Bail bond reform and Harvey repairs are likely to be major issues in the primary contest between incumbent Commissioner Rodney Ellis and former felony court judge Maria T. Jackson.


There’s no Republican running for Harris County Commissioner Precinct 1, but the Democratic primary won’t be a walk in the park for the incumbent commissioner. Commissioner Rodney Ellis is facing a primary challenge from former felony court judge Maria T. Jackson.

Former Harris County Judge Ed Emmett says Jackson poses a real threat to Ellis. “Maria Jackson is making the argument that, following Harvey, really nothing’s been done in terms of houses repaired,” Emmett said. “I mean, that’s been well reported that there’ve only been a handful of households that have gotten money. And whether it’s the federal government that gets the blame or the state or the county, that’s going to play an interesting dynamic in this race.”
