Why I'm In Favor Of Houston Hosting The 2020 DNC Convention
Their rationale to buttress their flimsy opposition to the city's bid for the 2020 DNC is that since Houston doesn't have a non discrimination ordinance, it shouldn't be hosting the convention.
The Houston 2020 DNC convention bid also has bipartisan support from local Republican legislators and former president George HW Bush, who wrote a letter to Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner supporting the bid.
I support the city of Houston going after the 2020 Democratic National Convention. As of this writing we are one of the three finalist cities for it in addition to Miami and Milwaukee.
Many of those people working in the Houston hospitality industry are Black and Latinx Houstonians who would benefit personally by the DNC being here.
It's way past time for the city of Houston to host the Democrats in our hometown again.
