If nothing else, the House District 112 run-off race may prove to be entertaining. Conservative leader Randy Dunning is facing moderate-to-liberal Angie Button. And, it seems, Angie is hard at work demonstrating why she isn’t qualified for the post.

She told the Dallas Morning News last week that the best policy solutions aren’t to be found in her brain.

Ms. Button, 54, said the current property tax and appraisal system isn’t fair or transparent, but she didn’t say how she would address the issue.

In fact, on several issues, Ms. Button declined to state a firm policy position. …

“We’ve identified the problems,” the marketing executive said. “If I can sit here and find the best solution in my brain, it’s not the best solution.”

Most 10-year-olds can indentify the problems in Texas property tax appraisal system, and declare to be unfair. Taxpayers need a leader who can actually develop policy solutions and promote them in a meaningful way.
