Dr. Kendall L. Baker Encourages All Houstonians to Vote "NO" on Proposition 1 -- The Bathroom Ordinance -- HERO Ordinance


Dr. Kendall L. Baker: "We are Citizens of Houston of all races, creeds and political beliefs who feel there should be NO MEN IN WOMEN'S BATHROOMS. Join us in voting "NO" on "PROP 1" when early voting begins on Monday, October 19, 2015."



We have come together to urge Houstonians to vote NO on Mayor Parker’s ordinance in the November 3rd city elections, because it would force our wives and daughters to share their restrooms, dressing rooms and locker-room showers with men. The ordinance gives new special privileges to two special interests, neither of which qualify as true “minorities” requiring special legal protection.


PASTOR KENDALL L. BAKER



TURNOUT WILL BE THE KEY IN 2015

"The only question now is whether the African American and Hispanic communities are going to show up at the polls to vote -- and that my friend is a story for another day. So stay tuned...” Taylor says.


ENOUGH IS ENOUGH SAYS DR. BAKER


THE HERO ORDINANCE IS DECEPTIVE

Mayor Parker’s ordinance is built on deception. It is not about protecting the rights of women, racial minorities, the disabled, elderly or military personnel. There are already important laws on the federal, state and local levels that protect such individuals from discrimination for employment, housing and access to public accommodations. The ordinance’s naming of these groups is a ruse in an attempt to hide the ordinance’s real purpose, which is to make “sexual orientation” and “gender identification” two new protected classes.

Campaign for Houston is made up of parents and family members who do not want their daughters, sisters or mothers forced to share restrooms in public facilities with gender-confused men, who – under this ordinance – can call themselves “women” on a whim and use women’s restrooms whenever they wish. This “bathroom ordinance” therefore is an attempt to re-structure society to fit a societal vision we simply do not share or can support.

The ordinance also limits free speech and religious expression in unprecedented ways so as to not “offend” these two new “protected” groups, both of which are defined by their behaviors - not by characteristics given to them at birth. 

Mayor Parker’s subpoenas issued earlier this year to five pastors to produce all of their communications with their congregations, including their sermons, reveals the real purpose of this proposed ordinance. Her actions show the length to which Mayor Parker and her allies wish to force their beliefs onto all Houstonians, even if that means the rest of us will have to accept and affirm behaviors many of us might consider to be abhorrent or sinful.

The Parker administration’s deceptive tactics in attempting to pass this ordinance were exposed by two separate Texas Supreme Court decisions, which – first – forced her administration to accept the signatures of more than 52,000 voters to put the ordinance up for a vote on the November ballot and – secondly – rejected her initial deceitful ballot language, designed to confuse the voters.

We consider Mayor Parker’s ordinance to be an attack on the traditional family. In the interest of our children and our families, the men and women behind Campaign for Houston urge all Houston voters to oppose Mayor Parker’s bathroom ordinance by voting “NO” in the upcoming city elections on November 3rd.

PLEASE STAND WITH ME!



DEAR HOUSTONIANS:

Hello, my name is Kendall L. Baker, a native Houstonian, originally from the northeast side. I am a candidate for City Council District F in the 2015 City of Houston elections. First and foremost, I love my city; particularly District F, where I've resided for nearly 25 years and where I’ve pastored a church for over 10 years now. I was employed with the City of Houston for almost 29 years servicing citizens directly in 911 Emergency, Public Works and Engineering, Consumer Affairs Division and as Division Manager of the new improved 311 Help and Information Center. My excellent performance ratings and perfect attendance gave me the ability to see inside the core of what makes the City of Houston work and what doesn’t. Unfortunately, one thing I know for sure is that most of District F (Alief, Tanglewilde, Royal Oaks, Weshchase, Westwood, Briar Meadow, etc.) residents are underrepresented. Why? I'm glad you asked. 

District F needs and deserves a candidate who can effectively communicate the needs of the entire district. My experience has equipped me to know every inch of District F extremely well, as well as the entire city. My motto is, "No constituent left behind!" My first task is to make sure our police department has adequate resources and personnel to provide better security in District F. Public safety overall includes improving the infrastructure by making sure roads are safe, by addressing our enormous pothole problem and broken streets. District F streets are broken in part by the underlying deteriorating water and sewer lines. I vow to immediately correct and improve these conditions as your next Councilman.

Second, I stand for “equality” but not “special rights!” Our current Mayor, Annise Parker, is calling for Equal Rights which are in fact particularly and especially designed, aimed, and intended for the LGBT community who wants to implement policy that will threaten religious freedom and criminalize those who stand for the protection of women and children. This ordinance gives men access to women's restrooms and other public accommodations. As your Councilman I'm against this type of ordinance and I will protect religious freedom, family values, women, children and citizens in general.

Third, the key to any city’s financial security is economic development that will attract and incentivize corporations to relocate to Houston and provide more jobs! I pledge to ensure that we do that; especially improving economic development, increasing jobs, building better infrastructure in District F!

Fourth, our city must keep a disciplined fiscal accountability, bringing all debt under control, including the infamous pension fund; controlling unnecessary spending, and ceasing the present Administration’s “kick the debt down the road” mentality. This includes revisiting how we allocate funding to districts based on the actual prioritized needs of districts, not “under the table bargaining” to get a favor from the Mayor. This is why I will also support a Charter change that will allow council members to place items on the agenda, not just the mayor only. In addition, I will address other divisive issues including but not limited to the drainage fee and the feeding ordinance. I will protect, promote, advance, and fight for District F!

Houston, it's time for us to be reunited again and this can be made possible by your vote this November. Please vote for Dr. Kendall L. Baker for District F because I truly care about Houston!

Sincerely,
Dr. Kendall L. Baker for City Council District F. Offers a refreshing change by an experienced candidate for all of District F. Call 832-858-4831 or email us at kendall.baker@sbcglobal.net.
