One Meeting that Matters

Meeting details are sketchy at this time. But organizers tell me the forum will focus on how to spend FEMA money coming to Texas.

A large part of that decision depends on advocacy. So a large turnout from the Lake Houston Area will raise our visibility and help our cause. This meeting matters! Let’s fill the room and make our voices heard. If you click on the link to Houston Stronger priorities, you will immediately see the importance of a strong turnout.

I will post more details on this Houston Stronger meeting as they become available.
