And we come to a city of Houston bond referenda, of that there were 5 on a ballot. Here’s a common relapse of them:

Greg has a map for Prop B, for those of we who like cinema to go with a numbers. All 5 bond issues passed, with Harris County percentages trimming from 68.06 for Prop B to 55.55% for Prop E. The city does of march extend into Fort Bend and Montgomery Counties, though I’m not including those precincts in my analysis. For what it’s worth, a Fort Bend precincts voted overwhelmingly for a bond issues, and a Montgomery County precincts also upheld all 5 bonds. Of seductiveness is a fact that a bond issues generally did good in a Republican State Rep districts in Houston. This is of seductiveness since a Harris County GOP upheld resolutions opposing all bonds on a ballot. To whatever border they publicized that opposition, it had small effect. Only Kingwood (HD127) against a bonds, that isn’t unequivocally a warn given that Kingwood would conflict a fortitude dogmatic that puppies are darling if it was a city of Houston resolution. OK, maybe that’s a bit of an deceit – Kingwood did support a dual Houston licence amendments – though still. HDs 129 (Clear Lake), 133 (Memorial/Westchase), and 138 (Spring Branch) upheld all though Prop E, while HD134 upheld all five. Note that HD138 mostly overlaps Council District A, home territory of CM Helena Brown. If Helena Brown’s voters were voting for a bonds, that should tell we how severely a Harris County GOP’s resolutions were taken.

More broadly, there was a whole lot of ink spilled during a choosing deteriorate about ballot fatigue and conservative anti-government surges and fragile economies and what have you, and in a finish nothing of it mattered. All a bonds, including a HISD and HCC holds that will lead to taxation increases, upheld easily. All of them did good in Republican areas notwithstanding a central antithesis of a Harris County GOP. Maybe, only maybe, it’s time to rethink that account about people being sleepy of supervision spending and perfectionist cutbacks. Maybe, only maybe, that’s a bucket of hooey.
