Two weeks ago, Houston Matters profiled all nine of the candidates on the ballot for mayor of Houston. Just two – incumbent Mayor Annise Parker and challenger Ben Hall have polled above single digits, so we reached out to those two campaigns, in the interests of giving you a chance to speak with the two candidates directly. Last week, Mayor Parker joined us. Today, it’s Ben Hall’s turn.

Ben Hall is an attorney and an ordained minister. He was a city attorney in the Lanier administration back in the early 1990s. He was born and raised in Columbia, South Carolina, has a law degree from Harvard and since 2000, has run his own law firm. He also preaches regularly. In a recent profile, the Houston Chronicle notes Hall’s outgoing personality, commanding presence, and ambition, but notes that Hall himself has acknowledged – quote – “struggling with ego and vanity.”

This hour, we welcome your questions for mayoral candidate Ben Hall.
