Argibusiness Supporter, Baylor Alum Files to Run for North Texas Election

Today, Trenton Garza of Bushland, Texas filed a Declaration of Write-In Candidacy with the County Judge's Office for Potter County. Judge Arthur Ware, as the filing authority, is required by law to determine the eligibility of Mr. Garza’s write-in candidacy and issue his determination within 5 days' time. Should Judge Ware find Mr. Garza eligible, Garza will be challenging incumbent Justice of the Peace Gary Jackson (R, Amarillo), who was previously unopposed, in the General Election scheduled for the 4th of November.

The general election is scheduled for November 4, 2014. Additionally, Mr. Garza filed a Campaign Treasurer Appointment Form with the Potter County Election Administration Office on July 21, 2014, clearing the way for payment of the appropriate filing fee that accompanied the Declaration of Write-In Candidacy Form.
