Bill King to Discuss Kingwood Flooding Issues, High-Rise Development and More at Townhall this Sunday

Bill King, who has announced he will be a candidate for mayor this November, will be holding a townhall meeting on February 10 at Los Cucos from 4:30-6:30.  Bill has indicated that he will discuss flooding in Kingwood, along with other issues important to our community.  This is the Eventbrite link if you are interested in more information – https://www.eventbrite.com/e/bill-king-for-houston-mayor-campaign-launch-los-cucos-tickets-55079090041.

Why You Should Come

Kingwood residents need to participate in City elections this year to ensure that candidates who know about the issues facing our community, especially flooding, are elected.  Therefore, I will post information on all events held by candidates for mayor or council that plan events in Kingwood.

Demonstrated Commitment to Solving Flood Issues

This is the first of those posts. I must say that Bill King’s desire to understand flooding issues throughout the City, not only in Kingwood, has impressed me. Long before, he decided to run for Mayor again, King contacted me several times to discuss flooding problems in Kingwood. We also discussed how solutions here might impact downstream communities. King even spent an entire day with me last summer slogging through sand dunes in East End Park and on Marina Drive in Forest Cove to see the problems first hand.

He has seen firsthand what 240,000 cubic feet of water per second can do.

King’s Position on High-Rise Development

I know Bill King has some definite opinions about the high-rise development in the floodplain by River Grove Park. Please come and hear what he has to say. I am eager, too, hear it, too. Hope to see you there.
