for him in the 2016 Democratic primary. He also wants to earn voter support, whether that means volunteering for his campaign or monetary contributions.

Paul is ready to serve you in Congress, but he isn’t a career politician supported by big organizations with deep pockets. Paul is reaching out to voters now to rise above the big money politics certain to drown out what Texans really care about as he runs in the primary this March 2016 followed by Election Day in November. He wants to hear from you.

Paul is ready to be a Voice For All. To donate and learn more, go to http://www.paul4you.org.
