Thanks to everyone who came out on election day. I just got the numbers from the County Clerk and nearly 42% of election day voters voted Bellow and overall 40.38% voted Bellow. That is an amazing amount of support. Thank you so much to everyone who helped! I wish Wayne McDaniel the best as the next County Judge. Contested races get the voters more involved and aware of issues like tax increases and I am confident that, even though I lost, the county leadership will address these issues. Thanks and God Bless!
Statement from David Bellow regarding the Hardin County Judge election results:
Official Statement: The race was much closer than many expected, but the results are in and we have come up short with us getting 40.38% of the vote. I wish Mr. McDaniel all the best as our next county judge.
I would particularly like to thank all the folks who helped out with my campaign. I couldn't have done it without you and I love the people on my campaign team. We were expected to get defeated in a landslide, but because of all the great people on our team we were one of the closest races in Hardin County and garnered about 40% of the vote.
Please know I will never give up on fighting for conservative principles at all levels of government.

Bellow believes in:
As County Judge, I will vote against ANY tax increase and will stop the deficit spending.
Currently the County is spending more than it brings in, depleting the reserve, and having to raise taxes.
Fair, Honest, Transparent Government
Defend County Residents from Unconstitutional Mandates from President Obama
Pro-Life and Pro-Guns
I was fighting pro abortion and anti gun Obama when most Hardin County Officials, including my opponent, were still on Obama's Democrat team.
Family Values - Christian Values
Former Senior Law Enforcement Officer
In order to run for political office, I resigned my position as an officer at the Maximum Security Penitentiary in Beaumont. I still think about my fellow officers. They put their lives on the line every day literally fighting with murderers, terrorists, and drug smugglers. When they transport inmates through the community, the officer and his/her gun is the only thing keeping the community safe from the dangerous felon. It is not the most glamorous of law enforcement jobs, but they are a vital part of the law enforcement community and many have died in the line of duty. Please pray for the safety of these men and women.

The County Judge Votes with the Commissioners to create and approve a county budget, and set the tax rate.
CAP Property Tax Appraisal Increases at 5% or less
I call on the Texas Legislature to cap tax increases due to Appraisal Increases at 5% or less. Not only has Hardin County increased the Tax Rate, but appraisals have also skyrocketed which has increased the amount of taxes Hardin County residents must pay. These large increases create an undue burden on people who have not received any pay increases. It is not right that someone who has had the same house for 30 years has to sell their house because their appraisal has skyrocketed due to someone building an expensive house on the same street. This cap would not impact anyone with frozen appraisals. If you are already frozen you would stay frozen. This cap would only limit the amount that someone's appraisal can go up if their appraisal goes up.

I am part owner of Eden Pro Services (Eden Pool Service). My brothers, brother in laws, and I started the company. It is part of the American Dream! For being a young company, we have really grown and been successful due to strong leadership and a fiscally conservative philosophy. We provide services from Lumberton to Conroe to College Station. The picture below is a picture of two of our employees and two of the company vehicles and here is our website www.EdenProServices.com - High Taxes can cripple companies and can kill jobs. I oppose tax increases. As a small business owner, I know the pain of tax time for a business. We just recently did ours. I OPPOSE tax increases and will work to develop new ways to being in industry and jobs to Hardin County. Part of this plan includes making sure Hardin County is business friendly and does not tax businesses to the point of driving them away (as has happened in Hardin County). The fiscal conservative philosophy I use in the company, and my new ideas of how to make government more efficient and effective, will help lead the County into the future. Vote David Bellow for Hardin County Judge!
