Filings show Ellis has no Dem. challenger; Wright is out
By SHERI COHEN DARBONNE
Monlrose Voice Editor
Rodney Ellis, who resigned from
Houston City Council to run for
Craig Washington's Dist. 13 seat
in theTexas senate, will not be facing a challenger in the March
Democratic primary. Several state
representatives from Houston, including Al Edwards (Dist. 146)
and Larry Evans (Dist. 1471, and
Harold Dutton (Dist. 142), who
had been mentioned as possible
contenders in the Democratic primary for the state senate race,
filed instead for re-election in their
own Texas House districts by the
fi:00 p.m. filing deadline Tuesday,
State Rep. Debra Danburg (Dist.
137), whose district includes
Montrose, Heights and parts of
the Greenway Plaza and Highland Village areas, had previously
re-filed for her house seat, urging
other representatives to do the
same. One Republican, Bill Batts,
filed for the senate seat.
Danburg and Dutton both have
no challengers, withnooneelsefil-
ing in either the Democratic or Republican primaries in their districts. Edwards faces Larry
Blackmon and Sam Jackson in
the primary, with one Republican.
Naomi Cox Andrews, also filing
Evans, who reportedly was considering the senate race and, later,
a judicial race under the district
selection method, apparently
waited until the last moments before the deadline to file for re-election. "I don't know for sure if he
has (filed for re-election) yet, but
I'm pretty sure he's going to," an
aide in Evans' office said Tuesday
Another surprise came Tuesday
when state Rep. Brad Wright
(Dist. 134), the conservative Republican credited by gay/lesbian
rights leaders with spurring much
of the anti-gay action in the 71st
state legislature, did not re-file for
his position. Wright is the author
of the controversial language in
Subsection 2.03(h) of SB 959, the
omnibus AIDS bill. His district includes parts of southwest Houston, West University Place and
Two Republicans, Bob Higley, a
former Wright aide said to have
Wright's backing, and Chad
McMillan and one Democrat, Sue
A. Schecter. filed for Wright's seat.
There was some speculation
Tuesday that Wright's delay
might have indicated a last minute consideration of the Republican gubernatorial primary.
Wright denied being interested in
the race for governor, saying he
planned to devote full time to his
law practice after his term ends
late this year. Wright, who has
held his house seat for seven
terms, said he will consider other
political races in the future.
At-large council member Eleanor Tinsley filed for the Precinct 4
position in Harris County Commissioners Court being given up
by E.A. "Squatty" Lyons. In the
Democratic primary, she faces two
relatively unknown candidates.
James Driver and Carmen Orta.
Eight Republicans filed for the
seat, including Gary L. Milstead,
Clyde Theiss, Jerry E verso le,

will face incumbent Republican
Jon Lindsay in the November general election.
In a less-than-surprising development, Ray Hill, outgoing president ofthe Houston Gay and Lesbian Political Caucus, was among
the last-minute filers on Tuesday.
Hill filed as a candidate for Justice
ofthe Peace, Precinct 1 in the Dem
ocratic primary, challenging in
cumbent David Palronella. who
was appointed to the post last
year. No one filed in the Republican primary for that race.
Hill had announced his intentions to HGLPC in August, and
was granted a temporary exemption from a caucus bylaw provision that prohibits officers from

John Paul Barnich. chair of the
board of AIDS Foundation Houston, filed in the Democratic primary for the judicial election in Harris County's 314th district.
Barnich was among several challengers in the judicial districts
who filed in spite of a federal
judge's order that the county hold
a non-partisan election for 26 dis
trict judgeships in May. Most incumbents also filed for re-election.
Officials of the Democratic and
Republican parties compiled primary ballots in the 36 elections affected by the federal order anyway, in case the order is overturned or stayed. II the primary is
held, Barnich will face David
