Mark V Goloby 

Republican Precinct Chair Precinct 398 

Repeal Texas Penal Code “Obscenity Exemption” 43.24(c), which allows children access to harmful, explicit, or pornographic materials and 43.25(f)(2 3), which allows sexual performance by a child. 

In addition, prohibit teaching, exposure, and/or discussion of sexual matters (mechanics, feelings, orientation, or “gender identity” issues), and prohibit use or provision of related books and other materials using criminal, civil or other enforcement measures. 

Whereas, Texas minors are being exposed to sexually inappropriate materials, discussions, and teachings through library materials, curriculum, and programs in Texas public schools; 

Whereas, School library materials are managed through local control, with voluntary recommendations and guidelines developed by the Texas State Library Archives Commission in consultation with the State Board of Education. Sexually inappropriate discussions, teachings, and other exposures are facilitated through social emotional learning programs, school counseling programs, and health/ sex education curriculum; 

Whereas, Texas minors are being exposed to sexually inappropriate materials and performances in public libraries, in public spaces, and businesses through so called “family friendly” sexually oriented performances; 

Whereas, The Republican Party of Texas has already determined this as a Legislative Priority to Stop Sexualizing Texas Kids; (see attached) 

Be it hereby Resolved, that the Harris County Republican Party confirm and support this initiative of the Republican Party of Texas to end this sexualization of Texas children.


Executive Committee Resolution on

Election Legislation in the 88th Regular Session

Whereas: The integrity of the elections process is critical to the proper functioning of our Republic, State and County…

Whereas: Scores of election Bills will be introduced in the Texas House and Senate during the 88th Legislative Session…

Whereas: The Legislation introduced has the potential to either improve or weaken the integrity of elections in Harris County and in Texas…

Be It Resolved That: The Harris County Republican Party hereby authorizes members of the Ballot Security Committee to participate in legislative hearings on our behalf, consistent with the following positions:

We Support Legislation that:

Improves the accuracy and auditability of the voter registration process, including ensuring that only citizens can register at their actual residential addresses, and imposing serious penalties for voter registration violations.

Improves the accurate maintenance of county voter rolls, and adds appropriate penalties for non-compliance.

Deters mail ballot harvesting and other forms of mail ballot fraud.

Increases penalties for serious violations of the Texas Election Code; 

Improves the professionalism and accuracy with which elections are conducted by local authorities and improves accountability for all electronic technology used in elections; and

Improves the security transparency, and auditability  of any voting system/method authorized for use in Texas, with end-of-life provisions for any system/method that is neither secure nor transparent.

We Oppose Legislation that: 

Makes it easier for non-citizens or non-qualified residents to register to vote or to remain on the voter rolls, such as legislation allowing online voter registration;

Risks foreign or other interference in Texas elections by endangering the security of voter registration or election data, such as easing online editing access to such databases; 

Makes it easier for county election authorities to expand mail ballot voting beyond statutory allowances or to extend in-person voting methods to unreliable formats like drive-through voting.;

Prevents voters from access to any component of any election system, including source code classified as “proprietary” by election equipment vendors. 

Reduces the legal penalties for violating the Texas Election Code. 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED THAT, a copy of this resolution be delivered by electronic mail to each Republican member of the Texas House of Representatives and of the Texas Senate who represents Harris County or any portion thereof.

Respectfully submitted,

Gail Stolzenburg, SD 17 Chairman, Precinct 509 Chairman
