THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT OF OUR CAMPAIGN!
With your support and after months of campaigning, we’ve finally accomplished our ultimate goal of being elected the next City Council Member for At-Large Position 4!
With your support we won the Runoff Election with 62% percent of the vote. That was the widest margin of victory for any of the At-Large races and could not have been accomplished without your commitment to our campaign and your dedication to moving our city forward!
From the beginning, this campaign has been based on moving ALL of Houston forward. Together, we worked to spread that vision across the City and together, we will implement that vision at City Hall!
I have been truly humbled by your support throughout this campaign and know that we could not have accomplished any of this without you. To everyone who made a phone call, knocked on a door, talked to a friend, or simply wished us well via social media – I sincerely thank you!
As our campaign comes to a close and the next step in this journey begins, I encourage you to remain engaged in your community and with the At-Large 4 office. My door at City Hall will always be open and I hope that you’ll stop by and say hello. It is your office too, after all! I look forward to your partnership as I serve as the City Council Member for At-Large Position 4.
On behalf our entire campaign team, we thank you for your continued support and partnership in this journey to move all of Houston forward!
Now let’s get to work!
