Carroll Robinson

The other contested race for HCC Trustee is in District IV, which is the open seat being vacated by Michael Williams. It features two former City Council members, the first of which is Carroll Robinson, who served in At Large #5 from 1997 to 2003. Robinson is a professor at Texas Southern, Chairman of the Houston Citizens Chamber of Commerce, a member of the HISD Bond Oversight Committee, and a number of other things past and present. Here’s what we talked about:

    I remember when council member robinson carroll first appeared on city council in 1997,we spared on a few city issues over the six years he was on council.The main issue i went toe to toe with him on was his total interest in converting the police,fire,under one dept,i disagreed,i did not want what carroll robinson wanted which he called “a safety dept”.Now then,please take notice that his opponent jew don boney jr also works at tsu in the same campus-i think these two individuals also have a personal challenge between them selves to run and win for office,as if they have a one dollar side bet on the race.
    Take note-Its been said in the streets for years that carroll robinson is a hard right republican that trys to front as a democrat,after all he is always working on projects with that conservative republican paul bettencourt-there close friends you know?
    carroll robinson has always earned my respect-but never my vote-because i live in this district i will be voting for jew don boney jr whom is first on the ballot.

    respectfully submitted
