Good afternoon everyone in the HAIF Family. I'm assuming some of y'all have heard about this: https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2019/03/27/this-is-not-mexico-texas-official-criticizes-judge-speaking-spanish https://www.newsweek.com/speak-english-not-mexico-county-commissioner-tells-county-judge-texas-1376411 Want to know everyone's thoughts on this controversy.
Unless people have been living under rocks or worse, Harris County Judge Ed Emmett [R] announced back on November 17th, 2016, that he will be seeking reelection to a 3rd consecutive full 4-year term in the 2018 elections after months & months of speculation on his future. Emmett, 67, was appointed as Harris County Judge in 2007 following the resignation of then-County Judge Robert Eckels [R]. He won a special election in 2008 & won reelection to full 4-year terms in 2010 & 2014. He previously represented East Harris County in the TX House of Representatives representing District 79 (1979-1983) & District 127 (1983-1987). He was the unsuccessful GOP nominee for TX Railroad Commissioner, Place 3 in 1988. http://www.chron.com/news/politics/houston/article/Harris-County-Judge-Ed-Emmett-will-won-t-seek-10619387.php How do y'all like Emmett's plans on seeking reelection in 2018 ? A.) Love it. B.) Hate it. C.) Wait & See. I don't see former Houston, TX Mayor Annise Parker (D) running against Emmett in 2018 because he'd easily destroy her by 20+ percentage points.
Speculation swirling fast around the Harris County Judge's campaign in 2018. Who's going to run for the highest office in Harris County in 2018 ? Will it be former Harris County Sheriff Adrian Garcia (D), former Houston Mayor Annise Parker (D), Harris County Commissioner Precinct 2 Jake Morman [R], former Houston City Councilman At-Large 4 C.O. Bradford (D) ? Or will current Harris County Judge Ed Emmett [R] surprise everyone & seek reelection to 3rd full 4-year term ? Give your potential candidates
