While this action was important and necessary, now comes time for the most important action—voting. If you believe our community’s future matters…
Over the past year, my campaign for Hays County Judge has been extremely rewarding. I have shared how Hays County stands out, from much of what we see in politics today, as a model for effective problem solving.
I cannot overstate how important this election is to the future of our community. We live in one of the fastest growing counties in the U.S. and our quality of life for years to come depends on the work we do now on transportation, public safety, conservation, and job creation.
The contrast between my opponent and I could not be clearer. Four different newspapers over the past two weeks have reported how unfit Ruben Becerra is for this important office. With multiple federal tax liens, late and unpaid taxes, lawsuits for unpaid bills, a bankruptcy, and even causing a local charity to take a loss after requesting and receiving a premier banquet sponsorship and then refusing to pay for it. Yet, he and his wife still loaned nearly $25,000 to his county judge campaign. These aren’t accusations, they’re reported facts in the Austin American Statesman, Hays Free Press, San Marcos Corridor News, and Dripping Springs News Dispatch (See below for links), and his own filings with the Hays County Elections Office.
Instead of answering numerous questions from reporters and the public about his troubled background, Mr. Becerra and his wife created a fake group to send anonymous personal attacks on my family and me.
These attacks are illegal and, on Friday, my campaign took action with the Texas Ethics Commission to ensure that justice is served in this matter.
While this action was important and necessary, now comes time for the most important action—voting. If you believe our community’s future matters, if you believe that we need leaders of integrity who work to achieve a responsible vision for our future, I ask for your vote on Tuesday, November 6.
