City Of Houston Sobering Center To Offer Options For Those Down On Their Luck—Why Doesn’t Mayor Parker Include This In The Ongoing Debate On How We Treat Those Down-And-Out In Houston?

I remain strongly opposed to the  mean-spirited Houston anti-food sharing ordinance, and will continue to criticize Mayor Parker when she merits criticism.

It turns out to be fairly often that I feel Mayor Parker merits criticism.

On the other hand, the City of Houston Sobering Center announced a few weeks ago will keep people out of jail, and will help provide options to those most down on their luck.

It is also true that some of the folks on the right opposing the food-sharing law are a pack of hyenas that would not leave Annise Parker alone if she cured cancer, and who are in no respect champions of the poor.

It’s a failure of the Mayor’s political team that a larger narrative has not been put out there that includes this sobering center, as the Mayor’s support among Democrats and progressives takes a justified hit with the anti-sharing ordinance.

Here is a form to volunteer to help repeal that anti-food sharing ordinance.
