  1. I live in this district, or as I call it “the central part of central.” I’m not surprised that after reading these candidates bios, that there’s nothing but pure garbage to vote for,which explains why I’m not voting. first, you have the idiots that are too lazy and/or stupid to have any form of a website to tell you what they stand for. Then you have the buffoons who regurgitate every cliche’ we’ve heard a million times already. ‘Vote for me cause I’ll not only bring a zillion jobs to our district, but I’ll force these businesses to pay you high wages.’ What a steaming pile of bul….t.

  2. Jim Tolbert is a very serious candidate, who worked hard in the last election campaign, and does indeed have a website to tell you what he stands for.

    1. Wrong again, Helen. That explains why you couldn’t name any specifics, because based on the ignorant, simple-minded posts you’ve crapped out on other sites during the last few years, you’re even more idiotic than the typical brain-dead El Pasoan.
