The hard-charging Dr. Laura Pressley is running for the position of committeewoman on the State Republican Executive Committee (SREC) for Senatorial District 14 in Travis County. The caucuses of delegates to elect their SREC representatives will be held at the Texas GOP State Convention in San Antonio this Thursday through Saturday.
Pressley stormed into prominence within the liberty movement after a failed bid for the Austin City Council in 2015. She launched an investigation into the results of both the general election and runoff and detected statistical anomalies that pointed to an extremely suspicious outcome. Pressley strongly feels that the voting machines were tampered with and believes she’s uncovered strong evidence supporting her claims.
Pressley is the first plaintiff in an election fraud case to progress through the Texas court system to the highest level. The backlash she’s received for her efforts from election insiders has been notably excessive, especially from Harris and Travis counties. Yet, she’s continued to spread the knowledge of her findings to organizations and public officials in every corner of the state and has become a celebrated figure within the Texas liberty movement’s grassroots.
At the 2016 Texas GOP State Convention in Dallas, Pressley led the effort to include the current language on election security and integrity of the state party platform. Now, she is running for a SREC position to bring the battle for trustworthy elections to the board of directors of the party.
In an interview with RagingElephantsRadio.com, Dr. Pressley shared the compelling force for her desire to serve on the SREC. “It all boils down to election integrity. I’m not apologetic about this. But, if we don’t have the ballot box, if the ballot box is not honest and truthful and fair, we don’t have anything else in this state or in this country.”
What Pressley wants to bring to the SREC is not surprising. “The election integrity, honest and fair elections, are the number one issues that I’m going to bring to the table. We have so many other SREC members that focus on other issues from across the state. We don’t have anybody on the SREC with my type of passion, my expertise, what I know goes on in multiple counties across the state with the electronic voting corruption. That’s the expertise I’m going to bring to the table.”
In this RERhotclip, Dr. Pressley freely expresses her thoughts on party direction and her commitment to a full range of challenges.
Pressley applauds Texas GOP Chairman James Dickey for creating an elections integrity committee on the SREC. After attending the committee meetings, she feels it lacks the detailed training to be thoroughly effective.
On other issues facing the state party, Pressley is supportive of creating a credible engagement program to build the party’s voting base through racial diversity with a heavy concentration in the black community.
On the issue of school choice, Dr. Pressley doesn’t like the practice of monetizing the children through the gathering of their personal data, and education standards being directed from the nation’s capital.
A familiar presence in the halls of the Pink Dome, Pressley intends to use her relationships with legislators to more broadly advocate for the platform principles and legislative priorities, taking a page from the record of Chairman James Dickey that she supports for a full term.
