Mole's Progressive Democrat

The Progressive Democrat Newsletter grew out of the frustration of the 2004 election. Originally intended for New York City progressives, its readership is now national. For anyone who wants to be alerted by email whenever this newsletter is updated (usually weekly), please send your email address and let me know what state you live in (so I can keep track of my readership).

    Houston/Harris County, TX Biodiesel and Events

    From the Blogs:

    Sheriff Garcia Gives a Good Presentation: Sheriff Adrian Garcia was the featured speaker at this month’s HCDP Brown Bag Lunch. Before a great presentation by the Sheriff, there was added excitement when Diane Trautman announced she will be running for Harris County Tax Assessor-Collector in 2010.


    Biodiesel: Biodiesel is an American produced fuel that is cleaner than traditional diesel.
