Council Member Martin Responds to the Texas Supreme Court's

Decision to Repeal HERO Ordinance


Houston, TX - Houston City Council Member Dave Martin issues a statement in response to the Texas Supreme Court's ruling this morning to repeal the HERO ordinance.


"Since first being introduced last year, I have voiced my opposition to the HERO ordinance driven by the mayor. I, along with five other of my council colleagues, voted against it and steadfastly believe it is a decision that belongs to the people and that the legislative power of the citizens of Houston needs to be upheld."
