It looks like Rick and Melissa Noriega have a couple of events this week - separately.
State Rep Noriega is having an informal Q & A with all interested parties this coming Thursday. He’s a really nice guy and I’ll bet there will be lots of interesting discussion. If you missed Rick and Melissa’s Lovefest in Fort Bend County earlier this month, I’ll bet you can make up for it by going to the Q & A. Rick promises that there will be “free-wheeling discussion” of his time in Afghanistan, running the hurricane relief effort at the George R. Brown Convention Center, Operation Jump Start, and just about anything going on in the state legislature. The meeting looks like a winner.

Then the day before Rick’s event at The Four Seasons, Melissa is having a fundraiser for her campaign for Position 3 on the Houston City Council at Café Adobe in downtown Houston. Former State Rep Melissa Noriega made lots of friends and contacts while serving in the legislature, and lots of them are turning out to support her in the fundraiser. I got this flyer about the event in the mail yesterday. It has all the information you need (same thing, you can read it better if you click on the image).
So really, if you are at all near the Greater Houston area you have two great opportunities to meet these two very singular people. Oh, and by the way, if you are going to Melissa’s event, don’t forget your checkbook. Campaigns cost lots of money to run and the field is getting pretty big.
By the way, if you haven’t heard Kuffner’s interview with Melissa you can download it here. Kuffner says that it is his intention to get interviews from all of the candidates in this race. After listening to Melissa’s interview, though, I think he can stop. No one can top the quality of this woman’s ideas about what she’d like to do in and for Houston.
