The 130 Showdown

VOTE NOVEMBER 6, 2018

The upcoming election in Caldwell County isn’t about Republican versus Democrat… it’s about those who oppose the dump and those who don’t. The lines are clearly drawn between candidates on opposing sides of a trash-filled future for your children.

CANDIDATES FOR COUNTY JUDGE

ALFREDO MUNOZ

Alfredo Munoz has always been against the landfill and promises to remain against it.

As Precinct 1 commissioner, Munoz voted to oppose the landfill, and to halt negotiations with Green Group.

HOPPY HADEN

Haden claims he is against the dump, but was a founding member of Growth and Progress for Caldwell County, a group whose only purpose was to encourage a deal with Green Group for the 130 Garbage dump.

Haden was the Chairman for the Citizens group chosen to negotiate safer standards with Green Group. Once they came up with those suggestions, Haden dissolved the group.

As Precinct 1 Commissioner Haden voted to end the county’s legal fight against the dump and had secret meetings with Green Group while the County was fighting the garbage dump in court.
