At the meeting the membership voted to endorse the following candidates: Kara DeRocha for HISD School Board Trustee – District V Holly Maria Flynn Vilaseca for HISD School Board Trustee – District VI Anne Sung for HISD School Board Trustee – […]

The HCC lineup

When I published the July finance reports for HCC trustees, I noted that the only reports available were for incumbents. There was no way to tell who might be challenging the two trustees up for re-election (Carolyn Evans-Shabazz and Robert Glaser) or who might be vying to succeed the convicted Chris Oliver.

A look ahead to Houston’s 2017 elections

Endorsement watch: For Christie

The Chron endorses freshman CM Jack Christie in At Large #5. At-Large council members act as a sort of minister without portfolio. While district council members focus on constituent issues, at-large members can set their own agendas. The previous incumbent for At-Large Position 5, Jolanda Jones, said her goal was to serve as “the voice […]
