Together We Will Make A Difference
Dear Dedicated Democrat,
If we are going to reduce crime, improve education and revitalize our neighborhoods in District 146, we are going to have to do it together. I am ready to partner with the residents in our communities to help lead this essential effort.
As your State Representative, my focus will be empowering Civic Clubs, community leaders and local business owners to make sure that you have a seat at the table and a meaningful voice in the decision making process.
I am a life long resident of District 146, graduate of Howard University, and the Thurgood Marshall School of Law at Texas Southern University. I have been an attorney for more than twenty years.
As a mother, and product of the public education system, I understand the importance of good schools and that a better education funding formula will improve the schools in our District (146) and across the city.
As a small business owner, I know first-hand the kind of hard work that is required to succeed. We need a level playing field and access to public and private sector contracting opportunities. I will be a champion of local businesses, diversity and inclusion. A small business advisory group will help me with these issues.
Higher education is important. All the young people in District 146 should have access to an affordable, quality education and work force training. I will work with local colleges, universities, churches and community organizations to help secure scholarship funding for our high school graduates. Together, I want us to encourage and celebrate academic achievement among our children and grandchildren.
During the 2017 legislative session, I plan to address education, jobs, public safety, community revitalization, and focus on securing more funding to fix flooding here at home and throughout the region. I will also work to secure more services for seniors and funding for improved health care in the District.
We have serious work to do and together we will get it done.
Shawn N. Thierry, Esq.
State Representative, District 146
