Okay, yeah, I know, I’ve beat you over the head about this over the last week or so. But that is only because I truly think that the outcome of this race will decide the fate of the Harris County Republican Party in November. There is no Judge Ed Emmett on the top of the ticket to pull the down ballot candidates over the finish line. There is no Paul Bettencourt on the ballot to rally voters and get them excited about the ticket.
One of the candidates for District Attorney will have to be that leader. And this year, we have a clear choice between candidates because Pat Lykos and Mike Anderson have very different visions for the office and how justice is served best in the county. I hope that you do not take this race lightly. Talk to your friends, find out what they think. Research the candidates, know what they stand for. Attend tonight’s debate or one of the others scheduled and find out for yourself what they stand for. Then pick one and help your pick win.
Whatever you do, do not go to the polls and blindly follow one of the slate mailers that have been bought and paid for by the candidates. You will do all of us a disservice if that is your idea of voting responsibly.
There is still time to submit a question for the moderators to consider. Heck, even I submitted one because there are a couple of things that I’d like to know before I vote. Click here for more information on the debate and to submit your question.
Okay, that’s all. Last call as it were. Hope to see you there.
