Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee released the following statement regarding Chevron's announcement to expand to downtown Houston:
"I am pleased that Chevron plans to construct an office building in downtown Houston to accommodate its business growth and expanding workforce in the world's energy capital. As Houston's Downtown District continues its revitalization, Chevron's urban campus will contribute to the city's goal of providing a vibrant and diverse city center for tenants and retailers alike. This expansion will create more than 1,700 jobs in Houston and will open the doors to significant opportunities for Texas families. Chevron's long-term commitment to Houston and Texas is evident.
"I congratulate Chevron on this expansion and will continue to support their efforts to serve Houston and Texas. Chevron invests millions in the greater Houston community and their employees also donate thousands of hours annually volunteering to help improve the lives of people across the area. We will continue to work together to strengthen and enrich our communities while focusing on creating jobs for Houston."
