Election 2012 Video: Hays County Pct. 1 Constable (David Peterson vs. Stephen Velasquez)


In a rematch of their Democratic Party primary race four years ago, Hays County Pct. 1 Constable David Peterson is running against former chief deputy constable Stephen Velasquez, who tried unsuccessfully to succeed his old boss, Lupe Cruz, in 2008.

This time around, Velasquez is running as the Republican Party nominee against Peterson, a Democrat. There are similarities, nonetheless. Velasquez still touts his experience as the long-serving Cruz’s righthand man and he still finds himself on the defensive over personal matters.

CORRECTION: The wrong video footage was originally included in this post. See Hays County Pct. 2 Constable James Kohler debate Republican opponent Ron Hall here.
