Sallie is a mom, wife, friend, volunteer, and dedicated public servant. She’s no stranger to City Hall where she has earned a reputation for being a strong staff leader with sharp analytical skills and a keen political sense. She served three council members, the city’s flood czar, and held two positions in the housing and community development department. Her passion for public policy is well reflected in her work on a broad range of issues including flood mitigation, transportation, city finances, housing, economic development, and infrastructure.

As chief of staff to the chair of the budget and fiscal affairs committee, Sallie learned to navigate the city’s $5 billion budget. She helped develop the city’s comprehensive financial policies and orchestrated five years of budget hearings. She was heavily involved in initial Harvey recovery efforts and obtained grant funding to advance green stormwater infrastructure initiatives. She assembled and managed a task force to tackle redevelopment and flooding policies, worked with council members to identify neighborhood drainage projects, and led the charge to bring Houston’s Adopt-A-Drain Program to life.
