The Realtor and the Missing Paperwork

THE REALTOR AND THE MISSING PAPERWORK After selling her Houston real-estate business last year, Realtor Karen Derr became one of the first candidates to announce an interest in running for City Council in District H, even before it was clear Adrian Garcia’s former seat would be available. But her ramped-up campaign missed this week’s filing deadline, so Derr won’t be on the ballot: “Derr tells 11 News that she thought the city’s deadline matched a state deadline for special elections, which is not until later this month. ‘To tell you the truth, we’ve been out with a very grassroots campaign on the trail and going to three and four meetings a day,’ she said. ‘We dropped the ball, evidently.’” [11News; previously in Swamplot]
