2007 General Election Endorsements

Last night the Houston GLBT Political Caucus voted on candidates to endorse for the November 2007 general election. The candidates gave some great speeches, and the debate was lively and spirited about whom to endorse. There were also quite a few new faces at the meeting participating in the process, and we hope they'll all be able to make it to our next meeting in September. Below is the press release the caucus released following our endorsement meeting. Enjoy!

I'm curious. Why the endorcement for Councilmember Clutterbuck, when it appears she didn't even appear at the endorcement meeting?

I live in District C, specifically the Meyerland area, and even with the Houston GLBT endorcement, I won't be voting for Clutterbuck if and when she runs for re-election.

I know I'm not alone my views of Councilmember Clutterbuck. With almost 90% of the residents on my street requesting Clutterbuck's assistance on a single matter dealing with a major road repair issue (yes, I know that's not a GLBT issue), all of our requests fell on the deaf ears of Councilmember Clutterbuck.
