GET TO KNOW CYNTHIA

As a native Houstonian and proud resident of the Near Northside, I understand the needs of the district and want to work with residents to ensure a better and promising future for District H. My history of serving local communities started with my parents.  As a child, my parents taught me about the value of caring and respecting others and the importance of supporting one another.  The relationships I have built stem from this value.  I accept people for who they are and develop deep friendships not just relationships. I have been heavily involved in projects that have changed the face of many communities.  The vision that residents want for our area is one that I deeply share and have worked to support. When I am elected, our future for District H will provide:

  • Development and support for our children and schools

  • Safe and healthy environments that every family should be entitled to regardless of zip code and economic status

  • Better quality of life that includes affordable housing

My commitment and dedication to the community will continue, working side by side with residents to create the change they want to see. We, the people, have the power to positively change our community if we work together.
