In the upcoming Hays County Republican Primary Election, the voters of our county need to vote in a strong representative for the position of county judge. I believe that the candidate for that position is Dr. Bert Cobb.
Last week, at the League of Women Voters forum in San Marcos, I asked Dr. Bert Cobb’s opponent, Peggy Jones, a question in reference to how she will gain the confidence of voter’s given her history of late property tax payments. A simple records search in Hays and Travis County of Peggy Jones (formerly Margaret C. Griffin, Peggy Griffin) should give voters cause for concern; searching property and companies that she has owned has been quite revealing showing IRS judgments and other judgments with fines.
Everyone has felt the sting of this economy and had to make tough choices. But the county judge position needs to go to someone who is experienced at balancing budgets and paying all the bills. This position would be best filled by Dr. Bert Cobb.
