Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo is committed to storm surge protection. Here are her words, taking from an October 2018 video:
The county judge should focus on making life better for our community, on being proactive. But for the last 10 years this position has done only too little too late, cleaning up after hurricanes instead of helping us prepare. We need leadership that will take a stand – before the next crisis, before storm surge from hurricane force winds rips through Galveston Bay and up the Houston Ship Channel.
