Overstreet Hosting Meet and Greets

One of the two candidates in a runoff for Potter County Court at Law #2 will be hosting a series of meet and greet meetings ahead of the upcoming election.

Wade Overstreet, a Potter County prosecutor, will be hosting a series of meet and greets over the next two days ahead of the runoff election's early voting. On Friday, May 11th, Overstreet will host a meet and greet on the Amarillo College Washington Street Campus at 6pm. Overstreet also has events planned for Saturday, May 12th at the Charles E. Warford Activity Center, Potter County Fire Station 3, and Bowie Middle School. Those meetings will take place at 10am, 1pm and 4pm, respectively.

Several local political figures and elected officials, including David Lovejoy, Alphonso Vaughn, Georgia Estrada, Leon Church, Jerry Morales and Scott Brumley will be at at least one of the meetings.

Overstreet is currently locked in a runoff for the position with Brown and Fortunato attorney Matthew Hand. Hand is also campaigning hard up to the runoff, sending out a new full-page mailer to Potter voters on Friday. The winner of that runoff will likely not face a challenger in November and will replace the retiring Judge Pamela Cook Sirmon.
