Several months back the Hood County TEA Party tried to bring to the attention of the Hood County Election Commission and Hood County Commissioners Court concerns over possible problems with Electronic Voting. At that time both Darrell Cockerham, County Judge, and Jenise Miller, Election Administrator, pled ignorance (perhaps willful) to any issues and stated that they were following the Secretary of State recommendations. At the conclusion of that meeting neither individual followed up on their promise to investigate further.
It has recently come to my attention that there are continued issues within the Election Administration office for Hood County. An issue was brought to Jenise Miller’s attention that the staffing of the polling locations was not following recommended guidelines from the Secretary of State. It is also widely perceived that Jenise Miller shows favorability to the Democrat Party. As can be attested too by the fact that it appears she has used the tactic of loose coordination with the Propaganda Minister from the Hood County News, Kathy Cruz, to site that she is in disagreement with the recommendation since it is not ‘fair’ to the Democrats.
It appears that Ms. Miller has also used a Democrat tactic of continuing to contact the Secretary of State’s office until she ‘allegedly’ got an answer that coincided with her point of view. The first two times their office told her she was incorrect but the THIRD time was the charm and the one which she is running with.
I am aware that the Republican Party of Texas has requested the Secretary of State to provide an official ruling on whether she is in compliance with their directives.
Since Hood County Government has shown a track record of blatant indifference to complying with the codes of the State I would ask all members to contact the Secretary of State’s office at the number below and request their office expedite their ‘official’ ruling on whether our Election Administrator is performing her job within the guidelines of State Code.
Secretary of State
P.O. Box 12060
Austin, Texas 78711-2060
Phone Numbers 1.800.252.VOTE (8683)
And just for good measure I encourage the membership to Contact the Willfully Ignorant Judge Cockerham and let him know you are not amused by his preference for ‘fairness’ as much as whether we comply with the State Codes (ie the Law)!
