Do you think Houston having a lesbian mayor would improve the image of Texas in the LGBT community around the country?
Jan Wei — "If she’s elected, yes, unless there’s a backlash."
Bill McCartney — "Absolutely. Any high-visibility position in any city is something we want to achieve and anything to counter Rick Perry would be a benefit to all of us."
Steven Racondo — "With any political office, it’s ultimately what she gets accomplished."
Casey Torrey — "I think so. There’s not that many people elected who support the community. She can do positive things."
Brae Borne — "I’d be surprised if she’s elected."
