Campaign themes

Mann stated that one of his major concerns is adapting to the changing demographics in the district, as well as population growth. He supports extracurricular activities, the expansion of technology, fewer state-mandated tests and career and technical education.[3]

What was at stake?

A significant topic that faced the district this year is the potential for growth and dealing with the fiscal issues that go along with it. As a result of a new Exxon Mobil campus, as well as the arrival of The Grand Parkway, both coming in 2015, the district is looking to hire nearly 200 new personnel in 2014.[4]

Two seats were up for election on November 5, 2013. Those seats were for Positions 6 & 7, held by Paul Lanham and Rick Mann, respectively. Both incumbents won re-election.

Demographics

Harris County overperformed in comparison to the rest of Texas in terms of higher education achievement in 2012. The United States Census Bureau found that 28.1 percent of Harris County residents aged 25 years and older had attained a bachelor's degree compared to 26.3 percent for Texas as a whole.

Racial Demographics, 2012[5]
Race Harris County (%) Texas (%)
White 70.7 80.3
Black or African American 19.5 12.4
American Indian and Alaska Native 1.1 1.0
Asian 6.8 4.3
Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander 0.1 0.1
Two or More Races 1.7 1.8
Hispanic or Latino 41.6 38.4

Note: The United States Census Bureau considers "Hispanic or Latino" to be a place of origin, not a race. Therefore, the Census allows citizens to report both their race and that they are from a "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin simultaneously. As a result, the percentages in each column of the racial demographics table will exceed 100 percent. Each column will add up to 100 percent after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages, although rounding by the Census Bureau may make the total one or two tenths off from being exactly 100 percent.[7]
