Brown 'Bows Out' of Run for Mayor of Missouri City

March 1, 2012

Due to complications surrounding redistricting and the lateness of this year's primary season, I've decided that now is not the time to run for Mayor of Missouri City. I can't, with good conscious, place the Democratic Party in the position of handling this primary and delegate selection process without its Chairman.  We've built a great deal of momentum in Fort Bend over the last two years, and I would hate for it not to continue in this all-important election.  It would  be my privilege to remain as your Chairman for two more years.

Open Letter from Leaders of Faith Regarding Statements by Franklin Graham

As Christian denominational leaders, pastors, and, most importantly, followers of Jesus Christ; we are greatly troubled by recent attempts by some religious leaders to use faith as a political weapon.  We were disturbed and disappointed by statements made by Rev. Franklin Graham during an interview on MSNBC that questioned whether President Obama is a Christian. Rev. Graham also seemed to imply that the President may be a Muslim, despite the fact that the President has repeatedly expressed his faith and belief in Jesus Christ. By his statements, Rev. Graham seems to be aligning himself with those who use faith as a weapon of political division. These kinds of comments could have enormous negative effects for America and are especially harmful to the Christian witness.

Doug Blatt Endorses KP George for Congressional District 22

February 29, 2012

Dear Friends,

As many of you know, I have been sick off and on over the last few months. While I am feeling better now, I have been unable to campaign as much as I would like. Even though there are at least 3 months to go until the Democratic primary election, I have decided to withdraw from the Congressional District 22 race.

As I withdraw, I am asking each of you to support KP George for the Democratic nomination. He will need all the help he can get to beat Kesha Rogers. I hereby endorse KP George. Please join me by going out to www.KPGeorge.com and sign-up for his email list, volunteer to help his campaign, and donate. I have already signed up for his email list and had lunch with him today to offer my support. I will be following up with a donation.

Thanks for you support. Please forward this email to everyone you know in district 22.

Sincerely,
Doug Blatt

It was with mixed emotions that I announced at yesterday’s Democratic Party meeting my intention to suspend my role as Chairman of the Fort Bend County Democratic Party to focus on my campaign for mayor of Missouri City this Spring.
