Runoff elections are not glamorous. They don’t have the sizzle of the “big fight” and especially when they are part of a primary election, however there are several good reasons to vote in Saturday’s Democratic Runoff.
The first is to put a candidate who actually understands what the position is about. When it comes to Texas Railroad Commissioner that position is about oil and gas, not trains. That is why the choice is clear. Dale Henry come from a petroleum background. Henry was a petroleum engineer and he understands the business as well as the environmental problems it can cause. He has pushed for better pipeline safety and has the public’s interest rather than big oil at heart.
The second reason is Diana Lackey. She is running for County Tax Assessor Collector and has 24 years experience in tax assessment and collections. She has the endorsement of numerous groups including Stonewall Democrats of Dallas and Dallas County Young Democrats. Check her web site for more info.
