Brannon: "Voters want a Commissioner willing to stand and face them, rather than ducking and running . . . "
Just 30 days away from the May 29 Republican primary election, some political odds-makers are placing the race between incumbent Pct. 3 Commissioner Will Conley and challenger Sam Brannon at about even. Brannon continues to plug away at the high debt and spending incurred by the county during Conley's two terms in office and Conley continues to avoid debating Brannon one-on-one. After fumbling his first debate with Brannon in March, Conley decided to take a rain check at two more recent candidate forums – April 22 hosted by the San Marcos Area Republicans and April 26 hosted by the Wimberley League of Women Voters. It's no surprise, really. Campaign playbooks clearly warn that if your candidate can not honestly account for his record, you avoid debates and facetime with roomfuls of likely voters as much as possible.
Brannon released this statement after Conley's no-show at the April 26 League forum: "He doesn't want to have to defend his record in front of his constituents. That's understandable given his record, but avoidance and attack campaigns won't help him get re-elected. Voters want a Commissioner willing to stand and face them, rather than ducking and running. The nasty attacks from his camp are actually bringing people our way. We're picking up voters every day, and are building the momentum for a win on May 29th."
