Dear Friends,

In my election for the State Senate last month, 15,339 turned out to vote. I avoided a runoff by 55 votes. Every vote matters.

I am reminding you to go vote early in the State Representative District 145 Special Election. This election is important to our community. We need to elect a successor to our state house district who will work with me on school finance, Harvey recovery, and affordable health care for all families.

You can vote early from 7 am to 7 pm now through this Friday, January 25. The early voting locations are as follows:

Harris County Law Library - Conference Center
1019 Congress Avenue, 77002

Moody Park Community Center
3725 Fulton Street, 77009

Ripley House Neighborhood Center
4410 Navigation Boulevard, 77011

H.C.C.S. Southeast College Parking Garage
6960 Rustic Street, 77087

Harris County Scarsdale Annex

Please take the time and make a plan to vote early over the next couple of days. Make sure you take your family and remind your friends and co-workers to also vote. In this special election, your vote will certainly count. For more information visit

Thank you and go vote.
