Houston City Elections - Michael Kubosh is the Clear Choice in At-Large #3 Race - Last Day for Early Voting
Today is the last day for early voting for the Houston City Council run-off election. If you don't vote today at any of the various early voting centers, you can vote Saturday at your precinct location. This election gives Republicans a real shot at reshaping the Houston City Council with a more conservative look. The election will decide the fate of three seats on city council. Also up for grabs on Saturday will be two seats on the Houston Community College Board. Let's turn City Council Red!
There is a clear choice in each of these run-off spots to build a more effective Houston City Council.
As the run-off for Houston City Council, At-Large Position #3 race shifts into top gear, Michael Kubosh comes out of the gate fast with a key endorsement from the Houston Chronicle. Kubosh was the top vote earner in this month's general election but faces a run-off challenge from HCDOE Board Member Roy Morales (who wants you to know he is a Lt. Colonel, by the way...).
It is good to see the Chronicle has found its voice on this race. They couldn't be bothered to make a pick in the general election, but they got this one right in some ways and not right in others. Read more »
Update: Due to an error on the Houston City Secretary's website, this agenda item was erroneously listed as passed, but is instead tabled until next week. We regret the error but continue to support its passage. The article has been modified to correct the current status of this ordinance.
Three months ago, TexasGOPVote reported that the City of Houston was looking at passing an ordinance to crack down on city contractors who engage in the unethical and illegal practice of wage theft from their workers. City Council is poised to pass an ordinance that is being called "precedent-setting" by supporters of the effort to stop wage theft. Houston would be the first Texas city to pass such an ordinance.

Houston City Elections - Michael Kubosh Brings Conservative Values and Broad-based Support to Race for City Council
It is time for conservatives to stand up in Houston and take control of our city's future. We have an opportunity to add a true conservative to Houston's City Council who also has a proven ability to build a coalition of supporters to take on issues like Houston's former red light camera program and Mayor Parker's anti-feeding ordinance.
It takes a unique individual to be able to effectively work with such a wide and diverse group of people. It is a skill that could be very valuable to a member of the Houston City Council. I sat down this week with Michael Kubosh, candidate for Houston City Council, At Large Position 3, to talk with him about who he is and why he wants to become a member of council for this great city.

The City of Houston's city elections are coming up quickly. This election gives conservatives an opportunity to send a serious message to Battleground Texas that we are intent on keeping Texas red and will take action to do so. What is the action we can take now? Get out and vote!
Houston is a fine example of what happens to local government when left to years of liberal control and run-away spending. Our pension programs are driving the city's balance sheet to looking more like Detroit than Houston. It is getting to where you need a four-wheel drive vehicle in order to safely navigate our streets. Police response times have moved well beyond critical as our dwindling number of officers are continuously stretched thinner and thinner. Mayor Parker and City Controller Ron Green are spending money like their role model, Barack Obama. Read more »
NC Police Threaten to Arrest Church Volunteers for Feeding the Homeless - Kubosh Fighting this Insanity in Houston
Throughout the history of Christianity, churches have been involved in helping people who are down on their luck or in a bad situation. Often this help is provided in the form of food and shelter. Apparently local governments are somehow threatened by this philanthropy because it means people are not dependent on the government. Despite the fact that philanthropy and charity are much more efficient and cost effective methods of delivery of services to the needy, local governments are taking action to stop this.
Imagine you or a loved one finds yourself homeless. When one puts themselves in a homeless person's shoes, what's the first thing that usually comes to mind? If you're like me, the first thing that I think of is, how are they going to eat? The second thought that enters my mind is where will they sleep?
So back to that first thought, the food thing. As I've never been homeless, I can imagine that in the city of Houston, lots of homeless people are left to beg on street corners for money to buy food. Others may go into food establishments where they are often turned away by the proprietors of the businesses. Some might even dig through the garbage to find leftovers. There have been cases where this has happened resulting in food poisoning ( so much for protecting the homeless!!) Others might be fortunate enough to have food brought to them by various non-profit groups or religious groups to help stave off hunger pangs. Or at least they used to be that fortunate. Read more »
