HISD Trustee Faces The Music Over Homophobic Campaign Flier

I mentioned that HISD's Thursday's night board meeting was going to be a contentious and packed one at the Hattie Mae White Educational Support Building, and it was.

The board room had a standing room only crowd on the inside, protesters holding signs and chanting outside and our local H-town media recording it all.

The crowd was there to take HISD board Trustee Manuel Rodriguez to task over a homophobic campaign flier he aimed at his opponent Ramiro Fonseca in the extremely tight Position III race that he won reelection to by a mere 24 seats.
