Reminder:  Latinos for Obama Documentary TONIGHT

Stop on over at the Obama for America Houston HQ at 4400 Almeda for a documentary on immigration and a discussion about Latinos for Obama. I’ll be saying a few words and giving my take on things. There will be snacks!

GOP Knocks Out Rubio From Primetime

Soon after Romney announces that he will not show his birth certificate to prove he’s from Michigan, he is thinking about bumping off his LaTeano buddy, Marco Rubio so that Ann Romney can have a primetime slot. Ann doesn’t have to show “you people” her birth certificate either. Marco, on the other hand…

but the shift could also cause tensions with a rising GOP star and Latinos

Yeah, bumping off the LaTeano might actually get Romney some Latino votes.

Labor Backs Most of Bonds

Looks like local Labor is supporting all the bonds, except the Houston ISD bond.

The AFL-CIO did not take a position on Houston Independent School District’s $1.9 billion bond measure. The organization cited what it called ”the district’s lack of credibility and transparency plus the lack of apprenticeship training programs and jobs for HISD’s graduates and community on the construction job sites.”

I’m wondering where our Latino elected officials are standing on the bonds? Send me your press releases!

Have a good weekend, folks.
