Bess, a life-long member of the Houston community who recently received the endorsement of Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner, launched her campaign for Houston City Council At-Large #2 in January 2023. The focal point of Bess' campaign is her commitment to representing all segments of Houston's diverse and vibrant community at City Hall. Her vision encompasses providing critical resources in education, public safety, youth and senior initiatives, community programs, infrastructure, environmental preservation, arts and entertainment, business opportunities, small business support, and transportation.

Bess holds a bachelor’s degree in communications from the University of Texas at Arlington with Cum Laude honors, and an Executive MBA from Texas Women’s University. As the daughter of a U.S. Navy Veteran and a Woman-Owned Small Business/Entrepreneur, who were both raised in the segregated south, the characteristics of strength, service, leadership, and hard work were instilled in her at a young age.

Bess has worked with prominent leaders at all levels of government including Obama for America (Houston), Sheila Jackson Lee for Congress Campaign (15 years), Annise Parker for Mayor, and Ron Kirk for Senate Campaign and has a proven track record of excellence in public and government affairs, conflict resolution, strategic communications, fundraising, project management and community outreach initiatives.

The 15-year licensed Texas Real Estate Professional has also served as a project manager and sales consultant for affordable housing developments that have placed over 100 families in newly constructed single-family properties, with a 0% foreclosure rating. She has assisted in the disaster recovery efforts that focused on the rebuilding and/or remodeling of the homes of Senior citizens throughout Houston and has been an active part of many community development projects, funded from both the private and public sector, that removed blight and created beautification concepts in spaces that were historically underserved.

In addition to the recent endorsement from Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner, Bess has received endorsements from key national, state, and local leaders and organizations, further solidifying her standing in the race:
