I Hope That Houston Mayoral Candidate Ben Hall’s Misspelling Of The Word “Government” Is Not Indicative Of A Hostility To The Common Good
When I have my new website up and running this April, one part of the effort will be a blog about the 2013 Houston municipal elections.
Every so often along the way to that new site, I’ll have updates here at Texas Liberal.
Attorney Ben Hall is running for Mayor of Houston against incumbent Annise Parker.
Above you see Mr. Hall discussing his agenda of education and safety for the people of Houston.
Who could argue with any of that?
While we all make mistakes—I make them all the time—I do note that Mr. Hall has above misspelled the word “government.”
I hope this misspelling is not indicative of an aversion of some kind on the part of Mr. Hall to the helpful role that government can play in the lives of our citizens.
If I were simply basing my vote on the entertainment value of the candidates, I would have to give Mr. Hall the early edge.
However, what I’ll be looking for in the months ahead is any real sign that a liberal could support Mayor Parker, Mr. Hall, or some other candidate who makes the race.
Election Day 2013 is Tuesday, November 5th.
(Blogger’s Note 2/14/13–In the first version of this post that I put on-line, I made the exact same error as did Mr. Hall. A difference though is that I am not running for anything. We are all flawed. The good news is that Mr. Hall has many months ahead to show that he offers something to liberal voters in Houston.)
