Text of NEXT STEP is as follows:
“We are Houston. Working harder. Reaching higher. And beating the odds with strength and resolve. In Houston's best tradition… Peter Brown. He built a successful business, getting results and creating jobs. On the city council, Brown rooted out wasteful spending in city contracts, while investing in crime prevention. He's got a detailed plan… a blueprint to make Houston even better to live, work and raise a family. Peter Brown for Mayor. An even better Houston.”
As a successful businessman, Peter Brown has the experience Houston needs in our next mayor. A U.S. Army Veteran born and raised in Houston, Peter built his own small business into a successful national firm. He knows how to make a business thrive, and he knows how to get results. As Mayor, he'll use those skills to improve our city – protecting our tax dollars with a more effective, efficient and accountable approach to government. He'll make smart investments to reduce crime, improve the quality of life, and attract more businesses and more jobs to Houston. As a City Councilmember, Brown saved taxpayers millions by reworking city building plans, cutting government waste, and championing conservation efforts. Brown has the experience and vision to build an even better Houston. We need a Mayor who will get results, and Peter Brown is that leader.
