Earlier this fall the GLBT Political Caucus took a bold historic step and endorsed the revised HISD bond proposal. We were the first major community advocacy group to do so. Now the bond proposal has received the endorsement of the AFLCIO and the Greater Houston Partnership.
Today, several influential public officials held a press conference to announce their support of HISD's plans. State Representatives Garnet Coleman and Boris Miles, as well as State Senator Rodney Ellis have all come to the same conclusion that the Caucus voiced several weeks ago: Houston children need the money and the projects included in this bond.
These officials are progressive leaders in Texas. They have received the support of Caucus in their elections, and I'm glad to see that they share our goal for Houston's schools. It's validating to share a point of view with these courageous leaders.
