Thank you for your support!
We are fired up and eager to move toward victory in November.
We want to thank everyone who supported and voted for Team Phillip. It is deeply appreciated, and we hope to have your continued support to help revolutionize the way our district is represented in November!
Who is Phillip?
Phillip Aronoff is running for the United States Congress in the 29th district of Texas. He has vast experience in business, politics, and as an Honorary Consul General for more than a decade. Phillip is fluent in Spanish, and has been to Mexico too many times to count, both for business and pleasure. He understands the importance of Houston as a global business center, and knows the ways to build on that. He has close relationships with many local politicians, past and present, from Al Green to Tom DeLay, among many others.
Why Am I Running in the 29th District?
At the age of 14 my father sent me alone to Mexico for the summer. He told me to do two things- Learn how to make steel, and learn how to speak Spanish. I did both, and found a great deal of respect for the Hispanic culture after that experience. As a conservative, I saw an opportunity to show the people of the 29th district, that there are individuals like myself. I am a proud grandson of immigrants, and I have a genuine respect and understanding for our nation's immigrants and their descendants. I believe many of us share a love of God, family, and country. Those values drive many of the people in the district. As a retiring diplomat, I am uniquely qualified to be a steady hand for the people. I know when to fight alongside the people I represent, and I know when to listen to their needs. The district will be able to gain a congressman that already has wonderful friendships with people like Al Green, Sheila Jackson Lee, Brian Babin, and many other leaders in congress. I'll go to Capitol Hill with established relationships on both sides of the aisle. This means that I will actually be able to accomplish things for our district, that my opponent wouldn't. We already have a solution for immigration ready to draft up on day 1. It's time to stop grandstanding. We need to start solving issues. There is a dishonest social justice war going on, that doesn't help the people of the district. People in the district are worried about flooding, immigration, human trafficking, and drug addiction. These things are hurting the people the most. I'm running to put those issues at the forefront, and not some cutting edge LGBTQ bathroom bill. I want to provide the people, of the 29th district, with superior solutions to the problems facing our country today. Empowering immigrants, along side those that were born here. That's true equality. I want opportunity available for all, for the betterment of our country.
Grandson of Immigrants
As a grandson of immigrants to this country, I have always welcomed and approved of new immigrants to the United States, especially from Latin America. The reason is that they share our values of family, hard work, patriotism and love of God. As well as - limited government, free enterprise, and personal responsibility. Message is important, and I hope that my message finds as many people as it can. It's important that we stand together on our shared values.
Enhance Opportunity for All
It is my goal and desire to share the ideas and values that can give everyone an equal chance to fulfill their life’s destiny to the best of their ability. I believe in Ronald Reagan’s analysis that “The person who agrees with you 80 percent of the time is a friend and an ally - not a 20 percent traitor.” I want to demonstrate that the values I have embraced will enhance life’s opportunities for all people living in the US.
Honorable and Lively Debate
I look forward to an honorable and lively debate on the issues with State Senator Sylvia Garcia. If the residents of the 29th district will give me a chance to explain my views, and listen with an open mind, I am confident the voters will find the right person to place their trust in.
Challenge and a Better Pathway
My challenge will be exactly how to get the people to listen to and analyze both my opponent’s and my perspectives on how to manage the problems facing both the country and our great city of Houston, as it continues to rebound from the devastating blows delivered by Hurricane Harvey. I am confident I can provide the better pathway to raise our children and pursue life’s treasures.
