Upon taking office, Commissioner Lesley Briones launched a 12-stop listening tour to hear directly from Precinct 4 constituents. Hundreds of residents attended to meet the Commissioner and provide constructive feedback about the issues most important to their communities. Each event also featured presentations from key stakeholders, including Harris County Flood Control District, Harris Health, Texas General Land Office, and the Harris County Department of Engineering, along with booths where resources were made available.
With comments ranging from sidewalk gaps in Katy to flood resilience in Meyerland to transit needs in Alief, constituents shared real time information about their priorities directly with the Commissioner and members of her team.
“Being a commissioner isn’t about having a platform to take hold of the megaphone and tell people what you want to do — it’s about turning that megaphone around to listen to and learn from the people,” Commissioner Briones said. “I launched this listening tour because it’s critical to hear what matters most to those I am serving so I can advocate for policies and resources that best improve their quality of life.”
