14 Candidates Battle at Christoval Forum

CHRISTOVAL, TX — There were 14 candidates vying for various county positions, including Tom Green County Judge, at the Christoval Community Center on Thursday night.

This positon is more powerful than San Angelo Mayor... it requires someone who is both honest and committed to the community as a whole... this brand of political rhetoric is divisive and exclusionary.
