Councilmember Cohen looking for eyes and ears in civic groups to be her neighborhood ambassadors

Jun. 11,

Houston City Councilmember Ellen Cohen is creating an “ambassadors” program to help her connect with the nearly 60 active civic associations in District C — and she’s looking for volunteers.

Applicants should be actively involved in their own civic organizations, be prepared to communicate regularly with Cohen’s staff and take part in bi-monthly meetings with the councilwoman and her staff.

Ambassadors will also be expected to help in organizing community-based office hours for taking in constituent concerns, and assisting with other special projects.
