The Chron E-Board continues to roll out their endorsements. Today’s nods go to At-Large 1 CM Stephen Costello and former CM Brenda Stardig in District A. Commentary is not surprised.
The most interesting part of the Costello endorsement is this:
Costello readily acknowledges he plans to run for mayor following his council service. We would recommend that the best way for someone in his position to reach the big office on the third floor at City Hall is to be the best at-large councilman he can be if elected to a third two-year term.
I guess CM Costello becomes the first declared 2015 Mayoral candidate. He better start voting in Dem Party primaries.
San Luis punched their ticket to the NLCS last night. Last year San Luis retired the Numero 10. Who wore the Numero 10?
Here is another exercise in exercising. RNC Hispanics and AG Abbott and former State Rep. Errant Pena are putting together a GOP outreach to Latinos voters – YAWN!
It is about issues. It is about immigration reform. It is about health care. It is about voting rights.
Commentary received a Zeph Capo for HCC mailer yesterday.
Forty years ago today Vice-President Spiro Agnew resigned.
Tony La Russa of course wore the Numero 10 for San Luis.
Here is from the ‘Stros website:
Astros owner Jim Crane said last week the team would be in position to increase its payroll next year, and on Tuesday he provided the first indication of just how much money could be spent on players in 2014.
Crane said the Astros’ payroll, which was at about $13 million to end the season, could be between $50-60 million next year regardless of whether the club is able to settle its dispute with television partner Comcast.
We will see.
