Houston Raising Many City Fees—What People Want To Do Is Complain

The City of Houston is considering raising the cost of fees for as many as 150 city services.

This is what happens when you vote out red light cameras that, in addition to improving road safety, raised $10 million a year

This is what happens when nobody wants to pay taxes and a recession hits.

While I don’t understand why Mayor Annise  Parker often can’t communicate her ideas in a more healthy and outgoing manner with the city, I’m going to stand with her as she does the things needed to address city budget issues. It is difficult to ask people to pay more in economic hard times.

Folks will complain. Yet in our last city election turnout was 16%.

We don’t want to accept the responsibility of paying our municipal bills. We don’t want to stop at red lights. We don’t want to vote.

We just want to complain.
