He Wants To Be Mayor Of Houston

Add another name to the ballot in the race for Mayor of  Houston.

57 year old Plumbing Contractor Ralph Ullrich says he plans to  take another stab at running for office.

Ullrich filed right before the 5 p.m. deadline, officially launching his  fifth campaign for the top job at city hall. 


I met the perennial candidate Tuesday afternoon inside Houston city hall.  

Ullrich told me he ran ran against former successful mayoral candidates Bob Lanier in 93, Lee Brown in 2001, and  Bill White in 2003 and 2005.

Filing to get on the ballot isn’t cheap – It costs $1,250. 

 I didn’t want to be rude, but I asked Ullrich if he had better things to do with that kind of money.

“I see needs in the community that aren’t being addressed by other candidates,”  Ullrich responded.

If elected,  Ullrich plans to push for the creation of a mental health court.

“Too many people are in jails, and where they really need to be is in a mental hospital, or getting treatment as an outpatient,” said Ullrich. ”

Makes sense to me!
