Fundraiser for James Cason in Texas

More photos of signs at the Interests Section are here

James Cason, the former chief of the U.S. Interests Section in Havana, has supporters in Texas, where a fundraiser for his Florida mayoral race is scheduled for Sunday.
Emilio Martínez-Paula and Celso Alonso organized the fundraiser with support from Casa Cuba, a Cuban-American group in Houston.
A Casa Cuba announcement recalls that Cason posted a sign at the Interests Section in support of the 75 dissidents, pro-democracy activists and others arrested in the March 2003 crackdown. The announcement says Cason:
Maintained solidarity with men and women who carry the dignity and decorum of an entire people.
The fundraiser will be held at 3 p.m. at a Houston bookstore - the Libreria Amigos, 5401 Bissonnet St., Houston. For information, call 713-667-7772. A James Cason for mayor website is here.

The Coral Gables mayor's race looks competitive. Don Slesnick announced on Oct. 18 that he was running for a fifth term, the Miami Herald said.
