McLennan County Democratic candidate makes history


FOX44 is Your Local Election Headquarters for the Midterm Elections. 

We first caught up with McLennan County Judge Democratic candidate Rick Allen – who is the case manager for the Heart of Texas One Stop, a business owner and a former Waco city councilor.

A few of his platforms include unifying the Commissioners Court and looking at improvements to emergency management in the county.

Allen says despite the outcome, he wants to get back to work on Wednesday and continue serving the county.

We also spoke with Katherine Turner-Pearson, who is the Democratic candidate for House District 56. Turner-Pearson was born and raised in Waco and is also a Baylor graduate. Her focus includes property tax reform, education finance and prison reform.

Turner-Pearson says despite the outcome, she appreciates all the outpour of support from the community during her campaign efforts.

County Commissioner Precinct 2 Candidate Patricia Chisolm-Miller is the only local Democratic candidate taking over a seat this election.

Chisolm-Miller has been working different positions with McLennan County Commissioners for 22 years. Her focus includes the recruiting and the retention of businesses in the county – also focusing on small, minority business owners.

Chisolm-Miller will also make history by being the first African-American woman on the McLennan County Commissioners Court.
