Shown above are some excerpts from campaign ads published by candidates challenging the incumbent in the 2000 election for sheriff of Gillespie County. Despite their efforts, the incumbent was re-elected.
A thought-provoking recent column by T. R. Fehrenbach entitled "Bad governance is the electorate's just deserts [sic]--harsh, yes, but true" concluded, "And people still get the kind of government they deserve." I wonder what he'd say if told that a criminal defense attorney who is originally from back east recently ran for mayor of Fredericksburg? (This candidate backed out of the race at the last minute in favor of a local candidate who was not elected.)
