Every H-Town Latino political player ought to be embarrassed at the low Latino voter turnout in last Saturday’s run-off.  I know I am.  Many Latino precincts turned out in single digits.  I don’t want to hear excuses like the mayoral campaigns didn’t direct resources so our folks didn’t show up or we didn’t care.   We can obviously do a lot better.  In the meantime, mull over the following.
