Pitching In

The Chron Columnist took a swipe at H-Townís Mayor today for serving as a pitchman for a Downtown high rise development. Check it out. Ouch! I wonder if the fancy pad comes with some sort of Mayoral Guarantee which is kind of better than a lifetime warranty. I wonder if the Mayoral Guarantee trumps the Lone Star Stateís Residential Commission or whatever it is called.

I wonder if the H-Town Mayor is opening the door for other electeds to pitch some private deal. Iím sure there are entrepreneurs out there mulling over the possibility of getting a key elected official to pitch for their deal. I wonder what they have in mind for The Dean to pitch. How about Balls of Holly? I wonder what H-Town CM James could advance. How about Annise or CM Brown or CM Jolanda?

Speaking of, the H-Town City Council will officially call for a special election today for Council District H. I gotta hurry up and get Diamond and Dinger registered to vote.

Guv Dude made an appeal to his GOPís right wing yesterday and forgot to give a State of the State address. What else is new?

A number of Latino leaders are meeting this Saturday to hear from some of the H-Town Mayoral candidates. Thatís a real good thing. I hope they have a good discussion.

The Houston Area Latino Summit is still taking shape. A tentative agenda has now been posted. Latinos/Latinas are registering. The moderators are set. All but one of the presenters are confirmed.
