About Diana Martinez Alexander
My name is Diana Martinez Alexander. I am a passionate educator, activist, organizer and voice for my community.
I am also running to be your next Harris County Commissioner for Precinct 3.
Precinct 3 deserves a commissioner who represents our community with passion, transparency, knowledge, and the willingness to listen. We deserve to have someone on Commissioners Court who will seek justice and equality for all under the law, someone who has spent time fighting for our kids, our parents, our neighbors, and our friends.
County Commissioners Court needs advocates from our community, who work everyday to make our county and our country better. I am a daughter of immigrants from right here in Harris County. I was the first in my family to go to college. getting a Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies from California State University, Los Angeles. I went on to earn a Master of Arts in Multicultural Urban Special Education and completed coursework for Educational Diagnostician and Principal from University of St. Thomas.
As an educator in a large, Houston-area urban school district, I have served special education students, linguistically diverse populations, and lower socio-economic communities. I’ve seen the struggles my students, their parents, and my fellow teachers and compassion workers go through.
They deserve better. I want them to have the same opportunities I had growing up to become the #HoustonStrong community leader I am today.
