HERO is on the ballot—and so are Houston values

Posted on August 5, 2015
Hero2Today, the Houston City Council reaffirmed support for the Houston Equal Rights Ordinance (HERO) by rejecting an attempt to overturn it and instead voting to place it on the ballot in the upcoming election on November 3rd.

In response, Texas Wins campaign director Christina Gorczynski, a Houston strategist who helped get the ordinance passed through Council last year, issued the following statement.

“The City Council has now twice supported the ordinance because it embodies Houstonian values of freedom and opportunity. It is also good for the city’s pro-business brand. This November, we believe Houstonians will vote their values of treating everyone fairly and equally under the law –  no matter one’s race, age, military status, sexual orientation or gender identity.”

HERO reflects Houston’s values—and we’re confident that come November, a majority of Houstonians will vote to defend this critical ordinance to protect their LGBT neighbors and friends from discrimination.
