LMT columnist Odie Arambula reminds us today that a judge will rule next week on whether the commissioners court will be able to place limitations on county directors/employees if they decide to run for office. I can see where Commissioner John Galo was going with his motion, but I think he went about it the wrong way. If I remember correctly, Patricia Barrera had people making charges against her, that her employees had to help out with her re-election campaign. A better approach, I think, would be to prohibit any subordinate, from any county office, to take part in a re-election campaign. If Patricia, or Martin, or anybody at county wants to run for (re)election, they have to fend for themselves.
