Martha Castex-Tatum is “Our” Servant Leader

Martha Castex-Tatum has been rooted in public service since childhood. As a young girl, she eagerly tagged along with her father, the Block Captain for Keswick/Ramblewood Civic Club in District K, helping keep the community informed by block walking and passing out the Civic Club newsletter. There are many pioneers and lifelong residents of District K that reminisce over “Hello, I’m Martha Castex, please make your vote count!” Growing up in the Keswick/Ramblewood neighborhood, Martha learned the value of hard work and serving others. She attended Grissom Elementary, Parker Elementary and Welch Middle School, all in District K. Actively involved in numerous organizations and clubs growing up, Martha represented her community as a Brownie, Girl Scout, Junior Daughter, Basketball Player and the list goes on!

City Council’s District K’s office as the Director of Constituent Services since 2015. Today Martha is walking even taller and would be honored to lead and represent the residents of District K, which gave her a solid foundation and where she began her journey to success!

Martha Castex-Tatum is “Our” History-Making Community Leader

Martha is passionate about being rooted in the community she resides in. Upon graduating from Southwest Texas State University (now, Texas State University) in San Marcos, TX, where she earned her Bachelor of Business Administration and Master of Public Administration degrees, she began expressing her Voice in political service. She has since served as an adjunct professor at the university. While in San Marcos, Martha’s desire to serve where she lives led her to unseat a 12-year City Council incumbent, becoming the first African American woman to be elected in the city’s history. During her tenure on the San Marcos City Council Martha served as Deputy Mayor Pro Tempore. The association of Mayors Council and Commissioners awarded Martha a certificate of achievement for her completion of continuing education unit credits for the Texas Municipal League Institute program. Only 41 certificates were awarded statewide that year. Martha


was a graduate of Leadership San Marcos – 1996. She also served on the San Marcos Economic Development Council and the Convention and Visitor Bureau.

Martha is “Our” Experienced Leader

In 2004, Martha returned to Houston and joined the bustling business community as a high-performing realtor with Keller Williams Realty, where she worked for ten years. A testament to her work ethic, Martha was named “Rookie of the Year” in her first year of business based on her production. Martha continued her real estate career with Berkshire Hathaway Home Services, where she currently assists new and existing residents with home sales and purchases and is consistently an award winning top producer. In addition to her career in real estate, Martha has been a faithful and loyal public servant to District K residents since 2015, Martha has worked with other District K staff members to address concerns of constituents while advocating for Seniors, small business owners, extracurricular and after school activities for youth, economic development and beautification projects, among other issues. She oversaw the progress for the new HPD police station in District K, the CASE after school grant process, the monthly Fort Bend and Hiram Clarke Bridging the Divide meetings, and numerous sidewalk, waterline, and street repair projects throughout the district. Martha represents the District K office monthly at the TIRZ 9 and 25 meetings as well as the Five Corners Management District meetings.

A few Democratic and Republican Primary Candidates Have Some Unfinished Business to Attend to on May 22, 2018 ANALYSIS BY AUBREY R. TAYLOR

There’s a lot of talk about Texas being a red state floating around. Sure, traditionally that has been the case. But after the historic showing put on display by Texas Democrats on Tuesday, March 6, 2018 reasonable minds would have to agree that the aforementioned distinction could possibly be on the verge of becoming a hue of a different shade in the very near future – if Democrats have anything to say about it in the fall. But Tuesday, November 6, 2018, the day when Democratic hopefuls and Republican hopefuls are set to face off is still a little way off. Before we get there, we must first take care of a little unfinished inter-party business. So, let’s not forget about Tuesday, May 22, 2018 a day when Democrats and Republicans who failed to capture a majority of the vote back on Tuesday, March 6, 2018 must square off once more against their fellow interparty rival in hopes of earning the “HIGHLY COVETED DISTINCTION” of “PARTY NOMINEE” for the Tuesday, November 6, 2018 Midterm Election!
