Chron: Judge Robert Eckels resigns

The Chronicle's Kristen Mack reports [UPDATE: see this thread] that Judge Robert Eckels has today confirmed speculation that he'd be stepping down:

County Judge Robert Eckels announced his resignation this afternoon at the annual State of the County speech

"Today, the time is right,'' Eckels said. "I had a friend who told me, 'You never become what you want to be while remaining where you are.' Harris County is moving forward, and it's time for me to do the same.''

Actually, no. The time would have been right before the last election, so voters could have picked your replacement.

Thanks for your years of service and solid conservative governance, but jeers for the way you decided to quit.
