A Low Key Filing Day For Mayoral Candidate Peter Brown

Houston City Council Member Peter Brown is filing paperwork and paying the required fee today to get his name on the ballot as a candidate for Mayor of Houston.

Unlike  Annise Parker and Gene Locke, Brown is not holding a big rally with his supporters on the steps of   city hall. 

He isn’t asking members of the few organizations that endorsed him to applaud and hold campaign signs in front of the TV news cameras.

I spoke with Brown campaign manager Lucinda Guinn, who says that “Brown wants to focus on the substantive issues facing the city.” 

Guinn was referring to the questions surrounding the $25 Million to $103 Million shortfall.

This morning the fiscal affairs committee is being briefed on the problem.

Of course, Brown is the first major mayoral candidate to launch a TV political ad.  Last week Brown told 2 On The Beat that he plans to keep a heavy presence on TV, and continue to reach out directly to the voters.
