Why are you running?

It just bothers the hell out of me.

The filing deadline for the Democratic Primary ended last night and we have a couple of Democratic elected officials with primary challengers. It begs the question, why? What has the current elected official done, or not done, that demands a candidate to challenge for the position? It’s a question that must be asked.

There are a couple of races that demand a challenge, based upon performance in office, but so far they are few and far between. I can name at least one Judge (Elaine Palmer) that should be challenged based upon their record and evaluation provided by the Houston Bar Association but most are doing a fine job.

There are some candidates that do not deserve a challenge such as Judge Steven Kirkland and Judge Leslie Briones. Judge Briones was appointed to the bench after Judge Bill McLeod resigned after 2 months on the bench to run for the Texas Supreme Court. According to law the act of filing for Supreme Court, after being on the job for 2 months, automatically caused the resignation. Instead of challenging a Judge that needs to be challenged he has decided to run against a Judge that has been doing a great job.

So candidates running against incumbents in the primary should be prepared to answer the question. Why?

    SO YOU want some answers? ASK the right questions for a starter !! SO let's talk Former Judge William Bill McLeod of Harris County Civil Court at Law No. 4 was on his bench for 4 months and accomplished 18 jury trials, unmatched in any court ! William Bill McLeod 's replacement in 7 months (May through November) has completed 3 jury trials. Bill worked an average of 100 non-jury trials a week during his 4 months on the bench !BILL'S replacement works less then 20 non-jury cases a week. Bill's commitment to ALL communities is unmatched ! Like Sabrina Lee stated; Bill not even on the ballet for the municipal elections took his @Precinct Ground Game into action and organized with a room full of Volunteers built 5,000 door hanging bags with our Democratic runoff Candidates information for the VOTERS and a card with all the voting dates to make sure the voters would know to get to the polls and vote for OUR democratic Candidates. Bill took his time becaues he is for ALL Democrats and wants to see Harris County work better for all !! The current person on Harris County Civil Court at Law No. 4 Numbers are as bad or worse than the Republican Bill beat in 2018. Bill won his election being in the top 10% of all Democratic County wide. Bill brought voters to the polls, that I bet would not have gone but for his work ! Let's talk about Precinct Ground game 2018 – Bill organized with hundreds of Volunteers across Harris County 52,400 door hanging bags that were passed out to OUR Democratic Voters !! I BET IN THE 2020 GENERAL ELECTION THE OTHER DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATES WHO MAKE IT THROUGH, HOPE William “Bill” McLeod DOES ALSO TO LEAD THE GROUND GAME AGAIN as he did in 2018 !! BILL'S WORK ETHIC IS UNMATCHED .
