Commissioner Garcia for Precint 2 residentsSince the dawning days of the Republic of Texas, Harris County Precinct Two has been at the heart of what it means to be a Texan. It was here that Sam Houston spurred Texas to victory at the Battle of San Jacinto. And it was here that mission control witnessed man’s first steps on the moon. From the Texas oil boom at the turn of the 20th century, to the construction of a ship channel 50 miles inland that has become one of the largest ports in the world, East Harris County has always been a cornerstone of Texas history and Texas commerce.
 
And today, Precinct Two is a vital economic engine that continues to fuel the growth and prosperity of Harris County. Home to Houston’s petrochemical industry, the Johnson Space Center, and the aerospace centers at Ellington Field and NASA, the precinct is Texas’ hub for technology, innovation, and industry.
 
Spanning 435 square miles and stretching north to Aldine, east to Baytown, and south to the Galveston County line, Precinct Two is rich in geography, cultural traditions, and people. Its boundaries encompass 15 municipalities, 12 school districts, and numerous unincorporated areas. And each is an integral part of the deep history and the promising future of East Harris County. 
 
Since taking office in 2003, County Commissioner Sylvia Garcia has been laying a strong foundation for the future of Precinct Two. By investing in infrastructure, protecting quality of life, strengthening economic development, and providing opportunities for seniors and youth, she is working to ensure that Precinct Two is a good place to live, work, and raise a family.

Under Commissioner Garcia’s leadership, Precinct Two is poised to embrace the prosperity of tomorrow, without leaving yesterday's legacy behind.
