The Republican Party’s candidate for Wilson County Pct. 2 commissioner on the November ballot will be Thomas Welfel, following a 3-1 vote by the party’s Precinct 2 executive committee June 30.

Welfel and Michael A. “Mike” Abbott were the candidates in the party’s March 4 primary, which Abbott won, 483 votes to 464. Abbott was declared ineligible in early April, due to an error on his filing paperwork.

After the meeting, Ruby Manen, the party’s county chairman, said she understood the decision was made after the committee deliberated at length in executive session. She confirmed the certificate of replacement nomination form has been filed with Wilson County Clerk Eva Martinez, duly signed by the committee’s chairman, Deci Murphy.

Murphy said four members of the committee were present -- herself, Dick Evins, Melissa Shannon, and Ginger Zillmann. Linda Vick was absent.

“It was not the least bit contentious,” Murphy said. “We’re dealing with two nice gentlemen. The vote was 3 to 1. This was a very difficult decision.”

Wilson County Patriots member Carter Thomas has watched the nomination process closely.

Though not present for the meeting, he offered his perspective on the proceedings.

“I disagree with the meeting taking place largely in executive session to do the people’s business,” Thomas said. “The people voted for Mike Abbott. If I have the opportunity and authority, I will seek an opinion ... to see why the county executive committee is not covered by the Texas Open Meetings Act.”

Indefensible..... 1. (a) Incapable of being maintained as right or valid. (b) Incapable of being justified or excused. It's a bit amusing to observe the few republicans trying to defend the indefensible. A foolish ... More ›

In the 2012 elections, Republicans shot themselves in the foot by choosing candidates that were not likely to succeed in the general election. It appears that the Wilson County Republican party officials ... More ›

Yep, when the Democrats moved to the far left, it didn't take long for the GOP to fill the empty space. Not a dime's difference.
