Casarez new Milam Demo chairman
Casarez was appointed to replace Donald Schuerman during a meeting of precinct chairs Thursday in Cameron.
Schuerman resigned the post to seek the position of Precinct 2 Justice of the Peace in 201o.
Casarez said during Thursday's meeting the precinct chairs also expressed appreciation to Schuerman for "all his hard work and time" and recommended that he be appointed to the soon-to-bevacant post of Pct. 2 JP to serve out the unexpired term of Don Ahrendt.
"This primary I will do my best to help all our Democratic candidates in an independent manner," Casarez said. "I would also like all Milam County Democrats to know that we have to defend our president and party."
