I wrap up my candidate endorsements.
I endorse the Democrats: Diane Trautman, Siliva Mintz, and Erica Lee. I have thoroughly enjoyed the work that Trustees such as Jim Henley have done to benefit our community. Plus, I think someone mentioned that Roy Morales’s seat (6) was the greatest pickup opportunity for Democrats this election.
County Commissioner 1
I endorse the incumbent, Democrat El Franco Lee. Commissioner Lee has little opposition, and I think he has done a sufficient job in office.
County Commissioner 3
I endorse the Democratic challenger, Glorice McPherson. The astute will remember how I ALMOST ran against Commissioner Radack, so needless to say, I am happy to vote for any sort of competitor. However, I met the Democratic candidate at the State Convention and was pleasantly surprised. I think the Democrats have a strong, commendable candidate. Unfortunately, we have no money to fund these races.
County Commissioner 4
I endorse the incumbent, Republican Jack Cagle. My Kingwood connection tells me that he is truly not as bad as his predecessor.
The JPs seem to all be uncontested races.
I endorse the Democrat, Alan Rosen. I heard quite a few of Rosen’s speeches at the Convention in June and am convinced, quite strongly, that he will be a good constable.
I endorse the Democrat, Chris Diaz.
I endorse the Democrat, Ken Jones.
Constables 4-8 are uncontested. I live in 5, where Camus (R) is running unopposed. I will vote for him, he hasn’t seemed to have done anything especially wrong.
