A lot of folks have already voted by mail and Early Voting in Person begins on Wednesday and the final results will be announced in 12 days.

Who was the starting shortstop for the AL All Stars this past summer at Great American?

Karla Cisneros’ opponent has gone negative in mail. Today the Chron E-Board endorsed again in the District H council race. I am pretty sure that Karla’s opponent is not thrilled with what the E-Board said. Check this:

District H: Karla Cisneros has served as a teacher and board member for the Houston Independent School District. From those positions she has seen how Houston has become a city of haves and have-nots. Cisneros wants City Hall to step up and help kids and families to succeed.

While she expresses an idealistic agenda, Cisneros is able to find solutions in realistic policy. The L-shaped District H covers the single-family neighborhoods of Near Northside and Woodland Heights, and the townhouse rows of the East End. Longtime residents are seeing their communities change, and the right councilwoman can mean the difference between healthy growth or losing a part of our city.

In this runoff, Cisneros faces Jason Cisneroz, who worked for the term-limited incumbent, Councilman Ed Gonzalez. There’s no doubt that Cisneroz cares about his community, but he lacks the depth of knowledge that voters should expect from a City Hall staffer.

Like I said, they are probably not happy about today’s E-Board take.

Here is from Saturday’s E-Board thumbs ups and downs:

[Down] Don’t be surprised if you see a few dirty tricks in the run-up to the mayoral runoff – early voting starts Wednesday – but we didn’t expect City Hall to step into the fray. Last week, Sylvester Turner’s campaign promoted a city report that ever so conveniently bashes an infrastructure funding plan proposed by Bill King. The report – published by the city of Houston Department of Finance – was done at the request of Mayor Annise Parker.

Alcides Escobar of the Royals was the AL All Star starting shortstop of course. In 148 games he batted .257 with 3 dingers and 47 RBIs.

In 99 games, Carlos Correa batted .279 with 22 dingers and 68 RBIs.
