Ask The Mayor

Kristin Mack mentioned in Friday's column that Bill White will have a live webcast at 12:30 PM on Election Day, November 8. Part of this webcast is intended to be interactive, with Mayor White responding to feedback from any interested participants. Details are on - you will need to register to get a direct link to the webcast. If you've got a question for the Mayor, here's your chance to ask it.

The Government Accountability Office (GAO) issued a report today I requested with Rep. Henry Waxman and other Members Of Congress. In sum, the GAO found that "some of [the] concerns about electronic voting machines have been realized and have caused problems with recent elections, resulting in the loss and miscount of votes." GAO found that these concerns "merit the focused attention of
and local
authorities responsible for election administration."

Why are certified Houston Firefighters/EMT's being fired because of a shortage of Paramedics?

Not only is this a waste of taxpayer money, but it is not accomplishing the ultimate goal.

Did you all see the same thing I saw? It was a canned speech, absolutely nothing interactive about it (except for the polling questions in the right margin). It was lame.
