The Texas 25
Today, Texas Monthly, will have a story about the top 25 most influential people in Texas politics. Of course, Gov. Rick Perry made the list and while I did not make the list this year (probably fell in somewhere between 26-30) I forgive Texas Monthly. Who did make the list? And, what if Lubbock had a list? (more after the jump)Here are the names on this years list of people with the most influence in Texas politics courtesy of the BurkaBlog:
Steve Ogden Jim Pitts Rick Perry Jay Kimbrough Dave Carney Bill Hammond Dick Trabulsi Brooke Rollins Scott McCown Dan Patrick Michael Quinn Sullivan Tom Suehs Bob Perry Steve Mostyn Al Armendariz Alonzo Cantu Bill Powers Woody Hunt Charles Butt Pat Robbins Mike Toomey Rusty Kelley Buddy Jones Bill Miller Brint Ryan
Thursday on LFN I will go more into the list talk about a few of those named. I wonder if this list will start any ego wars out there between people who were put on the list and those left off.
If Lubbock had a list of 25 or so people who were most influential right now, who would make the list? I'd like to get your thoughts on here about who should be on Lubbock's list. Not looking for people in the past, but for people who have influence now.
