Tomorrow is the Big Day.
I've got to be in Brazos County at 8:30 in the morning and I've got an appointment with the shoulder doc in the afternoon, so this will probably be my last pre-election post.
To all of the candidates who had the guts to run this year (or any year), you have my utmost respect.
Prior to the 2008 election, I had no concept of what a candidate has to go through when seeking office. The toll it takes on a candidate and his or her family is enormous in a way that I can't put into words. I can't fathom ever doing it myself. I'm stressed out just watching my friends do it!
I was thinking about the election today, and I realized that there probably isn't a single friend that I have that I agree with on 100% of all the candidates.
But what we all do agree on is how important it is to vote.
I would imagine that if you are actually reading this blog, you've probably already voted. If you haven't, then make sure to do it tomorrow. The Election is far from decided and every vote counts.
Make sure your family and friends have voted, too. Pestering them now will make the difference for the next four years.
Go vote for Mike Anderson for District Attorney.
Vote for Ryan Patrick for Judge of the 177th District Court.
Vote for David Mendoza for Judge of the 178th District Court.
Vote for Kristin Guiney for Judge of the 179th District Court.
Vote for Brock Thomas for Judge of the 338th District Court.
Vote for Brad Hart for Judge of the 339th District Court.
Vote for Mark Kent Ellis for Judge of the 351st District Court.
And, yes, vote for Mark Bennett for the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals.
Whoever you vote for -- just make sure you go vote.
We'll talk again when it is all said and done . . .
