State Rep. Will Hartnett, R-Dallas, was heralded by Texas Monthly in their Best and Worst Legislators list as a lawmaker who is” giving lawyers a good name and spoiling the fun.”
TexMo had this to say about District 114’s Hartnett, who bested Democratic Party challenger John Wellik in November:
Hartnett is a quiet, unassuming sort who goes about his business, session after session, with little fanfare, passing bills on such scintillating subjects as notices of lis pendens and power of attorney. Then along comes a situation where the House needs a sharp legal mind who can rise above politics and carry out the law with impartiality and integrity. When that occurs, Hartnett is first on the list of candidates.
That’s pretty high praise. Discuss?
