Open Mik Friday

The HPRA speaker this Friday noon will be attendees who chose to grab the moment. Our scheduled speaker, Ken Hoover, with the John Birch Society, has had to cancel, and we hope to soon have him rescheduled to explain the downside of the Con-Con.


Here is an issue we can discuss: (1) Do you think city hall should refresh the painted stripes on city streets so we know exactly where the lanes are … or do you think drivers will spontaneously separate themselves well enough so that stripes on roads are only a money wasting amenity we should do without as an overdue austerity measure in a city that can’t pay its bills? Another possible topic: (2) Since Houston overlaps several school districts would it be morally wrong for Houston’s Mayor Turner to focus his turn-around talents on HISD, as he has offered, when children in other districts also need improved schools?

Bring your best policy game and HPRA hopes to see you on Friday.
