Letters To The Editor


Letter for Young was not endorsement

Dear Editor,

It is my policy to not make endorsements in House District 13 primary races this year and have not done so in the race for Austin County Republican Chairman.

I was surprised to read in a newspaper that Marc Young referred to a letter that I wrote at his request to the governor regarding an opening on the Texas Board of Professional Engineers. This letter was not an endorsement of Mr. Young for that position, nor was it an endorsement for County Republican Chairman. I communicated to Mr. Young my request that he not use the letter for that purpose.

I have known H.W. “Buddy” Koenig for quite some time and I have known him to be a professional and thoughtful leader. He has a great amount of thoughtful experience in service to his community and to the Republican Party. While I am not making an endorsement in this race and know the voters of Austin County will make the right choice, I owe it to the people of Austin County to set the record straight.

Leighton Schubert

Representative, District 13
