Houston Business Connections Newspaper© Would Like to Congratulate All 2018 Democratic and Republican, Candidates Who Have Earned their Respective Party's Nomination to Appear on Tuesday, November 6, 2018, Midterm Election Ballot in Harris County, Texas

ANALYSIS BY AUBREY R. TAYLOR

There’s a lot of talk about Texas being a red state floating around. Sure, traditionally that has been the case. But after the historic showing put on display by Texas Democrats on Tuesday, March 6, 2018, reasonable minds would have to agree that the aforementioned distinction could possibly be on the verge of becoming a hue of a different shade in the very near future – if Democrats have anything to say about it in the fall. But Tuesday, November 6, 2018, the day when Democratic hopefuls and Republican hopefuls are set to face off is still a little way’s off. Before we get there, we must first take care of a little unfinished inter-party business. So, let’s not forget about Tuesday, May 22, 2018 a day when Democrats and Republicans who failed to capture a majority of the vote back on Tuesday, March 6, 2018, must square off once more against their fellow inter-party rival in hopes of earning the “HIGHLY COVETED DISTINCTION” of “PARTY NOMINEE” for the Tuesday, November 6,, 2018 Midterm Election! Cosme Garcia, Dylan Osborne, Danyahel "Danny" Norris, Prince E. Bryant, II, Diane Trautman, Gayle Young Mitchell, Fran Watson, Rita Lucido, Jeff Williams, Mike Wolfe, Josh Wallenstein, Richard Cantu, Lizzie Pannill Fletcher, Laura Moser, Lupe Valdez, Andrew White, Marilyn Burgess, Rozzy Shorter, Michelle Fraga, Richard Risinger, Phillip Aronoff, Carmen Maria Montiel, Sandra G. Moore, Marty Schexnayder, Sharon M. Burney, Cheryl Elliott Thornton, Sri Preston Kulkarni, Letitia Plummer, Tawana Walter Cadien and Mike Siegel are the key candidates who need you to return to the polls on Tuesday, May 22, 2018 to cast a vote for them. In case you don’t already know, Monday, April 23, 2018, is the last day to register to vote in the Tuesday, May 22, 2018, Runoff Election in Texas. The first day of early voting is on Monday, May 14, 2018; and the last day to vote early in the Runoff Election is on Friday, May 18, 2018 – so don’t forget to vote early. Once the runoff business is taken care of, we must make it our business to elect the "BEST-QUALIFIED" candidates who value our vote in the midterms. Houston Business Connections Newspaper is published by Aubrey R.

Dr. Cynthia Gary Is The Right Choice in the Runoff Election for Missouri City Council At-Large Position #2 Against Chris Preston


VOTE FOR CYNTHIA GARY IN THE JUNE 11, 2016 RUNOFF ELECTION FOR MISSOURI CITY COUNCIL AT-LARGE POSITION #2

On Saturday, June 11, 2016 our friend and supporter Cynthia Gary will be looking to make history again in Missouri City, Texas when she faces off against Council Member Chris Preston in the runoff election. A victory by Cynthia Gary in the runoff race for Missouri City Council At-Large Position #2 would make Cynthia the first African American woman to represent Missouri City as an at-large councilwoman. However, a victory over the incumbent (Chris Preston) would not be the first time that she's had her name written in the history books in the "Show Me City". Back in 2007 Cynthia defeated (District B) incumbent Missouri City Councilman Don Smith in a landslide victory en route to becoming the first African American woman to hold a city council seat in the city’s fifty-year history. 

KEY ENDORSEMENTS

Cynthia Gary made the runoff by finishing second behind Councilman Chris Preston back in the Saturday, May 7, 2016 General Election. Susan Soto was also in the race and finished third. Since, no candidate received a majority of the vote, Cynthia and councilman Preston must now face off in the Saturday, June 11, 2016 runoff election. IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: Cynthia has been endorsed by Mayor Allen Owen (Mayor of Missouri City, Texas), Councilman Jerry Wyatt (the At-Large Position #1 Council Member), and Councilman Floyd Emery (the District D Council Member), and many other leaders.

Early voting for this runoff election will take place from Tuesday, May 31, 2016 through Tuesday, June 7, 2016.
