Speculation swirling fast around the Harris County Judge's campaign in 2018. Who's going to run for the highest office in Harris County in 2018 ? Will it be former Harris County Sheriff Adrian Garcia (D), former Houston Mayor Annise Parker (D), Harris County Commissioner Precinct 2 Jake Morman [R], former Houston City Councilman At-Large 4 C.O. Bradford (D) ? Or will current Harris County Judge Ed Emmett [R] surprise everyone & seek reelection to 3rd full 4-year term ? Give your potential candidates
With the clock ticking down on 3-term Houston Mayor Annise Parker (D)'s administration in which she's got 5 months left, there's discussion on whether she'll run for political office again in the future. We can pretty guess that her plans is in the Executive Branch & she's also considering running for statewide or countywide office in the next election cycle. She's flatly REFUSED to run for Congress-period! http://www.houstonpublicmedia.org/news/will-houston-mayor-annise-parker-run-for-office-again/ Ladies & Gentlemen, I want everyone to bring their input on which political office do you see her running for? A. Harris County Judge in 2018 B. TX Railroad Commissioner in 2016 C. TX Lieutenant Governor in 2018 D. United States Senator in 2018 (Would be fun to watch Cruz-Parker showdown) E. TX Governor in 2018
Houston is now one step closer to being a "zoned" city... http://texasleftist.blogspot.com/2013/04/houston-city-council-passes-chapter-42.html Ready or not, here we come... After six years of vigorous debate, the Houston City Council has voted to further increase the city's density. Chapter 42 passed Council on a vote of 14 to 3. The ordinance changes development rules in the hopes of making the city more competitive with the suburbs. And given the extreme interest by area developers, it will likely be successful in that regard. This was far from an easy vote, as virtually every Council Member had qualms with the ordinance. As the Mayor said, this vote ends the separation between inner loop and outer loop areas. "The city of Houston now has one development code." And it has been updated to reflect a much more 'urban' reality....
This was mentioned in another thread but it definitely deserves it's own thread. The plans to reconstruct Bagby to help make Midtown a more pedestrian friendly area are being scrapped. http://innerlooped.com/1840/very-bad-news-for-bagby/#comments The Director of Public Works, Daniel Kreuger wants to make Bagby a three lane street to help make cars move faster. This will obviously mean there will be less room for expanded sidewalks and improved landscaping that were originally planned. Commuters interests' are once again being accomodated instead of the interests of residents, pedestrians, and small businesses. To me, it makes no sense since Bagby has always been a fast moving street in the first place. I guess they want cars to drive 45 mph instead of 35? Apparently, the fight is not yet over. http://innerlooped.com/1851/bagby-street-hoopla/ If you feel as angry as I do, please email the mayor, Annise Parker and the director of public works and tell them how you feel about making Bagby a 3 lane road before it's too late.
