Thank you @Tejasimo for a well run and hard fought campaign. I look forward to working together for the benefit of District H residents and the City we love.

There were 69 late mail-in ballots in the District H race to be counted, according to the Harris County clerk's office. In the initial results of the Dec. 14 runoff, Cisneros' lead was 12 votes.
Longoria conceded the victory Friday evening, telling her supporters that she would not ask for a recount.
"I’ve built a life around the principle ‘every vote matters’ and, today, I saw this ideal become a reality. We saw democracy in action in District H during the past weeks, days and hours," Longoria wrote in a statement posted to her campaign Facebook page. "My public service has never been based on being an elected official, and I look forward to being of service in Houston in a new adventure."
According to the Harris County clerk's election reports, there are 82,144 registered voters in District H.
