Greg Parker is a lifelong conservative and the author of Global Warming…Really, a critical look at the myth and liberal hysteria surrounding climate change.
Greg will talk about why he wrote his recently released Conservative Essays for the Modern Era, a collection of five essays exploring several hot-button issues (identity politics, democratic socialism, gun control, Islam). Conservative Essays reveals the liberal hypocrisy and blatant disregard for basic science and facts. Lt. Colonel Allen B. West (US Army Ret), notable conservative and former US Congressman, penned the book’s forward. “Gregory has not just written a book for his son, he has written one for my daughters, and your children as well,” said West.
Parker holds a Bachelor Degree in Business Administration, a Masters of Public Administration, is working toward a Ph.D. in Public Policy and Administration, and has completed graduate-level courseware from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Finance, Public Economics, Econometrics, and Construction Management.
Parker was a two-term Comal County Commissioner, a Texas Emergency Communication Commissioner, and a city manager. He’s now running for Montgomery County Commissioner on a platform of spending reform, county ethics reform, and opposition to toll roads.
We’re strongly impressed by Greg’s comments in his announcement to run for Montgomery County Commissioner:
“I opposed toll roads. I’ve always opposed toll roads.”
“I’m disheartened to say the very least about County spending. It’s been growing at rates well above inflation and well above people’s ability to pay. Some citizens are taxed right out of their homes. I have a documented and proven record of reducing spending.”
When asked about Montgomery County Judge Craig Doyal, along with political boss Marc Davenport, fighting to have the Open Meetings Act declared unconstitutional in Montgomery County in the criminal case pending against them, Parker replied, “Yes, Montgomery County should be subject to the Texas Open Meetings Act just like the rest of the State of Texas.” Parker also said, “We also need to create a better ethics policy that’s more punitive. Right now, the Commissioners Court and the County Judge don’t seem to care.”
We wish Greg Parker lived in Smith County so he could run for County Commissioner here! Smith County government could use some of Greg’s common sense and straight talking!
