Gorgeous What?

I have to believe that Adrian Garcia’s handlers told him after the Houston Area Women’s Chamber of Commerce Mayoral Forum yesterday that referring to his hosts as “gorgeous ladies” probably wasn’t a good idea.

The ‘Stros visit the Twins this weekend. Name the four Baseball Hall of Fame greats wearing Twins gear?

Mayoral candidate and Council Member Steve Costello put this out yesterday:

Council Member Costello did not support the Houston Organization of Public Employees’ new contract passed by City Council this morning. The new contract will cost between $37 million and $45 million over the next three fiscal years and includes an increase in minimum salaries to $12 per hour. Council Member Costello voiced concerns about committing the city to increased salaries when facing layoffs due to the $126 million deficit projected in the next fiscal year.

“I support increasing the salaries of our lowest paid city workers, and I would have supported a one-year deal to accomplish this. However, I simply cannot support the additional raises included in the contract when the city of Houston faces deficits of over $100 million each year for the next five years,” Costello said.

Costello has also come out in support of hiring 1,500 new police officers.

You do the math because I can’t.

Tonight’s Mayoral Candidate Forum is hosted by Super Neighborhood #6 and the Old Acres Homes Citizen Council. I am predicting that Ben Hall will go aggressive on Rep. Sylvester Turner. The setting plays to Ben’s style if you know what I mean.

Bert Blyleven, Rod Carew, Harmon Killebrew, and Kirby Puckett of course are in the Hall of Fame wearing Twins gear.
