Statement from Wanda Adams on District D runoff

(I have asked the candidates involved in next Saturday’s runoff to send me a brief statement saying why people should vote for them in that runoff. I will run the responses for candidates for each race concurrently. This statement is from Wanda Adams in District D.)

Today I say thank you to everyone in District D for your support in the general election, and I humbly ask for your vote in the December 8th run-off election. It is a privilege and an honor to have received the most votes of the seven exceptional candidates in the November general election. Voters have shown that they believe that “Experience is the Difference,” and experience is needed to improve the quality of life for all residents of District D. Experience is also needed to keep our community moving forward.

Each day that I walk the neighborhoods of District D, I am reminded of what makes our community so great—the people. I have had the honor to meet, work alongside, and befriend many wonderful neighbors in our district. I will consider it a true privilege to serve all residents of District D as their representative on Houston City Council once I am elected.

Helping to create good, healthy, quality lives for Houstonians has always been my passion. Over the years, whether as a student at TSU or as an employee of this great city, I have served the citizens of Houston by working directly with the Super Neighborhoods and the civic clubs of District D to address issues of infrastructure, affordable housing, and to increase constituent services. My commitment to the environment has led me to conduct community education workshops, which educate citizens about recycling and solid waste procedures of the City of Houston. As a result of these efforts, the Mayor asked me to coordinate Houston’s “Go Green Initiative.”

To best realize the limitless potential of District D, all residents deserve to have a voice. Most importantly, they deserve accessibility to their councilmember who will work not only to confront their issues but to get resolutions for their concerns.

In District D:

I have faith in our ability to create significant economic development opportunities;

I have faith in our ability to improve the environmental quality of our neighborhoods;

I have faith in our ability to increase public safety for all citizens;

I have faith in our ability to provide affordable housing options for those who dream of home ownership;

I have faith in our ability to improve the quality of the roads and sidewalks that lead them home.

These issues impact District D every day, and the issues I will spend my time on council addressing.

We must preserve what we love about our community and have the determination to fight for what we believe in. I encourage you to elect me as your council member because I have the wisdom and the skill to make a difference. Experience is the difference!

I hope to have your vote on December 8th.

Thank you, Wanda Adams. Please click here for a statement from Lawrence Allen.
