“I firmly believe that we have to throw everything that we can at the rise in violent crime right now,” said Council Member Abbie Kamin. “We have a rise homicides. We have a rise in gun violence, and we need to be utilizing any and all tools that we have to address the serious and dangerous activity and protect residents. Period.”

Today Council approved the expansion of the Shotspotter pilot program to assist law enforcement in responding quickly to gun violence in neighborhoods. Every district member voted in support of this technological investment as the city continues to address the rise in homicides and gun violence.

Hello, Councilmember Kamin. Can we get an update on the Heights Hike and Bike Trail bridge as it goes over the Bayou? That bridge has been closed for more than ... eight ( 8 ) months?? It's a HUGE part of so many peoples' lives; why has the city done nothing to restore it? If they're waiting on the nearby park to finish construction... my vote would be to open it now. Don't wait, re-open this bridge ASAP; announce it here, local news, Nextdoor, etc! Thank you for your advocacy.
Thank you Abbie for sponsoring those 70 furbabies for their journey up north to give them a better chance to find their furever homes ❤️🐾🤗 PS: I voted for you to represent my District C. A native Houstonian
Thank you for sponsoring RPM rescue dogs
Thank you for sponsoring the transport of 70 dogs through Rescued Pets Movement up north to their furrever homes! Glad to see local politicians with the same morals as myself 🙂
THANK YOU Office of Council Member Abbie Kamin for sponsoring 70 of Rescued Pets Movement animals for transport. Your efforts are graciously appreciated. Thank you for caring and supporting the Houston's rescue efforts to our homeless animal issue. Together we can make a difference and change the negative environment our neglected furry friends experience here in Houston.
Thank you SO much for helping to transport some of Houston’s homeless dogs to other states. Rescued Pets Movement, fosters and volunteers appreciate your help!!! THANK YOU!!!
We are District C constituents. My wife was denied a COVID-19 vaccine today at Delmar Stadium despite having an appointment. A City employee said that they had no record of her appointment despite her showing them the appointment email that the City sent her. This happened weeks after she had an appointment at Minute Maid Park only to be turned away because the City ran out. It’s obviously not the City’s fault that the vaccine is in limited supply. But the City cannot continuously make appointments with its citizens for a potentially life-saving treatment and then deny them at the last minute – it is cruel. What does Council Member Kamin propose to do about this failure on the City's part?
Good Morning, Just a friendly reminder that the Montrose TIRZ Community Briefing is tonight! I hope that you all can join us! You MUST preregister. https://tinyurl.com/montrosemeeting
