Three 100+ Year Floods In Three Years Means Flood Control Needs To Be Number One

Symbolic of poor planning and neglect of our regional flooding problem, the City of Houston has a proposed bond issue for November of around $1.6 billion, and the amount for flood control is zero! This time we need to get it right. Bring the best and brightest together and let's come up with an innovative solution that works and get it done.
As for the recovery we need to be smart, careful and effective. There is so much opportunity for fraud, waste and abuse. Remember the City of Houston's former Public Works Director was recently indicted on bribery charges.
We need to have people that are trustworthy administering the relief program. The City of Houston's track record on Federal funds is not good so let others do it. It's because their track record has earned our distrust.
