Wednesday afternoon members of the Houston Police Officers’ Union began interviewing potential candidates for the Houston City Council race in District A.
Visibly missing was the incumbent Helena Brown.
Officials with the union say because of the candidates stance on police related issues they will not endorse her in her November 2013 bid for reelection.
Ray Hunt, president of HPOU, says, “our PAC met today and we have endorsed former Council Member Brenda Stardig and Mike Knox.”
Hunt says both of those individuals (dual endorsement) would be suitable candidates to replace Brown.
The union president did not give specifics on why they snubbed the incumbent.
