Rozier Campaigns for Downtown and the Neighborhoods of District 3
Galveston, Texas – As Galveston continues to stand at one of the most crucial junctures in its history, Sheryl Rozier has stepped forward for Downtown and the neighborhoods of District 3.
"I am running for Galveston City Council, District 3 because I want to be a positive voice and attitude on a council, which currently finds too many ways to disagree rather than move our community forward. I'm Sheryl Rozier and I want to work for the citizens of District 3 and the people of Galveston.”
Rozier, an experienced community activist with an architecture degree from the University of Houston and a strong background in engineering, is running for the District 3 seat on Galveston City Council in the May 2012 election. She has pledged to improve the quality of life by aggressively promoting economic development, while remaining attuned to the needs of local businesses and neighborhoods. Rozier values the Island’s historic heritage and understands the unique and sensitive coastal environment.
“Galveston continues to be at a crossroads, and it is critical we provide strong, new leadership that can come to the table and work together,” says Rozier. “I want the best for my neighbors and fellow citizens, and I firmly believe that a consensus on Council is essential to Galveston’s recovery and progress.”
Rozier will work to support businesses and neighborhoods with new and improved infrastructure, create jobs by attracting new business that will foster home ownership and assist her fellow Galvestonians with their individual issues; thus ensuring a better quality of life for her neighbors on the Island.
Combining her professional skills in architecture and engineering, her years of community involvement and her genuine heartfelt love for the Island and its residents, Rozier can offer a unique perspective for solving the problems other candidates have yet to fully understand.
Sheryl Rozier was born in Austin and raised in Seabrook. After moving to Galveston in 1999, Rozier began studying how local government worked and was intrigued by how one person’s vote really does matter.
As commissioner and chairwoman of the Zoning Board of Adjustment for six years, Rozier observed and upheld the city’s zoning standards with strict code enforcement that focused on the public’s health and life safety issues. As Chair of the City of Galveston Park Board of Trustees, Rozier worked on critical recovery projects and helped promote Galveston tourism by showcasing its diversity and its natural resources.
Rozier’s public service comes naturally to her and serves as an outlet for her energy and her enthusiasm about Galveston.
“Taking a dedicated, active role in Galveston is important to me,” says Rozier. “I don’t wait for others to act. When I see a problem, I enjoy rolling up my sleeves to volunteer in finding a solution.”
When elected, Sheryl Rozier has a desire to foster a relationship that focuses on supporting our business community in their growth and development, working for continued safer neighborhoods, a cleaner island with a proven recycling plan, improvement of the City’s infrastructure, and will use her passion to focus on a more resilient Island.
“I have been proud of my work on behalf of our community and these have been commitments I have not taken lightly. I have worked hard and tried to make a positive difference. My husband Joe and I love this Island and want to see it thrive.”
