  1. It is time for Houston to have a Transgender member of the government. There I s a T in LBGT.

  2. Her running for public office is great ! it takes courage to be involved in government, and even more when you are transgendered, her service is a credit to all of us in the trans community !!!

  3. Thanks for the comments! And Krista Ann, you’re right. It takes courage!

  4. I’ve known Jenifer for a long time and can vouch for her compassion, intelligence and dedication. She’s a perfect candidate because she’d be perfect on the Houston city council … and even higher office.
