Houston, TX (October, 2013) The Oak Forest Area Democrats endorsed Jenifer Rene Pool for City Council At Large Position 3 on Wednesday, Oct. 2.

“Jenifer represents one of the most qualified candidates for city council, and I was proud to vote for her endorsement,” said Scott Tillinghast, a longtime member of the Oak Forest Dems.

“I am very honored and humbled to be endorsed by the Oak Forest Area Democrats and thank them for their support,” said Jenifer Pool. “They have long been very active and very effective in city races.”

Jenifer Rene Pool serves on the city’s Building and Standards Commission, a position to which she is honored to have been appointed by both Mayor Parker and former Mayor Bill White. Jenifer also serves on the Public Safety Advisory Committee and the Special Task Force on Film in Houston.

Jenifer’s message is getting noticed

Houston municipal elections are non-partisan, but from the actions of some political campaigns, you wouldn’t know it. Some candidates play exclusively to their assumed base, and ignore the needs and concerns of other constituents. But those other candidates are not Jenifer Rene Pool. Her views are resonating with Houstonians across the political spectrum.

Here’s what David Jennings, author of the Conservative blog Big Jolly Politics had to say after the Greater Houston Pachyderm Club’s Candidate Forum…

“Even though all of the candidates answered most questions similarly, if you look at actual substantive answers, I thought that Jenifer Rene Pool was the “best”. Her answers were responsive and to the point and I liked her statement about making those in power uncomfortable until they did something. Plus it was obvious that she deals with various city departments and knows the ins and outs of what they do. No question that she would be effective in holding the bureaucracy in check.”

Just like her career of service, Jenifer’s message rises above the fray of partisanship. She wants to be a voice for all Houstonians, regardless of their party affiliation. Join with Jenifer and help bring common sense leadership to Houston City Council. Together we can build a better Houston where it matters!!

Change Still Needed at the Permitting Center

We’ll just file this in the “You’ve got to be kidding” report. Today at the Houston permitting center, I was doing a one stop truss approval. After paying the fee I directly came back for my paperwork, but they had gone to lunch without leaving my work for me.
I then had to wait for them to get back from lunch because the paperwork is on their desk.

Houston is a great city, and there’s no other place in the world I’d rather be. But as Mayor Parker said recently, “the best can always get better”. Well when I’m elected, that process of getting better will start at the Houston Permitting Center.

A world- class city deserves world- class customer service!

An Eventful Week

It has been a busy, but eventful week. Wednesday we sponsored the Senior Lunch in Acres Homes multi-purpose center. I always cherish the time I get to spend with our Senior Citizens.

My heart goes out to dear friend Skipper Lee on the passing of his wife. I attended her wake earlier this week. Mr. Lee and family are still very much in my thoughts and prayers.

I also joined Reverend Willie Baker to attend the Acres Homes Super Neighborhood meeting. It’s important to hear directly from community leaders. I look forward to continuing these treasured relationships when elected to council, where I’ll have an even greater platform to serve Acres Homes, and other great Houston communities.

Back to School in Fifth Ward

This morning I was blessed to attend New Macedonia Baptist Church. I was one of the sponsors for the back to school supplies event. Pastor Hector and the congregation honored me with an award for my years of support to the children of Fifth Ward. The award was a complete surprise. Pastor Terrence Hall from T H Ministries gave a wonderful sermon to the children of the church.

As thankful as I am for the award, the best thing is knowing that the childrens’ school year will be off to great a start. Our children are Houston’s future, and we know that caring for them today means a better tomorrow for Fifth Ward, and for us all.

Another day at the Houston Permitting Center

Monday was a another day at the Houston Permitting Center. I came here for a sales receipt to pay for a wastewater impact fee. The front desk sent me to the wrong area, and I had to wait an hour and a half to find the correct place to go. It was a very frustrating experience.

So I’ve got one question… Who’s watching over at the Permitting Center?

I’ll be watching out for you Houston. Our world-class city deserves world-class customer service, and when I’m elected, that’s what we’re going to get.
