My name is Robert Glaser and I am a candidate for Houston Community College System Trustee, District V. I was born and raised in the district, living here almost my entire life. I am a product of HISD schools, attending Poe Elementary, Lanier Middle School, and graduating Lamar High School. I even took a few college level courses at HCC, back when it was a part of HISD.
Over 25 years ago I founded, and continue to operate, a manufacturing company that services the oilfield and petrochemical industry. I have been married for over 19 years and have 3 children. I have been a homeowner in the district for over 15 years, living just three blocks from my childhood home!
I received both BA and BS degrees from the University of Texas at Austin. After returning to Houston, I went to work and attended night classes, earning an MBA from the University of St. Thomas.
I have been active in many local issues, including initiating action to extend deed restrictions in my neighborhood that were about to expire by helping to create ‘micro legislation’ in Austin to address the issue. These actions allowed my neighbors to continue to enjoy deed restriction protection, without creating a Property Owners Association.
I want to bring my many years of business acumen to the board of Houston Community College to continue its mission of providing affordable and accessible educational and training options for our community.
We have one of the strongest economies in the nation- anchored by a vibrant energy and healthcare industry. Each of these industries, and many others in our community, are in constant demand for skilled employees. HCC is one of the ‘biggest tools in the box’ in providing programs for folks to obtain the skills necessary to obtain these high paying jobs.
