998992_4481611698036_889058301_nRepresentative Borris Miles made the following statement regarding the U.S. Supreme Court striking down Texas abortion restrictions Monday in Whole Women’s Health v. Cole:

“I was proud to be part of the efforts to fight against House Bill 2 in 2013. I am grateful that the Supreme Court has recognized what we knew then: That House Bill 2 was a thinly-veiled attempt to prevent women from accessing their right to choice.’

“In the House, we did all we could to weaken the bill. For example, I filed an amendment that would have at least allowed doctors to prescribe medication that would induce termination to rape victims. However, since the health and well-being of women was never their true concern, Republicans shot it down along with all other Democratic amendments.’

“We did everything we could in the House, but all eyes were on the Senate. Wendy Davis stood valiantly in a 13-hour filibuster, fighting to the last second to keep HB 2 from passing. Wendy was a true warrior for reproductive health. With Wendy gone, we need warriors in the Senate more than ever.’

“As your Senator from District 13, I will be a warrior for women’s health, voting rights, a fair criminal justice system, education, a budget that serves all Texans and all other principles we Democrats believe in.”

Miles represents District 146 in the Texas House of Representatives. He is seeking the Democratic nomination to serve as Senator for District 13 on the November ballot. District 13’s current senator, Rodney Ellis, won nomination to Harris County Commissioners Court on June 25th, 2016.


Mayor Sylvester Turner recently kicked off the Hire Houston Youth Program, an initiative to provide summer internships and jobs to youth ages 16 to 24. The Mayor has jumpstarted the program by guaranteeing 450 jobs with the city at parks, libraries and even City Hall itself.

Applicants will attend workforce readiness training one week prior to their start date. They will also receive career coaching and other benefits to prepare them for the future.  Once on the job, they will work from 32-40 hours a week for seven weeks and be paid at least $8.00 an hour.

Want to apply for a job? 

Application will be accepted through tomorrow, Friday, May 13th. To get started on your application, please visit

Do you own a business? 

There are three ways businesses can help:

  • Hire and pay the salary of a Hire Houston Youth applicant and pledge $500 to support the program.
  • Pledge $3,000 to sponsor a youth’s salary and other training and benefits.
  • Support the initiative with a tax deductible donation through the website.
