Ed Gonzalez kickoff event

Ed Gonzalez will have a campaign kickoff event for District H next Wednesday, February 11, at Irma's Restaurant downtown from 5:30 to 7 PM. You can get all the details here (PDF).

We're rapidly approaching the filing deadline for the May special election, and from there it's going to be an absolute sprint to the finish line - well, the first finish line - in May. As we know, there are seven declared candidates so far, with two more in the wings. That can all change, but for sure this is going to be a crowded field, and everyone in the running is going to be hard-pressed to get their message out. I'll do whatever I can to pass along event announcements and other news, and of course I'll be working on doing interviews with everyone. If you're a candidate or associated with one, and haven't contacted me, please do so I can make sure I get your information as well.

Along those lines, the Greater Heights Democratic Club is planning a District H candidate forum for March 19 at 7 PM, location to be determined. They do not have current contact information for Lupe Garcia, Rick Rodriguez, Yolanda Navarro Flores, or Diana Davila Martinez. If you are one of these people or know how to contact one of them, please drop me a note with an email address and/or cell number so Kevin Hoffman and the GHDC folks can get in touch with you. Thanks very much

Finally, I note that Gonzalez was at that Heights crime prevention townhall meeting, and posted a report about it on his blog. So there you have it.

You are doing a superb job with District H. In 2003 we were six candidates. The more candidates the less time available for voters to learn about them. Even some November at large folks are taking advantage of the attention to the expense of District H voters (personal thought).
So, Diana D. and I have not signed in yet. There is plenty time for that. Will have to read Ed's blog on crime.
Saw the news, Mayor White expects the economy in 2009 to be the worst of his term. He tends to play bad news down so lets expect to have some rough times ahead.
Are you keeping up with the Latino Summit? You should if not. Visit Marc Campos for info.
