Democratic chairman bows out
Polk County Enterprise - January 2010
LIVINGSTON — The Polk County Democratic Party will get a new chairman and three candidates seeking local office in the March 2 primary will be unopposed, according to a written statement Polk County Democratic Party Chairman Sharon Teal, filed with County Clerk Schelana Walker Thursday. Travis Jackson is the lone candidate for the county chairman’s job, according to the statement. Teal has not responded to numerous requests for information since the beginning of the filing period for the 2010 primaries. The statement shows County Court at Law Judge Stephen Phillips has filed for another term. Pct. 3 Justice of the Peace Larry Whitworth will also have a clear shot at another four years in office since he faces no opposition in the primary or November general election. Wesley R. “Randy” Brown has filed for Pct. 4 Justice of the Peace and will face the winner from among a three-candidate field in the Republican primary. 258th District Judge Elizabeth Coker filed with state party officials in Austin and is unopposed.
