Commentary was wrong again. It looks like the $2 Million Houston City Council At-Large Special Election will be held on May 12, 2007 - if there is an election.
$2 million is a lot of vaccinations. Does the Houston City Council Woman really have to resign? We all know the Special Election Guv Dude called was a flea flicker play that didn't work. The play has been called a farce. She can say, you know what, I'm not going to make the taxpayers cough up $2 mil, just for me to serve for 45 days or so when Congress probably won't even meet. National security won't be threatened. I'll just hang around city hall for another year and bang away at paperless folks and vote against big budgets and get ready for '08.
Does the law say you gotta take office if you win a special? Does someone chase you down and force you to take the oath of office. She'll be forever criticized for making the city spend $2 million to elect someone that will only serve five or six months. Meanwhile, the jockeying continues in a column penned by My PR Agent in today's Chron.
