Every 2-year election cycle Progressive complain about their choices of candidates. Many groups are now doing something about it. One of those groups is Brand New Congress. And that group has several candidates running in the Democratic Primaries in the Houston area and throughout the country.
Today we are honored to have several of these candidates with us.
Adrienne Bell is a native Houstonian, a mother, and grandmother who rose from humble beginnings to become her family’s first-generation college graduate. She went on to obtain a Masters degree and is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Education Administration. She is running in TX-14.
Darnell Jones a retired naval officer with 24 years of service; who says he will vote for jobs, education, equity, and equality for ALL the citizens. He is running in TX-02.
Letitia Plummer grew up in Houston watching her father make a difference in people’s lives every day through his dental practice, and it was his example that inspired her to pursue her own career. Today, she is a small businesswoman on a mission to give people great smiles with her two successful dental practices in TX-22.
