CHRIS DAVIS, CAMERON COUNTY ELECTIONS ADMINISTRATOR, ISSUES IMPORTANT ELECTION INFORMATION THROUGH PRESS RELEASE


Election time is here. Early voting starts Monday. I do not ask my readers to vote any particular way. All I can say is look to your personal values. The BV has published the web pages of the candidates to the extent they existed.

I have been listening to the ceremony at the George W. Bush library. To a president they agree, one party ruling everything is never good. People from both parties must work across the isle if things are to get done. For me, regardless of how I feel for anyone, it does not serve Brownsville to have a majority of 4 ruling the COB, or BISD. The old 4 at BISD were bad, and the new 4 at BISD are bad - although Tuesday's meeting was so lovey-dovey it was just down right weird.

One good thing about this election is, the only candidate who has made a cornerstone of his campaign going negative has been Martin Sarkis. If he does not make it to the run-offs it will send a strong message - going negative does not work. Maybe this message will lead to better candidates in the future. In the at large race I will be voting for Roberto Uresti - not because I support him - but simply to send a message Tony Martinez having a secure set of 4 votes is not good for Brownsville or any political entity. I have no say in the other 2 elections.

People need to remember that because of redistricting, their voting place and precinct may have changed.  The best way to avoid any confusion is to simply vote early.  You can vote at any of the early voting places regardless of your precinct.
