This weekend is the one-year anniversary of Hurricane Harvey. People across the region will be coming together to honor the people and places we lost and celebrate the victories achieved in the wake of the storm. It is hard to process the amount of loss and devastation this storm left behind. But the resiliency of the people of Texas and their drive to recover truly brought our communities together to act as one.
Tomorrow is Election Day for the Harris County Flood Control District Bond. I encourage all of you to get out and vote for Proposition A and help fight future flooding in Harris County. To see a full list of the projects included in the final bond, visit https://www.hcfcd.org/media/2907/2018bondprojectlist2018-08-06-1130.pdf.
Early Voter turnout in the Lake Houston area was the highest in the county. The Kingwood location saw more than 4,100 voters alone. On Election Day, you must vote at your precinct’s polling location. You can find your specific location by visiting this link: http://harrisvotes.com/VoterBallotSearch.aspx?L=E Included below is a letter from County Judge Ed Emmett asking for your support of the election.
Many Federal, State and Local agencies are all publishing items to note the time and work put in by residents, friends, families, neighbors and so many more in our road to recovery. Several of these are included below. Be on the lookout for even more of these inspiring items as move forward.
