Interview with Jolanda Jones

Jolanda Jones

We knew a long time ago that this was going to be a busy primary season, with a lot of contested Democratic races. Because the campaign calendar is so short, I have to be very picky about what races I do interviews in, as I just can’t do them all in the allotted time. Harris County Tax Assessor wasn’t on my to-do list originally, as it looked like it was going to be uncontested. Then Jolanda Jones jumped in, and that meant I had to find the time to fit interviews for this office into my schedule, because you can’t not interview Jolanda Jones. She’s a criminal defense attorney, she served two terms on City Council and just finished a term as an HISD Trustee, and she doesn’t need much more of an introduction than that. Here’s what we talked about:


Elisa Cardnell – CD02
Travis Olsen – CD02

Michelle Palmer – SBOE6
Kimberly McLeod – SBOE6
Debra Kerner – SBOE6

Chrysta CastaƱeda – RRC
Kelly Stone – RRC

Vince Ryan – Harris County Attorney
Ben Rose – Harris County Attorney
Christian Menefee – Harris County Attorney

Ann Johnson – HD134
Ruby Powers – HD134
Lanny Bose – HD134

Akilah Bacy – HD138
Josh Wallenstein – HD138
Jenifer Pool – HD138

    Anybody but JoJo. Anybody.

  2. I think she is awesome.

  3. Jennifer says:

    Jolanda is the most disruptive person. She lost her city council position to a Republican because she couldn’t get a long with Annise Parker. She tore Houston ISD apart. NO! Worst candidate ever

  4. Manny says:

    Welcome back Paul.

    Administration of the Harris County VR office is a crushing, nose-to-the-grindstone operation conducted under the watchful eye of the SOS and defined by the Texas Election Code. The annual election calendar and time windows for various processes are set in stone, and the numbers are pretty big, with periodic intense peaks in workload. Not discussed in this interview is the VR’s responsibility to apply the upcoming redistricting plans to the County’s election precinct database in time for the 2022 election cycle. Should Harris County be studying the pros and cons of merging both the VR and the Elections Department of the County Clerk into an appointed Elections Administrator? I’d like to see this question posed to the candidates.

  6. Bill Daniels says:

    Glad to see you back, Paul! And just so you know, we’ve had a come to Jesus moment here and everyone has agreed to be polite and courteous to each other, as sort of a new year’s resolution!

  7. Manny says:

    Bill, I don’t recall a come to Jesus moment, but if you are now a true Christian and by definition a Democrat, I will go with that.

  8. Bill Daniels says:

    LOL, Manny, I’m trying to not scare Paul off, just go with it!
