*It’s time for a change, we suppose. We can only assume that’s why long-time Congresswoman Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee is joining the already crowded Houston mayoral race.
“Sheila Jackson Lee wants to come home to be your mayor for the city of Houston,” Jackson Lee said at a church event Sunday. “I will not be able to do it without each and every one of you.”
Jackson Lee’s comments were live-streamed by City Cathedral Church and shared Monday morning by Urban Reform, a Houston online publication.
As ABC13 notes, “Jackson Lee enters a mayoral contest that is already well underway. The early frontrunner has been State Sen. John Whitmire, D-Houston, and his competitors include Chris Hollins, the former Harris County clerk; Robert Gallegos, a member of the Houston City Council; Gilbert Garcia, former chairman of the city’s Metropolitan Transit Authority; and Amanda Edwards, a former City Council member.”
