I first met Mark Riley when he came to Parker County to work in radio, and then as Chamber of Commerce manager, where he was very successful in dealing with people and promoting Weatherford and Parker County. Urged to run for county commissioner, he was elected to two terms and then was elected county judge, where he has been able to increase even more his effectiveness for his constituents.
Judge Riley’s aptitude for dealing with people, his open and generous temperament and his positive attitude make him extremely fit to head our government. Mark has also been appointed to serve on regional and state boards, which give him access to other opportunities for his home county.

Support for Johnson for JP Precinct 4
When evaluating a candidate for office, voters should consider whether the candidate has voted in past elections. Voters should also consider whether a candidate has switched political parties to increase his chances of winning the elected office.
An example is Bernard Suchocki, candidate for Justice of the Peace in Precinct 4. Suchocki is a Democrat. Parker County voting records show that Suchocki has never voted in any Republican primary but has voted in the Democrat primary.
Lynn Marie Johnson has voted consistently as a Republican. Moreover she is the most qualified person in this race and she has done a great job in that position. Please join me in supporting Lynn Marie Johnson for Justice of the Peace, Precinct 4.

Johnson for judge
The race for Precinct 4 Justice of the Peace has produced some real entertainment in an odd sort of way.
Mr. Bernard Suchocki based his qualifications for Precinct 4 Justice of the Peace on something that happened almost a half century ago when he was in his 20s. He and more than 200,000 others worked for NASA in the 1960s. The clear implication in his mail advertisements and speeches was that he was a “rocket scientist” because he worked for NASA and deserved to be judge. Following that logic, if a person is found in a garage, he or she is a car. However, even if that person found in a garage is a Studebaker, he or she is still not a judge.
