HOUSTON, TX – On its last monthly meeting, Green Forest Civic Club (GFCC) received candidates Carol Alvarado who is running for Texas State Senate District 6 and Phillip Aronoff, running for the United States Congress in the 29th District of Texas. These seats are now occupied by Sen. Sylvia Garcia and Congressman Gene Green respectively and their terms will end the last day of the year.

The residents gathered at the meeting to have their questions and concerns answered in lively discussions with both candidates.

Ms. Alvarado shared many of her past accomplishments as a city council member and state representative, and that if elected state senator she would advocate an agenda that would benefit all members of our community.

Mr. Aronoff said he had a lot of experience in business and politics, welcomed and approved of new immigrants to the U.S., and that if he got elected he would fight to empower the people.

Also attending the meeting were Green Forest Civic Club Board Members Shirley Reed, Marina Flores Sugg and Armando Cordona as well as Lucy Hernandez and Denise Rath, civic club members.

There were six newcomers that live in GFCC neighborhoods, and several others that lived in other parts of East Aldine.

The Civic Club Board was pleased that East Aldine was well represented by residents of all ages and from different areas of East Aldine. Until next month!
