Interview with Mo Jenkins

Mo Jenkins

Believe it or not, early voting for the 2024 primaries begins next week. I have a full week of interviews to bring you to get us there. The first three will be for the open seat in HD139, and the first candidate I have for you is Mo Jenkins. Jenkins already has a bunch of legislative experience, working as a staffer for Rep. Abel Herrero, where as the Committee Director for the House Corrections Committee, she has played a pivotal role in legislative successes, including defeating school vouchers and establishing the Open Burn Pits Registry Fund. She has lived through homelessness and the foster care system, and would be the first transgender person to serve in the Legislature if elected. She was just endorsed by the Chronicle. Here’s the interview:


Karthik Soora, SD15

    did you interview Richard Bonton in the harris county department of education?
    there currentlyis a judgement against him, he has 4 open active fines since 2022 in Judge Stephens court for speeding and refusing to appear. He also after his federal cases for fraud, tampering was reduce misdemeanor he pleaed guilty/no contente. The girl involved pleaed guilty also. This Kim OGG tough on voter fraud. Research for yourself. He can run the problem is how could any organization endorse him say he a good person is mprally corrupt. He also was charge with a road rage incident pulling gun on a lady on freeway. case dismissed but the stated on paper the probable cause exists but i case dismiss because wouldn’t testify. I understand he went to party office checking the ballot looking for an opportunity to run for a position which is why he chose a down ballot race hoping to slip thru with the help of the endorsement from HBAD. All Candidates should be backgrounded by organization before taking their money or giving an endorsement to see if the are morally sound. Clearly he is not. His Mother is on ballot also running for Senate district 15 she maybe a good person. But is it true the apple don’t fall to far from tree.? I don’t know but Richard Bonton is a hot mess!!!
