  1. Now that US Rep-elect Sylvia Garcia (D-TX) has resigned from the TX State Senate (District 6) in order to head to Capitol Hill, the Special Election to replace Garcia in the TX State Senate has come down State Reps. Carol Alvarado (D-Houston) of District 145 (she previously ran in a special election in 2013 & lost) & Ana Hernandez (D-Houston) of District 143, both are the serious contenders for this office. Who wins tonight ? A.) Alvarado B.) Hernandez https://www.chron.com/news/politics/article/Election-Day-arrives-in-Senate-District-6-special-13451984.php
  2. Unless people have been living under rocks or worse, Harris County Judge Ed Emmett [R] announced back on November 17th, 2016, that he will be seeking reelection to a 3rd consecutive full 4-year term in the 2018 elections after months & months of speculation on his future. Emmett, 67, was appointed as Harris County Judge in 2007 following the resignation of then-County Judge Robert Eckels [R]. He won a special election in 2008 & won reelection to full 4-year terms in 2010 & 2014. He previously represented East Harris County in the TX House of Representatives representing District 79 (1979-1983) & District 127 (1983-1987). He was the unsuccessful GOP nominee for TX Railroad Commissioner, Place 3 in 1988. http://www.chron.com/news/politics/houston/article/Harris-County-Judge-Ed-Emmett-will-won-t-seek-10619387.php How do y'all like Emmett's plans on seeking reelection in 2018 ? A.) Love it. B.) Hate it. C.) Wait & See. I don't see former Houston, TX Mayor Annise Parker (D) running against Emmett in 2018 because he'd easily destroy her by 20+ percentage points.
  3. With the likelihood of Texas State AG Greg Abbott ® getting elected as the 48th Governor of Texas on November 4th, questions arise whether Abbott will cut into Democratic territory such as Harris County (which Bill White barely carried in 2010 in the previous gubernatorial election). Will Abbott carry Harris County against Davis in November ? A. Yes B. No
  4. For those researching early Houston and/or genealogy in Harris County, the Harris County District Clerk site has online historical legal documents (including naturalization records, dockets) dating back to 1837 - you can search by name, country of origin, and/or year or browse by tag name: http://www.hcdistrictclerk.com/Edocs/Public/search.aspx (click on the "Historical" tab)
  5. Here's a great source of online map images for the area dating from the 1870s to the 1960s: http://www.hctx.net/archives/Maps.aspx My apologies if this has been mentioned before! Browse away!
