Texas Agriculture Commissioner Candidate Eric Opiela Dicusses Importance of Ag. Commissioner’s Office [AUDIO]

Eric Opiela, Facebook

On the Tuesday edition of The Chad Hasty Show, Eric Opiela spoke with Chad Hasty about his campaign for Texas Agriculture Commissioner.

Opiela stated that the Ag. Commissioner’s race is an unfairly overlooked race, and that a number of Texans simply leave that portion of the ballot blank when they vote. He explained that agriculture is the 2nd-largest industry in the state of Texas, but added that it also covers a number of issues that are important to urban areas as well, such as water regulation and school lunches.

On school lunches, Opiela said he wants to focus on Texas-grown food, spending less on administrative overhead, and putting control of those lunches back into the hands of the local school districts. He also hopes to bring local control back to water regulation as well, and added that it should not be a battle of rural districts versus urban districts.

Polls will be open today until 7 PM.
