So once again, we are going out to get involved in the process.
Our goal is to remind our busy community that there is an election and to help educate kids on the political process, by asking all City of Houston candidates some very non-partisan, non-political questions.
This is not for political purposes or endorsement. This is however, for kids. Aylen (9), Joe (8), Senia (7) and Brooke (6) created the questions and I edited for clarity.
1. What does a mayor/controller/city council member do?
2. What do you do to get elected?
3. What do you like to do in Houston?
4. What is your favorite thing about Houston?
5. What is your favorite Houston annual event?
Over the next month, we will feature answers from candidates for all positions and districts. And we have some great ones! (If you are looking for a kid friendly overview of the City of Houston elections, go HERE!)
