Introducing Daniel McCarthy for Travis County Judge

    I believe that nobody knows how to spend your money better than you. And if you decide to collectivize and pool that money for better local transportation, more equitable justice and a booming economy then it damn well better be managed correctly.  That is why I am running for Travis County Judge - Accountable, responsible stewardship of the County. Bonfides: Grew up next door in Dripping Springs.  Graduated from Texas State University with a bachelor's degree in Political Science.   A proud homeowner in South Austin.  I have lived and worked in Austin now for my whole professional career.   I ran for mayor in San Marcos in 2008, and got 20% of the vote with only $200 spent. I beat my opponents in the votes/dollar metric by 200 to 1.* I know how to stretch a dollar.  * "But diminishing returns" you might say, "no way that would have held up as he spent more."Sure, but even a $1,000 spend with 33% lower incremental returns per $200
