Many of you have probably heard the chatter around redistricting for the Precincts, and I wanted you to hear the facts directly from me. Here’s what we know:

  • On Friday, October 15th, Commissioner Ellis released his proposed map that would put the majority of unincorporated Harris County into Precinct 4. (">Click here to view it)  
  • That weekend, a public hearing to discuss redistricting options was scheduled for Thursday, October 21st at 4 PM; however, no official notice was given to the public until mid-day on Monday, October 18th.
  • As of right now, only Precincts 3 and 4 have actively promoted the public hearing.

There are currently 4 proposed redistricting maps available for public review. They can be viewed">here. This includes Ellis’s recommendation, my recommendation, and two others from public individuals. Below are the concerns for the other proposals, specifically with Ellis’s.

Precinct 3 would lose:

  • 500,000 current constituents
  • Approximately 50% of roads, bridges, and drainage maintenance responsibilities
  • 29 parks and 5 community centers

Impacts to Harris County as a whole include:

  • Disruption to more than 25% of the County's population in terms of services due to the transition
  • The unincorporated area (the source of growth for Harris County) will be underserved
  • During a storm event, it would be impossible to respond effectively to communities 60 miles apart (distance from Baytown to Katy)
  • Voter demographic unfairly represented

I’m not going to sugarcoat this. Ellis’s plan is worrisome. The probability of this passing is possible unless Harris County residents get loud, so loud that we force this to litigation. Under his proposed plan, over a million people will be negatively impacted, majority of which are unincorporated residents.

I can tell you that I am fighting my hardest to keep us intact. But I need your help in getting the word out. Tell your friends. Tell your family. Tell all the constituents you interact with – anyone and everyone in Harris County. There is a big problem headed our way, and they need to be heard at tomorrow’s public hearing.">Click here for details.

This is urgent, and now is the time to act.
