  1. Good afternoon everyone in the HAIF Family. I'm assuming some of y'all have heard about this: https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2019/03/27/this-is-not-mexico-texas-official-criticizes-judge-speaking-spanish https://www.newsweek.com/speak-english-not-mexico-county-commissioner-tells-county-judge-texas-1376411 Want to know everyone's thoughts on this controversy.
  2. FOX 26 KRIV-TV Houston political reporter Greg Groogan reported that former Harris County Sheriff Adrian Garcia (D) will run for Harris County Commissioner, Precinct 2 in the upcoming 2018 elections against 2-term incumbent Jake Morman [R]. How do y'all believe Garcia will fare against Morman ?
  3. With back-to-back losses for Houston Mayor (2015: where he didn't make the runoff) & getting trounced by longtime incumbent US Rep. Gene Green (D-TX) in the TX 29th US House Dem primary last week, there's very few political allies & friends for former Harris County Sheriff Adrian Garcia (D) these days. Now political speculation is swirling about Garcia's next move if he wants to continue his political career: whether he'll run for Harris County Judge or County Commissioner-Precinct 2 in 2018 or seek a seat in the TX House of Representatives or TX State Senate. http://blog.chron.com/kuffsworld/2016/03/whats-next-for-adrian-garcia/ Which one of the offices do you see him seeking IF he makes a political comeback ? A.) Harris County Judge in 2018 when County Judge Ed Emmett [R] retires after 11 1/2 years in office B.) Harris County Commissioner-Precinct 2 against incumbent Jack Morman [R] in 2018. C.) Houston Mayor in 2023 (assuming Turner wins reelection in 2019 by massive landslide). D.) TX House of Representatives E.) TX State Senate F.) Harris County DA
  4. With Gene Locke (2009 candidate for Houston Mayor) being appointed as the interim County Commissioner of Precinct 1 by Harris County Judge Ed Emmett [R] last week. Locke is serving out the remainder of the term of the late El Franco Lee (D), who died suddenly on January 3rd. Longtime State Senator Rodney Ellis (D-Houston), who's represented the 13th District in the TX State Senate since 1990, has announced he's running for County Commissioner despite remaining on the ballot for TX State Senator District 13. Others planning on campaigning for the position include District D City Councilman Dwight Boykins (D), District B City Councilman Jerry Davis (D) & District K City Councilman Larry Green (D). Reaction to the Musical Chairs ? http://www.texastribune.org/2016/01/22/ellis-stays-senate-ballot-wants-commissioners-seat/ http://www.houstonchronicle.com/news/houston-texas/houston/article/Candidates-hurry-into-race-as-Locke-named-to-6778103.php
  5. Term-limited out of the Houston City Council from seeking a 4th term, there's been talk on the political future of 3-term Houston City Councilman At-Large 4 C.O. Bradford (D) & what he plans on doing next after he leaves office in a few months from now. Which next political office will Bradford run for ? A.) Harris County District Attorney in 2016 B.) Harris County Judge in 2018 C.) Harris County Sheriff in 2016
  6. 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
  7. More house cleaning by Harris County Sheriff Ron Hickman [R] as he makes more changes at the Harris County Sheriff's Department by driving out the old & in with the people he knows: http://www.houstonpress.com/news/new-sheriff-ron-hickman-ends-jail-chaplain-services-contract-7560508 Your reaction on how Hickman is making these aggressive changes ? A.) Approve B. Disapprove C.) Too Early to Tell
  8. With the new sheriff in town, comes in the new policies of a new administration at the Harris County Sheriff's Office. In terms of how Harris County Sheriff Ron Hickman [R] has been handling staff changes, etc., it won't make the diversity advocates very happy at all as he's cleaning out the Garcia staffers including African American, Latino & Asian appointees to either civilian posts or fired them altogether! There's also rumblings among minority deputies that Hickman's moves are going back to the days of then-Sheriff Tommy Thomas [R], who escalated the Good Ol' Boy System inside the Sheriff's Department so bad, it's not even funny! Hickman, of course, has flatly denied these accusations of being hostile to minority deputies, etc., saying he hasn't even finish assembling his entire staff yet. I'd like to hear from y'all including your reaction & thoughts on these developments! http://www.houstonchronicle.com/news/houston-texas/houston/article/Critics-say-diversity-lacking-in-new-sheriff-s-6284551.php http://www.houstonmatters.org/segments/segment-b/2015/06/17/new-sheriff-ron-hickman-discusses-changes-to-his-department-and-diversity-of-his-staff
  9. Tonight's only statewide televised debate between State Senators Dan Patrick (R-Houston) and Leticia Van de Putte (D-San Antonio) in the race to succeed outgoing 3-term Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst ®, will be broadcast on several Texas TV stations statewide across the Lone Star State and while many are expecting Patrick to win handily on November 4th, the big question is whether Patrick will carry Harris County ? A. Yes: he trounced Dewhurst in Harris County both in the March 4th primaries and May 27th runoff B. No C. To be determined http://www.danpatrick.org/ https://leticiavandeputte.com/
