Harris County AFL-CIO Endorsements—Including Terrible Selection Of Edwards Over Miles

As I never weary of telling folks, I was in 1997 a Stonewall Cincinnati and Hamilton County, Ohio AFL-CIO endorsed candidate for the Cincinnati Board of Education.

Here in Houston and Harris County, the local GLBT endorsements get some notice. However, the Harris County AFL-CIO Labor Council endorsements get less play.

So–in appreciation for the  endorsement in Cincinnati 13 years ago, here are the Harris County AFL-CIO endorsements.

Please note however, that the pick in Texas State House District 146 is a terrible pick. Mr. Edwards has often sided with the most conservative and reactionary of Republicans in Austin. Borris Miles is the best selection in 146.
