Being at the forefront of advocating for education, healthcare and economic empowerment is who I am and what I've always been about."
At a recent fundraising reception, Reynolds affirmed, "When I'm elected as your State Representative, I'll be accessible, accountable and effective. That's what the people of District 27 deserve. The residents need to know that I won't quit--I'll fight hard for them. I urge all Fort Bend County residents to vote on March 2 for real, effective leadership in Austin. There's just too much at stake not to."
