Today we vote on City Proposition 1, which is leading by a 14-point margin in a recent poll. I have decided after a lot of back and forth on the issue to vote against it, but I have no criticism of anyone who votes in favor. It's a tough call and there are good arguments on each side, but in the end I believe that we can resolve this issue without imperiling the promises that were made to city employees. There are also elections in various Houston suburbs, so check your County Clerk's webpage for details.
In addition, there are municipal elections in San Antonio, Dallas and surrounding areas, and Austin. Byron has some endorsements for Austin, while Sarah focuses on one race in particular. Expect both of these elections to have fairly low turnout, so your vote will count for more than usual. Don't waste the chance to have your say.Posted by Charles Kuffner on May 15, 2004 to Election 2004 | TrackBack
