District E Community Contacts


Clear Lake Super Neighborhood

Residents of District E,


The District E office is gearing up for a busy spring season at City Hall and around the district. I wanted to highlight some important happenings for you to be aware of that will be occurring in the coming months.  


City Council will soon be in full swing as we begin the Fiscal Year 2015 budget process. We begin this process with a series of council operating budget workshops that will last several weeks. These workshops are crucial to council members as well as each city department, and give departments the opportunity to propose their core services within their budget, items that are critical for successful operation and ranking of other functions based on priority. At the conclusion of the series of meetings City Council will take action on the proposed operating and capital budget, which occurs in late June. I will be sure to keep you all updated via newsletters and social media about important items related to the FY 2015 budget.  


Other happenings occurring in District E include the exciting relocation of the 747 Shuttle Carrier Aircraft that will be moving from Ellington Airport to its permanent home at Space Center Houston on April 28-29. The shuttle model, Independence, named by Tim Judd of Kingwood, was moved to Space Center Houston during the summer of 2012 and will be mounted on top of the 747 aircraft. This will be the only landmark exhibit in the world that will have a full-scale Space Shuttle model and iconic Shuttle Carrier Aircraft (SCA-905) in classic piggyback configuration. The new complex will provide new opportunities to expand Space Center Houston's award-winning educational programs, inspiring students to pursue careers in the field of math and science.  


In the north sector of District E, be on the lookout for information and notices regarding a series of public stakeholder meetings that will take place over the next six to eight months. These meetings will provide an open-house opportunity for community input on the ongoing Kingwood Area Mobility Plan and Traffic Study. Data from traffic counts and information that has been collected from around the Kingwood area will be presented to the public where those in attendance will be able to provide their comments. As the dates are finalized, my office will be sure to distribute meeting details. We welcome all to attend these meetings to get the latest information and firsthand information about this significant regional traffic study.  


As mentioned, this is a busy time in and around the district. I look forward to being out in the community and working hard to represent you. As always, please never hesitate to contact my office if you have any questions or feedback. Have a safe and blessed spring.

Welcome Erin McAnally to the District E Office

Council Member Martin would like to invite you to welcome District E's newest employee, Erin McAnally, to our office.


Erin joins the District E team as a Kingwood native, having lived in the community for nearly 24 years. Erin graduated in 2011 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Political Science from the University of Houston. After graduation, she interned as a district aide for Texas State Representative Dan Huberty at his Kingwood district office. There, she assisted residents by answering phone calls, writing and answering correspondence, attending community events, and working with the staff at the Capitol. Erin brings her experience working in Representative Huberty's office to the District E council office to aide in assisting the residents of Kingwood as the North Sector Manager.  


Erin is thrilled to be working for her home town and serving the constituents of District E. In her free time, Erin spends her time with her friends, family, husband, and their three dogs. Her husband is a diehard LSU fan, so they try to attend at least two games a year.

Council Member Martin attended the 2nd Annual Friends of Scouting Campaign luncheon on March 6 alongside Harris County Commissioner, Jack Cagle, Humble Independent School District Superintendent, Dr. Guy M.

The America's Heroes First Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, non-partisan organization dedicated to the mission of serving America's military families to meet their growing and currently underserved needs. By creating a sustainable source of funding through grassroots organization and volunteer efforts, the AHFF seeks to provide critical support to America's heroes - the active duty, veterans, reserve, and retired, men, women and families in need of assistance who have served in the U.S. Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force and Coast Guard. Through the efforts of its non-compensated board and supporters who have generously underwritten its operational costs, the AHFF is able to guarantee that 100% of donations will be delivered to directly to military families and veterans in need.


Council Member Martin thanks the America's Heroes First Foundation for its mission in supporting the brave men and women who serve our country and their families who share in this ultimate sacrifice. He also thanks Mr. and Mrs. Carson of Kingwood for hosting the event.

Bay Area Houston Economic Partnership "State of the Economy" Luncheon

Council Member Martin attended the Bay Area Houston Economic Partnership's Annual "State of the Economy" luncheon on March 5 at Landry's at the Kemah Boardwalk. The luncheon, presented by BAHEP's Small Business Committee, featured remarks from Dr. Robert W. Gilmer, the Director of the Institute for Regional Forecasting in the University of Houston's Bauer College of Business. Dr. Gilmer's presentation, entitled "Houston Economy Solid in 2014: But the Sources of Growth are Changing," gave a positive report about the current and future state of Houston's economy, citing continued job growth driven by the strong energy industry. Council Member Martin thanks Dr. Gilmer for the useful insight into Houston's economic health and also thanks BAHEP for continuing to promote economic development in the Bay Area.

United States Coast Guard Sector Houston-Galveston Ribbon Cutting Ceremony


On March 10, Council Member Martin attended the ribbon cutting ceremony as the United States Coast Guard's Sector Houston-Galveston opened their new Maritime Interagency Operation Center at Ellington Airport. The 117,000 square foot facility acts as the headquarters for the Coast Guard command center, investigative services, electronic support, public affairs and regional civil rights office. Approximately 300 Coast Guard employees will staff the new headquarters, joining the Army, Navy and Marine Corps members present at the airfield.


Council Member Martin presented a certificate of recognition following the ceremony to Captain Brian Penoyer, Commander of Coast Guard Sector Houston-Galveston, welcoming him and the other men and women of the USCG to Ellington.


In December 2005, the United States Coast Guard created Sector Houston-Galveston by integrating three major area commands (Vessel Traffic Service Houston, Group Galveston, and Marine Safety Office Houston) into one Sector structure to adjust to the operational demands of the post-9/11 environment. Currently, the Sector consists of approximately 1,800 Active Duty, Reserve, Civilian and Coast Guard Auxiliary Members and six departments and branches: Response, Prevention, Logistics, Waterways Management, Planning and Readiness, and the Sector Command Center.  

Space Center Rotary Club Luncheon

On Monday, March 10, Council Member Martin joined Space Center Rotary members at their weekly meeting at Bay Oaks Country Club. Bay Area Houston Economic Partnership President, Bob Mitchell, was the featured guest speaker at the meeting and discussed ongoing local development and the state of the economy of the Bay Area. Additionally, he addressed other important projects that have an effect on the community including the Biggert Waters Act of 2012 as well as the proposed storm surge protection system known as the Ike Dike. Council Member Martin works closely with BAHEP on many projects occurring in the southern portion of District E and the City of Houston, and thanks Mr. Mitchell and his outstanding team for the work they do.

Save the Data: NASA's Shuttle Carrier Aircraft to be moved to Space Center Houston

The Boeing 747 Shuttle Carrier Aircraft (SCA) will be moved from its current location at Ellington Airport to its final display destination at Space Center Houston between 9:00 p.m. and 4:30 a.m. on April 28 and 29, 2014. Over the past several weeks, Boeing crews have been dismantling the aircraft into seven different pieces to prepare it for the nearly eight mile journey down Highway 3 to NASA Parkway to be displayed at Space Center Houston. The historic plane will join the full-sized space shuttle mockup "Independence" in an upcoming $12 million, six-story educational exhibit that will open to the public in early 2015.


The City of Houston's Public Works and Engineering Department, in coordination with the City of Webster and a hired contractor, is working on adjusting traffic signals and lanes during the move, which is not expected to impede traffic flow during the most heavily traveled periods of the day. Should traffic plans change, Council Member Martin's office will notify the public in a timely manner.


The SCA was acquired by the Johnson Space Center in 1974 for operational use in NASA's Space Shuttle program. The once commercial aircraft was then heavily modified and outfitted with shuttle mounting support structures to become NASA's primary carrier aircraft. Over the course of its career, the SCA accrued over 11,000 flight hours and completed the vast majority of the post-mission ferry flights during the shuttle program. It also carried shuttles to and from special events in the U.S. and abroad and served as the primary means to transport retired shuttles to the museums at which they are currently being displayed.

South Channel Region Chambers "State of the County" Luncheon

On Thursday, March 20, Council Member Martin attended the "State of the County" luncheon and address presented by the South Channel Region Chambers of Commerce, which includes the Clear Lake Area, South Belt-Ellington, Pasadena, Deer Park, City of South Houston, Laporte-Bayshore Chambers. This year's address was delivered by Harris County Commissioner Jack Morman, who gave general updates on projects occurring in Harris County Precinct 2. 


During the luncheon, Council Member Martin had the pleasure of sitting with representatives from Memorial Hermann Hospital, which has 12 locations throughout the City of Houston including Memorial Hermann Northeast which services the Kingwood area and Memorial Hermann Southeast which serves many of the constituents in the southern portion of District E. He thanks all the participating chambers for presenting the event and Commissioner Morman for his insightful remarks.  

Assistance League of the Bay Area Proclamation Presentation

At the public session of City Council on March 25, Council Member Martin presented a proclamation to representatives from the Assistance League of the Bay Area recognizing its milestone 25th year of service to the community and the 14 charter members currently contributing monetary aid and volunteer effort to the organization.


Since 1935, the national non-profit Assistance League has worked through its local chapters to provide invaluable support to those in need in communities throughout America. In 1988, seventy four charter members established the Bay Area auxiliary of the Assistance League of Houston. Today, the Bay Area chapter includes over 200 adult volunteers and over 400 male and female high school students who comprise the branch's Assisteens Auxiliary. The chapter also supports seven local Bay Area philanthropies and contributed over 25,000 volunteer hours in FY 2013, providing over $500,000 worth of value to the community according to U.S. Government conversion standards.


On April 5, the Bay Area chapter will hold its annual gala to recognize the charter members who contribute greatly to the organization and to cap off its celebration of a quarter century's work providing assistance to communities in Southeast Houston. Council Member Martin once again congratulates the Assistance League of the Bay Area for reaching this incredible milestone, and hopes District E will benefit from its compassionate service for years to come.

Clear Lake Area Chamber of Commerce General Membership Luncheon 


On March 26, Council Member Martin attended the Clear Lake Area Chamber of Commerce General Membership Luncheon at the Hilton Houston NASA Clear Lake.

Mr. Ching spoke to the crowd about the Dash, who is owned and operated by the successful Dynamo franchise and will play 12 home games in 2014 at BBVA Compass Stadium, the  arena completed in 2012 just east of downtown where the Dynamo also play. The Dash have begun their preseason competing against college teams throughout Texas, and will open their regular season at home on April 12 against the Portland Thorns in the 2nd year of NSWL play. As a soccer dad, Council Member Martin thanks Mr. Ching for the exciting news and for helping to bring a professional women's soccer franchise to Houston.

South Shaver Road Reconstruction Update

The $13.5 million South Shaver Road Reconstruction project has made progress since it was initiated in Summer 2013 by the Texas Department of Transportation (TXDoT) and the City of Houston. A number of elements of the project are 100% complete, including the sanitary sewer lines, the waterline installation, and the reinforced concrete boxes and wing walls at Berry Bayou. Other aspects of the project remain in construction. TXDoT is currently working on the detour roads to implement the newer revised Traffic Control Plan (TCP). Additionally, work continues on the detention pond, and work is now starting on the large 12x5 storm sewer boxes running down the center of Shaver Road. At this time, the project is reported to be 30% complete overall with anticipated completion in late 2015.


Council Member Martin's office will continue to follow progress on this project and keep the public updated of any changes. Please contact the office at (832) 393-3008 should any questions arise.

Allendale Road Panel Replacement Project Completed

The Allendale Road Concrete Panel Replacement Project, a $220,000 Rebuild Houston initiative serving to improve the District E roadway by repairing existing deterioration from Howard Drive to Forest Oaks Drive, was completed by the City of Houston in mid-March 2014.


Concrete panel replacement is utilized to repair and rehabilitate cracked sections of concrete streets. In addition to replacing concrete panels in the roadway, the Allendale project also provided repairs to the curbs running along the street. By improving the quality of life and mobility for residents through the reconstruction of roadway infrastructure, the Allendale Road Concrete Panel Replacement Project is a prime example of the ReBuild Houston program at work in District E.


For questions, email the District E office at or call 832.393.3008. To learn more about the ReBuild Houston program, visit

30th Annual "March on Crime" Press Conference

On March 3, Council Member Martin attended the 30th Annual "March on Crime" press conference held at the headquarters of the Houston Police Department. The "March on Crime" initiative began in 1984 as an effort to inform the citizens of Houston about trends in crime across the city and effective crime prevention strategies. 

At the press conference, Houston Police Chief Charles A. McClelland, Jr., alongside Mayor Annise Parker, announced four areas the department would focus on and inform the community about this year. Human trafficking was one of the chief's top priorities as it is an international and local problem that HPD wants to eradicate throughout the city. Chief McClelland also spoke about robbery prevention, which the department wants to educate residents and business owners alike on. Additionally, Chief McClelland mentioned pedestrian and bicycle safety, which he would like to emphasize as Houston has seen a recent increase in incidents involving driver and pedestrian inattention. Lastly, he addressed motor vehicle robbery, which Chief McClelland stated is Houston's most frequent kind of property theft and can be avoided by removing valuables from your vehicle when leaving it unattended.


Council Member Martin would like to thank the Houston Police Department for continuing this important campaign into its 30th year, and he reminds all the residents of District E to report any suspicious activity immediately and to practice crime prevention vigilantly.

"International Days" at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo
This year, during the International Committee's "International Days" at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, Council Member Martin had the honor of welcoming nearly 100 delegates from Guatemala and over 25 delegates from Poland on behalf of the City of Houston. The International Committee designates this series of days annually to host and welcome a number of foreign ranchers, livestock producers and buyers visiting the Rodeo. Professional interpreters and other forms of assistance are provided to ensure guests from around the world are able to learn about different agriculture industry practices and participate in all aspects of the show. Council Member Martin thanks the International Committee for its hard work and hospitality throughout the rodeo and would like to especially thank members of the Guatemalan and Polish delegations for visiting Houston and truly making this the largest livestock show and rodeo in the world. 
Houston Police Officers' Union General Meeting

Council Member Martin attended the monthly Houston Police Officers' Union  general meeting on March 6. The meeting, held at the HPOU headquarters, was lead by current HPOU Board of Directors President, Ray Hunt, who discussed a variety of topics including recent HFD negotiations with the city, an upcoming active shooter class available to the general public, annual HPOU scholarship applications and a variety of resources available to Houston Police Department officers. During the meeting, Mr. Hunt also took the opportunity to recognize Officer Linda Tweedie, who is currently recovering from the tragic motorcycle accident last month which took the life of her late husband, retired HPD Officer Dana Tweedie. Mr. Hunt additionally drew attention to a fundraiser taking place on April 4 for injured HPD Sergeant Philip Mulford. Council Member Martin will keep these brave officers in his thoughts and prayers, and he thanks all the men and women willing to make the ultimate sacrifice in serving to protect the citizens of the City of Houston.

Greater Houston Partnership's "State of the Airports" Luncheon

Council Member Martin attended the Greater Houston Partnership's (GHP) "State of the Airports" luncheon on March 13 at the Westin Oaks Houston. The address is an annual event highlighting the importance of air transportation in the city and the future of the renowned Houston Airport System, which includes George Bush Intercontinental Airport, Hobby Airport and Ellington Airport. GHP President and CEO, Bob Harvey, opened with remarks on the role of the Houston Airport System in making the city a hub of global economic activity. Mr. Harvey also drew attention to the recent efforts to achieve spaceport designation for Ellington Airport, a unique opportunity he believes the area is well-equipped for. Next up to the podium was the Mayor's Chief Development Officer, Andy Icken, whose remarks underlined Houston's dependency on international commerce and how the city's airport system should serve as a gateway to the business community. Additionally, Houston Airport System Aviation Director, Mario C. Diaz, spoke and announced that in 2015 Hobby Airport will resume international air service for the first time in nearly 50 years and that the Airport System as a whole added three new international air carriers to its roster, generating billions of dollars of economic activity in the area. Director Diaz also echoed Mr. Harvey's support of commercial spaceport designation for Ellington Airport, arguing that Houston needs to bepositioned to compete in the upcoming evolution of the multi-billion dollar aerospace industry.

Council Member Martin Rides in the Tour de Houston

On Sunday, March 16, Council Member Martin joined Mayor Annise Parker, Texas State Senator Rodney Ellis, fellow Council Members and Houston residents of all ages and cycling levels to ride in the Tour de Houston presented by Apache Corporation. The tour, a BP MS 150 recommended event, featured three distance options all starting and ending downtown at Hermann Square in front of City Hall and served to promote physical fitness and alternative forms of transportation in Houston. Council Member Martin participated in the long-distance 60 mile ride with stops at the Apache Corporation, Ray Day Elementary School and Cora Johnson Park.


Funds raised from this year's tour will go towards the city's RE-Plant Houston reforestation program managed by the Houston Parks and Recreation Department (HPARD). 

Greater Houston Convention and Visitors Bureau Annual Meeting 


Council Member Martin attended the Greater Houston Convention and Visitors Bureau's (GHCVB) Annual Meeting on March 26 at the Wortham Theater downtown. The event celebrated the GHCVB's 50th year promoting economic development in the greater Houston area and highlighted the organization's core mission and objectives. The staff is dedicated to working hard to generate film and commercial projects for the region, market the City of Houston around the globe, attract conventions and other major events to the area, establish Houston as a choice destination for tourism, and create opportunities for economic growth and development in the city. The GHCVB reported meeting or exceeding its organizational objectives in 2013 across most of these target areas, and expressed optimism that the next 50 years will be even better than the last as Houston continues to grow into a choice destination for tourism and major conventions. Council Member Martin thanks the GHCVB for its excellent work attracting economic activity to the city and promoting Houston as a great place to visit. 

City Council Passes BARC Ordinance Revisions

On Wednesday, March 25, City Council passed revisions to Chapter 6 of the City of Houston Code of Ordinances relating to BARC, Houston's animal control and regulation bureau. The revisions, which were developed jointly by city officials and a number of stakeholders from Houston's animal advocacy community, intend to empower BARC to more effectively administer humane animal control throughout Houston. The update also served to clarify certain outdated sections of the policy and lay down concrete guidelines regulating pet ownership within the city limits.


One substantive addition to the policy was the creation of Dangerous/Aggressive/Public Nuisance Dog Designations which may be applied by the city to dogs who have demonstrated threatening or otherwise disruptive behavior in the public right of way. The Chapter 6 revisions also empower BARC to now spay or neuter animals on their first impoundment, a measure intended to reduce the number of stray animals in Houston. Clarifications were additionally made to certain aspects of the policy, such as the chain of ownership to and from BARC. The agency may now obtain legal ownership of an unclaimed animal after no more than 6 days.


The revisions to the Code of Ordinances relating to BARC were spurred by a belief among city officials that the previous policy was outdated and that the state of animal control in Houston needed to be addressed.

Draft Revisions to City's Financial Policies Released  


The Budget and Fiscal Affairs Committee (BFA), for which Council Member Martin serves as Vice-Chair, released a comprehensive draft of proposed revisions to the city's financial policies at the BFA Committee meeting on Thursday, March 27. The proposed changes aim to increase the city's reserve funds, inject integrity and transparency into the budget process, and include financial best practices developed by the Government Finance Officers Association.   


The draft proposal includes increasing the city's minimum required reserve level to 8% of annual expenditures to protect the city from financial risk. The revisions would also increase the minimum level of the city's Rainy Day Fund, require the passage of a balanced budget annually, rework the financing of employee entitlements in order to fully fund all liabilities, properly maintain the funding of all facilities, fleet and information technologies and implement other additional policy revisions to enhance the long-term viability and integrity of the city's budget and its budget process.


The drafted revisions, once finalized, will be incorporated into an ordinance which will also include a proposed change of the date on which the city's fiscal year would begin. This measure will then be brought before City Council for approval. For more information on the committee's draft, please click here.
