Runoffs: Boren is right for Lubbock County; Democrats tepid on gubernatorial candidates

Pratt on TexasPolitical party runoff elections are Tuesday, May 22nd, that’s next week my friends, and early voting in these important runoffs only runs through this Friday, 18 May.

Democrats have a statewide runoff for their gubernatorial nominee, the hugely boring and rather odd race between Lupe Valdez and Andrew White.

Valdez is expected to win but has committed so many gaffes that many of the liberals in the press who were excited by her candidacy have been left writing stories about how not-ready-for-prime-time she is.

to be an acceptable Texas Democrat today one must celebrate the wanton aborting of babies as wonderful.

On the other hand, many of those same people seem tepid on Andrew White for a variety of reasons. The top reasons being that he is as male, white, and says he personally opposes abortion. It’s not enough that he would support, as governor, a woman’s right to kill the baby in her womb; to be an acceptable Texas Democrat today one must celebrate the wanton aborting of babies as wonderful.

Republicans do not have a statewide runoff but many have local runoffs such as my home county of Lubbock where there is an important runoff for county judge that has the attention of legislative leaders.

The Austin establishment that does not want meaningful local tax reform and restrictions on activist local government is rooting for lawyer and former legislative staffer Curtis Parrish to win.

Those pushing for meaningful property tax reform are rooting for Gary Boren to win in Lubbock

Parrish has unequivocally stated that Lubbock County, as well as county government in general, “does it right.” It is clear that he lines up with those local officials opposed to limits on how much they can raise your property taxes without your approval.

Those pushing for meaningful property tax reform are rooting for Gary Boren to win in Lubbock so they will have at least one county judge willing to speak up for taxpayers to the state’s media come next legislative session.

I’m fully backing Gary Boren for Lubbock County judge.
