We're #1 On The Ballot!
box_top.gif

Our campaign is excited to announce that my name will appear first on the November ballot for the Houston City Council, At-Large Position 4 race!

 

That means that all you have to do when you get to the voting booth in November is pick the first name on the ballot in the At-Large 4 race. – Amanda Edwards is #1 for Houston!

 

Our campaign is moving full steam ahead to a victory this November! With less than six weeks away from the start of Early Voting on October 19th, we need your continued support and help to spread our message across the City of Houston. Please contact us to get a yard sign, volunteer, or to make a contribution



Amanda on the Issues: Livability

Over the past few months I have been out in the community talking with voters and citizens about how they envision the future of Houston. While we’ve talked about countless issues on the trail, one issue that keeps coming up is Houston’s livability.

houston_619

Expanding our greenspace and enhancing our bayou infrastructure with trails support livability. With Houston encompassing such a large geographical area, accessing greenspace can be difficult for Houstonians in many parts of the city. By enhancing and connecting the City’s greenspaces and parks, we can improve quality of life all across town.

 

One project that seeks to make Houston greener and more livable is the Bayou Greenways initiative. This project – which has already begun work across the city – is making Houston’s separate bayous one interconnected system. The Bayou Greenways initiative adds 150 miles of hike and bike trails along the city’s waterways.

 

As a Council Member I will work towards long-term solutions to some of the city’s biggest challenges. That includes working together to build a greener, more livable city of the future, and it means creating a city that draws strength from its neighborhoods. 

 

But this work starts with you! I’ll need your voice, your work, and your support as we move closer to Election Day to help move all of Houston forward.



Our Support is Growing!
