Interview with Adrian Garcia

When we talk about the Harris County races on a macro level, one of the main factors in that conversation is corruption. Given that Chuck Rosenthal has resigned in shame, and that Jerry Eversole is not up for election this cycle, the focal point of the corruption issue is Sheriff Tommy Thomas, whose rap sheet is longer than that of some of the inmates in the county pen. Thankfully, the Democrats have a strong candidate to run against him in current City Council Member and Mayor Pro Tem Adrian Garcia. Garcia has a good record in Council, a law enforcement background as a retired HPD officer, and the unprecedented backing of all three deputies' organizations. This is a change year, and the people who work in the Sheriff's office not only clearly recognize it, they're counting on it. I believe they'll get the change they're seeking, which will be good for the whole county. Have a listen to my interview with Garcia, as always in MP3 format, and see what we'll hopefully be getting next year.
