Transcript NOVEMBER 16, 2001 • HOUSTON VOICE THANK YOU Mayor Lee Brown, State Representative Garnet Coleman and Council Member Annise Parker. In the world of politics we have many friends. In the No On City Prop 2 campaign these three leaders stood out as heroes. Mayor Lee Brown passionately articulated our message, raised over $100,000 for the campaign, and opened many doors to the corridors of establishment power not ordinarily available on an issue of gay rights. Mayor Brown truly understands that health care for the families of gay and lesbian city employees is a family value. State Representative Garnet Coleman stepped up to the plate as Campaign Co-Chair when it mattered the most - when the fallout from the World Trade Center attacks threatened our campaign budget. He gave $5,000, and raised almost 10 times that much in checks and in-kind donations. Garnet always took our calls and - most importantly - never said the word "no." Garnet is not only a good friend, but also a leader and an inspiration when it comes to building true coalitions. Council Member Annise Parker - what is there to say that we already don't know? Annise spent $50,000 and risked her own seat on City Council to stand up for gay and lesbian families, including her own. She endured - with dignity and grace - public insults from Prop 2 proponents, political candidates, talk radio hosts and even anti-gay colleagues. Annise, you have the love, respect and admiration of your community and all of Houston. Friendship is a two-way street. When Garnet Coleman and Annise Parker are ready for higher office, we must stand up for them just as they stood up for us in this campaign. And on December 1, let's all stand up for our mayor: Re-Elect Mayor Lee Brown Paid foe by Grant Martin Consulting P O Box 667307, Houston. TX 77266-7307 713-523-1762. franl@grantmartinconsulting.com
