Ernie Angelo has issued a statement of support for me in campaign to be the next Chairman of the Midland County Republican Party.
Ernie Angelo served as Mayor of Midland in the 1970’s. He also served as Chairman of the Midland County Republican Party (the office I’m seeking) and as a member of the State Republican Executive Committee (SREC). In 1976, he served as co-chairman of Governor Ronald Reagan’s historic Texas campaign. Mr. Angelo served as the Texas campaign manager for “Reagan for President” during the 1980 campaign.
I could go on and on, instead I’ll direct you to Mr. Angelo’s Wikipedia page where you can read more if you’d like.
From Ernie Angelo:
I have known Nelson and Nancy for several years and have seen first hand
their commitment to Midland and the Republican Party and our candidates.
Some have questioned Nelson for his New Mexico roots. I personally view his
N. M. Experience as an asset. I have friends there who are active at a high
level in N. M. Politics. One was the only NM GOP Attorney General. They all
are very positive about Nelson’s political and business activity there which
included an appointment from a Republican Governor. At least two of these
individuals have publicly endorsed Nelson. It should also be of interest
that Nelson’s family has Texas members whose family were in Texas before the
I am supporting Nelson Spear for Midland County Chairman because I believe
his enthusiasm, willingness to contribute time and resources, his experience
and innovative thinking are what we need to maximize the effectiveness of
our County Party. I am very appreciative of the contributions made by our
current Chairman but I strongly believe in the benefits a new perspective
Now is the time. I would ask you to join my campaign for Chairman and encourage others to vote for me in the March 4th Republican Primary. I’m the very last name on the ballot, so be sure to look for me at the very end.
