Meet Victor Morales and Joe Parnell

Last night on my way to the store, I noticed a white pickup and I had to swing back around and see it again. The pickup belongs to Victor Morales. Mr. Morales is the Democratic candidate for the Texas State House District 4. With Mr. Morales was Joe Parnell who is in the Democratic runoff for Kaufman County Commissioner Precinct 3. They were about to go door to door, but they both were nice enough to pause and let me snap their picture.

Mr. Morales is the first grassroots candidate I can remember. He ran for US Senate in 1996 by driving his white truck around the big state of Texas and he still drives that same truck today. He takes no money from PACs, only individuals. If you have questions for Mr. Morales he can be reached at,

Mr. Parnell is a former Kaufman County Court of Law Judge. You can read all about him and his qualifications at his website

For the runoff election, early voting started yesterday and runs through April 4th, regular voting is on April 8th.

I hope both men do well.
