PBT OFFICER POSITION CANDIDATES
Ramona (Moni) Salina, Edinburg, TX
Intent to Run for Treasurer
My name is Ramona ‘Moni’ Salinas and I am the owner of DWI Bail Bonds in Hidalgo County and currently hold a seat as one of your PBT Board of Directors. I am submitting my intent to run for PBT Treasurer. I have over 10 years of experience in the bail bond industry and have worked diligently alongside many bondsmen to continue the security of commercial bail in Texas. As a team player I have learned and grown in the industry, starting with the unity and blessings of fellow bondsmen in my own county, where, together, we reactivated our local association. While I was President of the Hidalgo County Bail Bond Association, I assisted with treasurer responsibilities including monitoring expenditures and monthly reports and as an independent business owner, I have an in depth understanding of the financial aspects of running a successful business. As PBT Board Director, I have been appointed chair to several committees, while continuing to volunteer and be engaged on all other committees within PBT. Commercial bail is at a daily risk and our work is far from done. I humbly ask once again for your continued support and vote as your next PBT Treasurer.
Candidates for a Director Position in Alphabetical Order
Stan Stanley, Beaumont, TX
Running for Election to the Board of Directors
I believe in ACTION, ORGANIZATION and RESULTS. My family has been in the bonding business for over 38 years in Jefferson Co and you may know me from the Grassroots for Bail Preservation project that Matt Clark and I created in 2017 to help PBT to communicate about and organize a grassroots fight against Bail Reform. We later saw the need for a professional grassroots organizer and public relations firm and organized private donors for that effort. Since that time I have been a part of the PR/Grassroots team that has been instrumental in involving 3rd party public officials and engaging the media and the public on Bail Reform. I have also spent many hours lobbying with the legislative team for our cause in the last 2 sessions and I currently serve as a member of the PBT Legislative Committee. If elected I will work to implement a specific plan that will include: 1) Growing our membership by providing more value to our bondsmen 2) Building a strong and well-organized grassroots effort to train bondsmen to be politically active 3) Work toward changing our public image as professionals. I am ready to get back to work. I would appreciate your vote.
