Commentary is trying to figure out where women can make political gains, err win, in electoral politics this season – 2015. Teddy Schleifer wrote this past weekend about no women running for Mayor. Well what about the other city races and the HISD and HCC trustee positions?

I don’t see or hear of any women running for the open City Controller position, just a bunch of fellas.

In the City Council District races, G looks like a possibility if current HCC trustee Sandie Mullins makes the race. Then that opens up Mullins’ HCC trustee position. In the open District H seat, I don’t know if former HISD Trustee Diana Davila is still in the race.

There may be opportunities for women in the open City Council At-Large 1 and 4 positions.

There is nothing really open over at HCC.

At HISD, it doesn’t look like District 3 Trustee Manuel Rodriguez is running but I haven’t heard of any women stepping up. The HISD District 4 Trustee positon currently held by a female may open up and I understand a very strong female candidate is ready to run.

So that’s it for 2015. And I mean that’s it!

This past season, ‘Stros rookie George Springer had 20 dingers. Name the rookie with the most dingers this past season in MLB?

In case I forget, Happy Valentine’s Day Alabama!

Jose Abreu of the White Sox had 36 dinger this past season to lead all MLB rookies of course.

I don’t have anything from The Yard.
