Supporting the Historic Transition of Judge-elect Hidalgo
On November 6th, 2018, voters in Harris County, TX made history when they elected Lina Hidalgo as their first female County Judge. A 27-year old immigrant from Colombia, Lina has spent her life working on issues of human rights and social justice. Her campaign to assume the leadership of the third largest county in the United States and victory over the 11-year Republican incumbent has attracted enormous enthusiasm and a movement of followers.
As Judge-elect Hidalgo prepares to take office in 2019, she has assembled a team to translate her energy and values into her administration: demonstrating that progressive governance can be inclusive, equitable, transparent, and effective. Building off of our experience in innovative and inclusive governance transitions, HR&A is proud to be a part of this team, assisting with Lina’s transition, including setting up her new office and staffing, identifying and articulating policy priorities, and leading the strategy behind community engagement.
