Like the Republican side of the ballot for County Court at Law # 1, there are three candidates on the Democratic ballot vying to replace Judge Reagan Helm -- defense attorneys Beverly Melontree, Anthony Limitone, and Louis McWherter.
Unlike the Republican side of it, I don't have a lot of information on these three candidates. Out of the three candidates, I know Beverly the best, and she's a good friend of mine. I've never tried a case against her, but I've seen her handle herself in court and can attest to the fact that she is a very zealous advocate for her clients.
Anthony Limitone is also an attorney that I dealt with sporadically when I was at the District Attorney's Office, but it had been years and years since I dealt with him professionally. My recollections of him are that he was always pleasant and professional in the way that he handled his job.
Although I recognize the name Louis McWherter, I'm having a hard time placing a face with the name, so I don't know anything about him.
I've checked the internet and the Democratic Candidate web page for information and links for more information to the candidates pages, but I couldn't find anything. If anybody else can point me in the right direction on finding the information, I'll be glad to update this post.
Sorry this one doesn't have too much information, guys. If you guys have something to add, let me know.
