Joe doesn't stand a chance. A councilman and a lawyer are running? Both WAY more qualified then some far right "publisher" of nothing more than republican propaganda.

If Joe or the other "businessman" end up winning it is because people voted for name only and not who is more qualified. But that is usually how republicans vote anyway, so who knows, maybe Joe does have a chance. 

Also, it is a little odd to me that you can have NO qualifications to be a judge (like a LAW DEGREE) and still be elected to that position, but it isn't the first time Texas has surprised me with it's backwards ways.


What a cruel thing to say. Kinda reminds me of the mean things people said about Hyde when he started this news company in 2013. I remember the cruelty like it was yesterday. He "doesn't stand a chance," he's too "right wing," and my favorite, "there's no news in San Angelo..."

To the best of my knowledge Mr. Carter is still a councilman representing single member district 5. 2. Councilman is one word. Poor Matt goes to regular council meetings and still can’t figure out who represents the city or even how to spell. Matt, are you vying for a cabinet position within the Biden administration? You would fit right in!

There are two different profiles with the same name now? You republicans really need to get new ideas.
