Bill White is up with his first campaign ad for the fall election, and it paints Houston as a magical kingdom where taxes go down, crime rates plummet and hurricanes are told to get the fuck out of here.
It's doubtful we'll see the ad on the air much here, so savor it on the net, as you sit in your Houston home, not paying taxes, not fearing crime, and being very, very thankful you have a gubernatorial candidate who works for you and not just works to get himself elected, like that other guy.
Because, apparently, you must know this: Bill White is not working to get elected governor.
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
