FIXING OUR STREETS

Houston is a first class city and we deserve first class streets. As Mayor, Ben will make fixing our streets in a timely manner a priority; synchronizing our traffic lights; and working with regional partners to improve traffic conditions. Sitting in traffic means spending less time with your family. Houstonians deserve much more than we have received from city government.

FISCAL RESTRAINT

In tough economic times, we must do more with less. Ben will work to rein in wasteful spending that has occurred at City Hall and work to fix our city’s pension problem. Ben is a business owner and understands the city must be run like a business. He will protect your hard earned tax dollars.

Examples of how I have put my money and energy where the community is: 1) Saved SHAPE Community Center from a predatory creditor; 2) Saved the Fourth Ward Slave brick streets from the city destroying them; 3) Bought the MLK statue for McGregor Park when the City and METRO wouldn't guarantee the statue would look like Dr. King if put out for bid; and 4) Saved the historic black talk radio station, KCOH, from financial ruin and collapse...and I fight in court everyday to obtain justice for those who have been taken advantage of by the powerful...”
