Mike Knox for Houston City Council, At-Large #1 The three important issues Houstonians face are the Budget, Infrastructure, and Public Safety. • We all need to live within our means…Including City Hall. • We deserve roads without potholes, that don’t flood. • And, our communities need to be safe.

HOUSTON”

Senfronia Thompson House District 141 - Houston, Texas

To curtail traditional low voter turnout, I partnered to host Houston's first Mayoral Runoff Forum this year, entitled "Progress Houston". Nearly 500 people packed the auditorium and those who couldn't attend watched online via Fox 26 Houston's live stream. I would like to thank all of the partners, panelists and attendees who made this voter empowerment initiative a success. This forum focused on the issues and everyone walked away with a clear understanding of each mayoral candidate's plan to "Progress Houston". Now that you are informed, please go to the polls, take someone with you and vote. If you need more information about runoff candidates, where to vote or transportation to the polls, please reference the information on page 4.

fxÇyÜÉÇ|t Yours for a better Texas,

Rep. Senfronia Thompson, District 141

“NEVER STOP SWINGING!”

We would like to congratulate Sylvester Turner, Bill King, Bill Frazer, Chris Brown, Mike Knox, Georgia Provost, Amanda Edwards, Roy Morales, Rhonda SkillernJones, Larry Williams, Steve Le, Richard Nguyen, Karla Cisneros, Jason Cisneroz, Mike Laster, Jim Bigham, David W. Robinson, Willie R. Davis, Jack Christie, Sharon Moses, Manuel Rodriguez, Jose Leal for going after their dream.

AUBREY R. TAYLOR: “Setting out to accomplish a goal and coming up short does not mean that you failed. Look, there's a big difference between failing, and coming up short. Who knows, the second, third, fourth, fifth, or one hundredth time could be the charm for you. The key is for us to never stop believing and trusting in the faithfulness of God. You can still win!!! You haven't failed until you disqualify yourself from the race of life. That's the awesome thing about where you are right now! So always be willing to step right back up to the plate. It only takes one swing of the bat to hit the home run you've been dreaming about!”

DEMOCRATIC PRIMARY

ERIC REED

TUESDAY, MARCH 1, 2016

For Harris County Constable - Precinct 3 Dear Fellow Constituents,

My name is James Eric Reed and I would like to take this opportunity to announce my candidacy for the Harris County Precinct 3 Constable position. Hence, I respectfully ask for your vote and your support in the 2016 primary election. Equally important is the fact that I am the proud son of the Late Mr. Elvin S. Reed and Patricia Reed. I am also younger brother to Donnie Reed and husband to Sandra C. Andrade-Reed. Together, Sandra and I have one child, Zane Reed. From a previous marriage I have 3 other children, Nikki, Erica and Prince and 4 grandchildren. Family is of utmost importance to me and that is why I want to continue serving our communities, our youth and your family.

I was born and raised in Barrett Station and it was there that I learned the value and importance of loyalty, trust and respect. Having lived in Harris County Precinct 3 since birth and having served as a Harris County Deputy since 1994, I have dedicated myself to the service of the people. At the age of 15 I served in the Barrett Station fire department as an EMS volunteer. Years later I served as captain of the fire department as well as a board member of the Crosby EMS team. As a Harris County Deputy, I have had the privilege of working in many schools including middle schools and high schools. Having worked at these schools has allowed me insight into the problems affecting our streets and our youth. I believe that my non-judgmental and fair approach in dealing with people has helped me positively impact many lives. I also believe that I have


helped guide and encourage many children onto a brighter and better future. Our children are our future and when I earn their trust and win their loyalty, I know I have done my job.

Furthermore, being a local resident, I am also well acquainted with the problems facing our communities. Therefore, as your Precinct 3 Constable, I will continue to dedicate myself and my department to the service of our communities and schools by identifying community needs, focusing on public safety, implementing crime prevention programs and allocating department resources to improving customer service. So, when elected, I will work diligently to restore a sense of trust, pride and efficiency back to Precinct 3 by being visible and accessible in our Precinct. Please vote ERIC REED and let me prove that together we can create a better quality of life for all.

Eric Reed

Sincerely Yours,
