Dear Harris County Republican Precinct Chairs and Harris County Republican Primary Voters,
I attended the Harris County Republican Party Advisory Board meeting via Zoom on Saturday, February 10, 2024. At the meeting, I asked whether there is a written agreement between the Harris County Republican Party and Harris County regarding the 2024 primary election so that Rodney Ellis is not running our primary election. The answer was NO. In short, Rodney Ellis is running the Harris County Republican Primary in 2024.
In its ongoing training of county chairs, on November 20, 2023, the Texas Secretary of State’s office gave a presentation on Election Contracts, Joint Election Agreements and Leases for Equipment. I guess Cindy missed this training.
On November 14, 2022, the “prospective-only injunctive relief” lawsuit was filed by the HCRP against Harris County. This case was dismissed by the court on January 29, 2024 because the HCRP lawyer missed a deadline. Normally, dismissals are filed by a party. Not in this case. On November 1, 2023, the trial court judge issued a notice that she would dismiss the case if HCRP failed to take action on the lawsuit. No action was taken by HCRP, so the case was dismissed. This lawsuit sure would be helpful right about now.
HCRP needs a change in leadership. Now.
