Texas Gubernatorial Candidate Lupe Valdez Pays Overdue Property Taxes On Time

The Houston Chronicle reports that officials from her campaign said she was paying in monthly installments because she could not afford to pay the total amounts

Texas gubernatorial candidate Lupe Valdez, who in this file photo appears at the event her campaign held the day she won the Democratic primary election back in May, has paid off her delinquent property taxes, according to a news report published by the Houston Chronicle.

Texas’ Democratic gubernatorial candidate Lupe Valdez has finished paying off her delinquent property taxes, just ahead of a July 1 deadline, the Houston Chronicle has reported.

According to the Chronicle, tax records from Dallas and Ellis counties showed this Monday, July 2, that Valdez made her final $7,000 in payments in back taxes on properties she owns in Oak Cliff, her neighborhood in South Dallas on June 12.

Valdez was originally listed as delinquent for more than $21,758 in 2017 taxes due January 31 on seven properties she owns in the counties of Dallas and Ellis.

The Chronicle detailed that officials from Valdez’s campaign had said she was paying in monthly installments because she could not afford to pay the total amounts. According to the officials, that is the same thing she had done in past years.

Valdez, who was Dallas County’s sheriff, is running against Republican incumbent Greg Abbott.
