Houston –Community leaders recently gathered at the University of St. Thomas to share their thoughts with Montrose’s representative, U.S. Congressman Ted Poe. The Montrose Roundtable was Congressman Poe’s third roundtable meeting in his Congressional District. Poe initiated the community roundtables to hear directly from local leaders on issues he can assist with on a federal level.

Much of the discussion centered on healthcare reform and transit. Other topics of interest included immigration, higher education, public safety, and housing affordability. The discussion gave Congressman Poe and his staff many ideas to consider for future legislation and projects.

“Community Roundtables have been effective all over the district,” said Representative Poe. “There’s no better way to set community priorities and come up with solutions. I appreciate the attendees’ feedback and encourage all District 2 constituents to contact my office anytime with their thoughts and ideas.”

Congressman Ted Poe represents the Second Congressional District of Texas which includes the areas of Montrose, Museum District, Rice University, portions of the Houston Heights, Washington Corridor and Memorial Park as well as Spring Branch and suburban Northern Harris County. He is a senior member of the Judiciary Committee and Foreign Affairs Committee where he serves as Chairman of the Terrorism Subcommittee.

The meeting was featured on Congressman Ted Poe’s Facebook Page.
