The County Commissioner Precinct 1 Race was the closest local race, and because one person did not claim a majority of the votes (50+%), we are headed to a runoff between Dr. William Rector and Mr. Harley Belew.
Here are the tabulations for Commissioner Pct. 1:
Constable Precinct 1
Tommy Rodriguez defeated Albert Luebano handily with 60% of the vote. The totals were 1,839-1,222.
Constable Precinct 3
Challenger Kenneth Wilke defeated incumbent Angel Garza with a 3:2 margin. Wilke received 1,129 (59.99%) to Garza’s 753 (40.01%).
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.
