Correct Brandon.  The city teams were established before Canonical  
decided to go with state-only level approval.  In the case of the  
Houston Team, they pretty much decided they didn't need official  
approval and continue to meet and grow monthly.  I tried explaining  
the "umbrella" Texas team but it hasn't taken off with the city  
teams.  There is now a group in West Texas and a couple of other  
areas that are forming for more local support.  Shawn S made the  
owner for the Launchpad team a few weeks ago so I can approve folks  
interested in joining up there but really it's not active.  Imho - I  
think folks are not interested in a Texas state level team (as of  
yet) just to get official approval.  They are getting what they need  
from their city/area teams.  If the idea is for local teams to do  
local support then city teams make sense. The state is just too large  
for folks to feel connected at the state level.  The umbrella idea  
might work when more areas become organized but it is really just  
adding another layer of admin work.

If someone wants to step up and take the Texas Team by the horns (so  
to speak) I have no problems supporting them.  I've only be a contact/ 
leader by default until someone else claims the role.
