Louis Ponder is a resident of Midlothian with family roots going as far back as the 1890s in Ellis County. In his youth Louis fished and hunted his family land, was in the scouting program from Cub Scouts through Boy Scouts and played football in Jr High and High School. From mowing lawns at age 11 ($5 each) to working at Ratcliff's Grocery to farm hand for John Charles Clark through high school. In his senior year Louis learned to weld through the Welding Technologies program at Waxahachie High School. This resulted in jobs at Wakeland trailer and later at Universal Products in Duncanville. March of 1980 marked the beginning of a 20-year career at Gifford Hill Cement (Now Ashgrove) where he went from plant cleanup to heavy equipment operator tp locomotive operator to Quality Control Lab Technician to Control Room Operator and finally he appointed Production Shift Foreman. In 2005, Louis and his wife Kathy joined the entrepreneurial world by launching Approved Home Health Care. The driving force behind founding this business was Louis's desire to help our aging population. AHHC provides skilled care: nursing, home health aide, physical, occupational and speech therapy for our elderly homebound residents in their homes. Louis has a long history of supporting local charities to include Meals on Wheels of Ellis and Johnson County and Ellis County SPCA, Knights of Columbus and more. In 2018, Louis took on the mission of stopping forced annexation in Ellis County. Louis, led the efforts of dozens of volunteers and local businesses around the county to collect over 13,000 signatures in six months. The initiative, known as PROP-A made the May 2019 ballot. Louis and his band of devoted volunteers finally saw their efforts succeed with an 87% win at the polls. This win in Ellis and seven other counties gained the attention of Texas legislators. Louis went to Austin to speak to the committee hearing arguments for Bill HB347. Once signed by Governor Abbott, this law eliminated forced annexation state wide. Louis and his wife, Kathy raised 2 daughters in Ellis county.
Great turnout for our "meet, greet and eat" event and general election kickoff event. Special thanks to TX Rep. Brian Harrison for a rousing call to action speech and introduction of Louis Ponder. We also appreciate Judge Bob Carroll and his presentation focusing on the importance of maintaining a conservative judiciary. Great job by all of the members of the Ellis County Republican Party - Victory Subcommittee, helping make this event a great success. In addition to delicious brick oven pizza from Twisted Sisters Taphouse, everyone enjoyed a couple of hours of comradery and fellowship with fellow conservatives and supporters of law and order in Ellis County. Thank you to all who came out - Welcome to Team Ponder!
