Locke Adds New Members To The Campaign Team

2 on The Beat told you last week that Mayoral Candidate Gene Locke and veteran fundraiser Sue Walden severed their working relationship.

This week Locke is moving quickly to build his team with the key players he will need leading up to November’s election.

Herb Butrum has signed on as Finance Director; Priscilla Villarreal as Social Media Director; Grace Rodriguez as Social Media Strategist and Asian American Outreach; and Kristin Clarke as Volunteer Coordinator.

Butrum was Houston Mayor Bill White’s finance  director for the past six years, and according to the Locke campaign, Butrum  made history in 2003 by raising the most money – $8.4 million – ever raised in a campaign for mayor of Houston.

In a campaign statement sent to local media, Locke says, “I am pleased to add these talented and experienced professionals to our team. Along with our enthusiastic volunteers and supporters, we are building a diverse, nonpartisan coalition.”
