| Burnt Orange Report enthusiastically and unanimously endorses Herb Evans for Justice of the Peace Precinct 5.
Evans is a hard-working public servant who voters would be wise to return to the court. He capably executes the office of Justice of the Peace, which handles small civil claims and minor criminal misdeeds. It is the branch of county government that citizens are most likely to interface with, and we believe that his experienced hand is best suited to continue in this role.
Evans is a familiar face to Democratic activists in Travis County, owing to his tireless work to deputize voter registrars. We support him over his opponent, who appears to be using his campaign to advocate for federal and legislative law changes that are vastly beyond the purview of a justice of the peace.
Voters should re-elect Herb Evans to JP-5.
Early Voting: February 18-February 28, 2014 | Election Day: Tuesday March 4
