December 9, 2019

HARRIS COUNTY, TX – It’s the beginning of a new era in Harris County. After 30 years in office, Commissioner Steve Radack has decided not to run for reelection. That leaves an open seat for Harris County Commissioner in Precinct 3.

Michael Moore, Democratic Candidate for Harris County Commissioner, Precinct 3, made the following statement:

“While I disagree with many, many positions Commissioner Radack has taken over the years, I do thank him for his over 30 years of public service. I also commend the commissioner on his focus on parks and hike and bike trails.

“We’re moving into a new era of county government, and I plan to focus on the basics: improved flood control and more green infrastructure, new transit solutions and relief from traffic congestion, better parks, trails and safer communities, a stronger, better Harris County health care system, and transparent and efficient county government.”
