In a Facebook post criticizing Montgomery County Judge Mark Keough's response to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Eric Yollick, a candidate for the 457th District Court, seemed to reference the alleged egging incident for which Keough filed a complaint about.
"I privately chided him for his worst mistake on March 27, 2020. It was an egg between friends, and I never brought my actions to the public's attention," Yollick said. "I wasn't trying to embarrass Mark, but rather I wanted to bring an important point to his attention with an action since words hadn't been effective."
Yollick said his "action" may have contributed to Keough's reopening of the county.
"I do not regret that decision nor am I in the least bit remorseful about it. You don't ask for forgiveness or repent when you have done the right thing," Yollick said.
Community Impact Newspaper has reached out to Yollick and Keough for comment.
Montgomery County Judge Mark Keough has filed a complaint against Eric Yollick involving an egging of his car, according to the Conroe Police Department. CPD Sgt. Jeff Smith said the department is currently investigating the incident.
“Mr. Yollick has been in touch with investigators and is being cooperative,” Smith said.
Jason Millsaps, Keough’s chief of staff, said Keough declined to comment on the investigation. Yollick did not respond to requests for comment.
Yollick is currently a candidate for the 457th District Court. A runoff election between Yollick and Vince Santini will be held July 14.
