Texas House Representative Charlie Howard, a supporter of Tom DeLay, a friend of polluters and failed job creation plans will throw his cowboy hat in the District 22 Senate race. Can you say Tom DeLay lite?
Mayor Wallace credits several local politicians with helping to line up the funding, including DeLay and state Representative Charlie Howard, a Sugar Land Republican. "Tom and I are basically a tag team," Howard explains. "He tries to get money for the state. I try to get it to Fort Bend County."I consider the tag team dead and Howard not much of a threat. Also did I mention Howard was also Texas Monthly's Worst Legislator 1999 and 1997. Being the worst and tied to the hip of Tom DeLay...Now that progress!
DeLay was actively involved with the energy center plans. "He's active in anything that goes on in our county," Howard says.
