Texas Democratic gubernatorial candidate and former Dallas County Sheriff Lupe Valdez is blaming sitting Gov. Greg Abbott for the fact that she owes some $12,000 in overdue property taxes. Valdez, in a statement delivered by campaign spokesman Juan Bautista Dominguez, claimed that Abbott is responsible for the high property taxes in Texas.

“As we’ve been saying all along, under Greg Abbott’s failed leadership, property taxes are unpredictable and burdensome for Texans everywhere, including Sheriff Lupe Valdez. Sheriff Valdez has an agreement with the counties to payoff 2017 property taxes and plans to do so entirely in the coming months.”

The article goes on to state the following:

According to online property tax records reviewed by, Valdez owns or has an interest in some 15 properties, and has taxes that are considered delinquent on seven of them. County records show that Valdez has been making payments, but if they are not paid in full by July, the state will send them to a collection agency.

In addition, the Houston Chronicle noted that Valdez failed to provide several details on her official financial disclosure form going into her campaign.
