Chair Dr. Allison Campolo Releases Statement on Resignation of Tarrant County’s Elections Administrator Heider Garcia
Tarrant County, Texas – Today, Tarrant County Elections Administrator, Heider Garcia, announced his resignation, effective June 23, 2023. Tarrant County Democratic Party Chair Dr. Allison Campolo released the following statement:
“The Tarrant County Democratic Party is alarmed about the circumstances that led to the resignation of Tarrant County Elections Administrator Heider Garcia. Garcia has provided transparency in voting processes, and has communicated those voting procedures clearly to the public.
We condemn Judge Tim O’Hare and other members of the extremist Republican party for fostering an environment of misinformation and distrust in our electoral process such that a professional Elections Administrator can no longer facilitate voting in Tarrant County. Under Garcia’s leadership, our county has demonstrated fairness and accuracy in our voting systems, as verified by numerous audits and citizen recounts.
We are concerned that O’Hare will seek to appoint an election denier to replace Garcia, who will remove transparency and disenfranchise voters. We ask all Tarrant County voters to remain vigilant on whom Judge O’Hare is interested in for Tarrant County’s next Election Administrator, and to make your voices heard at the Commissioners Court.”
