Who is best qualified to be the next State Comptroller?

The two leading contenders for the State Comptroller’s office in the Republican Primary offered conflicting views on who was best qualified for the post.  According to an article in the Dallas Morning News  Rep. Harvey Hilderbran says it’s eight years of service on the House Ways and Means Committee.  He was pointing out that his opponent, Sen. Glenn Hegar, had less legislative time on the Senate Finance Committee.  Hegar’s response was to stress his business credentials, making Hilderbran’s past quarter century in the House seeming more of a liability than an asset.

While the two CPAs in the race, Republican Raul Torres and Democrat Mike Collier, were mentioned in the article, the News missed to opportunity to point out that those two CPAs might indeed have the best credentials for the post.  The article was headlined:  “Top Texas comptroller contenders squabble over experience.”
