African Americans are basically a "NO-SHOW" as the battle for the HCCS Trustee for District IX comes to a close. As of today, only (79) seventy-nine voters have bothered to show up at the Hiram Clarke Multi-Service Center located at 3810 W. Fuqua Street, Houston, 77045 through the first (4) four days of early voting. "This location has traditionally been a dependable stronghold for Democratic candidates," says Aubrey R. Taylor, publisher of Houston Business Connections Magazine©. "But this year is different -- turnout is dismal in the Black community," he says. "It's almost like our people are asleep at the wheel and just don't care about this election for some reason -- and we have two Black candidates (ONE A LIFE-LONG DEMOCRAT AND THE OTHER A REPUBLICAN) doing battle -- what a shame!"
SUNNYSIDE EVEN WORSE
Sunnyside can make or break an election for a Black candidate. But in this election, voters in Sunnyside are just not excited, engaged, or motivated to show up -- at least not so far. Through the first (4) four days of early voting only (35) thirty-five voters have shown up at the polls to vote early at the Sunnyside Mult-Service Center located at located at 9314 Cullen Boulevard, Houston, 77051 thus far.

A MESSAGE FROM DR. PRETTA VANDIBLE STALLWORTH
Saturday, December 9, 2017, Runoff Election Race between Sergio Lira and Jesse A. Rodriguez for HISD District III Analysis by Aubrey R. Taylor, Publisher of HBC Magazine©
RUNOFF RACE ANALYSIS BY AUBREY R. TAYLOR: “The race for Houston ISD Board Trustee for District III between Sergio Lira and Jesse A. Rodriguez can be won by either candidate in December. This is perhaps the most evenly matched “Runoff Race” on the ballot. Back on Tuesday, November 7, 2017, in the General Election there were four candidates in the race. Here’s how they finished: Jesse A. Rodriguez finished first to head the pack with 1,241 votes for 39.85% of the vote. Finishing second to force the runoff was Sergio Lira with 1,051 votes for 33.75% of the vote. Rodolfo (Rudy) Reyes finished third with 438 votes for 14.07% of the vote. And Carlos Perrett finished fourth with 384 votes for 12.33% of the vote. Trying to get voters in this district to turn back out will be a major challenge for both Lira and Rodriguez in this race. However, as I mentioned in the “ELECTION DAY EDITION” of Houston Business Connections Magazine© Sergio Lira is the candidate to watch in this race. Hey, this district has more than 55,222 registered voters, but only 3,504 chose to show up during the General Election – nobody knows for sure what’s going to happen in this one.”
EVERY VOTE WILL COUNT!!!
"Don't forget that early voting is expected to be very low in all three races on Saturday, December 9, 2017, in the Runoff Election for HCC Trustee for District IX, HISD Trustee for District I, and the race for HISD Trustee for District III. So every vote will count!!!"
