On January 6, there are special elections for Delegate in the 34th and 63rd districts. In the 63rd district, independent candidate William Henry “Mouse” Jones is the only opponent of the Democratic nominee, Joseph Preston. The district is centered on Petersburg.

In the 34th Delegate district, the only nominees are Republican Craig Parisot and Democrat Kathleen Murphy. The district is in parts of Fairfax and Loudon Counties.

Also from BAN:

Texas holds special elections on January 6 to fill four vacant legislative seats. Texas special elections do not have party nominees. All candidates who pay the filing fee appear on the ballot, with the party label of their own choice. If no one gets 50%, there is a run-off.

Five candidates are on the ballot for the 17th House district race: two Democrats, two Republicans, and an independent candidate, Linda Curtis, who founded the group IndyTexans. See this story.

Six candidates are on the ballot for the 123rd House district race, including Libertarian Roger Gary and Green Party member Paul Ingmundson. That race also includes three Democrats and a Republican.

To see a list of all candidates in all four races, see this page from the Texas Secretary of State’s web page.

    Rail grows revenue for schools, police,

    Yeah, like we really need more revenue for the police to abuse people even more. More money for schools doesn’t seem to make their performance any better, either.
