"We’re just public servants, that’s it. We don’t have a business that we’re trying to get some publication for, we’re not developers, we're not realtors, we’re just public servants.

I feel like strong councils should have people from many different viewpoints gathered around an issue." - Elizabeth Cunha
"I just want College Station to stay the great place to raise a family it has been for me."
"Right now the main concern is 'how do we get College Station opening and functioning?' [...] I think that's important, to be able to shift and respond to what's happening right this minute."
“It’s important that we have a ground-level understanding if we’re really going to be able to do some things city wide,” she explained. “I think the more you know the details, the more you can drive the vision."
“When reviewing candidate qualifications, remember the job of a council member is not to impersonate staff or replace staff. The roll of a council member is to listen to your concerns, your priorities, and your vision, and communicate those effectively to our capable staff to employ as their guide and direction to carry our their work."
