By Elizabeth Tanner/Post Dispatch—
With campaigning underway in Garza County, House District 68 State Representative candidates John Berry (R), Jason Brinkley (R) and David Spiller (R) recently visited Post, Texas.
Hitting downtown Post, Berry stopped for lunch at Papa D’s on Jan. 3, visiting with local residents during a four-day journey with wife, Melanie, in which the couple traveled to multiple counties, including Bastrop, Cottle, Crosby and Floyd, in District 68.
Following Berry’s visit, Spiller dropped by the Garza County Courthouse for a 30-minute introductory visit in which he met with residents on the front steps.
Additionally, Brinkley, stopping in Post on Jan. 6, met with the Post Area Chamber of Commerce to discuss and gain insights on community and local issues.
Planning to attend the Post Area Chamber of Commerce’s Candidates’ Forum, scheduled for 6:30 p.m., Jan. 14 at the Post Community Center Youth Room, 129 W. Main, residents have another opportunity to meet with Berry and Spiller before the Jan. 23 Special Election.
Brinkley, who previously planned to attend the Candidate’s Forum, has since announced that he will no longer be attending due to high contact Covid-19 exposure.
Also on the ballot are Craig Carter (R), a former candidate overlapping Texas Senate District 30, and Charles D. Gregory (D), a retired postal worker from Childress, Texas.
Currently, Garza County registered voters can cast early ballots at the clerk’s office in the Garza County Courthouse, 300 W. Main, weekdays, 8 a.m. to noon and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. through Jan. 19.
Election Day voting is scheduled to take place at the Post Community Center, 129 W. Main, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Jan. 23.
