Are You Watching the Wilco District Attorney Race?

The Georgetown/Round Rock 9-12 group hosted a Candidate Forum for the Republican candidates for District Attorney, Saturday, February 11th!  Jana Duty our current County Attorney and John Bradley the incumbent, spent an hour-and-a-half addressing the controversial topics that have surrounded this race.  We didn’t shy away from questions that we knew would bring up intense feelings such as the impact of the Michael Morton case on the county and various state investigations into the choices of several of our elected officials.

We believe that this is the most important race in the county so we are hosting a second Candidate Forum for Jana Duty and John Bradley in Cedar Park on Thursday, February 16th.

Our Candidate Forums have been some of our most important events.  They give our members an opportunity to see the candidates side-by-side and face-to-face.  We hope you will join us for the event this Thursday at Fire Station Number Two in Cedar Park, 1570 Cypress Creek Blvd.  The Firehouse is across the street from the Cypress Creek ACC Campus and next to Smoky Mo’s.  The event will begin at 6:30pm.  Please feel free to invite your friends and neighbors!  Click here for more information and a map to our meeting location.

    At the County Attorney Candidate Forum tonight (4/12) in Cedar Park, all three candidates affirmed that the major task for Jana Duty’s successor will be re-establishing trust by County Offcials and Departments in the ability of the CA’s Office to address County civil cases, personnel issues, and contracts due to Ms. Duty’s legacy of State Bar reprimands for unethical and criminal actions. The fact that all three were unanimous in their agreement of the extent and gravity of the damage of her tenure is quite amazing. The cost of her failed lawsuits ($350,000+) at county expense against elected county officials and the ongoing costs (10’s of $1,000s) of hiring outside law firms to represent various county departments due to lack of confidence among department heads in her ethics and leadership is reprehensible as the county struggles with funding. Those tax dollars could have been used for increased funding to victims services, employee raises or benefits, or desperately needed technology. As she jumps her sinking ship that she torpedoed to hitch a new ride, she leaves us a trail of red ink, inefficiency, acrimony, distrust, and chaos that will be many years and many tax dollars in undoing.
