State Rep Riddle says she wants no low-income housing in her district

To appreciate the fair housing problem in Texas just watch this video.

Back in February, at a hearing on the budget for the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs (TDHCA), Texas State Representative Debbie Riddle, House District 150, which comprises much of northwest Harris County (51% Anglo. per capita income $25,272, 28% renters), asked Mike Gerber, executive director of TDHCA to not put any low-income housing in her district where, “it is not wanted and it is fought.”

Representative Riddle suggested that the state housing department place future low-income housing in Representative Eric Johnson’s district (15% Anglo, per capita income $12,731, 57% renters) instead of her district.
