Council Member Melissa Noriega was elected to finish the unexpired At Large #3 term of Shelley Sekula Gibbs in June of 2007, and has been re-elected for full terms twice since. She’s the chair of the Public Safety and Homeland Security Committee on Council, a former HISD employee, and the wife of former State Rep. and 2008 Senate candidate Rick Noriega. She’s also one of my favorite people in government, and it’s always a pleasure to talk with her.
You can find a list of all interviews for this cycle, plus other related information, on my 2011 Elections page.
UPDATE: Since someone asked, let me make it clear that CM Noriega is running for re-election to her third full term. Her first re-election in 2007 was for her first full term; the unexpired portion of Sekula Gibbs’ term, for which she won a special election runoff in June, doesn’t count towards her term limits total.
