The Caucus PAC


The Caucus endorsed its first slate of candidates in 1975.  Since that time, our endorsement process had earned a reputation as one of the most open and transparent of any political organization in Houston.

We are proud to endorse the following candidates for the 2018 General Elections.  If you want to join our movement and help get these pro-LGBTQ candidates elected, please consider donating now!

2018 Propositions

Proposition A: Rebuild Houston – Proposition A puts the 4 sources of Rebuild funding in a pay-as-you-go lock-box so the funds can only be used for drainage and streets now and in the future protecting our quality of life, keeping the public safe and preserving our ability to get around the city when a major storm hits.

Position: Vote YES on Prop A


Proposition B: Creates UNEQUAL pay and forces the city to pay firefighters significantly MORE than police officers.  Forces layoffs of nearly 1,000 firefighters and police officers and severe cuts to vital city services.  Vote AGAINST Prop. B so we can go back to the drawing board and give firefighters a raise WITHOUT laying off police officers.

Endorsement: Vote NO on Prop B
