Democratic Endorsements: SAD

Democratic clubs kick off endorsements

In the first round of Democratic club endorsements, the South Austin Democrats on Tuesday announced its slate in the judicial and county commissioner races. A candidates forum, which included an unusually wide field of judicial hopefuls, preceded the vote tally. Incumbent Margaret Gómez picked up the club's support in the Precinct 4 commissioners race. The group's judicial picks include Cliff Brown, 147th District Court; Amy Clark Meachum, 201st District Court; Karen Sage, 299th District Court; David Crain, 331st District Court; and John Lipscombe, County Court at Law No. 3.
