Endorsements: Civil Court at Law & Countywides

Civil Court at Law 1
I break with the Chronicle to endorse the Democrat, Erica Graham. The paper did call her a “well qualified candidate”, and I general break with the Republican line on Civil affairs.

Civil Court at Law 2
I  break with the Chronicle to endorse the Democrat, Damon Crenshaw, for the same reasons as above.

County Attorney
The Chronicle has not endorsed in this race yet. I choose the incumbent, Democrat Vince Ryan. Vince Ryan, since his service many years ago at City Hall, has consistently been an advocate of the people. The County Attorney of Harris County does a very limited job, as opposed to say Travis County, but I believe that Vince Ryan has served in this limited role quite well.

Sheriff
The Chronicle has not endorsed in this race yet. I choose the incumbent, Democrat Adrian Garcia. Another City Hall veteran, I believe the Sheriff has done a tremendous job since taking office nearly four years ago. No reason to cast out this officeholder.

District Attorney
I make no endorsement. I would have voted for Lykos over Lloyd Wayne Olliver (not even a real Democrat), but Mike Anderson is just too radical for me. The Chronicle endorsed Anderson.

Tax Collector
The Chronicle has made no endorsement yet. I choose the Republican, Councilmember Mike Sullivan. I had the honor to work with Councilmember Sullivan for three years on Bagby Street, and he devotes an integrity and sense of justice to the job that is simply unparalleled. He will routinely give up his weekends to go on patrol with HPD or have dinner with our firefighters. While I don’t agree with his politics, I consider him to be one of the most honorable politicians in this city, and look forward to voting for him.
