Houston Business Leaders

Support Proposition 1

Preserves Houstons reputation as a multicultural,


welcoming place
Dear Fellow Houstonians,
We are executives who lead business interests in our community, and we are
proud of our great city. Because we care about the long-term growth and success
of our community, we support Proposition 1, the Houston equal rights ordinance.
We believe Houstonians have much to be proud of. From our award-winning
restaurants and world class cultural scene to our expansive parks and green
spaces, Houston is an amazing place to live, work and visit.
We are proud of the fact that we are the most diverse city in America a
multicultural community where we treat everyone the same. Around the world,
Houston is known as a welcoming and friendly place. This unique community
spirit has driven our explosive growth, adding more than 600,000 jobs in the last
decade.
Ensuring Houston remains a welcoming place is critical to our continued growth
and creating jobs. Proposition 1 ensures that everyone is treated fairly across
our city and reinforces our reputation as a multicultural, welcoming and friendly
place.
We urge you to vote YES on Proposition 1.
