Houston City Council At-large #1 candidate Conchita Reyes has added democracy to her campaign website after discussion with the Houston Democracy Project.
Ms. Reyes' words well-reflect her pre-exisiting commitment to freedom for all.
(Picture above is Ms. Reyes at a recent community forum.)
Here is what Ms. Reyes' says on the front page of her campaign website:
"As a strong advocate for democracy, I am committed to upholding its principles and working tirelessly to represent the interests and aspirations of the people I serve. I firmly believe in the power of democracy as the cornerstone of our society, ensuring that every voice is heard and valued.
Democracy empowers us to shape our collective future, fostering inclusivity, diversity and collaboration."
Ms. Reyes is the fourth Houston '23 municipal candidate so far to add protection and support of democracy to their campaign websites after talking with the Houston Democracy Project. The other three are Obes Nwabara for At-Large #2, Donnell Cooper for At-Large #3 and Ivan Sanchez in District J. Ethan Michelle Ganz for At-Large #3 also has strong pro-democracy language on their campaign website.
The Houston Democracy Project is working everyday to make protection and expansion of democracy a top issue in 2023 Houston city politics & to inspire, organize and strengthen pro-democracy coalitions in Houston.
Protecting democracy is a big issue in Houston city politics. We've lost our elected school board in what just 60 years ago was a Jim Crow city. Local Republican voters, candidates and officials are strongly aligned with the authoritarian vision of Donald Trump and the Republican Party. We need to be ready to respond, organize and protect ourselves.
