It's Time. . .

To vote again.  If you remember my last post on voting, you'll know that I think it's very important to vote for not only national races, but local races as well.

On Nov. 3, Houston did not elect a mayor.  No one showed up to vote so no candidate won the majority. So we have a runoff race between Gene Locke and Annise Parker.  I've included some information I've found about them, but I encourage you to do your own research and PLEASE vote.



Early voting starts Mon, Nov. 30th and the election is Sat, Dec. 12th.

Gene Locke, who is running for mayor, is a lawyer who enjoys the backing of business leaders.

Annise Parker the Houston controller stands an even chance of becoming the first openly gay woman to be elected mayor of a major American city.
