With two weeks until the early voting starts in the May 27 Burnet County Judge primary runoff election, candidates James Oakley and George Russell each has a different set of items on his to-do list.

Oakley, who came close to winning the Republican nomination and for all intents the election when he received 48 percent of the vote in a three-person race against Russell and Linda Rogers in the March 4 primary, hopes to keep his supporters motivated and engaged until the early voting period begins May 19.

Russell, who got 30 percent of the vote in the primary, has to find a way to close that significant gap if he hopes to overtake Oakley and win the runoff. Last week at a candidate forum sponsored by the Republican Club of Burnet County, he believes he found a soft spot in his opponent’s defenses.

    Hmm. So he thinks he has found a soft spot in his opponents defenses eh.. Well here is a soft and or touchy spot in his defenses.. As Mayor and under his tenure he has Yet to get services (water/sewer) to the Lake Marble falls subdivision and the city is in NON compliance with State law.So if he cannot follow State law mandates then How is he going to follow state laws as county Judge? I would think after all that Judges would do that now,would,nt they?
