Friends, last month, more than 65,000 people in Harris County voted for me in the 2018 Democratic Primary. I am very proud of that, but we were not successful in this election. We ran a great race and will do it again soon.
Thanks to all my friends and supporters, my fellow attorneys, for taking my calls, and the time, talent and treasure they provided to my Campaign.
My wife and family are the real heroes here for putting up with me during the grueling Campaign Schedule I kept for the last 10 months before the election. It’s not easy on any family during a Campaign and we are still trying to get back to “normal,” whatever that is.
The best part of this process was meeting new people and making new friends. I got to know almost all of the HC Democratic Candidates I was on the ballot with. They are all hard working people and I hope to see each of them in elected office soon. They all deserve it.
Thank you to all of the Democratic Precinct Chairs and individual activists/volunteers. Thanks to all of you who supported me in this race. Even if you did not vote for me though, I want to say thanks for all you do. Your volunteer work for the Party and on the important issues is what keeps the organization going. Without you the Party does not work. We must continue working together for our common goals.
Thanks to the elected officials who gave their endorsement: Congressman Gene Green, State Rep. Jessica Farrar, State Rep. Armando Walle, Former Mayor Annise Parker, Adrian Garcia; Pct 3 Constable Sherman Eagleton, and Houston City Councilmember Robert Gallegos. I’m proud to have had your support.
For those groups and organizations I earned the endorsement from: thanks to the Houston Chronicle, the Harris County Tejano Democrats, the Texas Coalition of Black Democrats, the HGLBT Caucus, the AFL-CIO, Communication workers of America (CWA) Local 622, the Heights Democrats, the Bay Area New Democrats (BAND), Mexican-American Bar Association of Houston (MABAH), Association of Women Attorneys of Houston, Area 5 Democrats, the Texas Executive Progressive Council, the Pleasantville Voters League and the Clear Lake and Webster Bar Association (CLAW Bar) and any others I might have missed.
Get out and vote in the runoffs on May 22 and in the general election this November.
These Courts and political offices are way too important to not have a voice in selecting who will represent us in office and who will make decisions in these Harris County Courts that will affect the lives of our families.
Register now and Vote, OUR future depends on it.
