At-Large City Council Member and candidate for Mayor Peter Brown filed paperwork today to secure a spot on the ballot for the Mayoral election in November. Brown, who officially announced his candidacy in February, has been running an active, grassroots campaign focused on turning out volunteers and voters for nearly six months now.
“I’ve got a vision for Houston’s future with safer streets, an expanding economy and smart growth that improves our quality of life,” said Brown. “My campaign is building real momentum and I’m confident voters will respond to my plan for an even better Houston this November.”
Last week, Brown was the first candidate to begin running ads on television, taking his message of cutting crime, reducing waste in our city budget and creating jobs directly to the voters. His ads were widely praised for their clear, convincing presentation. Brown’s commercials will continue to run through the election in November.
In addition, Peter Brown’s grassroots field campaign has made significant inroads into communities all over Houston. The campaign has contacted tens of thousands of voters to encourage them to support Peter Brown, and this operation will continue to grow as we head towards November.
“Campaigns are won with a strong, well-communicated message and a robust grassroots operation, and that’s exactly what we’ve got,” said Brown campaign manager Lucinda Guinn. “We have the resources we need and our campaign continue to focus on taking Peter’s message to Houston voters.”
