Unpaid Taxes

Two candidates for county office share a business that didn't pay its franchise tax until The Monitor asked them why.

County judge candidate J.D. Salinas and county clerk candidate Arturo Guajardo Jr. are two of four partners in Hidalgo Investments Inc., which didn't pay the tax as it was supposed to last November. The candidates say they didn't know the tax had not been paid.

Guajardo, of course, put his name and picture on the county clerk website when he's just a deputy clerk. If he gets elected, I wonder if junior will steer county business to his firm, the way his father steered PSJA school district business to his store.

I think it's pretty obvious that Junior is a no-no for this position. His involvement in this type of business first of all is convenient, but then his failure to pay his taxes show his lack of responsibility.

Besides, I don't want him to turn out like his contraversial father.

My vote will go to Balde Morales. I've read that he has the Clerk's office experience, and the best education between all of them. And his independence solidifies this.
