I cannot believe I almost let this happy note pass by in the excitement of Randy Dunning making the run-off for the HD112 race. The people of the 112th told their outgoing rep, Fred Hill, that his input wasn’t needed.

As you know, the retiring Fred Hill carried the water of liberals by standing against taxpayer protection and property tax relief in his last misspent terms in the Texas House. Fred thought he could be a puppet-master and endorsed one of his buddies, James Shephard. Bad move for Shephard, who came in a distant third.

Republicans in Richardson and Garland had apparently quite enough of Fred, and simply ignored him. I guess, Fred, when you stand in the way of conservative reforms, conservatives don’t care what you have to say. Good lesson for the Fred-juniors out there.
