Interview with Council Member Melissa Noriega

Melissa NoriegaOne of the things planned to do with my interview series this year is include conversations with incumbent Council members. I’ve started on those and hope to get to all of them just as I hope to get to as many candidates as I can. My first incumbent interview subject is someone I consider a friend, as well as an excellent Council member, At Large #3 Council Member Melissa Noriega. She won a special election in 2007 to fill the seat vacated by Shelley Sekula Gibbs when she ran for Congress and has served since then. Previously, she worked for 27 years in HISD, and served one term in the State Legislature in 2005 while her husband, former State Rep. Rick Noriega, was serving in Afghanistan.

Currently, CM Noriega has no opponent for November. I would happily endorse her for re-election regardless of that. She has done an outstanding job, and is a credit to the city as well as to City Council.
