I guess State Rep Sylvester Turner wasn’t up for the first major hurdle of the political season – the Houston Area Latino Summit Mayoral Debate on Saturday, July 18, 2009. He would have definitely made the debate and race more interesting. That’s OK though, the Final Four to date are going to shake things up some I predict.

As of July 1, we still don’t have a clear front runner. Stay tuned!

We will also get an idea on how the other contested H-Town Council races are shaping up in terms of fundraising and spending.

As soon as I get through with my civic duty, I’ll be putting out a take on who’s running so candidates/consultants, please send me your info – thank.
