I think Harris County has had enough Dick to last a lifetime.
Eric Dick, the Harris County Department of Education Trustee, who was fined by the Texas Ethics Commission $30,000 for various violations and was referred to the Texas Bar for possible disciplinary action, lost last night even though he wasn’t running.
His wife, Danielle Dick, was running for his position and lost. Danielle didn’t raise any money and didn’t file any reports because she said she would not raise/spend over $950. Obviously she didnt. She lost to Andrea Duhon and the HCDE will finally be free of Dicks.
In another race that took me by surprise because I didn’t know he was even running, Chris Carmona lost to Andrea Beall for District Judge, 185th Judicial District. Who is Chris Carmona you ask?
Chris Carmona is a lawyer in Houston. He’s not only a friend of Eric Dick, he represented Eric Dick in his formal hearing at the Texas Ethics Commission, the one where Dick was fined $30,000. The hearing was a train wreck for Carmona. Dick was subpoenaed to show at the hearing in person or by Zoom. He did neither. I watched/listened to the entire hearing and in my non-lawyer opinion it was an absolute disaster for Carmona. Carmona has run before, I believe it was for City Council, and he lost then too.
So maybe, just maybe, Harris County is done with Dick.
