I’m Voting For Bill White For Governor Of Texas—Blogger Round-Up

At the bottom of this post is the most recent weekly round-up of the Texas Progressive Alliance. The TPA is a confederation of the best political bloggers in Texas.

With the round-up this week, is a picture I ripped off from the Bill White for Governor Facebook page.

The Governor Perry supporters with that sign might be better off in one of our public schools in Texas.

I’m voting for Bill White in the Democratic primary for Governor of Texas and I will vote for him in the general election.

Mr. White, a former Mayor of Houston, is the Democrat most able to win the Governor’s office in 2010.

I believe Mayor White has a clear sense of the problems of poverty, poor educational achievement, and no health insurance that afflict many Texans.

This is state with millions of people, and the problems we have are so bad and impact so many people that we just have to get Rick Perry out of the Governor’s chair before he does any more harm.

We can’t go on talking about secession and refusing federal money when people who need help in Texas go unheard.

We need to help make sure that hard working people in our state can get health benefits and that they have a chance to get a decent education.

Mayor White is shown in this Houston Chronicle poll to be only six points behind Governor Perry with 13% undecided. This is a race that can be won.

Here is the web home for White Campaign.
