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.
I know you've been reading a lot about the Republican primary for County Judge, but the Democrats have a contested primary for that office as well. It's very different, in that there's one candidate who was last seen running as a Republican against Sheila Jackson Lee, and then there's David Mincberg, who brings a ton of experience and qualifications to the job, as well as a long Democratic history. There hasn't been a countywide campaign around here in my memory as remotely high profile as the one for Harris County Judge is going to be, and David Mincberg is the right person to take on that challenge. Please remember that in order to ensure he gets to do that, you have to vote for him in March first.
The interview is here. I plan to revisit candidates like Mincberg again as the November election season heats up, but for now I hope this helps you make your decision for March. As always, feedback is welcome.
