Last October, Harris County Commissioners Court voted 3-2 on a new map for Commissioner Precinct boundaries that impacts over 2.3 million residents. Although the final transition is set to be complete by March 31, 2022, it's likely that you are now in a new jurisdiction.

County Commissioners are responsible for maintaining roads, bridges, parks, and community centers that do not fall within the jurisdictions of cities, the state, or privately-owned entities. If you've been reporting potholes, requesting ditch maintenance, or submitting other requests to a Commissioner, you'll want to double-check who represents you now.

Commissioner Precinct 3 is led by Tom Ramsey. Under the new map, Precinct 3 now spans as far west as Cypress - as far north as Tomball - and as far east as Crosby. It encompasses approximately 47% of all unincorporated Harris County, including over 6,300 lane miles of roadway, 66 parks, and 10 Community and Nature Centers.

Precinct 3 is home to nearly a dozen community centers, 15 school districts, about 1,000 neighborhoods, and the nation's longest urban-forested corridor - the Spring Creek Greenway.

From the lively city lights in the Villages to the country prairie skies in Huffman, Precinct 3 is the place to live, play, and worship!
Commissioner Ramsey listens to you, and ensures you’re represented
at every Commissioners Court.
Commissioner Tom Ramsey was elected to serve as County Commissioner for Harris County Precinct 3 in November of 2020. A native of Crockett, Texas, he holds more than 40 years of experience as a Professional Engineer, and has served more than 50 Texas cities and 20 counties.

Ramsey brings forth proven solutions and knows what works and what doesn’t. He has a long track record of improving the safety, infrastructure, livability, and financial health of the communities he serves. Ramsey served as the Mayor of Spring Valley Village from 2012-2020 - reducing the city’s tax rate by 21% and investing more than $38 million in infrastructure. He has served on the Harris County Storm Water Task Force and the Imelda Assistance Fund Board.
As County Commissioner, Ramsey continues to prioritize safer neighborhoods, lowering taxes, and improving infrastructure.
  • He launched a Crime Task Force earlier this year, which is comprised of over a dozen law enforcement agencies from County and City jurisdictions, to combat the rising crime rate.
  • In addition to his strong advocacy for law enforcement, Commissioner Ramsey works closely with local, state, and federal partners to find innovative solutions for flood risk reduction - the most notable being “The Big Drain,” a proven concept of large underground tunnels that would move water to the drainage outfalls.
  • Additionally, Ramsey led in securing the most significant tax revenue decrease supported by all 5 Commissioners Court members.
Ramsey’s strong faith drives his work at Second Baptist Houston, where he is a deacon and serves on the board of Loving Kids, a local initiative launched to help underserved Houston children.
He's a longtime resident of Harris County of more than over 30 years, and a graduate of Texas A & M University with a B.S. in Civil Engineering. He and his wife, Marsha, have three children and seven grandchildren.

Harris County is led by five Commissioners Court members - four Commissioners and one County Judge. They determine tax rates and are responsible for allocating approximately $6 billion worth of funding for pertinent services. These services include the criminal justice system, infrastructure, flood control, hospital district, public health, elections, and much more.

Commissioner offices also assist local law enforcement agencies during disasters, such as conducting high-water rescues during flood events, water distributions during and after storms, and roadway clearing during wind events.
