...And they won...


At the June 5th meeting members were presented several designs for the new logo,
and the one below was selected. We note that none of them included the letters GLBT.
It took 30 years to add the "B" & "T" and now all the letters are gone...at least in the logo.

But from the other side of the viewpoint, it's now more inclusive as it
(without saying so) includes the other alphabet of letters QIA+++++

On June 13th the Caucus and several other groups sponsored The Pride Forum, for District C Candidates

There was some thoughtful and well written discussions on Facebook
about the day that I want to share, posted by Judson Dunn and Noel Freeman,
with others chiming in

Okay, I don't want to make this "all about me" but I've seen very few photos
from this event. And for the award I got Sara Fernandez grabbed a video.
Maria Gonzalez introduced me.

Election Endorsements

It's not always one big happy family. Former Caucus Board Member Jack Valinski
took issue publicly (on Facebook) regarding the Caucus President Mike Webb
endorsing in the At Large 4 race, for Bill Baldwin, when the membership endorsement
was for 'no endorsement.' And the Screening chair/Board Member Brandon Mack
endorsed contrary to the membership endorsement (Ashton Woods over Sallie Alcorn).

This is a violation of the Bylaws:
7.09 PUBLIC ADVOCACY: No elected trustee or board member of the Caucus can
publicly advocate or support the candidacy of a candidate not endorsed by the
Caucus against a candidate endorsed by the Houston GLBT Political Caucus PAC.
Such endorsement constitutes an act of malfeasance as defined in the bylaws.

The discussion immediately side-tracked to the stance that everyone who disagreed
with what those two members had done was racist, and the actual issue got little
to no exchange of ideas. And not a word was said about this at the next meeting.
