Transcript MACEY FOR MAYOR MEANS A BETTER QUALITY HOUSTON Houston's dream has been rudely interrupted by a Mayor who has shown no ability to cope with or manage the growth of our city. No ability to identify problems, to establish priorities and stick to them. Louis Macey offers Houston an alternative. An alternative that will allow Houstonians to stop choking on promises. • Recognizing the need for higher police pay, Macey pushed for fair increases and sorely needed cars and equipment. The Mayor promised a 13% raise, but worked to only deliver 9% — and Houston's police force remains underpaid, undermanned, underequipped, and underutilized. • To unclog our choking traffic, Macey proposed that Houston implement a master plan to attack the problem head-on, at every level. Refusing to address the issue of traffic, the Mayor continues to depend solely on the MTA .. . • To repair Houston's pitted streets, Macey proposed shifting budget priorities to fix, not just fill, our countless potholes ... a solution not affecting any vital city services. Failing to set priorities once more, the Mayor continues to spend V2 as much on street maintenance as we did 10 years ago. • To head off Houston's garbage crisis, Macey pushed for temporary leasing of needed trucks, together with buying new vehicles to replace our worn- out fleet. Refusing to confront the crisis, the Mayor failed to lease trucks. Ten weeks later, he finally agreed to purchase new trucks — after being forced to by garbage drivers who marched on city hall. • To help diminish our vulnerability before the hardest-hitting floods struck, Macey urged the Mayor to assign round-the-clock emergency crews to unclog Houston's sewers and drainage inlets. Hoping the problem would go away, the Mayor did nothing ... and Houstonians paid the price in succeeding floods. As a City Councilman, Louis Macey has been on the right side of Houston and the wrong side of the Mayor on these critical issues and many more. We can't afford piecemeal solutions anymore. Because we can't afford to gamble with Houston's future. We need tough management across the board. As Mayor, Macey can do it. • Native Houstonian • Age 44 • Independent Businessman Married, 3 children Member Houston City Council 1975-79 Graduate of San Jacinto High Graduate, Rice University, Economics, 1959 Captain, U.S. Army Reserve Member of Advisory Board of Small Business Administration; Development Council, Houston Baptist University; Houston Chamber of Commerce, Military Affairs Committee; United Negro College Fund Member St. Michaels Church Paid Political Advertisement by Macey for Mayor Campaign.
