HOUSTON — Harris County GOP Chairman Cindy Siegel issued the following statement regarding the acquittal of Attorney General Ken Paxton.
HOUSTON — Today, the Republican National Committee (RNC) announced Houston as its selection for the 2028 Republican National Convention.
HOUSTON — Today, the Texas Supreme Court rejected the attempt of the Harris County Government and Elections Administrator Clifford Tatum to bar the enforcement of SB 1750, which returns running Harris County elections back to two elected officials rather than an unchecked bureaucrat.
HOUSTON — This morning, attorney Andy Taylor filed an intervention on behalf of the Harris County GOP to support the State of Texas’ passage of SB 1750, the bill that returns the authority of running Harris County elections back to elected officials and to fight the Harris County Democrat-led government’s lawsuit to overturn this critical legislation.
HOUSTON — This morning, Harris County Attorney Christian Menefee, Harris County Commissioner Adrian Garcia, and others held a press conference where they spread false narratives and highlighted a baseless lawsuit in an attempt to stop the will of Harris County voters.
While discussing whether or not to move a program to the District Attorney’s office, Lina blatantly disrespects her colleagues, the office she holds, and her constituents when she loses her mind talking about Democrat Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg, saying, “I don’t know what the F**K she’s threatened you with” to the other commissioners.
We always knew that Lina was unfit for office, but this shocked even us. Behavior like this is unacceptable and disrespectful of the office she holds, her fellow commissioners, and Harris County voters. Harris County residents deserve a leader who won’t crumble under pressure!
In 2020 I was elected to serve as the Harris County Republican Party Chairman. Part of my responsibility is overseeing the Republican primary elections and recruiting Republican election workers for general elections. Additionally, I serve as the only Republican on the Harris County Elections Commission.
HOUSTON — Today, the Texas House passed critical legislation restoring accountability to Harris County elections. SB 1750 rightfully returns the responsibility of running elections to duly elected officials rather than a partisan appointee.
“The Elections Administrator’s office has been a colossal failure since the moment it was formed,” said Harris County GOP Chairman Cindy Siegel. “The responsibility of running elections should have never been taken away from the Harris County Clerk and Tax Assessor-Collector, both elected officials, to begin with.
“The only things we’ve seen come from the Elections Administrator’s office are mismanagement and incompetence, resulting in countless missteps that have led to grossly underserving Harris County voters. Ultimately, if the EA could pull off an election without major problems, the state legislature wouldn’t have had to step in. Unfortunately, as we’ve seen from unprecedented issues, whether that be missing ballots or ballot paper shortages and everything in between, they can’t get it right. Someone eventually has to step in and say, ‘Enough,’ and today, the Texas Legislature did exactly that by passing SB 1750.
“I would like to thank Senator Paul Bettencourt for authoring this bill and the entire Harris County delegation of Republicans for seeing this through to the end, and I look forward to Governor Abbott signing SB 1750 into law.”
