Analysis

  • Landgraf announced in October 2014 that he would step down as chief counsel for the Medical Center Health System of Odessa. His employment at the taxpayer-supported hospital had emerged as an issue during a primary campaign amid questions over whether he could take office while holding his position with the hospital.
