...nobody gives a phuck.
Hell, he El Paso Times told you to flip-a-coin.
The only reason the position mattered was because Veronica Escobar said it mattered.
But between making sure no one steals at Ascarate and no one escapes the County Jail, quite frankly there is not that much to do.
Well, take it back.
Apparently Escobar was drowning in work hence the new position - County Administrator - that she had created to alleviate her burden.
On the other hand if the job were really all that stressful, do you think two guys in there 70s would be running for the job?
For these guys it is an easy six-figures and another reason to tell their wives why they will not be at home on-time.
So who is it going to be?
My money is on John Cook.
Only the party faithful, like the really faithful, show-up to vote.
And Cook is the party faithful's candidate.
Meanwhile, the other guy is running around telling people about all the family he still has in Chihuahua. It is like, "Well, you, everyone and their grandma..."
County Judge John Cook.
And he will probably be County Judge until the day he croaks.
