The First Amendment Center educates the public, policy makers, lawyers, journalists, students, and teachers about free expression issues. The Center is nonpartisan and does not lobby or litigate, but it is one of the most authoritative sources for information news, and analysis of issues relating to free expression, press freedom and religious liberty.  www.freedomforuminstitute.org/first-amendment-center

Kathie Glass, for Texas Governor, On Restoring Sovereignty Back to the People!

Kathie Glass was born in Buford, Georgia. Her father worked for General Motors as an assembly line worker, and her mother was a school secretary.  As the first person in her family to go to college, Kathie worked her way through college and law school.

At the age of 20, Kathie graduated magna cum laude from the University of Georgia with a degree in English.  She received many academic honors, including Phi Beta Kappa.  At 23, Kathie graduated from the University of Georgia School of Law.

On 7/7/77, Kathie came to Texas, and she has been a proud Texan ever since. She met Tom Glass, an Aggie and Odessa native, at a Texas Libertarian Party conference in 1981.  They had their first date at a national convention in Denver. Tom and Kathie married and then raised their two children in Houston. Their daughter is a Rice graduate and attorney.  Like his father, their son graduated from Texas A&M with a chemical engineering degree, and works in Houston.  Tom and Kathie have a small ranch in central Texas.

Kathie was the Libertarian nominee for governor in 2010.  She ran an active, statewide campaign, getting over two per cent the vote and gaining the Party ballot access for four years. Once again, she excelled in the debates. As the AP said, “Kathie Glass seemed to steal the show.”

In her 2014 gubernatorial campaign, Kathie traveled 40,000 miles to all 254 counties in Texas in her tour bus. www.kathieglass.org
