Harris County Sheriff Race: Louis Guthrie takes lead

That could have been the headline based upon the KHOU/Stein poll for Harris County that was released last week if the subject was the Harris County Sheriff’s race. Instead, you get this blurb: Republican crossover voters are helping push Democratic Sheriff Adrian Garcia to 51 percent in this survey, compared to Republican challenger Louis Guthrie’s […]

Early voting starts today! My ballot choices.

Well, it is finally here. The start of early voting to FINALLY pick candidates to run on the ballot in November. Good grief this has been a long primary season. Around the state, there are 25 runoff elections. My ballot has eight – yours might have more or less. Here are my choices in the […]

Louis Guthrie, Carl Pittman debate again at RHCIA meeting

The Republican Hispanic Citizens in Action (RHCIA) held a debate last night between the two Republican Primary runoff candidates for Harris County Sheriff, Carl Pittman and Louis Guthrie. The debate was well attended, I’d guess between 90 and 100 people crammed into a side room of Fratelli’s Restaurant on Wirt Road. You can click on […]

Harris County Republican Party Sheriff Runoff – the IAD files

Okay, time for the hard stuff. Each of the candidates in the runoff, Louis Guthrie and Carl Pittman, have Internal Affairs Investigations in their permanent personnel files. Mr. Guthrie’s investigations all stem from the line of duty: Mr. Pittman’s is a personal matter that he made public last week at the Greater Houston Pachyderm forum […]

Harris County Republican Party Sheriff Runoff: Louis Guthrie v Carl Pittman

It was a busy week for the candidates left in the Harris County Republican Party runoff, Louis Guthrie and Carl Pittman. And me! They participated in three different forums/interviews and I was present at each one. I’m going to have to make this post a two parter – one a report on the forums and […]

Harris County Sheriff: Louis Guthrie is my choice

This is an interesting race. With the exception of one candidate, everyone has been positive and running on their own merit. And even that candidate is positive in public appearances, using surrogates to slime his opponents in the background. But when you finally sort through the records, two guys stand out: Louis Guthrie and Harold […]

Harris County Sheriff candidate Louis Guthrie wins appeal

I told you earlier that it had been a good week for Louis Guthrie. In addition to winning the poll taken after the Harris County DA Debate this past Thursday, Mr. Guthrie finally sees a light at the end of the dark tunnel that current Harris County Sheriff Adrian Garcia put him in for the […]

Harris County DA Debate Straw Poll Results

Just for fun, I slipped an unannounced straw poll ballot into the hands of the attendees at Thursday night’s Harris County Republican Party Primary District Attorney debate. I didn’t announce it because the popular thing to do with straw polls is for a candidate to ask their supporters to come out and stack the poll. […]

Harris County Sheriff candidate Louis Guthrie: a natural born leader

Some men (and women) were born to be leaders – candidate for Harris County Sheriff Louis Guthrie certainly fits that bill. From the very first time I met him, he has exuded the confidence that comes from being a two-time high school class president, captain of the football team, 100 Club Officer of the Year, […]

Harris County Sheriff race: Heuszel takes straw poll

Well, I guess I can’t say that I’m shocked because I told you that Harris County Sheriff candidate Harold Heuszel had substance but when I received the results of the straw poll held after the forum at the Downtown Houston Pachyderm Club today, I was surprised. Here are the results: Harold Heuszel 34.8% Louis Guthrie […]
