Sunnyside is the Only Traditional Black Early Voting Location in the Top 10; The Race for Mayor Should End in Runoff Election


The early voting numbers have spiked upward in Houston, Texas over the last three days. On Monday, October 28, 2019, a total of 10,318 Houstonians showed up in person to vote. On Tuesday, October 29, 2019, a total of 10,358 Houstonians showed up in person to vote. And on yesterday, Wednesday, October 30, 2019, a total of 12,209 Houstonians showed up in person to vote. The 2019 City of Houston Race for Mayor is more than likely headed into a runoff. Mayor Sylvester Turner, Bill King, Tony Buzbee, Kendall Baker, Sue Lovell, Dwight Boykins, Victoria Romero, Johnny "J.T." Taylor, Naoufal Houjami, Demetria Smith, Derrick Broze and Roy J. Vasquez are all running for Mayor of Houston, Texas on Tuesday, November 5, 2019. These are the only choices Houstonians have this election cycle, so it is incumbent upon every Houstonian to cast their ballot for the candidate who comes closest to representing their ideals, principles, beliefs, and values.

In-Person Voting in Houston is Trending Upward over Last Three Days as Early Voting Draws to a Close on Friday, November 1, 2019

AUBREY R. TAYLOR REPORTS©

Contrary to the polls and what's being peddled through campaigns, at the end of the night on Tuesday, November 5, 2019, what Houstonians are going to hear is that the race for Mayor of Houston is heading to a Saturday, December 14, 2019, Runoff Election. Who's going to be in the runoff? Well, that's another question altogether. Since no Houston Mayor has ever been defeated after serving just one term in office in Houston, Texas, a lot of folks have Mayor Sylvester Turner as the odds on favorite to win his bid for re-election. A recent University of Houston Poll even suggested that Turner could not only win but alluded to the possibility of him winning the race for mayor outright without a runoff -- ain't going to happen. While there is a remote possibility that Mayor Sylvester Turner could receive a robust turnout on Tuesday, November 5, 2019, and outpace his challengers. However, it's highly unlikely that the surge in "ELECTION DAY TURNOUT" would be so vast that it would propel Mayor Sylvester Turner to garner a majority of the vote, which is what he would need to avoid a runoff. READ ARTICLE HERE: "The poll, published on the eve of early voting, shows Turner with 43.5 percent support among likely voters, followed by lawyer and businessman Tony Buzbee at 23.4 percent. Bill King, Turner’s 2015 runoff opponent, trails with 7.8 percent, while 6.8 percent of voters said they support Councilman Dwight Boykins."

IGNORE THE MEDIA REPORTS

The stark reality is this, with only one day of early voting left, after today, only 88,822 Houstonians have gone to the polls to vote in person. These votes are split among twelve candidates running for mayor. Every candidate in the race for mayor has received some votes. Thus, to believe that Mayor Turner is about to win his re-election bid without a runoff, you would have to believe that somewhere in the neighborhood of 45,000 of the 88,822 votes that have been cast so far (during early voting) have been cast for Mayor Turner. Look, there's absolutely no way on earth that any rational, or open-minded political pundit, strategist, or analyst truly believes that this is the case. You have to remember that, sometimes, political operatives peddle ideas that the outcome of a race is certain in their effort to influence the eventual outcome. I hope I'm making sense; but if not, let me be more clear. When the outcome of a political race appears to be certain, people are more likely to respond in one of two ways. Some will ask themselves, "If the candidate I like doesn't stand a chance, why should I even go vote?" And others will sometimes say to themselves, "Well, if the candidate I like has already won anyway, why should I waste my time going to vote?" Look, as the publisher of Houston Business Connections Newspaper, I'm imploring all Houstonians to "IGNORE THE POLLS AND GO VOTE" on Tuesday, November 5, 2019.

Early Voting Numbers on the Rise in Houston; Carla Brailey Stands Out in Crowded Field of Houston City Council District D Candidates


Dr. Carla Brailey has received the blessing of Pastor Bill Lawson, a civil rights icon in the race for Houston City Council District D. On top of receiving the blessing and support of Pastor Lawson, she's also been endorsed by Giberto Hinojosa, Chair of the Texas Democratic Party in the Houston City Council District D race. The race for Houston City Council District D will be determined by African American voters for the most part; but trying to choose between Carla Brailey, Jerome Provost, Ken Moore, Carolyn Evans-Shabazz, T. "Nissi" Hamilton, Mike Grissom, Travis McGee, Brad "Scarface" Jordan, Dontrell L. Montgomery, Anthony Kirk Allen, Dennis Griffin, Rashad Cave, Terrill D. Thomas, Marlon A. Christian, and Andrew C. Burks, Jr. has many in this predominantly African American district scratching their heads. 

The Early Voting Numbers are Beginning to Pick Up as the Early Voting Period Comes to a Close; Brailey Intensifies Effort to Woo Voters

AUBREY R. TAYLOR REPORTS©

The number of overall voters is increasing, and the number of African American voters showing up at the polls is also beginning to spike as the early voting period prepares to come to a close on Friday, November 1, 2019. In case you haven't been keeping up with the daily turnout numbers I will do a quick recap of what has transpired so far. On the first day of early voting, a total of 7,973 early voters showed up to cast their ballot in person. On the second day of early voting, a total of 9,314 early voters showed up to cast their ballot in person. On the third day of early voting, a total of 8,919 voters showed up to cast their ballot in person. On the fourth day of early voting, a total of 9,261 early voters showed up to cast their ballot in person. On the fifth day of early voting, a total of 8,777 early voters showed up to cast their ballot in person. On the sixth day of early voting, a total of  7,864 early voters showed up to cast their ballot in person. On the seventh day of early voting, a total of 3,829 voters showed up to cast their ballot in person. On the eighth day of early voting, a total of 10,318 voters showed up to cast their ballot in person. And on the ninth day of early voting, a total of 10,358 voters showed up to cast their ballot in person. So, all total, through the first nine days of early voting 76,613 Houstonians have gone to the polls to cast their ballot in person. What about the "ABSENTEE MAIL BALLOTS" returned? I'm glad you asked. As of today, a total of 11,356 "ABSENTEE MAIL BALLOTS" have been returned to the Harris County Clerk's Office.

DR. BRAILEY WANTS YOUR VOTE

I haven't known Dr. Carla Brailey for all of my life or anything like that. I actually met her back during the 2018 Midterm Election cycle when she was crisscrossing and making moves in Harris County, Texas and other parts of the region doing her very best to make sure that "DULY-QUALIFIED" Democrats were elected in her capacity as Vice-Chair of the Texas Democratic Party. Her efforts and the efforts of many other hardworking Democrats were commendable and effective as Democrats swept through Harris County during an election cycle that many were expecting to favor Republicans. So, in essence, this hardworking life-long Democrat is a rising star in the Democratic Party. Now, while I've been studying politics for almost thirty years, I have never run across anyone with the energy, compassion, wisdom, and understanding of politics possessed by Dr. Carla Brailey. So, just so you know, as a body, Houston Business Connections Newspaper no longer issues outright endorsements, but you can rest assured, that if we did, I truly believe in my heart, that Dr. Carla Brailey would have been overwhelmingly endorsed by the vast majority of the members our readership board. With that said, please know that Dr. Carla Brailey is one of the only candidates running for Houston City Council District D, who values, respects, appreciates, and desires to have the vote of every Houston City Council District D voter on Tuesday, November 5, 2019.



DR. BRAILEY IS AN ADVOCATE

Dr. Carla D. Brailey is a candidate for Houston City Council District D, which is a district open seat for the November 5, 2019, municipal election. She is a political advocate, educational consultant, assistant professor of sociology at Texas Southern University, Vice-Chair of the Texas Democratic Party, and a proud mother.

DR. BRAILEY IS OUTSTANDING

An outstanding visionary and innovator, Dr. Brailey has played a pivotal role in establishing the framework and foundation for long-term success in educational institutions, non-profit organizations, and government agencies. Throughout her career, she has been repeatedly sought out as a consultant and subject matter expert for community, political and educational institutions such as Mayor Sylvester Turner’s Transition Team, Sankofa Research Institute, Project Rowhouses, the Imani School, Harmony Science Academy, Andrew Rankin Memorial Chapel at Howard University, judicial campaigns, and various small businesses and corporations. While serving in Mayor Fenty’s administration of Washington, DC, Carla was tapped to lead DC’s Office of Community Affairs, managing a $3 million budget, serving as the mayor’s liaison for the 2010 Census, and overseeing nine community relations and constituent services offices in the nation’s capital. Dr. Brailey is often called upon to address concerns related to social justice, diversity and inclusion, Black women and empowerment, strategic management, organizational development, staff training, curriculum planning, and program creation.

Texas Southern University and the University of Houston are both within the boundaries of District D. Any candidate hoping to win District D must be able to run an effective campaign in Sunnyside and Third Ward to have any chance at winning this largely African American populated district.
