Jenifer's Running Again!
Posted by Monica Roberts at 12:00 AM
I am happy to hear that my H-town homegirl Jenifer Rene Pool is going
to make another run at Houston history in this election cycle and
attempt to become the first transperson elected to public office here.
I chronicled Jenifer's run for an at large council seat in the 2011
election cycle, and she kicked off her campaign on Valentine's Day for
the City Council at large Position 3 seat
Jenifer had a crowded ten candidate field to navigate in her 2011 city
wide race but garnered 7,104 votes to finish seventh.
It's two years later and she is gearing up to chase history once
again. For those of you in the Houston city limits and you want
things to get better for trans peeps here, this is a way to help make
You have more than enough time before November 5 to get busy getting
registered to vote if you aren't already or double checking your
registrations in advance of that election.
Jenifer is also going to need your time, sweat equity, some cash out
of your wallets and purses, and basically you to do whatever you can
to help get one of our own peeps elected to the Houston City Council
Here's hoping that Election Night 2013 has a much better result and we
are watching her make a victory speech.that night.
