Phillip Aronoff for Congress in Texas' 29th District
On to the Run-off!
While we still have a run-off to deal with for the GOP nomination, I am fired up and eager to move forward toward victory in November.
I want to thank everyone who supported and voted for me. It is deeply appreciated, and I hope to have your continued support to help win the run-off on May 22, and then turn this seat from blue to red in November.
Who am I?
I am Phillip Aronoff and I am filing to run for the United States Congress in the 29th district of Texas. I have vast experience in business, in politics and as an honorary consul general for more than a decade. I am fluent in Spanish, and have been to Mexico too many times to count, both for business and pleasure. I understand the importance of Houston as a global business center, and know the ways to build on that. I ran George W. Bush’s first campaign for governor in Harris County, and I have close relationships with many local politicians, past and present, from Al Green to Tom DeLay, among others
Why Am I Running in the 29th District?
- First, as a Republican I do not want to give a “free ride” to the Democrats.
- Second, and most importantly, I want to provide the residents of the 29th district superior solutions to the problems facing our country today. The solutions offered by the Democratic Party is to empower government, not the people. I want to empower you.
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. What I have come to realize is that these new citizens have not come over to the Republican column when they vote. I believe the reason is that they do not even hear our message.
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 Conservative movement and 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 whomever is the victor in the Democratic primary. If the residents of the 29th district will give me a chance to explain my views, and they will listen with an open mind, I am confident the voters will vote for me and I can become their next US Congressman.
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.
United States Representative,District 29: Phillip Aronoff
Based on his knowledge and political experience, Phillip Aronoff would be the best choice.
Aronoff, 72, has spent decades involved in local government, including as executive secretary for the Consular Corps of Houston, on Mayor Annise Parker's International Trade and Development Council and as a member of the Harris County Housing Authority. He is fluent in Spanish and has an extensive record within the Republican Party that spans from George W. Bush's gubernatorial campaign through Jack Kemp's run for the presidency. His work in the import business and international relations would make him a prime representative for a district that includes the Port of Houston and circles north from Pasadena through Jacinto City to cover northside neighborhoods.
