Purpose of this survey is to discover what Houston area residents think about issues addressed by members of Congress and the state legislature that affect their lives. The goal is to use the responses to inform candidates on what's important to their constituents. This is an anonymous survey and there are no funding requests associated with it. We hope that the results of this survey will lead to better legislative representation for all in the Houston metropolitan area.
