There are a lot of local candidates this year, so I'm getting an early start on doing candidate interviews, to make sure that I'll have the time to do them all. My goal is to talk to all the candidates for Harris County non-judicial offices, plus candidates for federal and state offices who'll be on the ballot somewhere in Harris. If possible, I may have a few chats with folks running elsewhere, but that will depend on time and availability. For judicial candidates, I'll be sending a written questionnaire much like the one I did for the primary, since they can really only speak on a limited number of topics as candidates.
This round of interviews starts off with former Houston City Council member Vince Ryan, who is running for County Attorney. You may not know a whole lot about this office and what it does, though it's been in the news more than usual this year. Ryan, who spent several years in the County Attorney's office in the 80s, had some interesting things to say about the state of that office today. Give it a listen here and let me know what you think. Lots more to come soon.Posted by Charles Kuffner on August 11, 2008 to Election 2008
