Bringing Houston Together
Senator John Whitmire has a long record of fighting for the underdog and underrepresented. He has been on the frontlines of the battles for equity, e.g., fighting for voting rights, bringing bilingual education to Texas schools, opposing the banning of Asian residents from buying property, and including sexual orientation in the Hate Crimes Bill.
As mayor, Whitmire will keep Houston a welcoming city:
- Promoting the growth of minority and women owned businesses
- Ensuring historically forgotten neighborhoods receive the services they deserve
- Protecting the laws and ordinances that encourage diversity and equity
- Having an open dialogue with people from all parts of our city to truly understand their concerns
