We continue with At Large #1, where term-limited incumbent Steve Costello is now running for Mayor. Today’s candidate is Jenifer Rene Pool, who is making her third attempt to win a citywide race; she finished third in a crowded field for At Large #3 in 2013, less than one percentage point out of the runoff. Pool owns a construction and permitting consulting firm. She is a longtime political activist, serving as President of the Houston GLBT Political Caucus from 2005 through 2008, and advising the HISD Board of Trustees on the non-discrimination policy they adopted in 2011. We had a lot to talk about, and you can hear it here:
