Debra wants to meet you!

I’m trying to make sure I get out and visit with all of our District 29 residents by attending City Council meetings in each of our towns that are situated in District 29.  I’ve already been to Alvin, Brookside Village, Iowa Colony, and Manvel, and will be at the next Pearland meeting as well.  Not only have I met some great people, but I’ve had the opportunity to talk with residents of those towns about the issues that concern them and that they believe their State Representative can assist them with.   Now, that is what makes public service so important and so gratifying!  And for me, it is this type of grassroots contact that keeps me aware of what you – the taxpayer – are focused on.  If I’ve missed you at one of these meetings, you can always e-mail me at or even call me at (281) 393-2056.  I may not always have the answer, and you may not even like the answer I give you, but I give you my word that I will listen to your concern and do what I can to find a solution to the problem.  So many times it just appears that our elected officials are deaf to our needs, and I promise to always remember that I work for you (as it should be with ALL of your elected officials)!

NRA’s Political Victory Fund Gives A Rating

Yesterday, we received word that the National Rifle Association of America Political Victory Fund announced it gave me an A Rating for the 2012 Primary Election, based on my positive responses to their NRA-PVF candidate questionnaire.

I am a Christian, a conservative, a wife, a mother, former teacher, a small business owner, a gun-owner, and a taxpayer who considers herself blessed to have been born in the USA and raised with the basic values of God, home, and country, and a fierce supporter of our 2nd Amendment rights.

Debra Rosenthal-Ritter Files as a Candidate for Texas House of Representatives District 29

Monday, November 28, was the first day that candidates could file for a place on the Primary ballot for the upcoming March 6 Election Day.  Debra Rosenthal-Ritter, a Conservative Republican candidate from Alvin, filed the appropriate paperwork to run for the Texas House of Representatives District 29 seat which includes Alvin, Manvel, and Pearland.

Debra and her husband, B.J., have been Brazoria County residents for 19 years and have three sons ranging in age from 29 to 10.  Debra currently owns and operates her own small business as a Certified Financial Planner Practitioner (CFP®), assisting individuals and other small business owners in their financial planning concerns.  She and her family are members of the First United Methodist Church, Pearland, and while Debra is an active member of both the Alvin Area Republican Women and the Alvin TEA Party Patriots, she has never run for or held an elected office before.  Debra is proud to admit that she is NOT a career politician, and feels that her educational background and the professional experience she brings to this race are the qualifications that make her the best Conservative choice to represent the citizens of Brazoria County in the Texas House of Representatives where she vows to “Put Taxpayers First”.  Debra can be reached at or by phone at (281) 393-2056, and welcomes the opportunity to speak – and to listen – to Brazoria County citizens and voters.

Happy Thanksgiving!

As we join together with family and friends during this uniquely American holiday of Thanksgiving, please don’t forget those who have come before us, those who are no longer with us, and those who have bravely served our country and kept America the “Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave.”  God has so richly blessed America and it is our duty as Patriots to fight for what is right and to never allow “political correctness” to mask the intentions of those who don’t share in our dream for an America where our children will be able to enjoy the same liberties we grew up with.  We will accept nothing less in our attempt to keep America the land of opportunity for all our citizens.  From our home to yours, “Happy Thanksgiving”, and may God continue to Bless America!
