I have 57 years of energy TECHNOLOGY, EXPERIENCE, and KNOW-HOW, plus the most important - the ability to use the ART of assembling these three major basics of the oil and gas industry to solve problems quickly and efficiently. My areas of research and study have always promoted environmental protection by reducing contamination of our water supplies focused on oil/gas well casing, cementing, and oil/gas well fracturing - period of over 57 years. Vote early for Dale Henry.”
ROBERT SUMMERLIN: “My extensive experience in the courtroom makes me uniquely qualified to be your next Criminal Court Judge. I possess the right balance of fairness and toughness, so that I can offer justice that is unparalleled.”
"Judge Kyle Carter has presided over more than 5,000 cases to disposition, including over 130 full jury or bench trials, all while going the extra mile to save Harris County’s hard-earned taxpayer dollars.

I began my legal career as a law clerk at the U.S. Supreme Court, and I was a partner at Bracewell & Giuliani LLP before taking the bench. The attorneys in my district chose me as the best candidate for this position in three anonymous polls. I won the State Bar of Texas Judicial Poll and the Houston Bar Association Preference Poll, and I was overwhelmingly rated the most "well qualified" candidate in this race in the Houston Bar Association Qualification Poll.* Those who protect our neighborhoods have chosen me.

TAWANA CADIEN: "Let's face reality. Right here in Texas, hospitals are closing, costs are going up, and 25% of Texans are currently uninsured. A major reason for that is when people are treated who have no insurance, someone has to pay. The Affordable Care Act addresses that. It is a CONSTITUTIONAL law that provides coverage to many that does not currently exist."
