What does the county government actually do? How is it different from city government? Who’s in charge of flood control? Who’s setting your property tax rate? Why do we have sheriffs, constables, and police? What’s the difference?
Be it public safety, infrastructure, or community services, local government policy decisions directly impact your life on a day-to-day basis. But local government issues usually get a fraction of the attention that we devote to state or federal political battles. Join the Houston LLC* for a conversation on the huge and often invisible role local government plays in your day-to-day life. Plus, we will talk about the right way to go about making a difference locally. Guest speakers include:
- Ben Stephens, Houston LLC member and Senior Associate, Hush Blackwell LLP
- Former Harris County Judge Robert Eckels and Of Counsel, Hush Blackwell LLP
- Richard A. Johnson, Ed.D., Director of the Texas Public Policy Foundation’s Booker T. Washington Initiative
Complimentary drinks and snacks will be served. RSVP is required to attend. Please extend this invitation to any young professional in the area who may have interest in this topic.
*Liberty Leadership Council events are open to young professionals between the ages of 21 and 40 who are interested in conservative public policy. Click here for more information.
