Being a Registered Republican since 1981, I have been involved with voting and educating friends for a very long time. More recently
I have been actively involved in the political process, locally, statewide, and nationally for the past several years getting my friends and neighbors out to vote, either by making phone calls, using social media, hosting and attending neighborhood meetings, or working the polls. It has been a pleasure to get to meet Republican candidates, State and National Congressmen and Presidents over the years, and I look forward to continue educating the voters in my precinct.
As Precinct Chair, keeping voters engaged and informed in a positive constructive manner would be a top priority for me. I would also like to increase the voting percentage in my precinct. I think the nasty negative and untrue campaigning turns voters off and keeps them from getting involved or even voting. Educating the public on local, state and national republican campaigns and candidates will also be another one of my priorities. Voter apathy is a huge problem with voters now, and I want to help educate the voters of my precinct that Every Vote Counts and they need to exercise their right to vote in every and all elections.
As a 28 year resident and former middle school educator in Coppell, a tireless volunteer with the Coppell Education Foundation, various PTO's, DEIC, and several City of Coppell Vision committees over the years, I will continue to reach out to the voters in my precinct by emailing, walking the precinct, using the different social media platforms, all in a positive manner, so not to intimidate or turn off voters. Having precinct members as block captains to help get their neighbors out to vote in all elections is part of my vision as Precinct Chair.
As one that likes to get involved and tries to solve problems, I believe getting the message out to the voters in my precinct and city about the Republican message is of extreme importance. It is the duty of the precinct chair to give positive and factual information to the voters so they can make an informed decision about candidates . I also believe supporting and electing Pro Public Education candidates is a great priority. The voters in my precinct and Coppell deserve credible and levelheaded representation, and that is what I will bring to Precinct 2804.

Mike Wilcox founded the Coppell Republican Club (CRC) over 10 years ago with the goal of placing Ronald Reagan conservatives in the White House and down to the local level.
As CRC president, Mike created the Coppell High School Conservative Club, established the first Republican Booth at Coppell events, was a founding Assoc. member of the Coppell Republican Women’s Club, created the first Republican parade float and yes, Mike has been Uncle Sam in many parades.
Over the last 10+ years Mike has been the Mockingbird election judge, a precinct chair, a voter registrar, been to the State Convention twice, created nwdfcd.org and canvased for countless Republicans. Mike is endorsed by Sen. Don Huffines & Rep. Matt Rinaldi
Electing Conservative Republicans
And continuing to drive a focus on:
• Lower taxes
• Limited Government
• Transparent Government
I don't believe social media is the answer. I believe meeting neighbors in person is far more important.
For example, for over 10 years we have 'walked Coppell' and met neighbors all across Coppell. We also have setup a tent in a public park to register voters and have met countless neighbors. Yes, that was me. :) And make politics fun, e.g.: wear an Uncle Sam outfit in a parade. Frankly, voters need to be heard and they will turn out and vote. Unfortunately, most of our government entities, i.e. those who tax us, are not listening and are not transparent in their activities, which frustrates and turns off the voter.
Mike Wilcox drove Texas Legislation to require financial transparency of Texas Special Districts. Please take a look at nwdfcd.org The finances of this Texas Special District (Taxing Entity) and all Texas taxation entities should be transparent.
For the last 20 years I have been a STEM advocate to schools across Oklahoma and Texas via programs such as National Engineering Week ( discovere.org/ ) while also being an ABET.org Program Evaluator for Engineering programs across the USA. My father went from an engineering professor to provost and taught me the value of education. This experience combined with nearly 30 years in the private sector, I am active in focusing on filling the gaps between our education system and jobs
