District F Residents,

As we approach Independence Day, I would like to wish everyone a safe and joyful holiday weekend.  We deserve the chance to be with our loved ones. But with COVID-19 positive tests still on the rise, we must remember to stay vigilant and continue to protect ourselves and our loved ones by practicing social distancing and wearing facial coverings.  Thank you for your continued efforts to combat the coronavirus.

Have a wonderful 4th of July!


Last night’s Youth-led Conversation on Public Safety was an overwhelming success.  Thoughtful questions were met with thoroughly detailed answers.  This robust dialogue between everyday citizens and police officials is essential to rebuilding trust in our communities.  We would like to express our sincere appreciation to Vice Mayor Pro-Tem Martha Castex-Tatum and My Brother’s Keeper for their partnership in this endeavor, as well as the HPD officials, Council Members, community leaders, and residents who attended.

And lastly, we would like to thank our high school students from Alief Elsik, Alief Hastings, Madison, Willowridge, and Westbury for displaying tremendous agency and leadership in spearheading this event.  They fully understood the gravity of this moment and the importance of civic engagement.  Our future is bright with these young leaders at the forefront.

We would like to thank District F resident Carla Sue for raising awareness of July as Minority Mental Health Month.

“July is Minority Mental Health Month. I challenge black people and all people of color to prioritize your mental health, especially in these trying times. If you are seeking help or looking for a therapist of color, please follow @melaninandmentalhealth. They are doing such great work and are committed to connecting our communities to therapists who understand us.”
