Houston Chronicle

All together the $7.5 billion spending plan is an enormous step forward for the agency and for the city. We strongly urge Houston voters to support this first step, by voting yes on the ballot proposition to give Metro permission to issue the bonds it needs.” – The Houston Chronicle (read the editorial here)

“The ability of Houstonians to more efficiently move around our region is essential to our continued economic success – both for our businesses and our employees and their families. The METRONext plan directs our transit plans between now and 2040. It is critical that we get this right, and I think we are on a good path.” – Mark Cover, Chair of the Greater Houston Partnership’s Transportation Advisory Committee    

Commissioner Rodney Ellis

“I’m voting for the METRO Proposition because it expands transit for people who need it most.” – Harris County Commissioner Rodney Ellis

“Houstonians need a multi-faceted transportation system and need to prepare for the future.  We can’t lay enough concrete to solve the transportation challenges of growth in the Houston area.  I support the METRO bond referendum and encourage others to vote for it as well.” – Former Congressman Ted Poe

“Giving Houstonians better transportation options that support the planet is a key priority in protecting ourselves from the worst effects of global warming and air pollution.” – Catherine Fraser, Clean Air Associate with Environment Texas 

Environment Texas, the Sierra Club’s Houston Regional Group, 350.org Houston, TAG Houston, Public Citizen, Sunrise Movement HTX, Buffalo Bayou Partnership, and TexPIRG have all endorsed METRO’s Proposition A. (read the release here)

“Solidly worth your vote!” – Urban policy blogger Tory Gattis (read the entire post here)

“To secure our region’s continued economic prosperity as its population grows to 10 million by 2040, and to keep congestion from crippling our region, we must expand our mobility options in a fiscally prudent manner. We believe the METRO Proposition does that.” – Houston Realty Business Coalition
