Council campaign miscellania

Just some notes and news about various Council campaign activities, collected and collated into one convenient location for you...

Karen Derr will have an "old fashioned patriotic grand opening" of her campaign headquarters, which happens to be her house in the Heights. The event is this Saturday, February 28, from 2 to 4, at 448 Columbia (map). For more information, call Lance Marshall at 281-702-6367. Derr also has a podcast up on her site, for those of you who want to hear from her and can't wait for my interview.

Also this Saturday, from 2 to 5, is a house party for Maverick Welsh, at the home of Shannon Bishop and Kevin Jeffries, at 829 Allston (map).

If you're looking for something before then, there will be a fundraiser for Yolanda Navarro Flores this Wednesday from 5:30 to 7:00 at Rico's Triangle Cafe, 4002 North Main (map). There's a Facebook event for it, or contact Marisol with Campos Communications, 713 861 2244, marisol@camposcommunications.com.

Finally for District H, while I missed posting the info about a fundraiser for Ed Gonzalez that took place this past Friday, you can help him with blockwalking any weekend from 9:30 a.m. - 1 p.m. or 1 p.m. - 5 p.m. Show up at the headquarters on 415 Fairbanks St (map) or call Jason Cisneroz at 832 368 2042 for more info. We got our door knocked by the Derr campaign yesterday; I'm curious to see which others come by between now and May.

And in news from other districts, Carl Whitmarsh sent out word that there is another Democratic contender for District A, a fellow named Lane Lewis, who is an educator and resident of Oak Forest. That's all I know about him at this point.

That's what I know at this time. What are you hearing?

It's not so much what I'm hearing, it's the number of Karen Derr signs in vacant lots and in the right of ways that I have seen. I must have seen five in the rough vicinity of Irvington Blvd. and ,also, Cavalcade, as I drove around a few days ago. Maybe I'll collect a few and drop them off at her campaign office.
