Ernie Wentrcek is seeking the Republican nomination for Brazos County judge. Monday morning, he talked about his campaign for this March primary on the only local morning television newscast.
Wentrcek was the latest of 15 candidates who will appear throughout February on Brazos Valley This Morning. His opponents for the Republican nomination are Brian Alg, Mark Conlee and Duane Peters. They will appear on the show later in the week.
The current judge, Randy Sims, is not running for re-election. There are no Democrats running for this office, though an independent, Doug O'Brien, has announced he is running.
Wentrcek discussed his motivations for running, what his top priorities would be if elected, his take on the tax rate for the county, and his thoughts on attracting business and jobs.
The former Bryan mayor also answered questions after the on-air segment for the morning show's Facebook and YouTube sites. That video is available below. Become a fan of BVTM on Facebook for exclusive behind the scenes content and updates.
