Then There Were Two

Now the State Convention will be interesting. Glen Maxey gave me a nice little birthday surprise and announced his candidacy on Monday.

Patrick Franklin, a candidate for the state house in district 7, broke the story and found Maxey for Chair and Mario at Latinos for Texas had some quick thoughts.

The site is interesting and has a podcast were Maxey talks about his successes and what detractors may say, but the site is more than a campaign site, it’s a tool. Maxey’s site for state party chair is what his career has been—selfless.

Regardless of who you support, there are tools on the site on how to be effective at your caucuses, how to move up the convention ladder, and a place to have input in the direction of the party.

These are the kinds of things that are important to know and can be confusing for even seasoned veterans of the process. The site and campaign highlight Maxey’s commitment to making change from the grassroots up with sections for ideas, supporters, and (gasp!) grassroots.

The candidates for June 7th are Boyd Richie, Glen Maxey, and supposedly Charlie Urbina-Jones. Urbina-Jones is the only one who has not formally stated his intent and there is always a possibility of a rogue candidate showing up at the convention.
