Interview with Council Member Stephen Costello

In addition to all of the partisan and special elections on the ballot, there are three referenda for City of Houston residents. One is a fairly non-controversial one to change residency requirements for Houston Council districts for the 2011 election, which will be the first one post-redistricting. The second is the red light camera question, and I think by now we’re all a little sick of that discussion. The third is the Renew Houston proposition, now known as Proposition 1. As there are still numerous questions about how exactly this would work if approved, I sat down with CM Stephen Costello, the main driver behind the initiative, to ask them of him. Prop 1 has picked up numerous endorsements lately, including the Houston GLBT Political Caucus, Scenic Houston, and the Houston Police Officers Union. It will likely get a stronger push, and a more organized push back, after Mayor Parker and Council finalize the fee structure, which is expected very shortly. Please pardon the background noise, we did this one in a coffee house.
