We move on to At Large #3, where CM Michael Kubosh is in his first term. I have two interviews to bring you for this race, and unfortunately neither of them is with CM Kubosh. I reached out to him and we talked about it, but were not able to come to an accommodation. Here’s the interview I did with him in 2013 if you want to review that. Be that as it may, the first interview this week is with John C. B. LaRue. A native of Philly, John moved to Texas at the age of ten and served as an intern for the Speaker of the Texas House while attending St. Edwards University. He attended law school while working as an Admissions Counselor at the University of St. Thomas, and spent some time in Washington DC after getting his degree as Policy & Program Coordinator of Preservation Action, a national grassroots non-profit that seeks to make historic preservation a national priority. He now works as a family lawyer in Houston, and has the distinction of being one half of the first same-sex couple to get a marriage license in Harris County. Here’s the interview:
(Note: This interview took place before the Supreme Court ruling that required a repeal or referendum on HERO.)
