Congressional District 2 Candidates Discuss Flooding

Where the West Fork of the San Jacinto meets Lake Houston, a giant sand bar blocks the river. Areas beyond these dunes experienced far less flood damage from Harvey than the areas behind them.

The Lake Houston Area Grass Roots Flood Prevention Initiative has met with all three candidates for Texas Congressional District 2  to discuss our flood prevention concerns and objectives. Congressional District 2 is the seat being vacated by Ted Poe who is retiring.

The Lake Houston Area Grassroots Flood Prevention Initiative is committed to remaining neutral in all political matters and does not make political endorsements. That said, it is our duty to advocate our Group’s agenda to all current and potential office holders who can play a role in reducing future flooding.

Contenders include Dan Crenshaw and Kevin Roberts (in the May 22 runoff for the Republican nomination), and Todd Litton (Democratic Nominee in the November 6 General Election).

We provided each with a background briefing on flooding issues in this area and a list of our objectives. We also discussed ways that we hope our future Congressional Representative can help in the fight against future flooding.

We encourage you to visit the websites of all three candidates for Congressional District 2 and examine their positions (linked below) relating to flooding. Should you have any questions, we encourage you to  contact the candidates directly. In alphabetical order, by last name, we list their web sites and email addresses below.
