HERO 2.0

The Chron has an online story today on the possibility of another vote on HERO. Here is the story:

We got beat pretty soundly on HERO in 2015 and I am not convinced we could win right now. I have yet to see a strategy on what would work. We got beat in some strong Democratic vote areas and what has changed?

We would need to expand the pro-HERO  leadership coalition. Bring in some fresh faces. Start having a communitywide conversation.  We have a long way to go on this.

King of sounds like an admission of guilt. Sigh.
