Hopefully, a transcript of this speech by Mayor White will be available tomorrow:

In an appearance that should boost his environmental credentials, Mayor Bill White will join activist and lawyer Robert F. Kennedy Jr. on Monday evening on stage at the Hobby Center.

The event is the first sponsored by The Progressive Forum, a nonprofit group that hopes to host six major speaker events each year in Houston’s downtown theater district focusing on Democratic and progressive values.


Kennedy will give a speech titled “A Contract with Our Future,” which will focus on the connections between a sound environmental policy and a strong economy, a theme the mayor has touched on about the importance of cleaning up Houston’s air pollution.

KEVIN WHITED ASKS (EXTREMELY SARCASTICALLY): Wait a minute, Mayor White called himself a “fiscal conservative” earlier. Does that mean Mayor White is the conservative balance to Mr. Kennedy at this Progressive Forum tonight?
