There is a special need for homeowners in the League City area to vote for Allison Cox for justice of the peace.

Many homes in League City are regulated by homeowners associations. Such regulations can be used to keep neighborhoods attractive or to make a court case out of trivial complaints like birdbaths, a playhouse or where you planted a tree.

The Legislature has expanded the jurisdiction of justice courts to include many suits by homeowners associations against homeowners.

Associations demand that the homeowner pay their attorney fees when they file suit or even send a demand letter. That demand is too often decided for the associations and their lawyers without real examination of what fees, if any, are reasonable and appropriate in such cases.

Cox is a homeowner herself and can see both sides of such situations. She has unquestioned integrity, commitment to goals and good common sense. On top of that, she will put in a full day’s work for a full day’s pay. Cox is the best candidate to impartially serve all of the citizens in her precinct and deserves your vote in the Republican primary.
