Filing report: Noel Freeman

Noel Freeman, who had been a candidate for the At Large #3 position in the May 2007 special election that was eventually won by Council Member Melissa Noriega, has sent out a press release saying he'll officially file his Treasurer's report on Thursday for the At Large #4 seat. Freeman had announced his intent to run for that seat last month. As far as I know, he's the first official candidate for this seat.

I'm going to try to keep up with these as best I can. I feel like there ought to be a way to look up who's filed a report with the City Secretary online, but I don't see anything obvious on the City Secretary's web page. Am I missing something?

UPDATE: Some action on the Mayoral front as well. City Controller Annise Parker is planning to announce her candidacy on February 2, which is a day after the official start date for raising money. Also, a group of Latino leaders, including the suddenly-ubiquitous Vidal Martinez, has been busy vetting the Mayoral wannabees. I have a feeling this campaign will be in full swing a bit earlier than the 2003 version was.

Great news on Freeman. He is articulate, strong willed, and has City of Houston employment experience. I hope people give him a true and fair hearing if some prominent Fat Cat/Retread decides to run for that spot too.
