“He said he didn’t have the heart for prosecution,’’ Waldrip said. “I asked him before he made a final decision on anything to think and consider something like civil work.”
Waldrip said he talked to Arledge because he has a good reputation as a good attorney.
“I know he is a very, hard working honest person who I know is kind of tired of running his own office and would kind of like to get into something different,” the District Attorney elect said. “With that knowledge I said, ‘Hey, we need to talk.’”
Waldrip denied there was any kind of under-the-table deal.
“She (Casteel) is afraid a bunch of wheeling and dealing is going on, but absolutely not,” Waldrip said. “Why is it upsetting to talk to very qualified people. I have talked to a dozen or so better attorneys who I feel are very competent and can handle the legal, complicated litigation needs of the county.”
The unanimous vote by Commissioners Court came a day after a workshop session on Wednesday turned into sharp exchanges between Casteel and Reimer over the firings of Assistant County Attorney Stephanie Smith-Burris and Yolanda D’Antuono, a
docket clerk with the County Attorney’s office.
The terminations take effect Jan. I.
Waldrip has drawn up two options for savings under a combined criminal district attorney’s office.
Under option one, $60,086 would be saved and the office would include the criminal district attorney, two investigators and support staff.
Under the second plan, $70,081 in savings would be achieved because one criminal investigator would be eliminated leaving six assistant attorneys, one investigator and support staff.
Casteel said she still wants to support the concept of consolidation, but that she is uneasy because of* what she perceives as backroom deals.
Reimer has said consolidation would save between $100,000 to $125,000 in indirect savings.
“I will support consolidation if it in fact is in the best interests of the county, saves money at the same time, provides the services we have been providing and doesn’t cause hardship on the staff,” Casteel said. “It appears the consolidation plan is being driven by a motive to make sure Bill Reimer has a job at the DA’s office after consolidation.”
After the workshop hearing on Wednesday, Waldrip said he would consider keeping Reimer as a criminal misdemeanor prosecutor

even on a temporary basis so that he could get Reimer’s experience and advice on running the District Attorney’s Office.
Reimer emphatically denied Casteel’s claim that he has already been hired as a prosecutor binder Waldrip.
“Dib has always made it clear after I resign (as county attorney) on September I, it is a new ball game,” Reimer said. “I will be only one in a group of many (to be considered for the job).
“If he wants me to stay on, I will stay on. But I would be on probation like anyone else. No deal has been cut. There has never been a deal.”
Reimer said he has many job alternatives and-options after he resigns as county attorney and that he will pursue them.
Waldrip said personality issues have gotten in the way of the issue of consolidation.
“People have allowed their personal feelings to impede their professional judgment,” Waldrip said.

Six congressional candidates gear up for run-off elections
HOUSTON (AP) — Here we go again: the red, white and blue yard signs, the blitz of radio and TV ads, the newspaper endorsements.
Campaign season ended last week in other parts of the country, but there’s still nearly a month to go in Southeast Texas.
Three House seats remain up for grabs because of a decision by a panel of federal judges to redraw district boundaries to correct
redistricting problems. Because no one candidate in those three races emerged from the court-ordered Nov. 5 special election with more than half the vote, the top two vote-getters advanced to a Dec. IO runoff.
No matter the outcome of those runoffs, the GOP will win at least one of the contested seats. Two Republicans are pitted against each other in an unusual race to succeed Republican Jack Fields.
