THE CITY OF OPPORTUNITY

Sue's Story: Three Suitcases & $35

Sue Lovell moved to Houston in 1970 from Fresno, California with three suitcases, thirty five dollars, and two good friends. She was 19 years old. In the 49 years since, Sue has raised a family, owned a small business, started and led nonprofit organizations, worked in the corporate world and been a leader in politics. Sue served as Houston’s City Council Member At-Large, Position 2 for two terms. She also served as Vice Mayor Pro Tem—a position to which she was elected unanimously by her colleagues on the City Council.

GETTING IT DONE

Keep Houston Moving

Sue chaired the City Council’s powerful Transportation, Infrastructure and Aviation (TIA) committee, handling transportation and mobility issues, management of public utilities and rights-of-way infrastructure and matters relating to the Houston Airport system. She also chaired the Quality of Life Committee, which handled issues affecting parks and greenscape, billboards and signage, and litter and graffiti.

GROWING RIGHT

Creating a Prosperous Houston

Sue never bought the argument that Houston’s growth has to come at the expense of strong neighborhoods. Sue likes Houston’s reputation as a pro-growth, low-regulation business town and believes that historic preservation goes hand-in-hand with economic development. As a leader on Houston’s City Council, Sue put her past business experience to work for Houston to help both public and private sectors develop their economic potential throughout Harris, Galveston, and Brazoria counties.

LIFE OF SERVICE

A True Houstonian

Sue helped start AIDS Foundation Houston, which pioneered the nation’s first food pantry and residential housing facilities for people with AIDS and printed the nation’s first AIDS education brochures. When blood supplies were threatened by a lack of sophisticated screen tests, Sue helped bring together the Houston Blood Bank and gay community leaders to keep the blood supply safe. Today, Sue lives in Houston with her sons, her grandchildren, and her menagerie of pets.

WHAT HOUSTON NEEDS

Now, more than ever, our citizens trust that public safety will be a priority, that the services they pay for will be delivered efficiently and on time, and that there will be an investment in the city's infrastructure and their quality of life. I will honor that trust and deliver on those commitments.
