Redistricting and adding two new seats to Houston City Council now moves forward.
Why didn’t this Kingwood Democrat attend Kingwood’s immigrant & annexation bashing session, also known as Kingwood’s District E redistricting forum? Given the outcome on Item 26 (and thanks to Greg for some great play-by-play) it was going to move forward.
Besides, I’ve had enough of the anti-annexation whining already, and I really don’t mind Kingwood and Clear Lake being lumped together as any move toward separating them would dilute minority voting strength in neighboring areas. And furthermore, I can read the local Mexican bashing in the two newspapers we have in the ‘Wood. (Or I’ll read how my State Rep. is one of the sponsors of HB-12 and wants to internally sonogram women ). Nuff said.
Now, let’s get to the real debate. Who gets these districts?
