A Note from Ellen

This morning, City Council approved a map that places my residence in District C. I am thrilled to announce that I am definitely running for the open City Council District C seat.

District C encompasses segments of my former legislative district and includes portions of the historic Heights, eclectic Montrose, the strong and stable neighborhoods of Old Braeswood, Meyerland, and South Hampton, scenic Memorial Park, and many other phenomenal neighborhoods including Oak Forest and Garden Oaks. Representing such a diverse and dynamic district is an amazing opportunity!

The redistricting process was not easy, and the city had a challenging task in trying to satisfy all of the interested parties. To those of you who are not in District C, it is true that you cannot vote for me. However, I can vote for you because my vote on City Council would affect all of you! We all want streets free of flooding, air free of pollution, and a city free of crime. If I am fortunate enough to be elected to City Council, I will work every day to ensure that Houston is a leader among the great cities in this country, and for that matter, in the world.


H.E.B. Water Playground Grand Opening

Join Ellen, Friends of Jaycee Park, and other special guests this Saturday, May 21 at 10:00 a.m. as she celebrates the grand opening of the H.E.B. Water Playground at Jaycee Park. Since the initiative to improve the park began 2 years ago, over $300,000 has been raised by the community and its partners. This is a great opportunity to meet and visit members of the community.
