BELTON — What was supposed to be a friendly opportunity for down-ballot, courthouse candidates to introduce themselves to Bell County’s legal community quickly turned into a metaphorical fistfight between the candidates for judge in the 264th District Court.

Jeff Parker, who is challenging incumbent Martha Trudo, began the meeting by reminding everyone in attendance that he is “a single-issue candidate” running to help spur the creation of a veterans court in Bell County. He jumped on comments Trudo had previously made about the fact that veterans courts were an unnecessary cost for the county and said “there is no cost. There are grants available.”

        Finally! Someone to put Trudo to task. Like many incumbents - an opportunity to try and send you to the house. Find something else to do.
