I am a third generation Houstonian and I worked hard, as part of the Coalition for a Greater Houston, to defeat the Drainage Fee. (Rain Tax)
While engaged in the battle, I discovered Steve Costello had ongoing contracts for City infrastructure projects while he was pushing this initiative.
I asked Mayor Parker, at City Council, if she knew that Steve Costello had these contracts when she appointed him as the Chair of the Drainage Committee.
And did she know that had had conducted the first meeting of the Drainage Committee before he turned in his Conflict of Interest Questionnaire?
Now the Texas Supreme Court, by an 8-0 margin, has confirmed what we all knew. Defective ballot language and broken promises are at the core of this ordinance.
There is a good chance that the whole ordinance will be thrown out by a lower court.
Costello ran as a Conservative but engineered the largest tax increase in the City’s history.
The program has been massive failure and the funds have been spent on City salaries and bike trails.
Are your streets any better today and is flooding problem any better? Go ask the good folks in Meyerland.
Conservatives don’t go to work for the City to benefit themselves or special interest. They go to work to improve the quality of life for everyone in the City.
Want to continue with her same failed policies and watch our City go bankrupt? Or vote for a Conservative?
See you at the polls,
President, The Executive Council
