My name is Martina Lemond Dixon, and I am running for Houston City Council District E. As you know, Councilmember Dave Martin is term limited and we, the citizens of District E, are seeking new representation by a public servant who is committed to fully funding our police, eliminating wasteful spending, and putting the interests of Houston first. I am eager and prepared to take on that challenge by representing my neighbors on the City Council.
I am a third-generation Houstonian, a proud graduate of North Shore High School, and a 24-year resident of Kingwood. I graduated from Auburn University with a B.A. in Communications, later earning a Post Baccalaureate in Construction Management and a M.A. in Educational Leadership from Louisiana State University.
I am the chief executive officer of a small company, Board President of the HumbleISD School Board, Board Secretary of the Harris Central Appraisal District (HCAD), and most recently, I was appointed Commissioner on the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE) by Governor Greg Abbott, concurred by State Senator Brandon Creighton.
With a focus on decreasing crime, maintaining fiscal responsibility with transparency, and improving infrastructure, I will fight for our values and way of life here in Houston. I am dedicated to fighting for what is best for our community.
