How Well Do You Know the Candidates for County Judge, Commissioner & Justice of the Peace?


SAN ANGELO – There are three local runoff elections on May 24 for Tom Green County offices and voters have the opportunity to ask the candidates important questions before early voting begins.  

Many times candidates will be asked the same generic questions about qualifications, education, experience, etc.  Candidates for statewide office have the opportunity to answer some more unique questions like, 'What was the last song that got stuck in your head?' and 'Tell us your favorite joke.'

Voters in Tom Green County are passionate about politics and genuinely care about who represents them in County government.  

Here is your chance to ask each candidate the question which is most important to you.  

San Angelo Live! is accepting questions from readers to be included in a questionnaire to be sent to the six candidates who survived the primary election and are headed to the runoff.  

The candidates and offices are: 

GOP Candidates for Tom Green County Judge: 

  • Todd Kolls
  • Lane Carter

GOP Candidates for Tom Green County Commissioner Pct. 4:

  • Bill Ford (Incumbent)
  • Shawn Nanny

GOP Candidates for Tom Green County Justice of the Peace Pct. 3

  • Stacye Speck
  • Ron Perry

Here is how the questionnaire will work.  Readers may submit questions via email to: [email protected], through the comments section following this article, or in the comments section on Facebook.  

All questions will be considered but we will limit our list of questions to the candidates to 12.  

Candidates can choose to answer all, some or none of the questions.  

The deadline to submit a question is Friday, April 1, 2022 at 5 p.m.  

The questionnaire will be delivered via email to all the candidates on Friday, April 8, 2022 by 5 p.m.

Questionnaires are due back to San Angelo LIVE! from candidates on Friday, April 22, 2022 by 5 p.m.

Questionnaires will be published on San Angelo LIVE! Friday morning, April 29, 2022.  

Please keep your questions short and to the point.  Personal questions and questions containing any disparaging remarks about any candidate will be rejected.  Your questions should deal with subjects that fall within the purview and scope of the office the candidates are seeking.  

The purpose of this exercise is to get a better understanding of how each candidate will approach problem solving as an elected official.  This questionnaire project is designed to provide voters with as much information as possible along with the opportunity to engage the candidates in a substantive conversation in writing before the election.  

Turnout in runoff elections is traditionally very low.  We encourage everyone to get to know the candidates and the offices they are seeking and most of all to participate in the election process by voting on May 24, 2022.
