TOP announces endorsed candidates for Houston City Council

Fresh off their endorsement this week of Sheila Jackson Lee for Houston Mayor, Texas Organizing Project (TOP) Harris County members have voted to endorse Tarsha Jackson for re-election to City Council Dist. B, Lloyd Ford for City Council Dist. D, and Dr. Letitia Plummer for re-election to City Council At-Large Position #4 in this November’s municipal election.

TOP board member Ray Brackens of Harris County:

Tarsha Jackson – a driving force behind TOP’s Right2Justice campaign – has been a fighter her whole life, from advocating for her son’s needs that turned into systemic shifts in juvenile justice, to building coalitions around immigrants’ rights and reforms to the criminal legal system. Tarsha has taken her passion to city council and hasn’t stopped. From her time as a TOP community organizer to city council member for District B, Tarsha’s  journey has been truly inspiring. Since day one, she’s championed the needs of Black and Latino families in Texas. Whether it’s battling illegal dumping, pushing for flooding mitigation upgrades, or advocating for community-focused solutions, like the BeSuccessful initiative that connects residents to good jobs and resources to get a second chance, Tarsha delivers. We’re eager to see her continued impact on our neighborhoods.”

TOP county leadership team member Cecilia Fontenot of Harris County:

Lloyd Ford understands the daily hardships of Black and Latino Houstonians because of his deeply held roots in District D. Passionate about racial and economic justice, Ford’s drive and vision make him a standout progressive for city council. He’s determined to challenge the status quo for our city’s hard-working residents and make a positive difference. With TOP backing him this election, we’re united in our mission to uplift every Houston community.”

TOP board member Perla Garcia of Harris County:

Dr. Letitia Plummer on Houston City Council is a game-changer. From COVID relief to housing justice, she’s a relentless advocate for Black and Latino communities. Dr. Plummer isn’t simply talk, she’s digging deep to address core issues and championing progressive solutions. With her, no Houstonian is left behind. TOP is excited to join forces with Dr. Plummer, empowering our city’s hardworking residents and driving Houston forward.”
