Call to Action By: Hugh Mayfield

HBCU call to action to all veterans, registered voters, Alum from Texas Southern University, Alum from Huston-Tillotson University and Alum from Prairie View A&M University.

I am asking you to vote for Ora Houston, candidate for City Council District #1. Early voting starts on December 1st and ends on December 12th. You can vote at any location that has a ‘vote here’ sign. You can vote, even if you did not vote on November 4th.

As a veteran, registered republican, and Alum from Texas Southern University, I fully support Ms. Houston and her vision for a better and prosperous Austin. She attended Dillard University and graduated from Huston-Tillotson University. She continues to be an active alumni, sharing her time and treasure with HT.

I have been involved in city government, served as Former City of Austin Environment Board member, Vice Chairman for the Flood Plane Task Force and Solid Waste Advisory Commission, and I know the effort and desire that exists in the heart of someone who chooses to serve their community.

Ms. Houston is one of a kind who is mindful of and sensitive to the diversity of people and the challenges 'real' people are exposed to on a daily basis.Her service to the community is undeniable and her passion for her neighbors is indisputable.

She has taken the time to explore, investigate and analyze the issues in our city and commits to bringing everyone to the table to work together and find the best solutions.

My request if you are reading this is: Please support Ora Houston and vote on December 1st when early voting begins, or on election day, December 16th.
