Note: This entry is part of a series of recorded interviews with non-judicial candidates in contested Democratic primaries. I am also doing written Q&As with judicial candidates.
One race that I almost overlooked among the many contested primaries here in Harris County is for County Commissioner in Precinct 3. I had the pleasure of meeting candidate Dexter Handy at the Super Duper Tuesday watch party that Michael Skelly hosted, and after talking to him I knew I needed to pay attention to that race. Handy is a recently retired Air Force officer who's lived all around the world before settling in Houston and one of the nicer people I've encountered on the campaign trail. His opponent is a perennial candidate who had run exclusively as a Republican in various primaries before now. I'm happy to support Dexter Handy in this race, and I hope you will as well if you live in Precinct 3. My interview with Handy, which will be the last one for the primaries (I still have one judicial Q&A to run, which will appear tomorrow), is here. I hope this series has been useful to you and has helped you learn more about our candidates this March. As always, let me know what you think.
