RELEASE: Harris County Democratic Party Statement on GOP County Commissioners Absence from Today’s Commissioners Court
Houston, TX -- The absence of Commissioners Radack and Cagle at Commissioners Court today is just more of the same GOP obstructionism. Rather than engaging in debate, they choose to let down their constituents by running away from the conversation altogether. The people of Harris County have overwhelming rejected this type of divisive non-governing.
The problems affecting Harris County residents are not new. For years we have needed to address flooding and our healthcare system that continues to leave vulnerable residents behind. We have crippling economic segregation and lack of access to good jobs for all communities. Commissioners Cagle and Radack didn’t show up for Harris County when they held power, so why would today be any different.
