EMC spends an evening with the candidates (with event videos)

Concerned Citizens of Montgomery hosted a candidates’ forum at the New Caney High School Auditorium Monday night, with Pct. 4 Constable Kenneth “Rowdy” Hayden as the emcee. The event drew a large and impassioned crowd, with some determined to keep incumbents in office and others who were equally convinced it was time for change.

Arguably, the biggest rivalry was between Pct. 4 incumbent Commissioner Ed Rinehart and his challenger for the second time in two elections, Monte Harris Lane. With their many supporters wearing t-shirts proclaiming their loyalties to one or the other as they shouted and cheered during the political forum, at times it seemed more like a sporting event.

Two other candidates, Hank Murray and Clarence Quinn, are also seeking Rinehart’s seat. However, Murray and Quinn’s supporters seemed few and far between by comparison to their competition.

Most of the candidates and supporters in the other races were more subdued, with Congressman Kevin Brady even pointing out that his young son was with him and joking to his competition that the boy’s presence should be a reason for them to “go easy” on him.

Watch video of the candidates posted below. Additional information will be posted later and another forum is scheduled for tonight, hosted by Montgomery County Republican Women at River Plantation Country Club.
