I'm a third generation Houstonian, and I’m proud of every hot, muggy, mosquito-infested, unique, culturally rich mile of this city. It’s the people who make it special.
We Houstonians are able and resourceful, determined and compassionate. I know that if we work together, we can make our hometown an example that will lead Texas and the nation out of these difficult times.
It seems we’re watching from a far shore as our middle class shrinks, social services disappear, and children face a future of fewer opportunities. It’s tempting to give up on healing our society and just settle for holding ground. But trying to hold ground is exactly how we’ve lost ground. We can’t let this go on. It’s time to bridge the gulf between public policy and the democratic ideals that shaped this country.
It’s time to take our world back.
