Jenna Armstrong, IOM, President/CEO of the Lake Houston Area Chamber of Commerce and Mark Mitchell, President of the Lake Houston Economic Development Partnership attended the LiftFund press conference yesterday, alongside many state officials, including Texas Governor, Greg Abbott.
Armstrong and Mitchell were able to directly speak to Abbott about adding a citizen from the Lake Houston Area to the San Jacinto River Authority’s board of directors, who are appointed by the governor of Texas.
Their conversation with the governor was promising, according to Armstrong. The governor’s office is aware of the #PleaFor3LakeHouston campaign and assured Armstrong and Mitchell that he is listening to the Lake Houston Area community.
Armstrong is hopeful that the governor will act quickly.
