Dear Friends,

We need to elect a successor to our state house district who will work with me on school finance, Harvey recovery, and affordable health care for all families.

Please take the time and make a plan to vote early over the next couple of days. Make sure you take your family and remind your friends and co-workers to also vote. In this special election, your vote will certainly count. For more information visit https://www.harrisvotes.com/.  

Thank you and go vote.

Tonight, I accepted the Antonio Villaraigosa Leadership Award with pride and humility. Thanks to the @LLN_USA for honoring me as a mayor from a city with a significant Latino population who has exhibited an outstanding commitment to bringing diverse communities together.

44.5% of the H-Town population is more than significant. We are the largest population group. Last thing Commentary wants to do is argue with H-Town City Hall.

I don’t have much to say about the HISD Board and the TEA investigation on meetings.

I also don’t have much to say about our local member of Congress taking some #MeTooMovement hits.

Albert Pujols of course has 1,982 RBIs and needs 18 for the 2,000 club.

Dallas Keuchel and Marwin Gonzalez are still free agents. Something fishy is going on here.
