DA Primaries


Tomorrow—Tuesday—Harris County voters will choose Democratic and Republican candidates for District Attorney. The Democratic candidates are Zach Fertitta and Lloyd Oliver; the Republican contenders are Mike Anderson and incumbent Pat Lykos.

I sat down to lunch with Fertitta and Anderson for short interviews. I didn’t get to interview Lykos because she didn’t respond to requests, and I didn’t interview Oliver because I think his Reasonable Doubt interview said enough. 

Both Anderson and Fertitta said some interesting things. As a criminal-defense lawyer and resident of Harris County, I have mixed feelings about the Lykos DA’s Office. There is no foreseeable outcome to this election that will hurt my feelings. I haven’t felt inspired to turn my interviews into posts.

Depending on who wins the primaries tomorrow, I probably will.

  1. How is your own political effort doing? Inquiring minds would like to know. I am rooting for you, safely all the way up here in Virginia.

    I made a blow up of your likeness into a 6ft by 6ft poster and put bicycle reflectors where your eyes are, so that approaching vehicles on route 138 can light you up with their headlights. Just thought you’d want to know. I’m keeping it green. 🙂 Ric
