Interview with Sherrie Matula

I don't think I need to give too much intro to Sherrie Matula, whom the TexBlog PAC endorsed in June. She's a career educator who ran a strong underfunded race in a district (HD129) that no one saw as competitive in 2006, but by doing so she put herself and her campaign on the map for this year. And indeed, the establishment has taken notice and gotten on board, as groups like Annie's List and Texas Parent PAC have also endorsed her. Matula lives in Clear Lake, which was hit hard by Hurricane Ike, and her campaign has been as busy providing information about assistance and other resources for affected residents as it had been campaigning, which is something that can't really be said for her opponent. This is one of the first interviews I did post-Ike, and one of several with candidates who live or work in some of the badly damaged areas, so a lot of what we talked about, as always in MP3 format, was related to that. Let me know what you think.

UPDATE: After posting about the ParentPAC endorsement, it occurs to me that while I knew this was coming, I hadn't realized that it hadn't been formalized till now. Sorry for the mixup.
