Armando L. Walle, Democratic candidate, will file for District 140 at the Harris County Democratic Party Headquarters Monday, December 3, 2007 at 10:00 A.M.
Armando Walle decided to run after witnessing the immense need for effective representation in Texas House District 140. Walle stated, “There are issues of great importance to parents, students, businesses and neighborhoods that continue to be neglected. District 140 deserves a State Representative that will fervently fight for better schools, access to affordable healthcare, flood prevention and public safety. I have the leadership skills, experience and education to hit the ground running and deliver for our community.”
Armando, the oldest of five children, is a native Houstonian. Armando grew up in Northeast Houston and graduated with Honors from MacArthur High School in the Aldine Independent School District. Armando was the first in his family to pursue higher education and proudly graduated from the University of Houston, earning a Bachelor of Science in Political Science and a Minor in Sociology. Armando began his career in public service by participating in the Texas Legislative Internship Program, sponsored by State Senator Rodney Ellis.
Armando went on to work for Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee. Soon after, he was brought on staff to the Office of Congressman Gene Green and was employed with Congressman Green for over six years. During that time, Armando led and worked on several community projects such as Citizenship Day, Immunization Day and Senior Citizen Issues Forums. Armando currently serves on the Board of Directors for the Aldine-Greenspoint YMCA. He has worked tirelessly to increase outreach community service programs, such as youth sports leagues and adult General Education Degree (GED) programs for Aldine/North Houston residents.
With the support from community leaders, friends and family Armando, is ready to work for District 140.

This will be one of the biggest Democratic primaries to watch in Harris County next year. Can we take out a Craddick Dem for the third straight cycle? I’m beginning to hear that Rep. Kevin Bailey is saying that he’ll support Rep. Senfronia Thompson for Speaker, but I don’t have a whole lot of faith in that. Best to vote in Armando Walle and remove all doubt. Stace has more.
