Interview with David Mincberg

The race for Harris County Judge has lived up to its billing as the highest-profile local campaign this year. David Mincberg has been airing ads on TV for a couple of weeks now, while appointed incumbent Ed Emmett has scored with a hurricane preparedness billboard. The good news is that for the most part, the issues are still at the forefront of this campaign, as I'd hoped they would be. And it's a real pleasure to discuss issues with Mincberg, who has an informed and thoughtful response for each question I asked him in this recent interview, as always in MP3 format. One point to note here is that this interview was conducted two weeks ago, before the formation of Hurricane Gustav; my question about hurricane preparedness was referring to the events leading up to Tropical Storm Eduoard.

David did not come across well in the Chronicle's article on the first debate. He needs to be better prepared and he should think twice (or three or four times) before debating for the sake of debating in unfriendly confines.

I am getting real tired of Mincberg's ads - acting as if he has the power to make sure all the power comes right back on and that nothing like the horrors of Hurricane Ike should ever happen in "the energy capital" - sorry but my favorite comment is BITE ME. As a RE investor he probably definitely knows the ins and outs of all the RE issues in and around Houston but to think that he can make that claim - let's get real here. I think the fact that Ed Emmett and Mayor Bill did their 24/7 gig at the OEM for 7 or more days says a whole lot more than some fancy(?) commercials.
