Amy Price Running As A Green For Houston City Council in 2011

I met this morning with Amy Price.

Amy is going to run a Green for an at-large seat on Houston City Council in 2011.

She is still working out the details, but what I am certain of is that she is going to conduct a solid and hard hitting campaign effort.

Folks in Houston merit more options than so-called Democrats running for city office who are afraid to even say that they are Democrats.

As a Democrat or progressive following Houston politics, if you can’t afford the endless fundraisers, if candidates don’t call themselves Democrats and they take Republican money, if Democrats do nothing to address the dismal turnout we see year after year in city elections—-Then why not get involved on your own and work and fight for your liberal and progressive values no matter what?

The work of freedom is up to each of us.

There is an Amy Price For Houston City Council page that you can like on Facebook and there will be more to come in the weeks ahead.
