No one asked how much you pay for Storytime. The question was how much taxpayer dollars pay for libraries that host events that allow registered sex offenders to be around children. Houston Library officials apologized for not doing a background check. That costs money. twitter.com/SylvesterTurne…
How much are you paying for a library where a registered sex offender participated in Drag Queen Storytime? The Fact is, Houston spends plenty of taxpayer dollars for services that are not essential. Houston, just like other cities, can handle property tax reform. #txlege twitter.com/SylvesterTurne…

Remember this when you hear the mayor say that limiting property taxes would prevent the city from providing essential services. twitter.com/onecajun1976/s…
Houston taxpayers, this is one of the ways Houston spends your tax dollars. It's another reason to support my limit on property tax increases. --> "Houston Library apologizes after registered sex offender participated in Drag Queen Storytime." #txlege chron.com/news/houston-t…
