HOUSTON – Mayoral candidate Ben Hall today called on incumbent Annise Parker “share our contrasting ideas and vision for the future of this great city through a series of debates” Three debates should be held after Labor Day but prior to the start of early voting and three additional debates after the start of early voting and before our November election, he wrote in a hand-delivered letter. “Too much is at stake for us not to share our plans for Houston with her citizens, and I hope you agree promptly to debating six times this fall,” Hall said. “I have instructed my staff to contact your campaign staff to begin discussions on the details,” he said. “Please accept this invitation.”
Born into a family of meager financial means, Benjamin Hall, III has experienced firsthand the struggle that accompanies difficult economic times. The longtime trial lawyer has flirted with politics before, almost jumping into the mayor’s race when Parker was running for her first term.
