HOUSTON- Texas State Senator Sylvia R Garcia representing District 6 including north and east

portions of Harris County, filed for re-election with the Harris County Democratic Party this morning, November 14; the first day to file for a place on the March Primary ballot.

I have fought for our community for 26 years as a public servant and I look forward to continuing the fight to protect our schools, our jobs and our families.”
