Haggerty loses county commissioner seat to former El Paso Rep. Carl Robinson


Incumbent Andrew Haggerty conceded the Precinct 4 County Commissioner race to former city council representative Carl Robinson.

As of 10 p.m. unofficial results showed Robinson in the lead with 57.84 of the vote to represent northeast and west El Paso.

Robinson is no stranger to the political theater. He severed on El Paso City Council from 2009 to 2017 for District 4, which represents the northeast.

“I want to thank god first. Then I would like to thank the voters who came out in this election. We are just very happy with the early results," Robinson said Tuesday night.

Haggerty stated in our Beyond the Podium series he was running for re-election to continue the work he and the rest of commissioners’ court have been able to do while he has been in office.

“We’ve have not raised taxes. In our first three years, we did not raise our tax rate at all. This year, we actually lowered our tax rate since the property values went up so we can ease the burden,” Haggerty said.

Haggerty was elected to office in November 2014.
