Who Are The Good Democrats Tossed Overboard By John Whitmire, Mario Gallegos & Carol Alvarado In Houston’s Council District G?
A few days ago I received a political mailing telling me that Democratic Texas State Senators John Whitmire and Mario Gallegos support Oliver Pennington to represent me in Houston’s Council District G. Not only that—Texas State Representative Carol Alvarado supports Mr. Pennington as well.
The thing is that Mr Pennington is a Republican.
If you call Mr. Pennington’s campaign office they will tell you the same thing—Mr. Pennington is a Republican.
There are two good Democrats running in District G. Either merits your consideration on Election Day.
They merit your consideration despite the fact they have tossed overboard by some well-known Democrats.
Richard Sedita is a registered nurse case manager who was a delegate for Hillary Clinton at the 2008 Texas Democratic convention.
If you live in District G, or even if you don’t, please take the time to look at the campaign web homes of both these candidates. They both seem like decent people with lifelong commitments of service to others.
District G is likely to vote Republican for City Council in 2009. Though who can know for sure until the votes are counted?
There will be plenty of time for Mr. Whitmire, Mr. Gallegos and Ms. Alvarado to work with Mr. Pennington if he is elected.
Loyal Democrats like Mr. Handy and Mr. Sedita merit better from Democratic party leaders.
Now is the time for these elected officials to back one of the two good Democrats in this race.
