It wasnt my performance, Herbst said. It was me.
Jess Herbst thought she had a good shot of becoming the first openly transgender mayor to be elected in Texas on Saturday.
Shed already served in the post for two years a first in its own right after the sudden death of the towns former mayor. And shed done things like re-establish the planning and zoning board and push for more law enforcement funding in the North Texas town of New Hope, population roughly 700.
But after a bruising campaign, she lost, coming in third in a contest of four, Herbst said in an interview Monday.
It wasnt my performance, said Herbst, 59. It was me.

Don’t click on the link. There are things you shouldn’t see.
Sanity returns to a small portion of Texas. At least it spared the citizenry a suicide while “:serving”.
Kinda like obama.
When elected - the voters are so “enlightened”
When defeated - the voters are all racists and homophobes
With the SAME voters!
“I said: Its a great place for LGBTQ, she recalled. But they left his comments out.
The letter, she added, killed me with constituents. This is a very conservative place. Three-quarters of the people are regular Sunday churchgoers.
Freaks calling on other fags to move in their conservative place. Nope. That aint gonna go well.
He was never elected Mayor, but rather became Mayor after the previous one died of a heart attack.
Good heavens! That’s an ugly ...................... whatever..................
it was in the process of becoming a woman unbeknownst to Prosper residents when this happened. Surprise!!
This is how democracy works, sir.
Whoops.... not Prosper. New Hope.
Why, oh why didnt I follow your advice?!?! Sob!!!
And shed done things like re-establish the planning and zoning board
Reason enough to vote against it right there.
It amazes me that (s)he was elected in the first place.
OK, that really stripped out my eyeballs.
Wasnt the Texas Democrat party chair or someone like that in The Party a man who’d murdered someone and then changed his name and sex?
This was the 1990s
Though he was big and strong
there was something wrong... (clap clap clap clap)
Deep in the Heart of Texas!
Now I’ve seen a few
but I never knew...
They grew that kind in Texas!
Usually that’s the kind you see...
Deep in the Heart of Greenwich Village!
When herding cattle,
he rode side saddle...
Deep in the heart of Texas!
Now: home on the range he was strange...
When a cowgirl would ask for a kiss...
She us-u-al-ly heard
a dis-cour-a-ging word...
(”Eeew! I’m... I’m not - not LIKE that, y’know?”)
clap clap clap clap
DEEP IN THE HEART OF TEXAS!
