Senator Borris L. Miles

"I am shocked and saddened by the death of Council Member Larry Green. Council Member Green was an incredible leader and an advocate for the community. He worked to increase economic development and opportunities in his district, improve policing to keep families safe and over the past six months, on Harvey recovery. He was well-respected among community leaders, business leaders and the Texas delegation and worked hard to ensure Houston was in the best position possible for success.

"Council Member Green and I have been friends since we were 13. As we grew up, we talked about how we would make our community better. As elected officials, we did just that. He worked every single day as a public servant for Houston City Council District K. His only wish was to serve the community honorably with passion and dedication. He did just that and more. He was my frat brother, my colleague and one of my closest friends. His loss has left a hole in the hearts of many in the community, including myself. Rest in peace, Larry."
