Former KPRC 2 reporter for Harris County Tax Assessor-Collector?

The Tribune is reporting that Mike Sullivan, Houston City Council Member-District E, could be a likely candidate for Harris County Tax Assessor-Collector.

Here is why I'm blogging about that on a media is more of The Tribune story:

If Sullivan runs and wins, he will follow in the path of legendary Jack Cato, who worked for 20 years as the police reporter and television photographer for KPRC-TV Channel 2 before being elected Harris County Tax Assessor-Collector in 1999.

“I started as the night police beat reporter for Channel 2 after school,” Sullivan said. “For two years, I reported to Phil Archer and Jack Cato. Then Cato left and became the tax assessor.” READ THE REST

As pointed out in the comments, Cato was the County Treasurer, not Harris County Tax Assessor-Collector. Kevin Whited of blogHOUSTON commented that The Tribune deleted the original story I linked to. On Nov. 5, the paper republished the story online with the corrected information.
