Chron: Richard Raymond Endorses Nina Schaefer In Fort Bend County District Attorneys Race!

Who are endorsing the DA candidates?

March 12, 2010

Richmond attorney Nina Schaefer has gotten a boost in her bid to take over District Attorney John Healey’s long-held seat with endorsements from Sheriff Milton Wright and Richard Raymond, who didn’t get enough votes in the primary to make the runoff.

Wright told me Thursday morning that he made the decision out of frustration with what he said was a lack of prosecution of cases that ought to have been prosecuted.

On the other hand, Wright said, Healey's office “wasted tax dollars” pursuing cases that shouldn’t have been prosecuted.

The length of prosecution and his office’s efficiency also has been a concern to him, Wright said.

“The problems seem to have grown from year to year, and it got pretty bad the last two years," he said.

And he added, “Healey is a nice guy, and there are good people working in his office, but it’s time for new leadership.”

Schaefer said she also received a pledge from Raymond to support her.

Schaefer said people endorsing her also include Needville Mayor Delbert Wendt, Fulshear Mayor Jamie Roberts, Needville school board president Jim Kocian and former county Sheriff Tiny Gaston...
