RPCV Kinky Friedman Runs This Time For Agriculture Commissioner

Kinky Friedman (Borneo 1967-69) will not run again for governor of Texas. Instead Kinky will seek, as a Democratic,  the position of agriculture commissioner. In his last governor’s race, he finished fourth, running as an independent. Kinky has met with both Democratic gubernatorial candidates and has been stating his positions as the agriculture commissioner. For example, he will be for promoting more food from local producers in school cafeterias and putting animals rescue facilities in countries across Texas.

  • Too bad he is not running for Governor again. I believe the last time he ran, he participated in some of the debates, poking fun at the pomposity, ideological rigidity and just plain stupidity of the other candidates. He also proposed appointing Willie Nelson to some position in his administration, which certainly would have helped Texas’ image in the rest of the U.S. The incumbent Governor has openly talked about secession.

    Kinky will have big boots to fill. One of the former Commissioners of Agriculture is Jim Hightower who publishes a great liberal activist newsletter- The Hightower Lowdown. I strongly recommend the newsletter and hopefully Kinky will sit down with Hightower, share a cigar with him and pick his brain.
