Why Fight Flooding?
83 lives and $125 billion in economic losses—that is how much Hurricane Harvey impacted the Houston Region. It is not the first time. We were hit with 500-year storms in 2016 and 2017. We were hit by Allison and Ike. We will get hit again. The 500-year storm is the new 100-year storm.
We must fight back. Congress allocated $141 billion in funding to help the country recover from major disasters—from Puerto Rico to California. We must Vote FOR the August 25th Harris County Bond Election to finally address our flooding infrastructure. A Vote FOR the August 25th Bond Election will provide our region with the necessary matching funds to get our fair share of those federal dollars. If not, we will lose those dollars forever. We have a once-in-a-lifetime chance to fight flooding, improve our communities, and transform our region into a better place for all residents.
