Question:

Who authored this proposed amendment to the city charter?

Answer:

The proposed amendment was authored by Citizens For Public Accountability (CPA), a bipartisan organization of retired partners of some of Houston’s international and local accounting firms. CPA was founded in 2001 for the basic purpose of making available to the public pertinent financial information underlying ballot issues. CPA authored the proposed amendment due to the lack of response by the mayor, city controller and city council to CPA’s findings and recommendations concerning the deteriorating finances of the City of Houston. See A9.
