The Houston Property Rights Association sends out this info on today’s lunch speaker:
This Friday the HPRA lunch time speaker is Percy Gonzalez, a long time East End businessman who heads up the East End/Harrisburg Committee which he organized to fight Metro’s proposed plan to build a Bus Rapid Transit guideway on the primary commercial street in the Hispanic inner-city.
East End opponents of METRO’s plans have not been as successful as Richmond-rail opponents at getting their message out, so Gonzalez’s talk should be a good opportunity for people to hear their arguments.
HPRA meets at noon at the Courtyard restaurant, 1885 St. James Place. Lunch is optional, and is $14.
