Meet the candidates

Come on out to Neighbor’s Kitchen and Yard located at 601 Chestnut Street in downtown Bastrop on Saturday, May 5, at ​11:00am for a candidate forum. ​

Get to know your U.S. Congressional candidates who are on the ballot in the upcoming May 22 runoff election. We’ll be hearing from Tawana Walter-Cadien and Mike Siegel, who are running in District 10, and also Eric Holquin and Roy Barrera, who are running to represent District 27. We are hoping to have a few other local candidates at the event. ​

Neighbor’s will have a bar set up outside near the stage for you to order your own drinks.​ Food can be ordered in the restaurant and carried out to the yard.​ Check out their ​full ​menu here! We will​ also​ have water available.

Neighbor’s has a few picnic tables and benches, but if you’d like to be a little more comfortable, please feel free to bring your own chair. We’ll have candidate merchandise for sale and some give-aways. Plan to come out and enjoy the beautiful Cinco de Mayo weather, visit with like-minded people, and get to hear from some of Texas’s future leaders! What a great way to celebrate this ​beautiful ​time of year.

Where are the Beto rocks?

Here and there, around town and around the county, you might spy a colorful little rock hidden in plain sight. Those are Beto Rocks! Our volunteers are painting them and placing them to call attention to Beto O’Rourke’s campaign for U.S. Senate.

Annie says “Beto Rocks!!  I just placed three rocks around town.  It is such fun!  If Dems knew how much fun it is they would stop by the office on Main Street, pick up a rock or two, and then drive around searching for clever places to put them.  What a hoot!”
