Harvin Moore, HoustonISD Trustee District VII, Tells Houston Kids what He Likes About Houston
Houston is a big city, but the more we know about it, the smaller it feels. In an effort to better understand the local government, the BigKidSmallCity crew spent the election season meeting the people involved.
Now we want to congratulate Harvin Moore on his re-election to the HoustonISD Board!
The kids (ages 4-7) interviewed him to find out what he likes about Houston. Read on to see what he thinks about our great city!
1. What do you like to do in Houston?
I like to get outside and do sports. I like to run, swim, and workout in the gym, and I also like to go to my son and daughter’s games – they play volleyball, soccer, baseball, swimming and track.
2. What is your favorite thing about Houston?
Houston is a friendly, positive, open-minded city, more than any other city I have lived in or visited. That’s why we have been the fastest growing large city in America ever since 1960. We are the future of America and the world, and that is exciting to me. When I get stuck in traffic, I realize and remind myself that the traffic is increasing because so many people want to come here and live. It’s a wonderful place. For cooler weather and mountains I travel, but I can’t think of a better place to live.
3. What is your favorite Houston annual event?
My favorite annual event is high school graduation. On that day I shake the hands and look into the eyes of hundreds and hundreds of happy seniors who are about to go off to college, where they will work hard and play hard and become adults. That experience is sort of like my paycheck for my job as a trustee.
