To All Graduates of (Houston) Sam Houston Senior High School, regardless of the class year:
I no longer live in Houston, or Harris County, and haven’t in over 40 years. That said, it doesn’t mean that I don’t keep an ear to the ground about the goings on there: especially in the North Houston / North Harris County area, as Donna and I both have family still residing in that area. If you live in Harris County PCT 1, you will want to know that one of our own; Joe Danna, SHSHS Class of 1970 is running for Constable Pct 1 and is greatly deserving of your support.
I am not going to lie to anyone and claim that Joe and I have maintained our childhood friendship over all these many years; we haven’t. As most childhood friends end up going their separate ways … so did we. However, as soon as I learned that he was running for office I wanted to step forward and speak on his behalf. Why? Because when we were growing up on Kelley Street in the Lindale Park addition he was one of, if not THE, nicest, kindest and most sincere of the many kids that grew up in that neighborhood.
Since I firmly believe that the values that most people live by are soundly in place by the time that they are 10 or 12 years old; I am confident that Joe has continued to exhibit those traits that made him a standout in our neighborhood. I think it is time that he bring his many talents and deep values into a position of leadership to the broader community, for the benefit of all who reside in Harris County in general, and Pct 1 in particular. Please don’t just take my word for though; use this link to check out his campaign website: http://dannaforconstable.com/ I invite you to ask anyone that you think might know Joe Danna what they think about him (law enforcement officers, members of Saint Rose of Lima Catholic Community, etc.) , as I am pretty sure that you will be impressed with their reply … assuming they actually know him.
Many of us are sickened by the way things seem to happen within political circles, at all levels, and for a very good reason. Here is the chance to put someone in place that I believe will rise above all of that. If you have been aware of some of the things that have happened in the past in the office that he is seeking, I am sure that you know what I mean. It is time for a positive change, and I will just leave it at that.
Thanks for taking the time to read this, and please consider supporting Joe Danna in his quest to become the next Constable of Harris County PCT 1.
