District H candidates overview

It’s District H’s turn to get a quick candidate overview in the Chron. No one says anything shocking or profound in the two paragraphs or so they’re allotted, but if you’re still unfamiliar with the names this ought to help.

I came home last night to find a message on our voice mail from Adrian Garcia. Apparently, Diane Mosier of the Heights Democratic Caucus emailed him about my earlier blog ruminations as well. I called him back and we had a nice chat. As it happens, I received a mailer from his campaign yesterday, the first one I’d gotten from him (I’d gotten several from the obviously well-financed Longoria campaign prior to this), and later in the evening a call from a campaign volunteer asking for support. Garcia didn’t get off to an early start, but he’s making up for it now. I also noticed while walking the dog yesterday that yard signs, mostly for him with a few for Gonzalo Camacho thrown in, have sprouted up all over. Early voting has started, Election Day is two weeks off – play ball!

    Most of the paragraphs in the Chron article seemed to say “my college background of ‘X’ perfectly prepares me to deal with District H.”

    I noticed the Gonzalo signs in my neighborhood, too.

    His slogan “It’s our turn” is interesting. Who’s us? Bolivians? Engineers? Whose turn was it when Gabe Vasquez’s seat?

    I was wondering that myself. Can’t be Hispanics, since Vasquez and Felix Fraga certainly qualify. Can’t be Heights residents, since Vasquez lives four blocks from me. I ran out of speculation at that point.

    I was a little uncomfortable with that “it’s our turn” slogan given that the distinguishing factor in Gonzalo Camacho’s background seems to be recent citizenship. Of course, that may be my inner IL speaking, and I could be totally wrong on the “our” he means.
