A little change in the campaign calendar worth of note: The fundraiser originally planned for 27 September will happen the afternoon of the following Saturday, 4 October, instead. The Loes, those incredible perennial stalwarts of Houston's Peace & Justice community, have graciously consented to host us yet again.
Two candidates for statewide office are scheduled to come to Houston from elsewhere and appear at this event: Railroad Commission candidate Martina Salinas and Agriculture Commissioner candidate Kenneth Kendrick. Kendrick has actually seen the failure of our state's agriculture policy and its devastating effect first-hand, having blown the whistle on a peanut processing plant that was giving away free salmonella with every package of peanuts.
So there are two big Green events coming up soon in Houston: the candidates' forum at Trinity Episcopal Church on 22 September, and this catered affair on 4 October. You and your contributions will be welcome at both.
