Houston GLBT Caucus Endorsement Meeting Today

In a normal Houston civic election year, stuff usually doesn't start heating up politically until September around Labor Day   

But this isn't a normal election year.   After winning her three allotted two year terms, Mayor Annise Parker will have to vacate the chair in January, and there are 6 declared candidates who have jumped into the race.

There are also peeps running to either replace term limited council members or challenge sitting ones. 

With HERO no thanks to the partisan Texas Supreme Court being forced onto the ballot, we will have to decide who will be the best candidates in this 2015 election cycle are the ones best able to support the human rights of all Houstonians.

That process for who the Houston LGBT community will support starts with the Houston GLBT Political Caucus that kicking off as you read this.   There was so much interest in this endorsement meeting, they had to move it from the Montrose Center to the IBEW Union Hall,

It`s going to be an interesting afternoon of H-town political action .  And I'm in the middle of it this time because I'm a voting member of the Houston GLBT Political Caucus.

Tell y'all what transpired in a few hours.  I'm also armed with my tablet, and if I can do so, will drop some tweets or Facebook comments.
