HOUSTON – Harris County Republican Party Chairman Cindy Siegel released the following statement regarding the selection for the new Harris County Elections Administrator Clifford Tatum, with the November general election just four months away.
“Given the major failures of the March primary managed by the previous unqualified and inexperienced Elections Administrator, the Harris County GOP remained vigilant during the search process for this replacement. I have concerns about the short amount of time to prepare for the November election, but I am optimistic that Mr. Tatum will do a better job and has more experience than the previous Elections Administrator. However, I am still concerned about the firing of certain long term employees with institutional knowledge, which occurred after Ms. Longoria submitted her resignation in March. Dismantling the institution causes a breakdown in the transition process and I believe that issue should be looked into and addressed by the new replacement.”
