Let the Campaign Begin

Over the next few weeks you can expect to hear  announcements from the candidates who are planning to run for either Mayor of  Houston or City Council.

The general election is in November, but in the meantime people are lining up to campaign in the special election for the city council District H .

Election day is Saturday, May 9, 2009.

 District H was held by newly elected  Harris County Sheriff Adrian Garcia, and is historically considered a “safe Hispanic” seat, but there are plenty of candidates, including some none Hispanics  lining up to run.  Early  names include city hall aide Maverick Welsh.

Other potential candidates  mentioned include  Hugo Mojica,

along with Houston Police Department employee Ed Gonzalez and Realtor Karen Derr. (I don’t have their photos – but I’m working on it)

Please leave a comment if you know of   any other candidates who plan to jump in the race.
