After taking office, on January 1, 2019, there have been plenty of challenges for Harris County Commissioners Court Judge Lina Hildago. Everyone is remembering the authoritarian feel through the Covid restrictions and mandates. Many still remember her bragging about passing bail reform in 2019. Now many are feeling the results.

The latest scandal is because the Harris County Commissioners Court, over which Hidalgo presides, had awarded an $11 million contract to a Houston-based consulting firm “Elevate Strategies” to conduct outreach services to increase the Covid 19 vaccination rates.

In August, the two Republicans on the five-member court alleged that Hidalgo had improperly funneled the contract to Elevate, which is run by a Democratic political operative, even though another bidder rated higher in a review committee’s assessment. -Texas Monthly

Many want to replace Harris County Commissioners Court Judge Lina Hildago, and some may be unsure about who that should be. Maybe this article will help you decide.

The election and the candidates get lost sometimes. Here they are in no particular order. (May is not everyone)

These Republicans have much to say and you need to do your research.

Randy Kubosh - Fought to get rid of the red-light cameras in Houston and won.

Martina Lemond Dixon - Humble ISD board president.

Alexandra del Moral Mealer - former Army captain

Vidal Martinez - attorney

Robert Dorris - marketing manager

Warren A. Howell - insurance broker

George Harry Zoes - business owner

H.G. Bolanos Bolanos - real estate appraiser

Oscar Gonzales - retired deputy sheriff

Hidalgo is facing no fewer than five challengers within her party to reclaim the nomination. Her most serious Democratic challengers are likely former Houston City Council candidate Georgia D. Provost and Erica Davis, who is chief of staff to Constable Alan Rosen.

The fact that this race has become so competitive, speaks to how both parties think about her record.
