Name the MLB club with the highest payroll during the 2017 season?

Finally! Commentary is talking about the Chron finally giving the #TXHD148SpecialRunoffElection a mention today. Here I part of what they said:

In Harris County, meanwhile, Democrat and former HISD trustee Anna Eastman and Republican power engineer Luis LaRotta are vying to replace former state Rep. Jessica Farrar, a Houston Democrat who represented House District 148 until she stepped down last year. The district is generally viewed as a safe seat for Democrats, though Republicans see an opportunity given special elections’ typically low turnouts.

Our campaign ran across a voting location and our opponent’s signs had been knocked down and ours were still standing. We put our opponent’s signs back up. We didn’t want to deal with a potential sign war this morning.

Here is an interesting local political fact Commentary ran across recently. Three Houston City Council district members reside in Texas House District 148. CMs Karla Cisneros, Abbie Kamin and Amy Peck. Now you know.

The Los Angeles Dodgers had a payroll of around $240 million in 2017, the year the Astros won the World Series, of course. The Astros payroll that year was around $150 million. Having a payroll of $90 million higher isn’t called cheating. It is called MLB baseball economics. Got it?

If you live in HD 148, go vote today! Please!
