Yesterday was the second day to Vote Early.  Here is a comparison after Day 2 in 2009.

West Gray (973 in 2009/ 582 in 2011)

Moody Park (194 in 2009/ 105 in 2011)

Acres Homes (256 in 2009/ 168 in 2011)

Ripley (113 in 2009/ 104 in 2011)

HCCS (90 in 2009/ 128 in 2011)

Bayland (587 in 2009/ 315 in 2011)

Mendenhall (575 in 2009/ 339 in 2011)

HCCS is the only one of the seven that saw an increase after Day 2.  Ripley is trying to keep up with 2009.

Most other City Early Voting locations saw decreases.  I wonder what is going on at HCCS and Ripley.

Maybe it’s the CM James Rodriguez campaign.   Maybe it is being helped out by the HISD Trustee District III challenge by Ramiro Fonseca.  You got a better idea?

If this keeps up, I think folks would be wise to step up and participate in “The Decisive Latino Force 2012” that CM James Rodriguez and SVREP are heading up.  “The Decisive Latino Force 2012” gathering is Wednesday, November 16.  Be there! 

I saw this today from the Statesman’s Jason Embry’s First Reading:

Happy birthday to Rep. Carol Alvarado!

Yesterday Commentary mentioned the 2002 World Serious between the Giants and Angels.  Who was the 2002 World Serious MVP?

Commentary will be watching the H-Town City Council meeting today on the tube to see what is said about Kroger and the 380 agreement. I don’t have a problem with the 380s if they are used right.  I just want the 380 businesses to be good actors.  Kroger needs to do a better job of taking care of their stores like the dump on Cullen and Polk.  Check out the Chron story here on today’s action. 

The Harris County DA needs to wake up and realize that it is 2011.  Let the Grand Jury do its thing.  Now they want a Special Prosecutor.  Don’t stand in their way. Check out the Chron story here.

The H-Town City Attorney sent out a letter yesterday to candidates laying down the law on how to place your signs on right-of-way next to the polling places.  Oh brother, err big brother!  Commentary has been involved in a lot of campaigns before and this really has never been a problem or issue.   I just hope that campaigns remember that the City Attorney’s letter only addresses E-Day and EV-Day signs on right-of-way and not on property.   I’m thinking that maybe the City Attorney is feeling left out of this election and feels like he has to get in to the game.

Gil Ramirez is the fella that is suing HISD and HISD Trustee Larry Marshall on those contract messes that turned up that $25,000 omitted contribution.  Ramirez went to the H-Town City Council meeting yesterday to complain about City inspectors wanting to “bring him down.”  Ramirez doesn’t like the way the inspectors are hassling him in a development he’s got in the works.  It looks like he thinks he’s being picked on.  So he’s in a two front war right now.  He’s got one with HISD and another one with the City.  Good luck!

Former Angels third baseman Troy Glaus of course was the 2002 World Serious MVP because he had a .385 batting average, 3 dingers, and 8 RBIs.

Kroger sponsored the gym bags that were handed out at The Yard this past season and that’s all I have.
