Court candidates visit MCDW meeting

If you missed our most recent meeting of the Milam County Democratic Women, you missed an interesting and informative event. We had two lively and articulate judicial candidates on hand to explain the importance of judicial races, and why they are running.

3rd Court of Appeals candidate Karen Watkins (right) attended our meeting Saturday and delivered the message that “when Democrats vote, Democrats win.” She talked about how that court is critical to state government corruption issues because it is the court that hears appeals out of Travis County, which is responsible for watch-dogging state government.

Keith Hampton, candidate for the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals, also spoke to the Democratic women on Saturday. His message was simple. The woman he is running against, Sharon Keller, is the judge who famously closed her office door to a death row appeal at 5 p.m. and earned a $100,000 fine for violating judicial ethics.

Upcoming training opportunity: A lot of people have asked for training opportunities. Here’s your chance! The Milam County Democratic Party will host Senate District 5 for a GOTV session Saturday, July 28 at the Union Hall in Rockdale. The cost is $10 per person and includes lunch and snacks but please RSVP to my email (below, or call 512.760.5748) so we can get a head count.

Plus, stay tuned for more events in August!
And, finally, here’s a cute photo chock full of awwwwwwwwww!
