  1. Oh but Leticia Ablaza, running for District I, will suddenly object to that “R” beside her name. Not because she isn’t Republican, after all, she was the COS for tea-party fav Helena Brown, then became campaign manager for a Republican judge, all the while appearing at Republican events, etc. But since District I went 70% for Obama last election, Ablaza knows an “R” won’t win it. At a public meeting at the Magnolia Service Center, she said claims she is an “R” are false and calls anyone that labels her one a liar. She is too much! The voters are not that dumb.

  3. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next blog post, i’ll try to get the hang of it! Cheers

  5. Dear Texpats:

    You managed to publish my responses to your questionnaire, but you have not yet updated this page. It still lists Ahmad Hassan as the Democrat for Harris County Judge, but not me. Please make the change.

    Thanks awfully,
    David B. Collins
    2014 Green Party candidate,
    Harris County Judge
