State legislative candidates attend forum hosted by League of Women Voters of Corpus Christi

CORPUS CHRISTI — The forum {also} featured a session with state District 34 candidates Rep. Connie Scott, R-Robstown, and her Democratic challenger, former state Rep. Abel Herrero, who held the seat for three terms.

Scott did not attend the event and did not respond to a text message asking what kept her from attending. Herrero was permitted to give a statement but was not asked questions by moderators.

“Connie Scott, who once again is a no-show … has failed to represent the best interests of this district,” he said. “I’m running because I know my experience, knowledge, education, service and dedication means that I can do a better job.”
