Two days ago an e-mail was sent out to Harris County employees asking if they could volunteer to pick-up the County’s election equipment, document and process ballot boxes on election night.
What struck me as odd, was that the County Administrator, David Berry was one of the employees to request the volunteers alongside the disgraced Election Administrator Isabel Longoria. Prior to this e-mail being sent out on April 5th, David Berry had requested $2 million from our general fund to be transferred to our Elections funds budget for the “Harris County Employee Election Worker Program”.
I have to ask: why are these unelected bureacrats asking County employees to volunteer if Commissioners Court just transferred $2 million for the Election Worker Program? Keep in mind, the County’s Election Department has a budget of nearly $30 million, so it’s a questionable move to already be making transfers this early in the year when the budget was just approved in February.
We need to make sure that we have Republicans working
in the election. I’m sure they have purged the list and are not contacting them. The Harris County Republican Party needs to make sure this happens!
Just called commissioner Ramsey and Cagle office
