City Council quandary

I suppose you could file this under Good Problems To Have, but I'm trying to figure out which of the myriad of candidates for the District H City Council seat to vote for. I'm hoping that one of Hector Longoria's many opponents can get into a runoff with him, but the question for now is which one to support in the meantime. The establishment candidate seems to be Adrian Garcia, who has the backing of Sylvia Garcia and Carol Alvarado, according to this Press article. Rob Humenik likes Diana Davila Martinez, while Tiffany says she's voting for Gonzalo Camacho, whom she cited as a competent voice of reason on the Woodland Heights email list. There's a candidate forum on October 14 at Zion Lutheran Church, but I'll be inconveniently out of the country at that time.

Hmm. Maybe, in my copious spare time, I'll call some of these people and ask them why I should vote for them. That might be cool.

Don't forget, you've got 5 at-large races to scout, too. The KCC had a forum Tuesday night for candidates from Districts A and G, plus the at large races. It was informative. Most of the candidates showed up and pledged at least some supprt to the KCC's goals with regard to the Katy Freeway project.

The bad thing was crowd attendance was sparce which was disappointing.

Yeah, but at least I'm familiar with some of those names. Other than Longoria, I couldn't pick any of them out in a lineup in District H.

Glad to hear the KCC event went well, even if it was not well-attended. I had a schedule conflict, unfortunately.
