Bus stop: Libertarian's Glass for Governor tours North Texas

The Kathie Glass for Governor Bus Tour rolled into North Texas over the weekend and will roll out again in another few days on its history-making tour of Texas.

Glass is making a stop in Allen tonight, June 26 at 7:00 pm where she will be speaking to a gathering of the Allen Area Patriots; will appear at Spring Creek Barbeque for a Meet & Greet in Keller Friday, June 27; and then will motor on down the highway into the southern reaches of the Metroplex for a noontime get-together at the Caddo Street Grill in Cleburne on Monday, June 30.

All of these scheduled Metroplex bus stops are detailed at the Kathie Glass campaign website events page

At this writing other bus stops for fundraisers and media events were still in the works for Tarrant County over the weekend. Those who want to rub elbows with and support the LP governor candidate need only to keep checking her events page or the Tarrant County Libertarians Meetup site for the latest developments.

As the 2014 Libertarian Party of Texas candidate for Governor, Glass set a goal to raise awareness of the libertarian message and specifically the Libertarian Party throughout the state. Her means of reaching that goal is to make at least one appearance in every county in the Lone Star State before the 2014 election.

Texas covers a land mass of 268,820 square miles and is home to 254 counties. Thus the "Texas 254 Tour" in a big brightly colored yellow motor coach with the message in bold black letters "Kathie Glass Libertarian for Texas Governor – RESIST federal tyranny... again!" painted on its side along with a mural of the candidate and the Alamo.

Many of the counties on the tour, especially those in West and Southwest Texas, are sparsely populated with a scattering of small towns. While this makes her appearance especially meaningful for area residents who are typically ignored by the big urban media centers and other candidates, it's sometimes difficult to gauge the impact.

"Because many small-town newspapers do not have webpages or require subscriptions to view," her West Texas Tour Report explained, "we do not always know when reports of Kathie's visit hits the news."

But she has been hitting the news, with radio and TV interviews and reports and local newspaper photos and articles.

Her campaign also points out, "It takes $250 to fill the gas tank on this bus" and then asks "Can you contribute the equivalent of a tank of gas today?"
