Tis better to have run and lost than to have never run at all.   

I have been a candidate many times while trying to offer a few ideas. I was an early advocate for single-member council districts and term limits which would offer more opportunities for  minorities.  

Occasionally I would offer a novel idea.  In 1970 - 1971 there were eight white men on Houston city council.  Five of the eight were: Curly Miller, Frank Mancuso, Frank Mann, and Jim McConn who would replace Lee McLemore.  

In 1978 - 1979, the mayor was Jim McConn and four of the councilmen were: Larry McKaskle, Louis Macey, Frank Mancuso, and Frank Mann.  

Do you see my point?  Why should one letter have one half of the city council slots? What about the other 25 letters in the alphabet?   

"To all those who said that I and many other under-financed candidates were losers, perennials, and fringe candidates I say to you: competition is good for America.

CHRONICLE LAUDS HCAD                                                                                                  
OUTHOUSE AS TOP WORKPLACE                                                                                                    

The Houston Chronicle named HCAD as the 9th TOP WORKPLACE in 2018 and HCAD proudly displays eleven signs from 2017 and 2018 from the entrance at 13013 Northwest Freeway to the restrooms.    

This promotion of The Houston Chronicle is unprofessional, unethical, and perhaps illegal.  Do you see advertising at your place of worship, city hall or any of the other Harris County Buildings?    

Does this impropriety prevent The Chronicle from doing any investigative reporting on HCAD?  Will HCAD value Chronicle properties in a fair and objective manner?   

After Ann Harris Bennett took office in 2017 as Harris County Tax Assessor, Collector, the Chronicle's improvement value at 4747 Southwest Freeway was reduced to 29 cents per…


EDUCATION: Jack Josey Terence was born in Houston Texas. He attended Montrose, SIdney Lanier, and San Jacinto High.  He expected to be named "Least Likely To Succeed" but classmates did not know who he was. This obscurity or notoriety has followed him through many campaigns. While attending San Jacinto, Jack worked summers for Tax Collector Carl Smith and earned $200 monthly. He graduated from the University of Houston and has an honorable discharge from The Army Reserve.  

PEACE CORPS VOLUNTEER: Jack was attending South Texas College of Law when he was selected as one of the first Peace Corps Volunteers from Houston.  You could tell  South Texas students as they had rusty stains on their shirts since many classes were held in the YMCA basement on Louisiana St. with plumbing pipes overhead.  Jack was a school teacher in The Philippines for two years. If you ever meet a Filipino who says "ain't" or "yawl." Jack might have been the teacher.
