Who Are The Democrats In Houston Council Runoffs?—Vote Out Of Respect For Yourself And Respect For The Man In The Picture

Today is Election Day for the final four unresolved Houston City Council spots on the 2011 ballot.

Please consider voting. Turnout in this election is likely to be  3% or 4%.

I’m not going to tell you that these are Earth-shattering elections on the ballot today or that anybody running is a consistent champion of progressive values.

Vote today out of your best conception of yourself.

The Democrats in the At-Large races are Kristi Thibaut in #2 and Jolanda Jones in #5. Both candidates are Democrats in District B. Neither candidate is a Democrat in District A.

Below is a picture of a gentleman who is always out promoting Democratic candidates at the West Gray Multiservice Center for early voting. I took this picture when I voted a few days ago.

It was a cold miserable day–but that man was there as always supporting his candidates. If he can sit out in the cold for hours, you can go out and vote.

Vote for the candidates of your choice tomorrow, and then give them hard time as an involved citizen after Election Day.

  1. It really made me smile when they announced on ABC13 that Jolanda lost. I mean, really really made me smile. 🙂 I can’t wait for the Republican redistricting map to go through unscathed.
