Nick Lampson and Pete Olson Battle for Texas House Seat

Nick Lampson, Texas democrat for Congress is running hard for his seat in congress and is making promises about promoting human spaceflight in the meantime. The seat is Texas’ 22nd District, vacated by space supporter Tom DeLay, and includes the Johnson Space Center.

The Orlando Sentinel reports "he has become NASA's biggest booster among House Democrats and might be able to use his campaign as leverage to persuade party leaders to support manned spaceflight... Eventually, Lampson wants to boost NASA funding to $30 billion."

Action for Space posted earlier that Lampson led a congressional delegation to a shuttle launch on March 11th.

Lampson is running against Pete Olson, a former political aid and navy pilot. Olson pledges to support the JSC and criticizes Olson for voting for HR 20, which decreased NASA funding.

Contact Lampson and Olson and tell them that they need to demonstrate a sincere earnestness to promote the space program.

I have heard that Nick Lampson strongly supported the mortgage rules that almost destroyed our economy (i.e., making credit/mortgages too easy to get for people that could not afford their homes). I have sent SEVERAL e-mails and made telephone calls to Mr. Lampson to get his comments on this issue, as well as answers as to whether or not Mr. Lampson supported additional regulation of the credit industry when it was found out that Fannie Mae was cooking its boods. Nick Lampson has refused to even acknowledge my questions. When you vote, think about what Nick Lampson is truly doing for you in Washington. As a result of the recent credit crisis, the very people that were supposed to be helped by the liberal home loan rules, i.e., poor and lower middle class folks, will be the hardest hit by the credit crisis because credit requirements now will be much more stringent than ever before. As for me, I have been truly disgusted with Mr. Lampson's audacity in totally ignoring my questions. I will be voting for Pete Olson.
VOTE FOR PETE OLSON!!!!!!!!!!
