Anyone else with CONFIRMABLE candidate update info may email me at "texianusa@yahoo.com ".

Candidates with "articles" or statements may also submit them for posting to the "news" section instead of having to use a "string" that does NOT have a "add photo" option for recognition purposes.

UPDATE: Pct.1 Commissioner's race

Keith Kesinger, hope the spelling is right, is running against "Tiger" Worsham.

Don't know the guy, but just him running is enough for my support in THIS position at the moment!

If people dont get up, and vote right, this county will fall. You look closely at ALL the elected officials. They are somehow tied to Mark Evans or Queen Coker. It sis time for this to end. Richard Steptoe is running for constable against "Shoe Shoe". Keith Kesinger is up for Pct 1 Comm. Joe Ned Dean is up for DA, which is NOT A MARK EVANS tie. Brent Lee will be for Sheriff. Rusty Barrett for Comm against Cecil Webb. So people have some choices.........

How can Kent Blanchard run as Constable in Trinity County, when He lives in Houston County.This is another practice that needs to end.But shoe shoe as they call him is in with Evans and Jones.Maybe that explains how he can run and not live in this county!!!

Shoe Shoe cant run IF someone WILL raise the issue. Start a petition to the commissioner's court that the residents of Trinity County protest his position due to his current home location. But then again, Jannet Reynolds DOES NOT live in Applesprings. She just has an address there, an she is running for DA. If Shoe Shoe and Jannet are put on the tickets, then the only option is to vote for Richard Steptoe and Joe Ned Dean. This will remove them from the monarchy!!!!

Texian, what can we do about these people running for office that does not live in this county.If we need a petition then let's get one started.
I really don't care who runs for office, as long as they live in this county.We simply cannot allow this to happen!!!

You had better do a little bit better research on Kent Blanchard. He definitely does live in Trinity County. He has always lived in Trinity County. His parents have always lived in Trinity County. By the way, he is for the concerned citizens of Precinct 4, and doing a great job -- by the way, it's Kent "Shoo-shoo" Blanchard, a family name because he's a family man

You meant to say that Kent Blanchard parks his car at his brother's house in Trinity County, then goes home to his house in Houston County.
Claiming to live somewhere and actually living there are two different things.If he tries to run for office, he will soon know the difference!!!!
Speaking of family, how many years difference in kent and his wife.Just wondering what that made him when he was going with her????????
GOOD LUCK!!!

As a resident of Precinct 4, I am very proud to say that I am supporting Kent Blanchard. He is a very dedicated individual. He has the time and is committed to doing a good job. Richard Steptoe has a full-time job and will have absolutely no time to help our end of the county. Steptoe even stated that he is doing this for the money. Thank goodness that Kent Blanchard is doing it for his county because the pay is not all that good. Next time you have something bad to say about Kent, why don't you come on over to our end of the county on any weekend or during the week and you will see Kent Blanchard out here making a difference. He has a very large support base and we're not going anywhere.

No one said Kent was a bad guy. But the fact is, he DOES NOT live in Trinity County. Yes, his family does, who are very good people. Kent does get out an work, and i have NO problem with him winning an election as Constable, BUT ONLY IF it's fair, which means he would have to have his ACTUAL home in trinity county. to do other wise, is being dishonest, and is not teh duty of a "trusted" officer. So help Kent "shoo shoo" move his family within Pct. 4, an then help him win. But be honest and fair.

Just do not take us for idiots, we know where he lives.Like Been There said, just be honest.If a persons word is not honest, what will that say for them??He knew long before now that he wanted to run for that office. He should have moved into Trinity county 6 months prior to runnung, like the rules say to do.There will be no exceptions here, not even for a good ol boy!!!!!!!

He does live in Trinity County. Do a little leg work. Check the tax roles and see where he pays his taxes. They are paid in Trinity County. This is an old story anyway. There was another "concerned citizen" that went to the commissioner's court before he was ever appointed. It was found to be legal and above-board. Kent Blanchard is the real deal. He works hard with very little pay and puts in a lot of hours. It's so sad to see people try to discredit him and call him dishonest over this. Give him a call, he would love to tell you all of the pertinent information. If you live in Precinct 4, I urge you to talk with this man before you condemn him with incorrect information. You have got to agree that he deserves nothing less.

I don't care what paper says, Just go watch where he sleeps tonight.Unless he spends the night with someone else or stays in a motel, he will sleep in Houston County!!

Besides all of this, if he lived next door to the court house in groveton, I would not vote for him!! He is in with Jones and Evans, try and dispute that one!! That is the very thing we are trying to get away from!!!!
