Just heartsick about the news of Sgt. Harold Preston’s death. A 41-year veteran of the Houston Police Department who I hear was just weeks from retirement. So unfair. He was responding to a domestic disturbance call and shot by a suspect now in custody. Another one of the good guys and another very tough day for the city. Asking for your prayers for Sgt. Preston’s family and for the other officer shot on scene.

This morning Mayor Sylvester Turner rolled out the city’s new street rehab program. This program will address streets across the city which are in bad shape, but don’t require a complete reconstruct. The city is committed to repairing 300 miles of streets this year through this program, plus associated curbs, sidewalks, and storm drains. That’s twice what we did last year and four times three years ago. Thanks Houston Public Works for your hard work fixing our streets. Crews pictured here are busy on Jutland Road.

A busy week filed with “virtual” travel to meet w/community groups from Clear Lake to Midtown to West Houston. This big city seems a whole lot smaller when the commute is only a few steps to the laptop. Never dreamed I’d miss the miles logged in traffic, but I kinda do. Thanks to all the good neighbors who log on and speak up. Your civic engagement is key to making our city work better. Also enjoyed the Greater Houston Women's Chamber of Commerce luncheon celebrating 100 years of women’s suffrage, toured the “Mandela: Struggle for Freedom” exhibit at the HOLOCAUST MUSEUM HOUSTON (go see it!) and topped off the week celebrating the opening of Five Below’s 1000th store in CM Amy Peck’s District A. Happy weekend everyone!

We remembered Rabbi Karff at today’s council. Rabbi Karff was one of Houston’s beloved three amigos. Along with his good friends Archbishop Joseph Fiorenza and Rev. Bill Lawson, Karff inspired us to reach across our differences to seek the common good. A life very well lived.

I want to personally thank Sallie Alcorn and her assistant Julia for reaching out to me today regarding my concerns! I reached out to everyone from our local representatives to the President yesterday and not only did they call to check on me, they offered advice on what else I could do from here and a direct phoneline to call back for continued guidance. They are the only office of a representative to respond and it really shows how much they care about the people of Houston. Thank you!
