Suggestions please!

I am in the process of formulating a list of questions to ask of the candidates that have entered the city council race for Shelly Sekula-Gibb's old seat. I have a few issues that I want to touch upon, but I'm throwing it open to you, my readers (both of you!), to suggest things you'd like to see asked and answered by those who would represent the voters on City Council.

Issues I plan on touching on:

  • Revenue Caps
  • Appraisal Caps
  • "Annexation for specific purpose" agreements
  • The METRO board's unelected status and it's power to tax and condemn property.
  • HPD manpower and how it should be addressed.
  • The HPD police chief and how the candidate thinks he has done his job.
  • The mayor and how he has done his job.
  • Spending priorities by the COH
  • Houston's failure to implement an integrated and coordinated communications system for emergency communications.
  • HPD's chase policy
  • HPD's TASER policy
  • HPD' overtime crackdown
  • Mayor White's attempt to impose pollution controls on plants outside the CoH.
  • The City's sanctuary policies.
  • How to address the CoH's burgeoning crime problem
Anything you would like to see asked?

I don't live in Houston, so I don't really have any interest in what goes on in an area in which I have no voting privileges. It especially irritates me that Houston can cram IAH noise down our throats, but we have no voice in how they run the airport or ruin property values adjacent to Bush International. (Tho I do pray daily that a plane will drop on top of NHC!) muahahahaa.

A question to ask of all candidates:
Can you "prove up" your endorsement list?

What were your greatest failures in the past 20 years? Successes?
