STATEMENT FROM PETER BROWN ON NEW STUDY SHOWING BENEFITS OF TIER ONE UNIVERSITY


Houston City Council Member and Candidate for Mayor Peter Brown released the following statement in response to a new study from The Perryman Group showing that making the University of Houston a Tier One school could create more than a million new, good-paying jobs:

“This study provides another clear example of the tremendous benefit to be had all across our city from Tier One status for the University of Houston. It further confirms the role the University will play in sparking innovation, economic development, and in providing students with the opportunity to succeed. But perhaps most urgently in these difficult economic times, this report shows the role our investment in the University of Houston will play in creating new jobs and keeping our city working. With unemployment levels continuing to rise, we need to be much more proactive about investing in our economy – to secure opportunity for the future, and preserve it for the present. As a proud alumni of the University, I know I’ll be voting for Proposition 4, and I strongly encourage all Houstonians to do the same.”
