Lone Star Ma Endorsement: Mary Helen Berlanga For County Judge
I will be voting to elect Mary Helen Berlanga for County Judge in Nueces County. When she served on the Texas State Board of Education, she was one of the only members who opposed the draconian racist changes to our social studies textbooks. As County Judge, she would not support shut-down of the hospital in our community that cares for the poor and for those with mental illnesses, though she might not be able to stop it given most of the rest of the Court (God Bless Oscar, again). She would not support tax abates for companies that pollute our children's environment, either. She cares about the people of Nueces County, not just the developers.
