Pam Holm Adds A New Co-Chair To Campaign

I personally don’t know anything about the working relationship or friendship between City of  Houston controller candidate Pam Holm and Pastor D.Z. Cofield, of Good Hope Missionary Baptist Church.

However, I was surprised to hear today that Pastor Cofield has joined Holm’s campaign as a co-chair. 

Is it simply designed to draw some African American votes away from Controller Candidate Ronald Green?

 I am publishing the news release that I received.  I will try to dig a little deeper and find out the significance of this annoucement, and report back to you.


What a terrific day for our campaign!

Earlier this morning, I announced Dr. D. Z. Cofield will join my campaign for Houston Controller as co-chairman.

We are thrilled to welcome Dr. Cofield. Having his support is an honor, and together we are building a coalition of voters who want Houston to have a Controller who is a watchdog over city spending.

As you may know, Dr. Cofield is the Senior Pastor at Good Hope Missionary Baptist Church. As a preacher, author and community stakeholder, Dr. Cofield brings our campaign a perspective on coalition building through public service.

Here is a gracious statement Dr. Cofield made earlier today at our announcement at City Hall:

The City Controller must be someone who represents what is in the best interests of all Houstonians, making sure people are treated fairly at every level. Pam Holm’s desire to build a better Houston that is inclusive, and not exclusive, is evidenced by her not simply asking for my endorsement, but in asking me to be part of her campaign leadership team, Cofield said. I am honored and humbled to serve as Co-Chair of Pam Holm’s campaign to continue her public service to the city of Houston. In accepting this invitation I will do all I can to help her make Houston even better.

Dr. Cofield will be teaming with our three campaign co-chairs Susan Kellner, Fred Zeidman and Lee Hogan. This leadership team gives me great pride because our campaign has a strong team of leaders who reflect the best of Houston.

Please share this wonderful news with your friends by visiting our campaign Web site, or our Facebook page,

Thank you
