Ken Legler, a Pasadena native, has announced his candidacy for state representative, District 144, to fill the vacancy left by Robert Talton's planned retirement from the Texas Legislature.I have heard of another possible GOP candidate but can't find anything online.
Talton has announced his intention to run for US Congress.
"I am proud of the job Rep. Talton has done. His service to our area, since his election in 1992, will be a model for anyone who hopes to succeed him," Legler said. "My candidacy is in response to the many local business, community and political leaders who have asked me to offer myself for this position. I welcome the challenge and this new opportunity to serve my community."
