In my activism locally I have gained a powerful, populist profile and the respect of several influential community leaders who would be willing to work toward my election. I’ve made strong friendships with individuals who would volunteer on my campaign.

I’ve demonstrated leadership in our community and have done real, measurable work to change minds; expand our visibility; and develop our collective reputation as people willing to sacrifice for others.

Moreover, my work to connect Abilene and the Big Country to other like-minded volunteers and groups not only in Texas but across the country has culminated in a shift in the younger, progressive mindset and the older, traditionalists here locally. I have facilitated a hopeful shift in thinking that things here can change for the better. This campaign would be the culmination of that work.

To achieve my goals I am willing to sacrifice my business and my time. I am willing to commit all that I am to the people of Texas in the uphill hope that they are gracious enough to let me represent them.

    “I support Sam Hatton because he has taken action and brought results for the ideas he endorses and stands for, and he has and is helping bring about changes through these actions.”

    “Sam Hatton is a soft, loving teddy bear, unless you're lazy or treat people poorly, and then he'll rip out his own stuffing and make you eat it until you suffocate. I endorse Sam Hatton because he is an advocate for education, cares about creating policies that benefit society as a whole, and is passionate about educating the everyday man about politics. He will use his voice to speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, and will not back down or be swayed to make decisions simply because of personal gain or political threat.”
