RichmondRail GPAC to announce candidate endorsements!

We at are pleased to share this invitation from the RichmondRail Political Action Committee (RRail GPAC), a separate organization that shares our vision for rail on Richmond.

RRail GPAC candidate <a href=''><a href=''>question</a></a>naire” align=”right”></a>The RichmondRail political action committee (GPAC) asked every Houston City Council <a href=candidate point blank: “Do you support Rail on Richmond from Main to Cummins?” This Tuesday evening we will all find out who said yes!

The RRail GPAC will announce endorsements in 11 out of 15 races for Houston City Council and Controller. Candidates were asked the following questions (pdf):

  • Do you support Rail on Richmond from Main to Cummins?
  • Will you vote to approve the franchise agreements necessary to allow for the construction of rail on Richmond from Main to Cummins?
  • Will you work for, and vote to fund, such improvements along Richmond Avenue in order to make our new light rail system truly neighborhood and pedestrian friendly?
  • Will you partner with Metro and the Community to develop meaningful programs to mitigate the negative impacts of the light rail projects?

Please plan to join us at Maria Selma Restaurant on Tuesday, October 16, from 5:30 to 6:30 pm as we come together to find out which candidates support our issue and will work hard on our behalf. Enjoy a festive beverage, meet the candidates, and stay for dinner!

We want to show the candidates that we value their support, and we have also invited the media. Your presence will help us make an impact!
