Economic Development

Houston has been fortunate to be a beacon for many business opportunities.  With our budget challenges and aging infrastructure, we cannot afford to lose sight of continuing to improve Houston as a world-class city.  It is often said, “So goes our schools, so goes our City.”  With proven leadership, I helped focus on building career pathways for students and on collaborating and aligning those with our most needed job opportunities.  I will continue to focus strategically and to collaborate to make sure Houston continues to maintain a climate of business prosperity.
