A few things we wanted to share with you today:

Cascos Tapped. Governor-elect Greg Abbott appointed Cameron County Judge Carlos Cascos to be the next Secretary of State. Cascos, a Republican, won re-election last week with 54% of the vote and will begin a new term as county judge on January 1. Once he resigns, the commissioner’s court will appoint a replacement to serve until the 2016 general election. All four commissioners are Democrats.
