The Houston Democracy Project is back from a trip to the Chicago-area and is ready to go. Just one week before early voting starts in Houston municipal elections.
(Above is an autumnal picture from the Caldwell Forest Preserve in Chicago. The water in the picture is the North Fork of the Chicago River. )
Four notes before back to regular posting tomorrow--
*Houston Democracy Project recommendations on who to consider and who to avoid in Houston city elections are on the way.
*The weekly Houston Democracy Project segment on KPFT's Politics Done Right will be broadcast Thursday, 10/19, from 6 AM to 7 AM. You can listen live on 90.1 FM or view the show later on host Egberto Willies' website.
* We'll see if seditious extremist Jim Jordan is elected Speaker of the House tomorrow. In any case, just that he is so close to office is further reminder that the institutions will not save us. Jordan is set to be two steps from the White House after a lifetime of misconduct and insurrection. The Houston Democracy Project is about rank & file residents of Houston and Harris County showing up in whatever ways needed to protect freedom. We must show up for ourselves.
*There was good news from Poland yesterday. The far-right anti-democratic government was removed from the governing coalition at the ballot box. This despite years of rigging the process and unfair practices in this election. This election gives Texans hope as we fight Abbott, Patrick & Paxton.
