If it's true that you aren't anybody in this town until Miya Shay takes a picture of you at an event of some kind, then I can now say that I am somebody.
The more important aspect of Miya's story is that it features our friend and neighbor Ashish Mahendru, who is running for the 125th Civil District Court here in Harris County. Ashish had a successful fundraiser recently, and like many of the Democratic judicial candidates for next year, he's been busy on his campaign. The difference in visibility alone for the class of '08 is a big reason why there's so much energy and enthusiasm about next year's election among us Democrats. You'll be hearing a lot more about this as we go, of course, but for now, take a moment to check out Ashish Mahendru and his campaign, and know that at the very least, he and his wife throw a heck of a party.Posted by Charles Kuffner on November 06, 2007 to Election 2008
