Told My Buddy this morning that maybe I should have had breakfast with Dave Walden. He got the Friday morning Chron treatment today, I got it last week. Dave has a new gig - Senior Vice President for Public Policy at the Greater Houston Partnership. Don't know what Dave will be making, but the Partnership definitely picked one smart dude.
The Chron column listed a couple of Dave's more notorious incidents, hey, that's part of the Walden Legend. I met Walden during the '91 City of Houston mayoral race. Dave deserves his props for helping Bob Lanier get elected. During that campaign, Dave earned my respect. In '91, I bought into his strategy, he into mine - we won. When picking your "all-political" team - Dave is a first round pick.
