Mayor's Office Press Release

Mayor Parker Issues Statement Indicating There Will Be No Consideration of HERO During Her Term

November 16, 2015 -- After consulting with City Council members and considering all the other issues I still want to get finished, I do not see a way that we will be able to revisit the Houston Equal Rights Ordinance before I leave office at the end of the year. I am gratified that council members who voted for HERO initially remain supportive and I trust that the next mayor will work on it as appropriate.
