Friends and neighbors, Dr. Mike Montes here, your precinct chair and, with your support, a potential architect of Denton County’s future. While my path to public service began as an armchair quarterback yelling at the talking heads on Fox, it has led me to the realization that my words are empty without taking action.
Denton County is indeed experiencing a remarkable era of growth. New businesses sprout like wildflowers, drawing talent and innovation from across the nation. Unemployment hovers at historic lows, a testament to the hard work and ingenuity of our residents. We are no longer a sleepy suburb, but a thriving hub of economic prosperity.
But, as a Christian, I’m compelled to ask: what is the foundation of this prosperity? Is it simply a matter of market forces and technological advancements, or is something deeper at play?
I believe the true engine of our economic boom lies in the shared values that define Denton County. Our commitment to hard work, integrity, and family resonates with entrepreneurs and fosters a climate of trust and collaboration. Our faith in God’s providence inspires entrepreneurs to take risks and build businesses that contribute to the common good. These values, not mere statistics, are the bedrock of our economic success.
As your Precinct Chair, I will continue to ensure our representatives support policies that nurture these values. I will advocate for fiscal responsibility that ensures sustainable growth, not short-term gain. I will support policies that encourage entrepreneurship and innovation while fostering a fair and just society. And I will tirelessly defend the religious liberties that are the cornerstone of our American freedoms.
But economic prosperity, while vital, is not the sum total of human flourishing. As a theologian, I understand that true satisfaction comes from living a life guided by purpose and meaning. That’s why I will also work to strengthen our community’s social fabric. I will support initiatives that strengthen families, provide educational opportunities for all, and foster a sense of shared responsibility for the well-being of our neighbors.
In short, I envision a Denton County where economic prosperity is not an end in itself, but a means to a greater good. A place where our shared values create a vibrant, just, and meaningful society for every resident.
This is not just a political vision, friends. It’s a reflection of the deepest aspirations we hold for ourselves, our families, and our community. And it’s a vision that only we, united by our shared values, can achieve.
So, I urge you to join me in the upcoming primary. Cast your vote not just for a candidate, but for a future built on the bedrock of our shared values. Together, let’s build a Denton County that is not only economically prosperous but also morally vibrant and spiritually rich.
Mike Montes, your Precinct Chair in 4196, and, with your support, a champion for a brighter future for Denton County.
