Karla Cisneros was endorsed this week by the Houston Professional Fire Fighters Association, IAFF Local 341. Nice!

On Opening Day this past April 6 against Cleveland at The Yard, who batted seventh in the starting lineup for the ‘Stros?

I saw this tweet yesterday:

Sylvester Turner Retweeted

Tea Party uncle said he’s voting for @SylvesterTurner because he’s “the only guy who can actually balance the budget.” #ThanksgivingMiracle

I am sure the usual suspects are putting out the welcome mat for this voter.

How about this that was put out a couple of days ago:

Houston business icon Jim “Mattress Mack” McIngvale of Gallery Furniture has endorsed businessman Bill King for mayor in a new TV ad to begin airing in the Houston market soon.

It looks like Steve Brown answered the Chron E-Board challenge to Fort Bend Dems. Here is from the Chron:

The bad week for state Rep. Ron Reynolds is getting worse. 

Steve Brown, the former chairman of the Fort Bend County Democrats, wrote on Twitter Wednesday that he will challenge Reynolds in the March primary. A formal announcement will be made after Thanksgiving, Brown wrote. 

The move comes two days after a Montgomery County jury sentenced Reynolds, 42, to up to one year in jail for barratry, or illegally soliciting clients for his law practice. The Missouri City Democrat was freed sometime after Tuesday afternoon on a $25,000 bond, but a judge has barred him from working as an attorney while he appeals his conviction. 

Texas law prohibits lawyers, among others, from soliciting clients for accident or disaster claims until at least 30 days after an incident. The rule is meant to protect victims from fraud and swarms of attorneys. 

Despite his legal problems, Reynolds is seeking a fourth term representing House District 27, which covers parts of Houston, Missouri City, Sugar Land, Pearland, Stafford, Fresno and Arcola. 

Brown has worked on campaigns and in legislative offices of several public officials, including U.S. Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee, D-Houston; state Rep. Sylvester Turner, D-Houston; and former U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk. In 2014, he lost to Republican Ryan Sitton for a seat on the Texas Railroad Commission, the state agency that regulates the oil and gas industry.

I sure hope Fort Bend Dem Party activists and donor folks get behind Steve on this one.

Jed Lowrie of course batted seventh for the ‘Stros this past Opening Day. He was traded away a few days ago and he kind of was not too happy because he signed a three-year deal with us last year and he lives in H-Town.  When he signed with us he should have known that Carlos Correa would soon be joining the team. Hey, that’s life in MLB.
