    When i listen to this interview its easy for me to see that canidate david robinson would make a perfect DISTRICT COUNCIL member but i get concerned that he feels he is ready for an at large seat-its clear he doesnt venture outside of the west gray waugh area to often.Let me assure people of a few things,i love midtown/its great,lots of police and almost zero crime but i know it doesnt represent the majority of Houston Tx.In order to really have a feel for houston you need to have gone to work with people in sunnyside/city gas/north forest/tidwell and homestead/fry road and i 10 west/alief/southwest houston beechnut and gessner/west galleria area/hillcroft and voss/etc etc etc.I dont know if everybody is listening to the same interview as i am but as a responsible citizen of houston its clear to see that this canidate doesnt leave his own neirborhood often and in order to govern the people of the entire city i think you as a canidate should have at least reached out to other neirborhoods-canidate robinson has not.in closing, i was approached by a female politico at my starbucks whom i know well early in this race/she asked me to do a check on canidate robinson david and get back with her with all the details/i tried but canidate david robinson refused on one occassion specifically.I was down at city hall looking over the Updated canidate filings when in walks david robinson in the flesh/he rufused to answer any questions at that time/i asked his race manager to set something up/i never heard back from canidate robinson/The impressing i got was this-If you dont know canidate david robinson before the election-you wont know him afterwards as well,but dont take my word for it,just ask all the people in sunnyside/northforest/southwest/alief/i 10 west

    David received money to represent HEB while he was supposed to represent the residents as Neartown Association president. Given his past record of supporting big business over the residents, he will certainly make conditions better for businesses. Vote for him if you are business owner. After all, how do think he collected all that campaign money?
