bloggin' all things brownsville

Wednesday, May 21, 2008

There has been much talk lately (and so soon) on who will be running for Cameron County judge. I know it's early for a poll, but it'll be here before you know it. I know Judge Cascos plans to run again, and former Brownsville Mayor Eddie Trevino plans to challenge him. However, I haven't heard definites from the others, only rumors. Apparently, it's not too early for the rrrun rrrun!

Remember, this is just an informal poll ... let us know why you're standing behind a particular candidate.

Vote Vote Vote!



If you want to just view results, be careful not to click on the "VOTE" button. Otherwise, you'll be voting for Carlos Cascos.

Mrs. Zamora,

A special note of caution:

I intended merely to "view results" not necessarily vote because I am too undecided on who to vote for county judge.

When I clicked to "view results" it automatically voted for Mr. Cascos. With such a high number of votes for him (13 when I "viewed/voted"). I wonder if I am not the only one this happened too.

But it may be so that many people would vote for him. I do not know. I would hate to give Mr. Cascos a false sense of security.

So may I ask would you be so kind as to place a spot for "I don't know" or "Uncommitted" or "None of the Above" for us weasle undeciders?

I enjoyed the poll. For me, Joe G. Rivera was a new name, but I am always the last to know.

I stood behind Cascos because Eddie TreviƱo never stood behind me.

I 'spect Joe Rivera and Eddie Trevino to round out the Dem ticket for county judge. Wood will survey the landscape and realize he's fine where he's at. Betancourt will survey his landscape/ceiling and realize he's lucky where he's at.

Rivera has made many friends (and done many favors) throughout his lengthy political career. He'll more than likely have near-full support of the District Court bench and their respective machines. The question will be: is he the most qualified person to be the face, voice and leader of our county?

Trevino may better answer that question. He's smelling more like a rose every day his piss-poor mayoral successor holds office. Can his intelligence and energy, necessary traits for the top spot, carry him through in March 2010?

Either one of the above should handily beat Cascos in November 2010. At it's been said countless times before, November '06 was more anti-vote (Hinojosa) than pro-vote.

"I would hate to give Mr. Cascos a false sense of security."

He's had that since late 2006 anyway, so no worries.

I knew there had to be something wrong with the results. I can't for the life of me understand why anyone would vote for that puny little stuffed shirt. He got in to office on votes against Hinojosa not votes for him. He knows his days are limited

MZ, I'm totally undecided also. But if i had to vote for someone today it was Wood. I tried to vote but the site said i had already voted, which is untrue because i am the only one who uses this computer. Anyway, this is my input....

Joe Rivera = no way. he is fine where he is at. he is unbeatable as clerk. unless he wants to jepordize his position he'll run against cascos.

Eddie Trevino = never. after how he acted in office the last several years, i'll never vote for him again. he forgot where he came from. he is brownsville's bill clinton. cochino!

David Betancourt = the only reason why he is running is because he feels he is the strongest democrat in the county. his fault is his d.w.i. and his friends: valadez and atkinson. not my top choice.

John Wood = the statesman out of the group, he has a good chance to beat cascos for two reasons: he is an honest man and is a active democrat. sure, this punch card case came up but we know south texas politics. i pick him over Eddie any day. Rivera too. He'll run circles around Betancourt any day.

Carlos Cascos = so far, the county has been running smoothly. cascos' problem is that he is a republican with ties to Cornyn and Perry yet his county is the most poor in the state. if he wanted to, he can pick up the phone and ask Perry and Cornyn to bring the bacon home. a snake could have beat Hinojosa. the clear message last election cycle: we want hinojosa out. the people are letting him take the throne for one term and then he is out.

Pretty intresting comments.I have been following the maze of bloggs for a wile and I have to say that they are informative and also biased. I'm not saying that this site is but Chris Davis's site most certainly is pro Eddie Trevino and Company, while The grand daddy of them all "El Rocinante" is pro David Betancourt and company. Other sites like this one and rgvusa, seem to be unbiased. There is a particular comment that was posted by one of Chris's buddies the zipper, "the votes were anti Hinojosa not pro Cascos" isn't Eddie Trevino renting his office from Hinojosa and are close friends? Wouldn't a vote for Trevino be a vote for Hinojosa and dejavue, Cascos wins again? Melissa, didn't you work for Cascos, who do you recommend and why did you decide to leave? Althoug blogg polls are fun we shouldn't use them as gauges for voter outcome. I am pretty sure that each respective person on the poll has friends and family voting multiple times.

Latest Anon,

Thank you for your kind words. Other than my obvious bias against the Old Guard and Adela Garza, I like to think of myself as fair minded.

I have been told by friends I am unfair and cruel to Adela. My response: I am just tellin' it like it is. I call it like I see it.

Again, many thanks!

It's just a very unofficial poll on a blog. So, how long are you going to keep this up? ;-)

No offence intended, but how about a poll of your readers to have the music on our blog play only after they press the play button?
Sometimes it loader than other times and ofetn interferes with other people or TV that I might be listening to at the time.
I know I can stop it myself with the pause button, but it starts again automaticaly when I view different comment pages and return to the home page.
That's justmy opinion, I could be wrong.
