In 1977, Rep.

“Kimberly Willis best embodies the spirit of Sylvester Turner's longtime advocacy.�

This election will be the first time since 1988 that Sylvester Turner's name does not appear on the list of candidates for this seat. The largely black and Hispanic district, which covers northwest Houston and parts of the unincorporated Harris County north to FM 1960, has come to expect the skills and experience of a man who always kept one foot in Acres Homes even as he became an institution in Austin. But that longtime representative, voters should remember, began as a young attorney. We encourage Democratic Party voters to look for a candidate who will emulate Turner's successful model of connecting constituents' interests

with the levers of state power in Austin. We believe that Kimberly Willis will be that candidate. Willis' experience as a former staffer in the Legislature and as a social worker in Houston gives her a comprehensive view of the ways in which government programs can impact neighborhoods. "I understand what good public policy does for a community," she told the Houston Chronicle editorial board. Willis, 31, places specific focus on criminal justice issues, especially juvenile justice. As a behavioral specialist with the Harris County juvenile probation department, her expertise would be a fine addition to a legislature that looks ready to tackle criminal justice reform. Willis received her undergraduate degree from Baylor University, a master's degree in forensic psychology from Prairie View A&M and a master's in social work from the University of Houston. Also running for the position are Randy Bates, 66, a former Lone Star College trustee; Jerry Ford Jr., 23, a student activist; and Jarvis Johnson, 44, a former member of Houston City Council. Ford has an impressive passion and said he is running to spark a movement of youth involvement in politics, but he could use a little more experience. Bates and Johnson both have that experience as elected officials. However, Bates relied too much on vagaries when he talked with the editorial board. Johnson faced allegations of unethical and illegal behavior while on City Council, including allegations of trying to direct city contracts and being charged with evading arrest. He was never indicted or convicted, but too many questions still remain about Johnson's political ethics. Of all the candidates, Willis has the best balance of on-the-ground knowledge and legislative experience. After more than a quarter-century with Sylvester Turner, voters should send another young, ambitious product of Acres Homes up to Austin.
