Texas State Representative Dwayne Bohac

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

As a lifelong resident of House District 138, born and raised in Northwest Houston, improving our local quality of life has always been my top priority. That’s why I have fought for lower taxes and job creation, worked to improve local flood control efforts, cracked down on nuisance apartments, helped pass stronger border security measures, and worked with parents, teachers and local school board members to improve education.

With your support, I will continue to work hard and deliver results for our local community. Please take a minute to explore my website and don’t hesitate to contact me should you have any questions or need assistance.

Sincerely,

Dwayne Bohac’s signature

A Field General in the War on Christmas

(via The Daily Beast)

Outraged when his first-grader came home from school talking about a ‘holiday tree,’ Texas lawmaker Dwayne Bohac vowed to bring back ‘Christmas freedom.’ And he’s succeeding.

Shove those “holiday trees” aside. Feed your “Season’s Greetings” to the Yule log. Deck your halls instead with boughs of holly, shouting “Merry Christmas” (or “Happy Hanukkah”) well into the night.

The latest front in the War on Christmas, like so many of its battles, began in Texas. In 2012, Dwayne Bohac, a state lawmaker from Houston, picked up his son from first grade and was alarmed to hear the boy say he had spent the day putting holiday decorations on a holiday tree.
