Precinct 1 Forum to be hosted by GOP

The Republican Party of Kerr County will hold another candidate forum for Precinct 1 candidates on Thursday, February 11, at 6 PM at the Union Church in Kerrville.

The event is free and open to the public. See this page to learn more about candidates seeking office in Precinct 1.

Watch the previous candidate forum featuring candidates for Commissioner Precinct 1.

County Commissioner Precinct 1 Candidate Forum

Yesterday’s candidate forum is available for viewing! Five candidates discussed various issues including taxes, budgets, the library, and much more. This commissioner position has been occupied by Buster Baldwin for 26 years, but as he retires, these five candidates compete for his position.

The forum was filmed by Aaron Yates of KerrvillePhoto.com free of charge as a public service to the community.

Constable Precinct 3 Candidate Forum

I approached the Hill Country League of Women Voters and offered to film their candidate forums for them, free of charge, in order to provide more accessible information about the local elections this cycle. The League graciously accepted my offer, and I’m proud to be able to deliver this candidate forum for public consumption.

Next week we’ll be bringing you the Precinct 1 forums for County Commissioner and Constable.
