When another Democrat challenges a Democratic incumbent they need to answer a simple question. Why? Why are you running? What has the incumbent done, or not done to compel you to put your family on hold while you run for office?
Harris County Constable Chris Diaz is in that position with 3 primary challengers, one being a family member, his wife’s cousin. It makes you wonder what Constable Diaz has done wrong enough for his own family member to run against him. His cousin, Jerry Garcia, must know something about the Constable because he has absolutely no business running for any office.
Jerry doesn’t have a history in law enforcement. At all, as in zero, zip, nada. He has spent a career in safety currently at Bludworth Marine. He also doesn’t have much of a voting record, voting only once in the last ten years. He isn’t politically active, a political unknown. He doesn’t have a treasurer, a website, a Facebook page, or even twitter. He didn’t even post a working number on his application to the Secretary of State.
He is completely unqualified and unprepared to run for Diaz’s job. So maybe during Christmas dinner Diaz might have a chance to look across the table and ask.
