Don’t give up on Texas yet.

I live in the suburbs of Houston so I haven’t followed closely what she has stated, but I read the other day that she has issued a call for budget cuts in city departments including the mayor’s office. My understanding is that the new mayor had been fiscally conservative as a councilwoman.

Although Houston proper, Austin and the valley are blue, most of the rest of Texas is still very RED.

The problem with the reasonable sounding "socially liberal, but fiscally conservative" claim is that liberal socialism requires massive taxes and spending to support it.

I don't think that "socially liberal, but fiscally conservative" is possible.

Was she on the council? I thought she had been city comptroller for several years but maybe she was on the council also.
