We've promised to pay close attention to the State Comptroller's race pitting Republican State Sen. Glenn Hegar against newcomer Democrat Mike Collier.
As reported before, Collier is a CPA, a former partner in an international accounting firm and former CFO of an oil and gas business. Who is this CPA whose first venture into politicis is to run for the State Comptroller's office? Collier spent an hour being interviewed by Evan Grant in the Texas Tribune TribLive presentation. This interview, which included some questions from the audience, gives the viewer a good sense of Collier and how he would approach the comptroller's job. You can watch a video of the presentation on the Tribune's website.
TribLive also has a scheduled session with Sen. Hegar at 8:00 AM on May 29th if you want to catch the live presentation.
