I have been studying the Hays County District Attorney candidates and I waited to make up my mind.
Hays County has got to stop being a “political stepping stone” for those tired of being assistant attorney general lawyers. We did get a good district judge from there, but assistant attorney generals have been running in Hays County with little success for over 30 years. I support Gregg Abbott for governor, but you have to remember that each of these candidates is only one of more than 700 lawyers employed by the Texas Attorney General’s Office.
I would rather have a district attorney who has represented the public in private practice — one of us, who has lived and worked through life’s problems without a “taxpayer safety net.” That is the person I want weighing cases fairly against the accused.
I like the other candidate, too, but my 32 years of statewide law practice tells me to vote for Lynn Peach. She has proven that she will fight for what is right and she will stand strongly for justice.
