Mayoral Candidates 2015 BannerOn Tuesdays through Sept. 22, 2015, we offer you a chance to speak directly with the major candidates running to be the next mayor of the City of Houston. We continue on this edition with former Kemah mayor and Houston Chronicle columnist Bill King. The Houston native is an attorney and businessman. He served two terms as mayor of the small city of Kemah in Galveston County, and from 2010 to 2014, he wrote a weekly column on politics and public policy for the Houston Chronicle.

We discuss some of the issues facing Houston and what he thinks he would bring to the office. But really, this is a chance for you to ask your questions of this candidate. (You can e-mail questions now at talk@houstonmatters.org).

Also this hour: On Wednesday, Houston’s Depelchin Children’s Center will be the site of Partnering in Faith: A Multi-Faith Summit on Domestic Violence. Organizers say many Houstonians turn to religious leaders for support and guidance amid incidents of domestic violence. We discuss why, and what support faith leaders can offer, as we talk with Sherri Kendall, the CEO of Aid to Victims of Domestic Abuse (AVDA), and area Lutheran pastor Rev. Stephen Quill.

Plus: Throughout the summer, Houston Matters has dedicated time each week to books about Greater Houston, set in Greater Houston or written or edited by Houstonians. Our summer reading series concludes today with Chris Cander. Her latest novel is called Whisper Hollow. Cander tells Houston Matters’ Michael Hagerty what writing has in common with her past experiences as a firefighter and body builder.
